The generations and branches of the Doidman family share a name that has its roots in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name Doidman comes from the short form of Rodger or Roger.

Doidman Early Origins



The surname Doidman was first found in Kent where they held a family seat from very early times. The name dates back to the Exon Domesday where a class of men were called Dodomanni, later to be known as Dodeman and Deudman. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Doidman Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Doidman include Dodman, Doddman, Duddman, Dudman, Doidman and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Doidman or a variant listed above: John Dodman who settled in Virginia in 1637; Henry Dudman settled in Virginia in 1635; Phillip Dudeman who settled in Philadelphia in the year 1733.
