The present generation of the Doteridge family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived close to a region called Dodda's ridge. The name is derived from the local of Dodridge, likely in Devon or the southwest country.

Doteridge Early Origins



The surname Doteridge was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Doteridge Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Doteridge include Dodderidge, Doderidge, Dodderige, Doderige, Dotteridge and many more.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Doteridge were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Davie Dodderidge who settled in Barbados in 1635; along with Jarvis and Thomas; George Dodderidge settled in Virginia in 1670 along with John; Thomas Dodderidge settled in Virginia in 1635..
