The origins of the Edrach surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a person who was known among other folk as rich and affluent. The surname Edrach originally derived from the Old English word Eadric which referred to wealth and power. This surname comes from a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames. Nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Edrach Early Origins



The surname Edrach was first found in Wiltshire 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Edrachs to arrive in North America: John Edridge and his wife Elizabeth who arrived in west New Jersey in 1664.
