The name Edradge is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Edradge was a name used for a person who was known among other folk as rich and affluent. The surname Edradge 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.

Edradge Early Origins



The surname Edradge 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.

Edradge 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 Edradge include Edridge, Edrick and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Edradge were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: John Edridge and his wife Elizabeth who arrived in west New Jersey in 1664.
