The earliest origins of the family name Edrox date back to the Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name given to a person who was known among other folk as rich and affluent. The surname Edrox 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.

Edrox Early Origins



The surname Edrox 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



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John Edridge and his wife Elizabeth who arrived in west New Jersey in 1664.
