The history of the name Eritadge begins in the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was a name for a person who held or occupied land inherited by an ancestor instead of acquiring it by means of the Feudal System. The surname Eritadge is derived from the Old English word heritage, which in turn comes from the Old French words eritage and heritage. These words are derived from the Late Latin word heritagium, which comes from the word heres, which means heir.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Eritadge or a variant listed above: Roger Eritage, who sailed to Barbados in 1635; Richard Heritage to New Jersey in 1664; W. Heritage to San Francisco, Cal. in 1850 and Mary Houlihan Heritage to Nova Scotia in 1838..
