Etteridge Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Etteridge include Etheridge, Etheredge, Etherege, Etherige, Ettridge, Etridge, Attridge and many more.

For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Etteridge or a variant listed above: Henry Etheridge who settled in Virginia in 1654; Sarah Etheridge who settled in New England in 1773; Thomas Etheridge settled in Maryland in 1722.
