The surname Frady was first found in Staffordshire at Fradley, a village and civil parish in Lichfield District. Fradley heath formed part of the extensive waste of Alrewas-Hay, but was inclosed about 1805. [1] The village dates back to the 12 century when it was first recorded as 'Frodeleye', or 'Frod's lea'. Alrewas and Fradley, was a large civil parish that was divided into the two new parishes of Alrewas and Fradley in 2009.

A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Friday, Fridaye, Freeday, Freyday, Feraday, Fareday, Fryeday, Farraday, Farady, Fridey, Faraday, Frieday, Fryday and many more.
