The ancestors of the name Kerridge date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Kerridge family lived in the village of Kerridge found in the parish of Prestbury in the county of Cheshire.

Kerridge Early Origins



The surname Kerridge was first found in Cheshire, in the village of Kerridge. The place name was derived from "key ridge." However, we must look to Suffolk for the earliest record of the family as John Kerrage was registered there in 1297. Two years later, the family "occurs in the records of Dunwich for 1299."

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 Kerridge or a variant listed above:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nunquam Non Paratus
Motto Translation: Never unprepared.
