The surname lauderdale was first found in Berwickshire where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded in 1472 in Latherdale in West Berwickshire.

The name lauderdale, appeared in many references, and from time to time, the surname was spelt Lauderdale, Latherdale, Lawderdale, Lauderdall, Lauderdal, Lorderdale and many more.
