The surname Lorderdale 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.

During the era when a person's name, tribe and posterity was one of his most important possessions, many different spellings were found in the archives examined. Lorderdale occurred in many references, and spelling variations of the name found included Lauderdale, Latherdale, Lawderdale, Lauderdall, Lauderdal, Lorderdale and many more.
