An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Penroddocke surname is derived from the Middle English word "ruddock," in turn from the Old English "ruddoc," meaning "red;" and it has been suggested that the name was taken on as nickname for someone "robin-like." The surname no doubt also came from the place named Penruddock, a small village in the English county of Cumbria.

Penroddocke Early Origins



The surname Penroddocke was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century.
