It is thought that the Priddell surname may be one of the Welsh "patronymics," or names created from the father's name. In this case the name was derived from the Welsh "ap Ridel," or "son of Ridel," an ancient Welsh name from the parish of Lillieslead, County Roxburgh.

Early Origins of the Priddell family


The surname Priddell was first found in Somerset, where they held a family seat. The family name was first referenced in the year 1320 when John Priddle held estates in this county bordering Wales.

Priddy is a parish, in the union of Wells, hundred of Wells-Forum in Somerset that dates back to at least 1182 when it was first listed as Pridia and probably meant "earth house" from the Celtic word "prith" + "ti". [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
