It is thought that the Priddy 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.

The surname Priddy was first found in Somerset, where they held a family seat. The Welsh, or Ancient British influence on 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 British surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1320 when John Priddle held estates in this county bordering Wales.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Pritwell, Prittle, Priddle, Pridell, Pritell, Priddell, Pridle, Prittle, Prittell, Pridwell, Priddy, Pridley, Pridie, Pridy, Pribble, Preddle, Prebble and many more.
