The lineage of the name Siddenghan begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the parish of Sydenham found in the counties of Devon, Oxfordshire and Somerset. These place-names were derived from the Old English terms sid meaning wide and hamm meaning water meadow. Siddenghan is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. During the Middle Ages, as society became more complex, individuals needed a way to be distinguishable from others. Toponymic surnames were developed as a result of this need. Various features in the landscape or area were used to distinguish people from one another. In this case the original bearers of the surname Siddenghan were named due to their close proximity to the wide water meadow.

Siddenghan Early Origins



The surname Siddenghan was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat as Lords of Sydenham from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Siddenghan were among those contributors: Richard Sidenham, who arrived in Barbados in 1670; Mary Sydenham, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1682; William Sydenham, a servant sent to Virginia in 1674.
