BURRIDGE Family History

This long-established surname has two distinct possible sources, each with its own history and derivation. Firstly, Burridge may be of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from any of three places so called in Devonshire. The placename derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "burh", fort, and "hrycg", ridge; hence, "fort on a ridge". Secondly, the surname may derive from the Middle English given name "Burrich", from the Olde English "Burgric", composed of the elements "burh, burg", a fortress, stronghold, and "ric", power.
