LEDWITH Family HistoryThis unusual name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational surname deriving from the place called Ledwyche in Shropshire, now known as Lower and Upper Ledwyche. The original settlement was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Ledewic", and in 1155 as "Ledewich", while the 1242 Feet of Fines of the county refer to "Ledewiz". The placename is derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century "hleda", seat, bench, or edge, or from an Olde English personal name, "Leoda", with "wic", dairy-farm, dwelling-place, hamlet.
