REDDINGTON Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Redington, Reddington, Ridenton and the very rare Riddington, this is an English locational surname, which is also well recorded in Ireland. It apparently originates from a place called Reddington, but no such place is to be found in any of the gazetters. This suggests that either the place name is now spelt differently from earlier times, which is a common occurence, or the surname is one of the five thousand or so British surnames which originate from now 'lost' medieval sites, of whjch the only public reminder in the 20th century is the surname. Between the 15th and the 18th century many thousands of villages were 'cleared' of their tenants to encourage the development of sheep farming, which required less labour...
