ROUTLEDGE Family History

This name, with variant spellings Rutledge, Rudledge, Rookledge and Rucklidge, is chiefly found on the English\Scottish borders, and is believed to be of topographical origin from residence by a borders stream named with the Northern Medieval English 'rout', itself coming from the Scandinavian 'ruta' meaning a roar of loud noise, plus the Medieval English 'lache' or 'leche', a stream. There is a place in Cumbria called Routledge Burn, but surname derivation from this spot is unlikely as the place was not recorded until the 16th Century, and the surname first appears on record in Scotland towards the end of the 15th Century, (see below).
