GOODRIDGE Family History

Recorded in many spellings as shown below, this is an English residential surname. It is either locational from the village of Goodrich in the county of Hereford, or more usually it derives from the Olde English pre 7th century personal name Godric translating as 'God- rule'. Given such a meaning it is not perhaps surprising that the surname has developed widely and today includes many spellings including Goodrich, Goodredge, Goodridge, Gooderidge, Gooderick, Goodrick, Goodricke, Godrich, and Godridge.
