RIDGE Family History

Recorded in many spellings including Ridge, Rudge, Rigg, Rigge, and the probably patronymic Ridges and Rudges, as well as Ridger and Ridgers, meaning one who lived at or worked at a place called Ridge, this is an English surname. It is residential or topographical for a person who lived at the ridge of a hill, or who came from one of the several places called Ridge, Ridge Hill, or The Ridge, found throughout England. The derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "hrycg", which in later Middle English changed to "rigge".
