Maddox Family History

This distinguished surname, with variant spellings Maddock(s), Maddick(s), Mattock(s), Mattack(s), etc., and having more than fifteen Coats of Arms, has its roots in the ancient Welsh male given name Matoc, a diminutive of "mad" meaning "fortunate" or "good", which survives in the modern Welsh personal name Madog. One, Madoch (without surname) was noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 for Gloucestershire, and Madog, (1150 - 1180), son of Owain Gwynedd, King of North Wales, is believed by some to have discovered America. Kenwrec filius (son of) Maddoc, and Madoc de Sotton appear in the Pipe Rolls of Shropshire in 1161 and 1272 respectively...
