Does anyone know the origins of the surname Ordidge?
Has anyone found a link between the families located in the Willenhallarea of the Midlands and those on the Derbyshire Nottingham border?

Thanks Marion Ordidge

For possible origin

Such info can almost always be found by googling

I can't help with your question, but out of interest, which branch are you from? We have a small connection to the Church Gresley Ordidges via a marriage to a 2nd cousin of one of my ancestors.
