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

Marion,

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.
