URIDGE or EURIDGE is a very unique name with only 121 instances in the UK Office of National Statistics database for 2002. This website details all known current and past occurrences worldwide of the names URIDGE and EURIDGE, and their variants. It provides family history of these familes as opposed to one particular pedigree. Scroll down on this page for the origins and variants of the names. 

There are three main family groups, originating from branches in Sussex and Kent. The latter includes my own family who settled in Devon. Several descendants of these branches have emigrated to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States of America.

Detailed narratives are available and can be easily searched in the surnames section, or by searching the website. Additionally there are descendancy charts of the main families available. You will also find a series of databases on births, marriages and deaths, and wills that are linked to an achive held with the Guild of One-Name Studies.

A summarization of resources searched together with a list of sources in the narrative section, details what records are included in the One-Name Study. Additionally you will find What's New, which provides a chronological listing of what has recently changed on the website. There are also lists available on the website. For example, a list of people in the 1901 census, or a list of certificates available.

Additionally, you will find information on other fellow URIDGE or EURIDGE researchers. If you would like to contribute, or require additional information, please contact me. Any information that you provide will be fully credited.

I hope that you enjoy your visit here and that you find something to help you in your research.
