LYDON Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Lidden, Liddon, Lydon, Lyddon and Lydden, this very interesting English surname is locational. It is derived from villages in Kent and the West Country of England and specifically the counties of Devon and Somerset. The place name and hence the later surname means the dweller at the place of the loud water, from the Olde English pre 7th century word "hlyde" meaning loud. In this context it probably described a waterfall, with the suffix of "-dun", meaning a hill or a place on a hill. The village of Lydden, near Dover in the county of Kent, is still a prominent place, however the village of Lyddon which may have existed in the Somerset area of the West Country, is either Lidden in the neighbouring county of Dorset, which seems likely, or is one of the five thousand or so now "lost" medieval villages and hamlets, of which the only surviving public memory is the modern surname...
