Eddins Surname History

Origins

The name Eddins first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the region of Eden in Durham. The surname Eddins is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names from the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came.

Ancient History

Throughout the Dark Ages, as Rome slowly faded, the written word was preserved by men of the Church. Documents such as the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles were preserved within the sturdy walls of the monasteries. These records have survived to this day, allowing us the opportunity to study the history of this Anglo-Saxon surname, Eddins. Professional historians have surveyed these records and found the first record of the Eddins surname in Suffolk. Hellaby Hall in Stainton, in the West Riding of Yorkshire was an ancient mansion on the property of Sir R. J. Eden, but is now a farmhouse. [1] Some of the family have recently branched to Windleston in Durham. "It comprises by computation 1250 acres, and has been long the property of the Eden family, of whom Sir Robert Johnson Eden, Bart., rebuilt Windleston Hall about twenty years since [(1860s.)] " [1] West Auckland in Durham also had some early records of the family. "The place gives the title of Baron to the family of Eden, who formerly resided here: the estates now belong to Sir R. J. Eden, Bart." [3]

Early History

The history of the Anglo-Saxons provides an important backdrop to the history of the Eddins family. The Saxons were a Teutonic tribe of people originally from what is now the Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany. They began to settle in southeastern England in about the year 400 A.D. Over the next four hundred years they forced the ancient Britons to the edges of the island, into Wales, Cornwall, Cumbria and Southern Scotland. The Angles, another Teutonic tribe, occupied the east coast, north of the Saxons. The Angle and Saxon cultures blended together as they came to dominate the country.[4]

At the end of the 10th century the Danes invaded England and the Anglo-Saxon rulers never truly recovered their lost power. In 1066 Duke William of Normandy disputed the royal succession in England and brought an army to enforce his claim. The success of the Normans at the Battle of Hastings brought the final end to Anglo-Saxon rule. However, despite this change of leadership, the culture of the common man in England was an Anglo-Saxon culture. During their early development, the Eddins family was found in Suffolk. The name was first recorded in the county of Suffolk just to the north of London about the year 1270 were they were recorded as having manor and lands. Within the century the name had branched northward to Yorkshire, and Durham, the family seat being at West Auckland, in Durham. They became the Barons Auckland and the Earls of Auckland. The Barons Henly were also Edens. They branched to Beamish Park in Durham, Ballingdon Hamlet in Essex, and Sandwich in Kent. They flourished until the Middle Ages on their many estates.[5]
