The name Dudley in Ireland is often of immigrant origin having been introduced into Ulster Province by settlers from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic O'Dubhdaleithe Sept of County Cork also sometimes anglicized their name as Dudley, as well as the more usual Dowdall.
Origen: Normando. In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the Dudley family lived in the important town of Dudley in the county of Worcestershire. The name of this town was originally derived from the Old English personal name Dudda and the Old English word leah, which means woodland clearing; thus it means Dudda's glade. The surname Dudley belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. First found in Worcestershire where they held a family seat from very early times.
Variantes: Dudley, Dudlie, Dudly y otros.
