Eydes Coat of Arms / Eydes Family Crest

The surname of EYDES was a baptismal name 'the son of Eddie', it was an ancient and still popular font name. Following the crusades in Europe from the 11th to the 13th century, a need was felt for a family name in addition to the name that had been given at birth. This was recognised by those of noble birth as it added prestige and practical advantage to their status. Most of the European surnames in countries such as England, Scotland and France were formed in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The process had started somewhat earlier and had continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the tenth and eleventh centuries people did not have surnames, whereas by the fifteenth century most of the population had acquired a second name. The name is also spelt EYDE, EADE, EADES and EDES. Early records of the name mention Symon filius Ede, County Huntingdonshire in 1273. Robertus Eade of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Robert Ede was documented in County Somerset during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Audrian Awdryan and Christiane Ede were married in London in 1565. Robert, son of Robert Eades was baptised at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in 1670. James Eade and Abigail Chamberlain were married at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1773. A notable member of the name was John Eade (1810-1876) the Scottish theologian and scholar, born in Alva. He published 'Biblical Cyclopaedia' in 1848, and a critical history of the English Bible in 1876. William Ede married Margary Bishop at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in 1803. Another notable member of the name was Samuel EYDE (1866-1940) the Norwegian engineer, born in Arendal. He was educated in Germany where he worked as a structural engineer for some time. He developed an economic electric arc process for the fixation of nitrogen, using Norway's abundant hydro-electric power. In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity. As far as records show, true heraldry began in the middle of the 12th century, and appeared almost simultaneously in several countries of Western Europe.
