CODD Family History

This interesting surname may be a metonymic occupational name for a maker of purses and bags, deriving from the Old English pre 7th Century "cod(e)" meaning "bag". It may also be a metonymic occupational nickname for a fishmonger, deriving from the Middle English "codde" meaning "fish". Finally, it may be a variant of Cody which is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic O Cuidighthigh meaning "descendant of Cuidightheach", a byname for a helpful person. The surname dates back to the mid 12th Century, (see below). Further recordings include John Lecod (1219), witness, "The Assize Rolls of Yorkshire", and Henry Cod (1273) "The Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire"...

My father is John Codd from Wexford who worked in London in the Sixties. He was born in 1947 and I would love to know more about him and his family
