Meaning & History

It is locational from a "lost" medieval village probably called Doderige, since that is the spelling in the first name recording (see below). It is estimated that some three thousand villages and hamlets have disappeared from the maps of Britain over the past thousand years. The main cause of these "disappearances" was the enforced clearing and dispersal of former inhabitants to make way for sheep pastures at the height of the wool
