CODD Family HistoryThis 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"...
