MERIDA Family HistoryThis is a Spanish surname of great antiquity. Formerly recorded as "de Merida", the use of the French preposition implying estate ownership, the surname originates from a place called Merida, of which there are believed to be a numberr of examples in the country, although the first recording that we have been able to find suggests that this place is or was, in the city-state of Valladolid. The name probably means "to the south," and it is understood that in medieval times and earlier, a merida was a settlement or hamlet to the south of a main town or village, the word in turn developing into the name of the settlement.
