OGDEN Family History

Recorded in several forms including Ogden, Ogsden, and the dialectal Hogsden, this is an English surname. It is locational and derives either from the places in West Yorkshire or in Lancashire called Ogden, or from now 'lost' medieval villages, of which the only reminder in the late 20th century is the surname itself. The placename means "the oak valley", and originates from the Old English pre 7th Century word "ac", meaning oak, with "denu", a valley. Locational names were given particularly to those former inhabitants of a place who left it to live or work in another area, and were thereafter known as, for instance, Richard de Okeden, recorded in the 1332 Lancashire Subsidy Rolls...
