Many people do not realize that the name Heddon changed remarkably over the centuries,however they were the same family linkages! Just like the Dialects /accents/and quite a few other reasons going back in time the Heddon history like many others who spread over different countries spelt the name a little different to where you see it here! But rather than place all the different kinds of spelling for now I prefer to start my Heddon ancestors from Square one. An ancestor of my Heddon family is portrayed on a plaque at St Paul’s wall in London.There is quite a differance of names there also! A mistake was made either by a sense of hearing the name sounding a little different, or a simple lettering being accidently written down thus shown! The name looks like [Seddon] and there is a definate line put through the name there as a mistake of spelling,or mistake of hearing? one example could have been that the person heard this was being sounded like [ it’s eddon] as in saying it fast sounds like Seddon.! However the amazing thing is that the crossing out of the name shows a’ line going through the name’ still yet remaining there from years ago. So here is some interesting past history to be left just as it was through the centuries mistakes and all! Another thing that perhaps makes sense is that one would spell the name as Headon of which I will be noting further along! Over my researches I have found many a different spelling outcome but all from the same lineage! Another spelling is seen as Heedan.- Heedin -Heedon- Heydon- etc’etc;…So never fear Heddon is hear! These spellings became noticeable from the accent of Devon United Kingdom. Also the Scottish pronunciation leans more to sounding of’ Heed’ rather than’ Hed’ Anyhow so far I have not seen any Scottish roots in my line, well not as yet anyhow! Like many families branch out for work or other reasons my first knowledge of my linkage did not move to far during the first half of my research, but they soon multiply here and there over the time! Following back to the ten hundreds is as far as I can see as yet! Again this will not be added here for quite sometime though, as I need to be obliging the near families who want to know their immediate connections now! During the next segment I shall be adding little by little over the time of my immediate family relations first. The names, dates etc; shall be placed on my other site here on [my ancestors blog] A little later!
