Hi Nancy, Well not having lookled at a map i think Bakewell is somewhere near Derby. I think. this is about 50 miles from where i live, but i contacted someone else on the genealogy forum, i will come back to you on that. But i have a frame on my wall, which is approx 18 inches by 12 , thats 406 x 200. and from top to bottom is covered in italics writing about the ancient history of the piddocks. Some points are: that piddockfrom time to time was also officially spelled, pidcock, pidocock. pitcock, pittock. the name is from the Saxons. They settled in Kent and eventually moved north. It is an English name , and it emerged influentially in Somerset, where they were seated as the lords of the manor of Piddock. Traditionaly the name descended from Paeda the first christian King of Mercia and settled in Somerset in the llth century."In north America, the first descendants of this surname, on a variable spelling of this name, was Thomas piddock who settled in Maine in 1623, William Piddock settled in Virginia in 1679. An ancient coat of arms found was: black and red a pied cock between three acorns. The crest was: a griffin holding a grenade.These are just a few quotes. there is far too much, i hope thats helps you with the name and your search .take care Margaret.
