About the study

My Cude one-name study is still in its very early stages having only been started in 2014 with Guild registration in 2015. The name comes from my wife's family: its rarity intrigued me and as I researched her Cude ancestors I was sucked in. I will add more as my research develops.

Variant names

To date, the only variant I have encountered is the phonetically similar Cood.

Name origin

My early research suggests the name hails from the West Country of England, principally Devon and Somerset. I have found distint pockets in both counties but, as yet, I have not discovered the bridge that links the two clusters.
