GUNDERSON Family History

This interesting surname translates as the son of "Gondri" or "Gundric", a once common old French personal name from the Germanic elements "gund", battle and "ric", poser. This personal name, introduced by the Normans to Britain, went through a few transformations to Gundred or Gundry in the 12th and 13th Centuries to Grundy in more recent times. The surname itself is a patronymic from this source, found originally in North Shields, Northumberland. The first recordings of the surname date from the early 17th Century (see below).
