Ryder Genealogy & History

Ryder is an English surname, with both occupational and locational origins. The first comes from the Old English ridere, meaning to ride, and was originally used as an occupational surname for cavalry and messengers, though the former meaning was usurped by the French Knight. The second is from the Old English ried or ryd, meaning a clearing in a wood, and -er serving as an agent suffix, as in someone living there. Ryder family history starts in 1204, when Thomas le Rider was noted as a witness in the Assize Court Rolls of Yorkshire. Ryder genealogy includes Ryder System founder James Ryder and actress Winona Ryder.
