My name is John Dudney and I am one of the Dudney's from England. The earliest records that I traced back are 1600.
The Dudney name and it's deritives Dudeney, Dewdney etc seem to come from the counties of Sussex and Surrey, as well as Devon in the West Country. From other information gathered from the web it appears to be a French Huguenot name orginally from the French name DIEUDONNE meaning god given.
The Dudney's also owned Southdown Brewery in a place called Portslade which is near Brigton in Sussex. If you go to http://www.stnicolas.standrewportslade.btinternet.co.uk/page20.html you will see a photograph of the Brewery and my namesake John Dudney's house.
Hope this is of some help.
