Over the centuries the name De Goudron may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname De Goudron came originally from GOODROW, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus. The Last Name of GOODROW was of two-fold origin. It was a baptismal name ‘the son of Godrich’ which was composed of the elements GODRIC (good) and RIC (power).
