Although there are only a few Ritherdons left in England, and rather more in Australia, listed here are the names of many of the families they married into over the last four hundred years or so. The earliest records place the family in Devon and Somerset from where, at about the end of the sixteenth century, significant numbers migrated to the City of London and surrounding counties. In the nineteenth century two cousins served with the East India Company and had families in India. Later two of the grandchildren of one of them emigrated to Australia, via Canada, and founded the Ritherdon family there.
