Cambridge Family HistoryThis famous locational surname was untypically originally recorded in its hometown of Cambridge in Cambridgeshire. It was the usual medieval practice to call a 'stranger' by the name of the place from whence they came, that is if they were not already so-called by virtue of their holding either the status of 'Lord of the Manor', or possibly a religious post. There are several surnames which derive from the two Cambridges, and these probably include Cammidge, Gammage, and Cammage reflecting dialect and slang.
