Tidwell Surname History
From informal reading over many years, it appears the surname Tidwell comes from high in the Pennine Mountain range in northern Midlands of England. There is a very old town there named Tidewill. Supposedly, the name derives from a Saxon chief named Tidi, dating to the 8th century or so. the word "well" in place names literally means water well. There are abundant, powerful, cold artesian wells in the Pennines. Local chiefs would claim one and the surrounding region as their territory. So it is loosely Tidi's Well. I've been to Tidewell, and it's a lovely old settlement.
