Origin of last name

SIDWELL : English (Warwickshire):: 1: metronymic from a Middle English female personal name Sidewell an altered form of Sidefulle. It was the name of an Anglo-Saxon saint associated with the parish of Saint Sidwells in Exeter (Devon) and whose cult in Wilts is evidenced in a minor placename Sidefollewelle (1377–99). Her name is a Christian coinage meaning ‘the virtuous one’ from Old English sidu ‘morality’ + full ‘full’.2: variant of Sitwell a rare Derbyshire name probably a nickname from a Middle English phrase meaning ‘sit well’.3: possibly a habitational name of Norman origin from Cideville in Seine-Maritime or Sideville in Manche with Middle English Anglicization of -ville to -well but absence of early spellings with -ville or with a preposition render this explanation particularly uncertain.
