The surname Clode originates in South East Devon in England and is recorded in the early to mid 1500's. The villages of Upottery, Ottery St Mary, Sidbury and Northleigh had many Clode's in that period. The true origins of the surname are uncertain, it is possible that the name came over from Northern France with the Huguenot refugees although the fornames of individuals recorded in this early period do not substantiate this.
With time and improved transport links, Clodes migrated further afield in England and can be found in many countries worldwide.
