English (Middlesex): nickname from an unrecorded Middle English burre-dokke ‘burdock’, the name of a prickly plant with burrs and dock-like leaves (usually Arctium lappa), common on waste ground. It may have been given to someone of a prickly temperament or perhaps to someone with a hoarse voice.
Possibly also an Americanized form of Dutch Boerdijk: habitational name from a settlement named Boerdijk, composed of boer ‘peasant, farmer, countryman’ and dijk ‘dike’.
History: Robert Burdick was a freeman of Newport, RI, in 1655.
