English (Staffordshire): of Norman origin, a variant of Scudamore, which most probably arises from a Norman French nickname for a knight who used a particular type of leather shield, from the unrecorded Norman French phrase, escu de more ‘Moor's shield’, a reference to a type of Moorish leather shield called an adarga, which was in widespread use not only in medieval Iberia and north Africa but also in Brittany.
History: The manor of Upton Scudamore in Wiltshire was held by Peter de Skydemore in 1216. The same manor was held by Godfrey Escudamore shortly after 1150. The Scudamore family claim descent from Ralph, recorded in Domesday Book (1086) as holder of Opeton (Upton), whose son was known as Reginald Escudemor.
