    English and Scottish: occupational name for someone who looked after a stud of horses, from Middle English and Older Scots stod(e), stud(e) ‘establishment where horses were bred’, ‘herd of stallions or mares’ + herd(e) ‘herdsman’.

    English: variant of Stothard, an occupational name for a keeper of cattle or horses, from Middle English stot ‘steer, bullock’ or ‘horse’ + herd(e) ‘herdsman’. The name was probably confused with Stodeherd ‘keeper of stud-horses’ (see above).

    History: The Stoddard family of Boston, MA, was introduced by Anthony Stoddard (1600–1686), who settled there in 1639. Solomon Stoddard (1643–1728/9) was a prominent Congregational clergyman in MA, the grandfather of Jonathan Edwards, and progenitor of many noted descendants.
