Deadmanstone, Almondbury

Also known as Dudmanston, Dudmanstone, and Dead Man Stone, this was an early settlement in the Berry Brow area.

Place-Names of South-West Yorkshire (1913) by Armitage Goodall:

DUDMANSTONE, Almondbury, RE 1634 Dudmanston, RE 1716 Dudmanstone, is "Dudeman's farm," from OE tūn, an enclosure or farm, and the personal name recorded by Searle. Popular etymology has been busy with this name, and is responsible for RE 1780 Deadman Stone, which is doubly inaccurate.

The corruption of "Dudman" to "Deadman" can also be found at Dead Man's Hole in Upperthong.
