The village lies north of the A16 trunk road and south of the A52.
The name Quadring is from the Old English cwead+haefer+ingas, or "Muddy settlement of Haefer". It might be hard to understand how that converted over time until you see that in the 1086 Domesday book, the village is given as Quadhaveringe. A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991.
The locals often pronounce the name as "Quaardrin". And "Quaardrin Iddicks" would be Quadring Eaudyke. [Jeff Ashberry]
[Dave Wilson], in Anglesey, Wales, provides that his father would call it "Quadring Edick".
John Bland tells us (2004) that the locals pronounce the name as "Kway-dring O-doik".
