Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of illness and the elements, were buried at sea. In North America, early immigrants bearing the family name Adde, or a spelling variation of the surname include: William Addy who was fined in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1635 for working on a Sunday; John Ade, his wife, two sons and two daughters, settled in America in 1709.
The Adde Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Adde Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
