In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Caides to arrive on North American shores: James Caddy and Robert Caddy who were farming in Virginia in 1650 and William Caddy who settled in Barbados in 1634. Another James Caddy came from Wales to Boston in 1635.
