But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

Adem has been spelled many different ways, including Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence.

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 Adems to arrive on North American shores: A. Aden, aged 35, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1921; Ali Aden, aged 19, who arrived at Ellis Island from Genoa, in 1920; Altje Aden, aged 15, who arrived at Ellis Island from Ost. Grossefehn, in 1898.
