Early Origins of the Adeyn family
The surname Adeyn was first found in Dorset
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

Migration of the Adeyn family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Adeyn or a variant listed above: 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.
