Audam Early Origins



The surname Audam 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.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Audam were among those contributors: 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.
