Cadderton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the Cadderton name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in Chadderton, or Catterton which had two locations. The first in the parish of Oldham in the county of Lancashire, the second, a township in the parish of Healaugh in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The place-name is derived from the Latin word Cathedra, which means the place by the hill.

Early Origins of the Cadderton family


The surname Cadderton was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times. In the 13th century, a Richard de Trafford gave lands of the name Chadderton to his son Geoffrey (circa 1235-1332,) who adopted the name of the estate, becoming Geoffrey de Chadderton. Possesion of the manor left the family when Margery, a daughter and heir of Chadderton Manor, married a John de Radcliffe in circa 1367. Today, Chatterton is a small village in the southern part of the Rossendale Valley.

Migration of the Cadderton family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Cadderton family emigrate to North America: N. Chadderton who arrived in San Francisco in 1850; John Chatterton with his brother David arrived in Philadelphia in 1828; Henry Chatterton arrived in New York in 1822.

The Cadderton Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Loyal a Mort
Motto Translation: Loyal unto death
