The present generation of the Caddwork family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in London, where their name is derived from the place-name Chatworth, now lost. Before this, the name is derived from the Old English personal name Ceatta, with the suffix -worth, which means enclosure or farm. Combined, the name Chatworth meant "Ceatta's farm."

Early Origins of the Caddwork family


The surname Caddwork was first found in London where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The recorded variations of Caddwork include Chadworth, Chatworth, Chaworth, Shadworth and others.

Migration of the Caddwork family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Caddwork were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Thomas Chadworth who settled in Virginia in 1643; John Shadworth settled in New England in 1765.
