The name Caddy originated with the Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled Britain. It is derived from the Old English personal name Cada. With the addition of the diminutive suffix -man, this personal name was popular as late as the 13th century in the forms of Cadman and Cademan. Caddy was originally derived from a pet form of this name.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Caddy arrived in North America very early:
