The name Cadman has been recorded in British history since the time when the Anglo-Saxons ruled over the region. The name is assumed to have been given to someone who was a servant of someone named Cade, or a person who packed herring into barrels or made the barrels themselves. The surname may also be derived from the Old English personal name Cędmon, which was the name of a poet who died around 680 AD. According to the Venerable Bede, Cędmon was an illiterate herdsman who received divine inspiration in a dream to enter a monastery and write religious poetry. He is principally known for the work entitled "Cędmon's Hymn."

Cadman Early Origins



The surname Cadman was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066. Caedmon who lived in the 7th century was the first English Christian poet, his poetry was based on the Scriptures.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.
