were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Callorde family name include Chadworth, Chatworth, Chaworth, Shadworth and others.

Migration of the Callorde family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland
