The name Carde finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a blacksmith or tin-worker. The surname is derived from the Old French word carde, which means a teasel-head or wool-comb, which both relate to the materials a blacksmith and tin-worker used or made.

Early Origins of the Carde family


The surname Carde was first found in Cornwall 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.

Migration of the Carde family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Carde or a variant listed above:
