Cardey Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Cardey family name include Cart, Carte, Carta and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Cardey surname or a spelling variation of the name include: William Cart, who settled in Virginia in 1654; as did Mary Cart in 1741; J.J. Carte, who came to New England in 1793 with his wife and two sons, and James Carte, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1848..
