An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Carwardine is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in Carden in Cheshire. The place-name was rendered as Kawrdin in the mid-13th century, and as Cawardyn in the mid-14th century.

Carwardine Early Origins



The surname Carwardine was first found in Hertfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Carwardine from very ancient times. They also held estates in Essex. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name is not only recorded in Herts, but later, in 1302, we find them in the county of Cheshire, where in general, the pronunciation and spelling became the simplified Cardin, as in Chumley from Chomondelly. Richard de Carwardine is recorded in Cheshire in 1302.

Carwardine Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Carwardine are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Carwardine include: Carwardine, Carwardyne, Cardin, Carden, Cardon and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Carwardine or a variant listed above:
