Chadd is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the Old English personal name Ceadd, also rendered as Ceadda. Unlike most Old English personal names, this name remained in use for a substantial length of time after the Norman Conquest. The popularity of the name was perhaps aided by the exploits of St. Chad, who was the third Bishop of Litchfield in the 7th century.

Chadd Early Origins



The surname Chadd was first found in Norfolk 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.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Chadd, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were :
