The Anglo-Saxon name Chadreton comes from when the family resided in Chadderton, or Catterton which had two locations. The first in the parish of Oldham in the county of Lancashire, the second, a township in the parish of Healaugh in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The place-name is derived from the Latin word Cathedra, which means the place by the hill.

Chadreton Early Origins



The surname Chadreton was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times. In the 13th century, a Richard de Trafford gave lands of the name Chadderton to his son Geoffrey (circa 1235-1332,) who adopted the name of the estate, becoming Geoffrey de Chadderton. Possesion of the manor left the family when Margery, a daughter and heir of Chadderton Manor, married a John de Radcliffe in circa 1367. Today, Chatterton is a small village in the southern part of the Rossendale Valley.

The Great Migration



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 Chadreton or a variant listed above: N. Chadderton who arrived in San Francisco in 1850; John Chatterton with his brother David arrived in Philadelphia in 1828; Henry Chatterton arrived in New York in 1822.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Loyal a Mort
Motto Translation: Loyal unto death
