Chaid is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in or near either of the settlements called Cheadle in the counties of Cheshire and Staffordshire. Chaid belongs to the class of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Chaid Early Origins



The surname Chaid was first found in Cheshire 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.

Chaid 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 Chaid family name include Cheadle, Chedel, Cheade, Cheatle, Cheddle, Cheatley, Chedle, Chettle and many more.

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 Chaid surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Margaret and William Cheadle settled in Virginia in 1663; Ann Cheade also settled in Virginia in that year, probably the daughter.
