Migration of the Chairdend family to the New World and Oceana


The 18th century saw the slow yet steady emigration of Irish families to British North America and the United States. Those early Irish settlers that left their homeland were typically moderately well off: they were enticed by the promise of a sizable plot of land. However, by the 1840s, this pattern of immigration was gone: immigrants to North America were seeking refuge from the starvation and disease that the Great Potato Famine of that decade brought. The great numbers of Irish that arrived to the United States and the soon to be Canada were instrumental in their quick development as powerful industrial nations. An examination of early immigration and passenger lists uncovered many early immigrants bearing the name Chairdend: Bernard Sheridan arrived in Philadelphia in 1807; Barney, Cornelius, Felix, Hugh, James, John, Martin, Mary, Mathew, Michael, Patrick, Peter, Terence, Thomas and William Sheridan, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1870..

The Chairdend 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: Cervus lacessitus Leo
Motto Translation: The stag at bay becomes a lion.
