The name Chedel comes from when the family lived in or near either of the settlements called Cheadle in the counties of Cheshire and Staffordshire. Chedel belongs to the class of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Chedel arrived in North America very early: Margaret and William Cheadle settled in Virginia in 1663; Ann Cheade also settled in Virginia in that year, probably the daughter.
