Cudling has been recorded under many different variations, including Codling, Cudelyne, Codlyng, Kodling, Codelyng and many more.

Migration of the Cudling family
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 Cudling or a variant listed above: George Codling who arrived in New York in 1847.
