Dadlow History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Dadlow family


The surname Dadlow was first found in Cambridgeshire at Tadlow, a civil parish and village in the union of Caxton and Arrington, hundred of Armingford. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
There are scant records of the name but the first on record was Roysia de Tadelowe who was listed in Cambridgeshire in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

[3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
At this time the surname was also spelt Tadloo. The first record of the place name dates back to c. 1080 when it was first listed as Tadeslaue which would point towards a Saxon heritage. Just eight years later, the place name was listed as Tadelai in the Domesday Book of 1086. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Dadlow are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Dadlow include: Tadlow, Tadlowe, Tadloe, Tadlo, Tedlow, Tedloe, Tedlo, Tadlowe, Dadlow and many more.

Migration of the Dadlow family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Dadlow or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
