Dady History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The rich and ancient history of the Dady family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from the baptismal name Dade. This Old English personal name was originally derived from the Old English word daed, when translated means a deed or an exploit. Baptismal names began to appear as surnames relatively late in the growth of the naming tradition. This is a little surprising, given the popularity of biblical figures in the Christian countries of Europe. Nevertheless, surnames derived from baptismal names grew in popularity during the Middle Ages, and have become one of the foremost sources for surnames.

Early Origins of the Dady family


The surname Dady was first found in Norfolk 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.

Migration of the Dady family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England.
