Eade is a name that dates far back into the mists of early British history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes. It is derived from the son of Ede, as Edison, which was later shortened to Eadie. The surname Eade originally derived from the Old English word Eade which referred to abundant riches.However, another reference claims that the name was derived from the Middle English name Edwy and the Old English word Eadwig which are composed of the elements ead meaning prosperity and wig which meant war.
