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,
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.
