Eddisone History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Eddisone family

Migration of the Eddisone family to the New World and Oceana


Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Eddisone family name Eddisone, or who bore a variation of the surname were Matthew Addison, who settled in St. Christopher in 1635; Thomas Addison settled in Virginia in 1623; William Addison, settled in Barbados in 1654.
