Migration of the Kaddebey 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.

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.

Cadby, who came to Virginia in 1638; Tho Cadby, who came to Virginia in 1638; and Stephen Cadby, who settled in Indiana sometime between 1840 and 1843..
