Migration of the Kaddeby family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Kaddeby arrived in North America very early: Thos. 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..
