Kadmynd History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The founding heritage of the Kadmynd family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Kadmynd comes from when one of the family worked as a servant of someone named Cade, or a person who packed herring into barrels or made the barrels themselves. 
The surname may also be derived from Saint Cædmon, which was the name of a poet who died around 680 AD. 
According to the Venerable Bede, Cædmon was an illiterate herdsman who received divine inspiration in a dream to enter a monastery and write religious poetry. He is principally known for the work entitled "Cædmon's Hymn." 
Thomas de Chabham or Chobham (fl. 1230), was an early English theologian and is mentioned as sub-dean of Salisbury in 1214 and 1230. 
Early Origins of the Kadmynd family
The surname Kadmynd was first found in Yorkshire where the name "is a North English name. The temptation to make it occupative is great. A 'cade of herynge' is as old as the Promptorium Parvulorum, and the cademan would seem naturally to be one who packed herring in cades, or barrels, or perhaps the cooper who made them. But the name is always found without prefix." 
The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 included: A. Robert Cademan.; J. Thomas Cademain; Robertus Cadman; and Ricardus Caddeman.

Migration of the Kadmynd family
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Kadmynds to arrive in North America: Joe Cadman and his wife Hannah who settled in Georgia in 1733; Warner Cadman arrived in New England in 1764; Jonas Cadiman arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1743.
