The name Kiddle has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in a parish named Kiddal near Leeds. Other references beleive the name to be an occupational name for one who was a fisher of rivers, but our research proves that this is a less likely origin.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Kiddle, or a variant listed above:
