ladday is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a person who worked as a servant or a page. This surname was originally derived from the Old English word Ladde, an English occupational name for a servant. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
[2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
Conversely, another source claims that name was derived differently as "in Old English and Scotch, a lade means a canal or duct for water. " [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
In this latter scenario, the name would have been again an occupational name for one who works or lives near a canal.

The Great Migration



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 ladday arrived in North America very early: Daniel Ladd, who settled in Salem in 1633; John Ladd, who settled in Virginia in 1653; Charles and Michael Laddy, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1867.
