The ancient history of the Shaddock name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided at Chaddock, a hamlet in the parish in Lancashire. It is from the place-name that the surname is derived.

Shaddock Early Origins



The surname Shaddock was first found in Lancashire at Chaddock, an estate in the township of Tyldesley, in the parish of Leigh. "Chaddock Hall was in possession of a family of that name in the early part of the last century [(18th century)]" [1]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)
Listings of the family in various rolls include: Daniel Chaddocke who was listed in the Preston Guild Rolls in 1682; Ann Chaddock, of West Leigh, 1607 and Peter Chaddock, of Prescot, 1613; both listed in the Wills at Chester. The same rolls also listed John Cheydock, of Cheydock. The Lancashire Inquisitions listed John Chadocke, of Chadocke, Lancashire, 1610. [1]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)
And many years later, Thomas Chadeck was listed in Yorkshire in 1704. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)

One source claims there may be a relationship with the Chadwick surname as seen by the following entry: John Chadwikke alias Chaddokke who was listed in Nottinghamshire in 1554. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)
Yet another source disagrees: "Not to be confounded with Chadwick, as is done in the Index to the Preston Guild Rolls." [1]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)

To add to the confusion, Chadwick is a surname frequented to Lancashire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire name. Chadwick is "a hamlet and manor, in the parish and union of Bromsgrove, Upper division of the hundred of Halfshire, Droitwich and E. divisions of the county of Worcester." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Shaddock Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Shaddock include Chadock, Chaddock, Chaddoch, Chadoch, Chaddocke and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Shaddock or a variant listed above:
