An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Shadworthy come from when the family resided in London, where their name is derived from the place-name Chatworth, now lost. Before this, the name is derived from the Old English personal name Ceatta, with the suffix -worth, which means enclosure or farm. Combined, the name Chatworth meant "Ceatta's farm."

Shadworthy Early Origins



The surname Shadworthy was first found in London where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Shadworthy or a variant listed above: Thomas Chadworth who settled in Virginia in 1643; John Shadworth settled in New England in 1765.
