Origins Available: English, German


The name Waide is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the given name Wade. Waide is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Many patronyms were formed when a son used his father's personal name as a surname, while others came from the personal names of famous religious and secular figures. In this case, the surname would have come from the personal name of the father, or another ancestor of the bearer. Another derivation of this surname comes from the Old English word (ge)węd, which means to wade, and would have been given to someone who lived near a ford. Members of the Waide family were in Durham, at Hilton Castle, since the early Middle Ages.

Migration of the Waide family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Edward Wade who settled in Conception Harbour in Newfoundland; Patrick Wade settled in Trinity in Newfoundland in 1792; Richard Wade settled in Massachusetts, with his wife and daughter in 1635.
