Origin of the Name Fadden

The Fadden family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variant of Fadden include McFadden, McFadyen and McPadden. This is a baptismal name meaning 'son of Paidin', meaning Patrick. The name in Gaelic is MacPhaidin and the above variants and many more are the anglicized versions of the Gaelic. This clan were the first possessors of Lochbuie in Scotland and when expelled became a race of wandering artificers.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
The earliest record of the name was in 1304 when a Malcolm Macpaden appears as a charter witness at Achichendone in Kintyre and Conghan MacPaden petitioned for the archdeaconry of Argyll in the year 1390. The name in Ireland is from Donegal and they have been on record from 1660 when we find a Charles MacFadin was one of the commissioners for that County. Sir Arthur Fadden was one of Australia's most famous Prime Ministers. His father was born in County Galway , Ireland .
The Fadden coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Fadden descendants.
