I was at the Muskegon Irish Music Festival and stopped at two different booths offering the origins of the name Cady. One booth said the name originated in Scotland in the 1300's under Thomas Cady (I believe) then the Cady name is found in Yorkshire England later between the 1300's and 1400's. Can anyone help me find the name's true origin???

The ragman rolls were created in Scotland in 12910 when Scottish lairds had to give their fealty to Edward Longshamks, the then King of England. It might be worth checking whether the name Cady is on those rolls. My ancestors (Crocket) were represented by the name 'crockitta'.
