BADER Family History

This interesting and unusual name is of medieval Welsh origin, derived from the given name Adam Badder is the Anglicization of the diminutive form ("little", or "son of") ap Adda, the "ap" denoting the diminutive. This dialectal change would evolve in the English-Speaking community, especially over the border in counties, for example, Shropshire. The following examples illustrate the name development after the earliest recording (see below). Jevan ap Adda (1391, "The extent of Chirkland"), John Bathowe (1537) Hannah Bather (1683).
