The name arrived in three periods
1. 1630-1700 Nicholas Cady arrived early and his descendents all track to New England before 1776/ 90% of Cady;s from New England are related to Nicholis.
2, 1715-1754 Person;s being persecuted by the Church of England. Mostly Scottish Presbyterians
who Cromwell had moved to Ireland. They later called themselves Scotch-Irish to seperate themselves from 3. There were over 100,000 but onlu about 150 Cady;s mostly in the south.
3/ Irish Catholics the second largest group to come to America, over 2 million with several hundred with the surname all after 1840 (Largest: German) couple hundred surname Cady.

Althooough pronounced and spelled the same. The origin of the name is different

Suggestion: The Male line is often easier to follow. But, for you the Female line might be more important in the future, MtDNA or Mitochondrial DNA. Every mother passes this on to her Children. Brian Sykes wrote the Seven Daughters of Eve about European Eve's, Knowing which "Clan" you are tied to and when they arrived in America, can be interesting.
Obviously, Harry had some difficulty in life losing his parents and having a step-father who was himself a foster child, I'd bet his wife was critical to their children's success.
