I’d like to announce the completion and sale of my book, entitled:


Uncovering the True Origins of the Caudill Name & Family

Includes a Caudill Family Tree & Additional Material on Caudill Place-names & Spelling Variations

By Lochlainn Seabrook

Book description: A comprehensive new examination of the origins of the Caudill family and name (also includes dozens of similar surnames that are either related to, or have been confused with, Caudill over the past 1,000 years). Overturns a number of erroneous “traditions” regarding the emergence and development of the Caudill surname. Contains an 88-page, 11-generation Caudill Family Tree (mainly of the Scottish, North Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky lines and their descendants); a discussion and list of all known spelling variations; a list of Caudill researchers; information on and maps to Cawdor Castle, Scotland; the Caudill Coat of Arms and Motto; useful Caudill-related web sites; various Caudill resources and items of interest; 19th-Century illustrations; detailed footnotes; exhaustive index; complete bibliography; and more. Most of my material on the Caudills is completely new and original, and has never been made available to the public before.

Categories: non-fiction, etymology, ethnology, history, genealogy.

Spiral bound
155 pages

Written not only for Caudill family members and relations, as well as Caudill genealogists and researchers, but also for both the casual reader and serious scholar.
(*Please note: this is not a genealogical history of the Caudill family, but rather an in-depth study of the origins and meaning of the Caudill name, along with a discussion on the original nationality of the Caudills.)
