Origin: From Ath, a ford, and dare, from darach, the place of oaks, "The ford of the oaks." There is the following tradition of the origin of this surname: "Thomas, the sixth Earl of Desmond, while on a hunting excursion was benighted, and lost his way, between Tralee and Newcastle, in the county of Limerick, where he was received and hospitably entertained by one William McCormic, whose daughter he subsequently married. At this alliance, the family and clan took umbrage. Resigning his title and estate to his youngest brother, he fled to France in 1418, and died of grief at Rouen, two years afterward. The King of England attended his funeral. He had issue, Maurice and John; Robert, the son of Maurice, returning to Ireland, with the hope of regaining the estates and title of Thomas, his ancestor, slew Gerald, the White Knight, in single combat at Athdare, the ford of the oaks, whence he received the name of Adaire. He embarked for Scotland, where he married Arabella, daughter of John Campbell, Lord of Argyle."

Origin: The Tessada surname is Catalan in origin, according to most accounts. Specifically from Barcelona, where the name still exists. It is probably a distortion or the Catalan equivant of the surname Tejada, which is an occupational origin (someone who works with tiles). However, the family did immigrate to Italy, where they intermarried with Italian families. There were Tessadas in Finale Marina and Genoa as early as the late 1700s. Finale Marina had been under Spanish rule for a century (17th-early 18th). The Tessada family were merchant-bankers, as well as poets, artists, revolutionaries, and musicians. They intermarried with the Grillo, Curiel, Vierci, and Canessa families, to name a few. Postcards dating from the mid to late 19th century show that the Italian Tessadas were still very close with their Spanish cousins. Many Tessadas immigrated to Latin America in the 19th century after they won their independence from Spain. The Tessadas traditionally have a unflinching intolerance of totalitarian and dogmatic regimes.
