|Origin of Adham, Meaning of Adham
Origin: STEADHAM is one of the many spelling variations of the surname STIDDEM. Timen STIDDEM (later anglicized to Timothy STIDHAM) was an immigrant from Sweden in the 17th century to New Sweden, now Wilmington, Delaware. All of Timen's children and grandchildren spelled their surname as STEDHAM. By the 4th generation, most of Timen's descendants began spelling their surname as STIDHAM, the same spelling that Timen had used to sign his surname in his will. The exception to this was the descendants of Timen's son Benedictus STEDHAM. His descendants had moved south and west and today are congregated mainly in the states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas. The letter 'A' in the first syllable 'STEAD' began to appear in documents relating to STEADHAMS during the mid 1800s.
