Welcome to the Treadway Web. The intent of this Website is to
try and pull all the Treadway/Treadaway/Tredway/Tredaway families together into their
It is said that the name of "Treadway" derived from the Cornish name "Thretheway" meaning "David's Settlement". The Tredway surname and its variations in England were wide spread; Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire, London, Middlesex, Northamptonshire, Rutlandshire, and Sussex to name a few. Here in the States there were Four distinct Treadway/Treadaway/Tredway families in the 1600's and early 1700's living on the Eastern Coast which most of us have descended. There was Henry Treadway of Gloucester Co., New Jersey, Nathaniel Treadway of Watertown, and Sudbury, Massachusetts, Richard Treadway of Baltimore Co., Maryland and Thomas Tredway of Baltimore and Harford Co's, Maryland
This Website has been a dream of mine for some time now. I wanted to make a free place for all the Treadway/Tredway/Tredaway/Trethewey and other surname variations to unite across the globe, sharing our valuable Heritage with each other. Besides the Lineage sites of the above, there are sites for Bible Records, Burial Information, Census Records, Estate Records, Deeds, Obituaries, Pension Records, an Honorary Hall for members of the lines, who fought in or died in wars, a Bulletin Board for posted queries, a Reunion site, and a Debate Corner to voice your opinion, debate, or to theorize on a lineage.
This site would be a shell if it weren't for all of you donating information. Unfortunately, when I was newer to genealogy I didn't back my things up. I had 2 computer crashes back then and lost most of who donated their wonderful information. I make it a priority now to back things up and give credit where credit is do as so as I can. I hope you enjoy this site and use it to its fullest. Thank you everyone.
I would love to thank The Genealogy Pod at Tripod, and Vicki Lynn the Pod Coordinator, for bestowing this wonderful award to The Treadway Web. I am so
honored. Thank you so very much. I would also like to thank Tripod for providing us this
space to place our information
