Families covered: Carden of Barnane, Carden of Fishmoyne, Carden of Templemore

BP1934 starts its article on this family with the following: "The name of Carden is local, being derived from the township of Cawarden, Cararden, or Carden, which lies about eleven miles S.S.E. from Chester. The elder branch of the family terminated in co-heiresses, the manor of Over-Carden was carried by marriage into the family of Felton. A branch had been settled in Kent, where it appears it was for several generations possessed of the manor of Hodiford; but that estate was alienated temp. Elizabeth, by John Carden, to the Cobbes, when there is reason to believe that the Cardens of Kent removed into Lincolnshire, and that from them diverged the Irish branch." BP1934 starts with the following John "who settled at Templemore, co. Tipperary, about the year 1650".
