Re: Carradus family Borrowdale England

I saw your 'no frills' message and wondered whether your CARRADUS-surnamed folk could have had other versions of that name , over time .
For example my CARDUS surname quest has led me to such variation as CARADUS , CARADICE , CARRADICE .
My folk of interest seemingly were mostly born in the Lancashire area, whereas my search to locate Borrowdale has resulted in :
"Borrowdale is a valley and civil parish in the English Lake District in the Borough of Allerdale in Cumbria, England.
Borrowdale lies within the historic county boundaries of Cumberland, and is sometimes referred to as Cumberland Borrowdale in order to distinguish it from another Borrowdale in the historic county of Westmorland."
I have to conclude that there is probably no connection between my CARADUS folk and your CARRADUS family.
Nevertheless I shall keep your quest in mind.
