Cardenton, Athy, Co Kildare

There appears to be no connection between Cardenton, Co Kildare, Ireland, a well known golf course and the site of the 2011 ploughing chapionships, and the Carden family. The very helpful Kildare librarian wrote: "The official name seems to be Cardington though I have only heard it referred to as Cardenton - seems that in this case it can be traced back at least to 14th century which pre-dates your branch of the family’s arrival in Ireland," which is a pity because I had hoped to learn something about their first home, which may have been in Co Kildare before they went to Tipperary.
