Word Origin for lade
"loaded, weighted down," 1590s, from the original past participle of lade.
Old English hladan (past tense hlod, past participle gehladen) "to load, heap" (the general Germanic sense), also "to draw water" (a meaning peculiar to English), from Proto-Germanic *khlad- (cf. Old Norse hlaða, Old Saxon hladan, Middle Dutch and Dutch laden, Old Frisian hlada "to load," Old High German hladen, German laden), from PIE *kla- "to spread out flat" (cf. Lithuanian kloti "to spread," Old Church Slavonic klado "to set, place").
