Gottlieb Schumacher, as part of surveying for the construction of the Jezreel Valley railway, noted in 1900 that Ludd was a “flourishing village”, consisting of 46 huts and 200 inhabitants, built up by the Bedouin of the Merj.
British Mandate era
In the 1922 census of Palestine conducted by the British Mandate authorities, the tribal area of Al Awadein had a population 402 Muslims, increasing in the 1931 census to 451 Muslim inhabitants, in a total of 87 houses.
In 1945 it had a population of 640 Muslims, and the total land area was 13,572 dunams. Of the land, 103 dunams were used for plantations and irrigable land, 13,063 for cereals, while 52 dunams were built-up (urban) areas.
1948 and aftermath
In 1992 the village site was described: "Piles of stones, scattered across the ground near several large eucalyptus and olive trees, are all that remain of the village. There is a newly-built structure over the village well."
