My WADEY Ancestry 

Early WADEY references

The earliest reference to a WADEY that I have come across was in the 14th century:

    1316   Hugh WADDY (Court Rolls of the Manor of Wakefield).

There are many 16th century references in the IGI.   Here are just a few:

    06/09/1547  The baptism of Richard WADYE at Sutton Courtenay, Berkshire.

    05/07/1549   The marriage, at Farnham in Surrey, of Robert WADDYE & Anne BAGYN.

    31/08/1558  The baptism, at Rotherham in Yorkshire, of Cissely WADDY, the daughter of Wyllam WADDY.
