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.
