I come from the South East of England just south of London. I'm the son of Douglas Chidley who is the son of Arthur Chidley who has now passed away. I have a sister called Lucy Chidley and a nan called Ethel Chidley. That's about the extent of my family, but i want to know how far back the chidley clan goes back, and ultimately which of the first chidleys i'm connected to. It's nice to see chidleys on the net because i was beginning to think that we were a dying bread.
