My wife,Joan and I are starting to research her ancestry, her mother was a WARDELL.
We have established Joans Grandfather as John Thomas WARDELL married to May CHAPMAN and died in Shildon, his father was Thomas WARDELL born 1853 Kirkbymoorside and living at Penny Holme in 1881 with his wife Christiana ? and Daughters Mary and Kezia born 1874 Farndale and 1878 Rosedale respectively. We know there were other siblings but exactly how many we have yet to discover.
Has anyone reading this done any research on this branch of the WARDELL tree and is willing to share any information they may have.
