Re: WADLOW-- VA ca. 1800 to MO 1830's
I hope this helps.I am first generation American.My father, Leo Charles Wadlow, came from Blackpool, England.His mum came from Shropshire England.The Shropshire Wadlow's have roots that date back to the Doomsday book of 1066 AD.Some Wadlow's originally came from France and were called DuWadlow.The DuWadlow's came over with Charlemagne and were the Hugonauts(Protestants). I, like many of us, am related to the Tallest man Robert Wadlow.He is my fifth cousin once removed. I believe.The Wadlow family was given an Estate in Shropshire by the King of England for being so loyal to the crown.There is a Wadlow family living at the mansion, but since my blood line is a more direct decendant from the original Wadlow's I will get the choice to own the mansion and run the farm. The farm has over 500 acres on the English/Welsh border.Although I have no plans to live there it is cool ancestry stuff that I thought you would find interesting. The farm and mansion have been in the Wadlow family for 400 years and is where my Grandfather, Charles, was born in 1888.
