    Vardey, Allott,

    I am trying to help a friend with her family history and have got stuck. Her father Thomas Ernest Allot Vardey (born 13 Nov 1912 Rotherham, Yorkshire West Riding, died Aug 2000 Rotherham)- the only information I can find is from his death cannot find his birth. He was a butcher.

    He married twice. 1st time before 2nd world war Sheffield? to Freda. They had 2 children Robert James 1941? and Susan Elizabeth 1944? both born Frenchville, Sheffield.

    He then married Hazel Joan Brookes 4th June 1958 Sheffield

    Thomas's father was called Herbert Vardey. He died around 1969 Hull, aged about 87. He married Cath Allott a nurse. She was born before 1901 and died c 1965 in her early 80's.

    My friend thinks that Herbert's father was Welsh from Colwyn Bay?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

            Bless you Elaine, I had really hit a brick wall with this.


              I got intrigued by the surname, and have tracked them back to 1841 - though I can't see the ones I wanted in 1851.

              One of the marriages appears on YorksBMD.
