i am serching for any firther information about the Vardy's in my family tree. The gossip among the family was the Vardy is a corruption of the spanish word "verdi" and that the family were originally immigrants - I can find no trace of this.

The people I am researching are;

Joseph Vardy (born 26.03.1872 Annesley Derby)
His parents were: Ferdinand Vardy (christened 23.06.1844 Normanton Derbys)
and Priscilla Burroughs (born 1849)
Ferdinand's parents were ( I think)
Charles Vardy and Lavinia or Seveina.

Any help or further information re these people would be greatly appreciated - please contact me via Email at

My father's (George Vardy) family was from Derby. We immigrated to the US in 1967. His family is now in Stoke-on-Trent. Quite a few Vardys there. His father was Fred but that's about all I know. I'm thinking of doing some research but it'd be difficult because I'm here in the US and the records are in England.

Helen, It is *very* likely that we are related as the Vardy's are mostly based round Derby and George is a "family" name. I know have a family tree going back to @ 1700, and if you can get your tree back to say 1880, I can definitely try to match you in. Email me at if you want anymore info etc
