Trove Tuesday: A Wardley One Name Study

I’ve been thinking about joining the Guild of One-Name Studies for a while now – specifically to do a study of the surname Wardley. Wardley is not currently registered with the Guild, unlike so many of my other surnames, so I thought it might be a good one to start with.

In preparing for this eventuality (I don’t want to register until I’m sure I can commit the resources to it), I have been collating family notices and other mentions I find through Trove. Today, I thought I would share some of the more interesting ones.
