Hi

I have a book called "Lye & Wollescote - The Photographic collection by Pat Dunn.  It mentions a William Pardoe lived at 175 High St. William and his son were both photographers. It also mentions an A Pardoe who was in the Lye Unitarians Football Club - 1920-1.  A Sam Pardoe in the Lye Cricket Club, 2nd Eleven, 1924. The Coronation Cttee on 1911 had a Major Pardoe. Major Pardoe  was born in 1860 in Skeldings Lane and attended Lye Church School. In June 1882 was head of Crabbe St School and retired in 1925.  Died in 1950 (there is a photo of him in the book). There is also a photo of Bill Pardoe the photographer who was born on 18 September 1904. Died in Scotland in 1991. Hope this helps.

After having another look at my book, I have come across the following:

? Freeman was in the Lye Football Club 1911/12 (there is a photo of the team)
A photo of a Gary Newey making a small metal casting at Woolridge's, 1970.
A Jepthah Freeman was in the Wollescote Albion Football team 1909 as was an Elijah Freeman (there is a photo of the team)
A wedding photo of Colin Pardoe (father was Major Pardoe) who married Madge Round on 17 April 1939 at Pedmore Church.

The author Pat Dunn launched the Lye and Woollescote History Society. If any of the names I have given you are members of your family it may well be worth buying the book.

Hi CA

Sorry I haven't a lot of info' on the Gauden side, it seems that Betsy and James had two sons Thomas born 1861 and James Robert 1866, So maybe James's dad was a Thomas  :-\

Just found more info' James dad was Thomas and mum was Mary Chance

I have Jemima Pardoe 1788 Married Joseph Yardley, Mary Pardoe 1768 Married John Yardley and Mary Ann Pardoe 1858 who Married William H. Yardley.  I think the name Pardoe was very common in Lye, bit like Smith!

G'day all in these postings. I have all these names and more in my Family Tree and would be more than willing to share info. I am connected via the many Chance families in the Lye, Oldswinford and Birmingham towns of Worcestershire.

It may be best if we could probably ask specific questions or, if you see me on line at any time, maybe we could go to a room to discuss same.

best of luck with your research

Leigh
Chance, Cartwright, Gauden from Worcestershire, Mason of Rowley Regis, Kestle from Cornwall and Smartt from Middlesex. Okay, so many inter family marriage, any one living in Worcestershire just about
