Hi everyone.

Just been reading through peoples surname interests, and wondered if any of you have come across the given FIRST name of Squire, or Esquire in your families.

It seems to have been connected to quite a few families in the Lye area and I'd be interested to know where it came from? The surname Squires? Names it seems to tie in with are GAUDEN, TAYLOR, HART, HILL, BINGHAM, FARLEY, CHANCE/CHAND, BAKER, BRADLEY, DICKENS, KNOWLES, TORDOFF
Staffordshire - Kendrick, Higgs, Ralph, Mears, Egginton, Simkiss, Beebee, Hartshorn, Pitt, Howard, Law, Hilton, Humphreyson,
Worcestershire - Kendrick, Onions, Timmins, Harvey, Stephens, Hill
Shropshire - Williams, Wilcox, Moreton, Poole, Gennoe, Stedman, Astley, Morris, Roe
Carmarthenshire - Naylor
Montgomeryshire - Williams, Wilcox
Middlesex - Silver, Martin
Suffolk - Chenery
Somerset - Owen, Chorley, Rugg
Lancashire - Evans, Silver

I have just started looking into my family history and have discovered a John Pardoe who was born in Lye.  He was married to a Jane Lye although it would seem he left the area to move to Yorkshire (a place called Ledsham) where he lived with  my great great grandmother.  They went on to have several children.  We get the impression from family stories that this was a huge scandal and not discussed.  John Pardoe's father was Richard Pardoe and we believe they must have been a fairly wealthy family - they certainly had servants and a horse and carriage. Can anyone help me further.  THis is my first posting on this site so I hope I have done this message correctly.
thanks, Vanessa

oops - just spotted my first mistake - John Pardoe was married to Jane Pardoe (not Jane Lye) but they came from Lye near Worcester.

What birth date do you have for John vcsanderson?  I have John Pardoe born about 1853 son of George Pardoe and Elizabeth Brooks.  1851 they were in Dudley Road Lye.  I don't have a Marriage for this John?  Are you sure that your John Married a Jane Pardoe, or is that just a submitted entry from the IGI?  Best Wishes from linell.

this is what we know :
John H Pardoe born in Lye in 1840
father's name we think was Richard Pardoe.
died in either 1901 or 1902 at 10 Top Row, Ledsham Newton, parish of Leeds

Hi Vanessa, think this is them, they look a well off family, Richard was a Butcher.

1851 Census Turnpike Road Lye (that would be the main High Street which is now the Stourbridge Road, runs from Halesowen to Stourbridge.

Richard Pardoe Butcher 49 All family born Lye
Mariah Wife 46 Butchers Wife
Mary D 21 School Mistress
Sarah D 18 Infant School Teacher
Eliza D 16 Assists with Housework
Jane D 13
John Henry Son 11
Henry Joseph Son 7
Charles Richard Son 3

Next door is
Thomas Pardoe 51 U Nail Maker
John Pardoe Brother 65 Proprietor of Houses
They could be relalted to Richard?

Best Wishes from linell.

thank you so much for this information - my mum will be able to confirm but if it is them then we have solved a family mystery that has gone on for years.  Are you related to this family tree? thanks Vanessa
