Yardy One-Name Study


This page highlights some of the main areas which has so far featured in our research. The map below shows the main cluster of Yardys in The Fens. Each number represents the number of households in a locality in 1841. Most were family groups but a few are individual Yardys, typically as servants or lodgers in another household.

In addition to this main cluster, there are isolated Yardys elsewhere. Below we highlight the main locations where Yardys were found in the 19th and early 20th century as they dispersed. There are links to external websites (links open in a new window) that give more information. These include GENUKI entries (19th century gazetteers), Wikipedia (modern), a community website, and a map (from Streetmap). In due course we will add a complete list of places, both in the UK and abroad, generated from our database.

The Fens

Locations in the fenlands of Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. All are in Cambridgeshire unless stated otherwise.

Further Afield

As the Fenland clusters of Yardys dispersed during the latter part of the 19th century, they are found in other parts of England and abroad. Here are the main regions in the UK inot which Yardys migrated.
