Waddington Family Genealogy Forum
When researching the Waddingtons of Yorkshire, I looked up the meaning of the name, and the Dictionary said " Local, 'of Waddington', a village and parish near Clitheroe, Yorkshire. It is natural to find the name crossing the border into Lancashire. This surname has ramified very strongly in the Northern Counties."
By the way, if you know anything about a Mary Waddington, born 1725 in Thornhill, Yorkshire and married a Charles Craven in 1747. I would be grateful.
