To follow up on your origination of the surname Waudby, i have been told by a geneologist that it originates from the surname Wauldby, 'Wauld' is the Old English spelling of Wold (the hilly region which stretches for the West of Hull round to Flemborough Head)and 'by'is from the Old English for a settlement or village. Insidently there is still a placename on the map just west of Hull called Wauldby, all that remains there is a Manor house and Church.
