  1. Do you have a Happy Woddle in your family tree?!

    Genealogy can uncover all kinds of odd forenames and surnames.  Children named after battles, maternal surnames or even train stations  can make a change from the usual line of Johns, Marys and Williams.

    Whilst researching a family in Kent this week, one of our genealogists unearthed a gem of a name: Happy Woddle (or Waddle in some sources) was baptised at Hawkhurst in 1833, and married in Kent in 1857.  We wonder whose chose her interesting name!  She appears on the 1851 census, as below.
