Hydes Edward 1762 of Wartnaby Will

Edward Hydes of Wartnaby 1762 Will and Inventory

Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland Archives, Leicestershire Wills and Probate Records 1762

The opening of this will is confusing in that it gives the impression that Edward’s surname was Wartnaby and that he came from the parish of Roadly.  In fact Edward Hydes senior was buried in Wartnaby on 11 December 1761.  Wartnaby is a chapelry in the parish of Rothley and Roadly was a phonetic spelling reflecting the earlier name of Rodolei.
