Walne family in Halifax County, VA.
Hello, Sharon. My apologies for a late response. I have much information on Nicholas and Jane (Rudd) Walne, who immigrated from Lancashire, England to the Philadelphia area in 1682. They were followers of William Penn, who established the Society of Friends (Quakers) in the New World. My database includes info on about 14 generations of their descendants. I do not know of other Waun/Walne/Waln immigrants to North America, although some may have occurred.
Also, I have some info on the English ancestry of Nicholas and Jane Walne.
I would like to know more on the origin of the name Walne. I have a little info from Lancashire, and am somewaht familiar with speculation that the Walne name originated in Wales, where I have found a town named "Waun". Same sound as my name (the 'l' is silent).
My e-mail address is
I would be happy to share any and all of my info.
Kind regards,
Geoffrey Walne
