Hi,and a Happy New Year to all the Peberdys out there. My research into the Peberdy name is through my paternal grandmother, who was Lucy Peberdy b:1876 in Hathern, Leicestershire. There were many Peberdys in the village of Hathern during the 1800s, and my line relates to a blacksmith, John b:1817 and his wife Mary (Garton) b:1817. John was born in Sutton Bonnington, Notts. and Mary from Normanton-on-soar, Notts. I don't know how many children they had in total, but these I know for sure : Samuel b:1840 ,Matilda b:1842, Mary b:1843, John b:1844, William b:1846 (my ggrandfather), Deborah b:1848, Twins Henry and Charles b:1849, Oliver b:1857. Anyone interested contact me.
