I am researching and writing a comprehensive History of the Waddell family from their earliest roots in Wedale c.1175AD (and even before i.e. pre Norman Conquest) until the present day. The bulk of the work will be on Scottish branches as this is where English, Irish, American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, South American and South African branches originated but I have gathered much information on these branches too from many generous correspondents throughout the world. There is a lot of mis- information disseminated about us that needs to be rectified. We are an important Lowland Scottish family with a fascinating, but as yet unwritten, history a task therefore now well over due.
This work may need to be financed by subsciption as Family histories were in the past. I am open to suggestions and of course would welcome any contributions refering to particular families and branches. Gavin Main Waddell
