As some of you may recall I've mentioned research previously and my great great grandfather having been landlord of The Turks Head in Silver Street. Thought you might like to see this snippet I found from the 'Coventry Standard' dated December 20th 1862. They were very drunk as was indeed Yardley. 150 years on or so and not much changes!! Cheers Cheers Big grin Big grin Thumbs up

On 11th Sep 2016 11:06am, Annewiggy said: Came across this paper, as usual looking for something else! It was written by Northamptonshire Archaeology about Belgrade Plaza 2005-2007 (pity they spelt it as BELGRAGE). It is a bit long winded but the maps are interesting. Also the names of early Coventry families who lived in the area. Neil may be interested as there is mention of Yardleys living in the area from 14th to 16th century. It would be great if I could link to these as it would take my family back in Coventry another 200 years! A lot more research to do. Archaeology at Belgrade Plaza 2005-2007
Wow yes great find Anne Big grin Alot of reading but very interesting to see of more 'Yardleys'!! We get everywhere!! Not heard of 'de Yardley' though but as mentioned before we are a very long standing family name within Coventry. I'm back to about 1780 and my lads are at least 7th generation Coventrians (although they started life in Berkswell but I'll keep that quiet!)

Neil - I don't know if this is one of your Yardleys? Wave Coventry Standard - Friday 24 November 1848 COVENTRY POLICE OFFICE. Wednesday. Before R. K. Rotherham and R. Caldicott, Esqrs. Edwin Dalton was convicted of violently assaulting a poor young man of the name of William Yardley, at the Ram public-house, on Saturday night last, where he went to sell a few nuts; and in default of paying a fine of 3s., and 11s. 6d. costs, he was committed to gaol for 14 days. Dalton was the son of the landlord of the Ram (Absalom Dalton) and he married my great-grand aunt Catherine Sadler Oh my

Don't think so Cliff but thanks for sharing. Anne may have a William though?! There were two distinct Yardley families from Coventry going back over the years from what I can work out, from where we all descended.

My G Grandad was William but he was not born until 1850. I don't have any other Williams that would have been a young man in 1848. I couldn't even find one on Ancestry that would fit the bill (sorry). Thanks for the info though MR he may crop up sometime.

Hi Meirion, that is fantastic. As you may have read in previous posts John Yardley was my 3 x G Grandfather. You are so lucky to own this watch. I am still keeping my eyes open for one. My 3rd cousin managed to get one on ebay but I missed one and the one I posted about was a bit too expensive. Did you buy the watch or is it a family heirloom. I get very confused with hallmarks and am not an expert but the one thing I notice is that you say the watch was hallmarked in 1799 with the D. John Yardley was not born until 1811, I think this is more likely to be the Birmingham D which is 1852 which is also the date of the Nairn one.
