The Wadleigh Chronicle


This extensive study indicates that virtually all of the Wadleighs, Wadleys, Wadles, or Waddles in North America are descended from John Wadleigh of Bristol, England, who settled in Saco, Maine, in 1630, or were slaves on the Wadly Plantation near the town of Wadley, Georgia. This volume traces thirteen generations, and includes the female lines. Each entry is presented in an easy-to-follow manner, with a numbering system and an extensive table of contents naming each family covered. When additional lineage information is known about an individual leading to other immigrants, this has been included. Entries are documented, and a reference section is found at the back of the book. Useful indexes and appendices enhance this comprehensive work. They include an index of direct descendants, an index of locations documenting the presence of Wadleighs and their descendants in nearly every state in the union, and a family name index. Allied families include Gilman, Treworgie, Brewster, Libby, Strong, Holton, Plucker, Pillsbury, Batchelder, Brown, Burnham, Enns, Hogan, Lunstrum, Morrill, Nice, Paige, Smith, Taylor, Thing and Wolfer.
