Looking for Veritys in England

Journal by EmilyS

My Verity line were from London,England but have heard they were originally from Yorkshire but haven't made the connection yet. My Grandfather was Arthur Leopold Verity born in London in 1882. His Father was John Abednego born in 1853 in London and his father was also John born in 1836 and was a tailor by trade. Birthplace unknown. John's father was Benjamin who married MaryAnn Patrick in Bloomsbury,London.His father was Abednego who married Elizabeth King at St Marys Church,Marylebone,London,England in 1811.
Does anyone have these names in their Trees? I'd like to find out more about Benjamin and Abednego and possibly their parents etc.

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:London_Research_Aids try this site it has lots of free resources.

If you want to trace the Yorkshire you want the West Riding and search Vardy and Varty. The name became a surname from a nickname. The same person or family tended to play the character. Verity -posh southern spelling- was a character in medieval Miracle Plays for which York is famous.

Sorry..I guess I still had Verity on the brain...that should be John BALMER. The rest of the information is correct. Sorry for the mix up.
