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.

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.

I might be wrong but I think the father of John Abednego Veritys b 1854 was born in 1815.
I could not find the John b1815 on the 1841/61 census to cross check.

I am still looking for the baptism of John Abednego Verity 1854 to find his parents names.
John Verity occupation Tailor is shown on John Abednego Verity's marriage cert but no mothers name. In 1851/71 the census suggests is mother is Mary ???

You say John Abednego's father John was born in 1836 but I could not find a John b 1836 (taylor on any of the census.

Perhaps someone else will have more luck.

Thank you so much noggin and RZC for your help and suggestions. This is awesome!! Its more than I already had. Thank you again.

Now....do you know where I could find the birthplace etc and parents/siblings of John Verity who was born about 1768 d 1835 in Huntingdon,marr. (1)Elizabeth Palmer (2)Sarah Cook in April 1813 in Little Paxton,Huntingdonshire? Sarah and John had 8 children,one being my GGG Grandfather James b.1809 in ?,Huntingdonshire. Died 1865 in Huntingdonshire and is buried in Aug 1809 Northampton Cemetery #5491, Northampton, Northamptonshire He marr. Elizabeth Barnard in 02 Aug 1831 Brampton,Huntingdonshire. James was baptized 01 Aug 1809 All Saints and St.Johns Church,Huntingdon, I have the marriage cert. for James and Elizabeth.

John has been my brick wall for a long time. HELP!!

''John Verity who was born about 1768 d 1835 in Huntingdon''

Is this John Verity 1768 related to the father of John Abednego Veritys b 1854 ie John born 1815 ??.

Grandfather was Arthur Leopold Verity born in London in 1882
G/Grangfather John Abednego Veritys b 1853 in the St Pancas area of London
GG/grandfather John Verity b c 1815 born St Pancras, Middlesex, England
GGG/Grandfather James Verity b 1809 in Huntingdonshire ***

*** not possible John Verity b c 1815 and father James Verity 1809.

I am confused you seem to be talking of two families.

If you plan to work back from John Abednego Verity you need to get his birth cert to find both parents names. I think it was John Verity c 1815. That is what fits in with the census.

England & Wales, FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915
Name: John Abednego Verity
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1853

I am based in the UK & I am happy to help you once you can establish both John Abednego Verity's parents. I tried looking for a marriage abt 1850 for a John Verity and Mary ??? without success.

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.
