Surnames: Yardley, Whorrall
Hi I am looking for more info on a Robert Yardley who married a Mary Smith, I know that Robert and Mary (Smith) yardley) had at least 1 Daughter named Sarah Yardley who married a William H. Whorrall, Robert was born sometime in England and married Mary Smith sometime in England.

Robert and Mary (Smith) Yardley Daughter Sarah immigrated to the United States with her husband William H. Whorrall, and they moved to EL Paso, Illinois, which is almost in the middle of the atate. Sarah was born sometime in the late 1700's probably in Burtondassit Warwick, England.

I would love to know the names of Rober Yardley parent's and if he had any Brother's and Sister's. Thank you to who might know.

The following IGI information is probably the marriage for William Yardley, Sarah Yardley Whorrall’s grandfather. And no doubt these are his children. Except for Priscilla, IGI lists parents as William Yardley and Ann. William mentions most of them in his will. Parish registers for Wormleighton, 1586-1972 Church of England.

James is not mentioned in his father’s will, probably because he had already inherited the estate of his father’s brother William. James had an illegitimate son William to whom the inheritance would pass after the death of James. When uncle William wrote his will in 1828, James’ younger sons had not yet been born.
