Introduction:
I am very interested in my family genealogy and am currently tracing the main ARDERN family lineage, which includes the ARDEN & ARDERNE family lines, along with other variations of the name as written by the early scribes back in England.

The ARDERN’s were mainly from Cheshire –  Stockport – and Lancashire, with others spread around England and various parts of the world.,.
The other names associated with my father’s ancestors are: LEAR /LEAH, GILES, RICHARDS, of Cheshire & Lancashire, plus MOORCRAFT, GOODHEW /GOODHUE and BROOKS of Kent.
Those associated with my Mother’s family history and ancestors are: MERRICK of Culcheth, Lancashire and Wales, WORTHING & DAVIES of Wales, and FRANCIS & GREER of Northern Island.
We now have members of all these families descendants living both here in New Zealand and also in Australia.
