Pardue Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Pardue include Pardy, Pardie, Pardee, Purdie, Purdew, Purdy, Purdoe, Pardoe and many more.

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Pardue were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
