TWIGS OF THE TREE
PARDO - PARDOE - PARDIEU - PARDUE - PERDUE - PERDIEU - PURDUE

In 1928 Robert Hartley Perdue of Cleveland, Ohio, commissioned Mrs. Florence Meglera (a professional Genealogist) of 9 Ashburn Place, Boston, Massachusetts to trace the Pardue, Perdue, Purdue Lineage. It was completed in 1934. Mimeograph paper was used, allowing for duplication. 52 copies were made and distributed.

ALTON ABSHER, MD spent 20 years searching his family tree. Ending in 1966, publishing a book titled "Some Early Settlers of Upper Sumner Co. Tennessee" of the Hobdy, Cotton, Durham, Gillespie, Perdue , Absher, Mattox, Cochran and Mayes Familes. This study was accurate, identifying Daniel, Matthew, Luke, Eli, and Asa Perdue's Genealogy lineage to Meshack and Eleanor (Dillon) Perdue of Frankln County, Virginia.

The records of England, Ireland, Scotland; churches, courts, history societies, probate registries, wills and Church Bell Society, British Museum Library, Somerset House, British Registry in London, Bishops registry in Worchester, Birmingham Ulsters Quarterly meeting and various friends, libraries in England and Ireland. (In all the various ways of spelling it.) The earliest mention of the name Perdue occurs in the rolls of the hundreds in Cambridgeshire, England in the year 1273. There we find the name of John Perdue and William Perdue. The name Purdue also occurs on the same rolls; being 400 years before the Huguenots migrations from France.

In Reply to RHP'S 25 Aug. 1928 query of his research of his Perdue Ancesters "As For as I have traced the Perdues, they had no connection with the Huguenot's. The mention of the name Perdue occurs in the rolls of the Hundreds in Cambridgeshire, England, in the year 1237, where we find the entries of John Purdue and William Purdue".

Map note (1)
Purdieu is the spelling of the name in 1998 Paris France Phone Book. They could be the first of the Huguenots to leave France).
Map note (2)
William Purdue (1) progenitor of the Bell-Founders used the fleur-de-lis with his initials on each bell he made or repaired. The fleur-de-lis "meaning flower of the Lily" was used by a Norman Royal family
Map Note (3)
The fleur-de-lis is also used by the "French Gender" club along the Mississippi and Louisiana Gulf Coast of which I am a member.

The name Purde also appears in the rolls 400 years before the Huguenots migrated from France. The most reasonable explanation of the name is that it was a motto of the Norman family that bore it. The Latin "Perdeum" (By Gods help) became the Norman French Per_Due which passed the variants Pardue, Perdue, Perdeu, etal. It is interesting to note that the great EARLs of Norfork (A county adjoining Cambridgeshire) Walter, and Roger BI God, bore the same name translated into English. The BiGods were suppressed by the King of England and the name ceased.

One of the earliest spelling of the name Perdue is in a report of the action for dowry to Croke Eliz in 1585. We can safely come to the conclusion that the name is Norman in origin and was borne by persons who had the right to "Bear Arms"

THE CHURCH BELLS OF WILTSHIRE,
BY H.B. WALTERS, MA, PSA

HBW 283-288
The Perdues were (itinerant) and prominent Bell Founders in England and Ireland for more than a century from (1570 - 1710.) Bells in many of the English and Irish Cathedrals and Churches were cast by them. Due to the excellent quality of the bells the numerous bells they cast for prominent churches, and the long period over which they operated, the Purdues are given considerable attention by those who have studied bells, and much is written about them.

William Purdue. 1572 - 1618 of Closworth, England; used the Fleur de Lis and initials WPAUF as his signature of the bells he made. The use of the Fleur De Lis is French (Flower of the Lilly) and shows allegiance to where he came from. Other Bell founders used similar or same signatures and did change with the younger generation such as Richard Purdue's (1600-1610 of STOFORD AND GLASTONBURY). use of the Royal Arms and Prince of Wales feather.

HBW
pages 283-288
The Bell-Founders were all of the same family and the same period. They worked together in partnership. The bells cast by them bear the initials of one-two-or three. The area has a number of Bells. Found in Sommerset, Glouchester, Wiltshire, Dorset and Devon. The Purdues were migratory (Tendencies) and they made a number of bells in Ireland, where some of the family lived for a considerable time. A bell made by Richard or Robert is in existence in Gresnock, Scotland.William Purdue was buried in Limerick Cathedral and his Epitaph;

" Here a Bell-Founder, honest and true, Till The Resurrection, Lies Perdue."

Another possibility is William Pardoe, the Merchant of the City of Worcester, England. He was a descendant (Son or Grandson) of Richard Perdo who died in the City of Worcester in 1596. William Pardoe the Merchant and Mary Amphlett married 26 Dec 1664 in Worcester England.A Grandson was born 1695/96 according to Friends, records of Worcestershire. The records of birth and marriages and death of all the children and grandchildren of William Pardoe, the Merchant, are given in the Friends' Record of Worcestershire, with the single exception of the above mentioned grandson. The Friends' Records are of members only and William Pardoe was the first to join The (Friends) Quakers

Note: MAP
The information concerning the Bell Founders is given because of its interest and history of some early English Purdues. It further identifies their origin as French and probably Huguenots. The spelling of Wm. Pardoe the merchant appeared in the documents as Pardoe, Perdue.

The Pardo-Pardoe data is in place because it supports my theory that John Pardoe(3) and John Perdieu(1) are the same and if so accepted is the progenitor of the Pardue/Perdue lineage of William Perdieu (2) and Mary Hatchett.
