'Audley Pedigrees' by A L Reade

In the 1920s George Audley (see photograph below) of Liverpool commissioned A L Reade to undertake research into the Audley surname. As a result of this work a 20-chapter book titled ‘Audley Pedigrees' was privately published.

250 copies were produced of which 247 copies were presented to various libraries.

When A.L. Reade died in in 1950 all his research records were deposited in the 'Special Collections & Archives' section of Liverpool University Sydney Jones Library.

The family trees presented on the 'Family Tree' page of this website: includes and extends the information contained within Chapters 8, 11, 14, & 20 of 'Audley pedigrees' and incudes previously unpublished research by A L Reade.
