My Varney or Verney ancestors likely came from Denmark as Vikings, Norsemen who settled in Normandy around the year 800. After William I conquered England in 1066, Verneys moved from the Norman village of
St. Paul du Vernay (vernay is old French for alder grove) and settled in Buckinghamshire (county Bucks) around the village of Middle Claydon. The name is not mentioned in the lists of the original invaders in 1066, but records show Verneys in England at least as early as 1133.
In the 1400's, a Verney was an escort to an English princess who went to Scotland and married a Scottish prince. In the early 1500s, one Verney left his wife and family in England and traveled to Brazil, where he lived for about 8 years, siring several children by an Indian woman before leaving that family and returning to England.
A Verney was, at some time, Mayor of London and there are 2 street names containing Verney in London. A branch of the family was granted a Lordship in 1700 in Ireland (Barons of Belturbet, Viscounts of Fermaugh). That title expired in 1800 due to lack of a male heir.
One of the more noted Verneys was Sir Edmund, who was Knight Marshall and standard bearer to Charles I in the English Civil War. Sir Edmund had one son who fought on the kings side, and another who fought on the side of the Parliamentarians against his father. During the climactic battle of the war, Sir Edmund was killed. His grip on the kings standard was so tight that his hand had to be cut off his corpse after the battle to take the standard away. His home, Claydon House, near Middle Claydon is a noted tourist draw, and is listed in the English National Trust. Claydon House was a frequent visiting place of Florence Nightingale, sister of a Verney bride in the 1800's. There are several ghost stories associated with the house..
A fine 18th century house with some of the most perfect rococo decoration in England. A series of great rooms have wood carvings in Chinese and Gothic styles, and tall windows look out over parkland and a lake. One of Englands most extraordinary houses. In continuous occupation by the Verney family for over 350 years, Claydon was originally a Jacobean manor house, but remodeled in the 1750's. The house has relics of the exploits of the Verney family in the English Civil War and also on show is the bedroom of Florence Nightingale, a relative of the Verneys and a regular visitor to this tranquil place. Now part of Britain's National Trust for preservation of historic homes.
The exterior of Claydon House can be seen in the recent film version of Jane Austin's Sense and Sensibility.
Some event took the Varney's from whom I descend, from England to Barbados, West Indies, in the 17th century. Whether they were indentured to plantation owners there, or were landowners, we don't know at this time. The evidence is that they were in Barbados for 25 years and came to America in 1649 entering the country at Ipswich, MA. A Thomas Verney attempted a plantation in Barbados about the 1620's so it's possible there is a connection. And thus, I continue to investigate. We do know that the children of William and Bridget Varney were all born there, but ended their lives in Massachussetts, in America.
In this report, I once again take it to my grandfather, Herbert Maxfield, to save space and tired eyes.

Notes for NICHOLAS VARNEY: Stackpole's History of Durham: 'After living a few years in Falmouth he purchased, in 1782, lot No. 17 of Stephen Hart in Royalsborough. Hart's buildings had just been burned and Varney built his house on the hill southwest of John Varney's blacksmith-shop. The house is now occupied by his great-gradson, George E. Varney. He belonged to the Society of Friends and their rules prohibited any active part in war. They protested against all taxes, any part of which was to meet war expenses. Since it was impossible to discriminate in tax-bills what portion was for war, some of the Friends refused to pay any taxes at all. When the collector of Royalsborough called on Nicholas Varney, he persistently refused payment of the amount assessed upon him. Consequently the shiriff came and seized a new milch-cow, and sought also to take away her young calf with her. The boys, unterrified by the officer's badge and ignoring the spirit of the Quaker principle of non-resistance, mixed those calves up so that the officer was unable to decide which was the right one; and finding it difficult to catch and impossible to drive any one, he went away with the cow alone. The animal was sold, and the next time the officer came that way he brought the balance of the sale money remaining after the deduction of the tax-bill. Neither husband nor wife would touch the polluted currency, and the officer could relieve himself of the responsibility for the money only by laying it upon the high shelf at a corner of the room. There the money remained untouched for many months. When the next year the officer came round for another collection, his demand was met only by an allusion to what he had done the previous year and the statement that the money he had placed on the shelf then was still there. The officer found it so and withdrawing from it the amount required, returned the balance to its former position. It proved sufficient for the third year also.'
