Thats a very unusual name. "Worn out after 20 years" - such a poignant phrase. Poor

Ruding.

The Ruding Family of Leicester seemed to have been reasonably prominent in Leicester from the 1500's to the 1800's. However I cannot find any link between the Rudings and the Veaseys (apart from this name!)
