I have come across a family bible at a car boot, with birth and some death details for the name Tinsley. Given to Austin Tinsley 28th July 1861 from the G B Sunday school, Long Clawson Willy Tinsley born May 14th1876, Died December 22nd 1876 Herbert Tinsley born April 29th 1877 John Tinsley born Dec 7th 1877, Died December 16th 1877 Emma Tinsley born Dec 21st 1879 Sarah Ann Tinsley born April 11th 1882 George Henery Tinsley born Aug 7th 1884 Arthur & Elizabeth Tinsley born Feb 23rd 1887, died March 14th 1887 William Tinsley born June 28th 1888 Edward Tinsley born September 28th 1889 Fanny Tinsley born August 23rd 1892 William Hernest Tinsley born March 12th 1897 ( Note: William Hernest has been lined through and the name Charles Horace substituted under neath). Sarah, May 14 die De 22 1876 Gerly Tyers Tinsley born July 31st 1899 Ernest Lock Tinsley born Jan 13th 1916 Mother died Nov 16th 1923, Buried Nov 19th age 72 Dad died May 12th 1907 Sarah Ann Tinsley died May 1949 Horace Tinsley Buried 28th Oct , 19 years Buried Mrs Swain Sep 1 1942 Age 80 George Tinsley died on April 3rd 1973 Emma Burdett died Dec 23rd 1973, Nee Tinsley. I hope this is of use to someone, it seemed these details would be lost, if a family member wants the bible ( FOC) contact me, it is old and tatty dated 1860. Regards, Bill

What a lovely find Bill, I wish it was my family. How can people give these away I never know. Sue

I have just come across your posting (isn't Google wonderful?!)... & think that my fiancée is related to that family!!! She is descended from an Elizabeth Tinsley, born in Long Clawson in 1872. I'm not 100% certain how she is linked to your family, but that is my task for later today!!!

I am intrigued, because I THINK Elizabeth had an illegitimate son - my fiancée's grandfather - as I can find no marriage record for Elizabeth... she is living away from home as a servant on the 1891 census... & dies aged 26 in June 1898. Think I need to order some certificates!!

I'm not sure if you still have this bible, but I could reunite it with the right bloodline, if you were willing to part with it...

Let me know.
