Tuley Family in Wales

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Mark Report 15 Feb 2013 17:58

I am trying to find a connection with the Tuley Family, head of the Family was william Tuley living in Wales in c1900.

I understand he left Wales around the start of the first world was and moved to Greenwich.

I also understand that one of the Children drown in Wales but cannot find any inquest records

Hi Mark and welcome to the boards.

To help us find him on a census.......when and where was William Tuley born?

What information do you have about his wife and their children?

Why do you think that you have a connection with the Tuley family from Wales?
Is this his death?

Please check your info.......specifically the spelling of the surname

When and where was William born?

What relation was he to you?


Mark records his own surname as Tuley, but that could simply be down to the way the name has evolved.


Reggie Report 16 Feb 2013 10:45 save time for others............

There is a so-called William John Tuley in Wales in 1891. Ancestry mistranscription. Surname is actually Phillips
