Dear Jane,


Thanks so much for your terrific website. I am tracing my Tilley ancestors and check the site frequently. My great grandfather, Alfred Robert Tilley was born in Cottingham in 1845. In 1880, he married Elizabeth Boon(born in Gretton) and had 6 sons.


The family was living in Middleton when they emigrated to Canada in 1912. According to my research Alfred's parents were William & Ann Tilley. In the 1881 census, I found William & Ann living on Church St. By 1901 Ann was alone living on School Hill in Middleton.


I would appreciate hearing from anyone who could help me with my research.
