What I would now be interested to know is whether the Liverpool born Cresswell John Tayleur (1838-?), and Lucy Maria Stowell (1842-1891), had any children, though I suspect they did not.

Thank you, Peter.  The Great Bolas property information is very interesting.  :)  Do you know which land was granted to Thomas in Great Bolas?  I had this Thomas and his son Thomas marked down as "of Longdon on Tern".   Do you know anything else about Thomas and his family line, please?

I ventured down this line awhile back - all my ancestors were called Thomas Taylor! I suggest you search for Tayleur on the Shropshire Archives Online Catalogue - there's plenty there relating to this line.

I am descended from the Tayleur family of Shropshire and Devon.  My great grandmother was born a Tayleur.  There are no Tayleurs remaining with their surname.  If you would like to know about them I can help you.

Hi everyone,
I'm working with a local group trying to save an old national school from demolition. We're busy at the moment trying to research the history of the building and have a record for the managers of the school in the 1840's-50's, one of them named as H. Tayleur of Buntingsdale Hall. We're desperate to trace more history of the family and in particular the members of the family who lived at Buntingsdale. If anyone has any information it would be great if you could help out. We know so far that William Tayleur became MP for Bridgewater in his late 20's and Charles Tayleur moved to Warrington, founded the Vulcan Engineering Works and helped build the Menai Bridge before moving on to ships. He was the builder of the White Star Line's 'original Titanic' RMS Tayleur. We'd love to know where these two fit in to the family and of the connection they or other members had with the local community and especially the old national school.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Which school is it you are trying to save?  Is it in the Shropshire area?

Thanks so much,

It's the Little Drayton National School as was, more recently Little Drayton Community Centre. We're not sure how much the Tayleur connection might help but we're trying to chase every lead possible at the moment. As a group we've been working since August to try and reopen the building as the hub of the community but found out the week before Christmas that the county council have decided to sell to a developer. We're hoping if we can build up enough information on the building and its history we may still be able to raise enough interest with regards to its historical importance that we may still be able to save it. As part of the connection to the Tayleurs we know that they used Samuel Pountney Smith as architect for remodeling work to Buntingsdale Hall and that he was also the architect for Christ Church just across the road from the school building. With H. Tayleur being named a manager of the school around the time of its opening and the similarity of the building to other national schools built by Samuel Pountney Smith we're wondering if we actually have one of his 'lost' works. The school building itself is on Buntingsdale Road just over a mile from Buntingsdale Hall.
