What would you like to know about H Tayleur?  I think it is probably William Houlbroke Tayleur who was very wealthy.  He was my 4 x ggf.
How can I help?

Hello - just joined this forum.  Firstly, Davirv - I am a Tayleur, as is my elder brother, was my sister, are my sons, is my niece.  So there are still Tayleurs around - we are from the Shropshire not the Devon (a later offshoot) side.  After Buntingsdale Hall was sold (1922?) my Grandfather (Henry) lived in Martley, Worcs until his death in 1958.  My father lived in London, then retired to Alderney in the Channel Islands.  He was the author of the Penguin Book of Home Brewing and Winemaking (if you put Tayleur into google you will find that and the RMS Tayleur as the most common results).  Certainly Little Drayton School, as well as many other community projects (local hospital, Luittle Drayton Church etc etc) were supported by the family from the 18th century, when they moved to Buntingsdale.  You should also note that pretty well all male Tayleurs were John or William (those are my brother and my names; and both my son, the elder using John, the younger also called William - my father was William Henry Treby ( from Ouarry Treby, an 18/19th C acestor); I am William Henry Brian.  These things go in families.  My Bro still has family portraits of Tayleurs by Lely, Kneller and others dating back to the 17th C.

That's probably enough for now (apart from saying the Tayleur Arms in Longdon has changed its history to reflect the RMS Tayleur rather than the local family - and Charles left Shropshire for Liverpool and the creation of the Vulcan Foundry with Stephenson after the pub started...)

Do contact me if you want more info - from a definite Tayleur

Hi guys, I feel a bit of an imposter amongst you Tayleurs.  ::)

I was wondering if someone would mind lending me a helping hand to understand the links between the Tayleurs and the Pigots of Hodnet.

I'm aware of links to the Tayleurs mainly through the existence of Rev John Tayleur Pigot (1821-1912) who was the 4th son of Thomas Pigot (1778-1840). It is actually his two brothers, Edward (1819-1905) and Henry Septimus Pigot (1826-1901), who I'm interested in, as they both served as clergy in Bolton.

I'm exploring some of the 'clergy dynasties' of the 19th century that have direct links to Bolton (my much loved home town and a source of endless fascination).

I'm struggling to research the Pigots. Census search hits are limited, IGI non-existent, and seemingly next-to-no internet interest in them. (Wow, I can pick 'em!) So—please, please, please—any assistance to move forward on the Tayleur link would be absolutely brilliant. Help!!  :'(
