The TILLEY family, Braceborough
« on: Saturday 19 August 17 14:22 BST (UK) »
I have seen records of two members of the TILLEY family who lived in Braceborough over several generations as follows:

John TILLEY born 1685; died Braceborough October 31st 1749
John TILLEY born 1715; died Braceborough October 22nd 1772

Are there any records to suggest either or both men were born in the village or locally? I realise that there are Tilley families all over the country but wondered if this particular lot had "immigrated" from elsewhere.

Many thanks - Alan

The first link states that John Tilley lived in Knossington, which is not in the Langtons.
The actual record gives the abode as East Langton.

Interestingly, there is a baptism on 15th May 1689 for a John Tilly of East Langton, but no parents listed. There is also an Ann Tilly in 1683 but, again, no parents.

A John Tilley married Elizabeth Scampton in East Langton on 13th October 1714.

East Langton is approximately 35 miles from Braceborough.

P.S. A John Tilly of East Langton was buried on 8th February 1730

I guess what the two familysearch links really proves is how widespread the Tilley famil(y)ies really are.

Yes - I was wondering whether this Tilley family was associated with my own which originated around Kibworth / Smeeton Westerby in Leicestershire in the early 17th century and for several generations lived in the Langtons.

I do therefore have John Tilley who married  Sarah Scampton. They had five children (4 sons; 1 daughter) and he died in 1747

John Tilley, their eldest son (born 1715) died in 1796.

So, no further forward with the Braceborough lot

Many thanks
