Sully/Sulley
« on: Tuesday 19 September 17 23:20 BST (UK) »
Please help As I have hit a brick wall. I have been researching my ancestor Richard Sulley born abt 1775 for the last 25 years.
Richard Sulley and Anna Sutton were married 14 Apr 1795 in St.Mary Parish, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England. They are my 3X great grandparents. Yes that is correct as I am very old. It seems that Richard has no history before marriage.
I have taken an Ancestry DNA test -- another person has also most recently taken one and we are related.
That person is listed as possible range of 4th to 6th cousin. They have listed a Nathan Sulley born 1730 in Gedling, Nottinghamshire. He was married to a Hannah abt. 1751.
It seems very likely if we are distant cousins that Richard b. abt 1775 and Nathan b. 1730 are also related.
Perhaps they are father and son or Grandfather and Grandson??
Help would be very much appreciated.

Thomas and Mary Sully also had a son called Nathan, baptised 11 Nov 1753 in St Mary's Arnold. So certainly a family name.

Marriage Same church, 18 Oct 1742 Thomas Sully and Mary Mellers.

Thomas and Mary seem to have baptised 9 children in Arnold.

Still searching, please need help. I have a Registry Transcription listing Richard Sulley with a source of Volume 15, Page 522. Death 1840 Nottingham. Collection from United Kingdom England. Record set "England & Wales Deaths 1837-2007"   How would I be able to see if there is any more information listed? 
Thank You,
Ken

This burial doesn't appear on my FHS disc. The GRO index gives Richard's age as 70.

Getting the death certificate would tell you where they died, who registered the death and the cause -- this could give you useful info but might be completely useless. it'll cost you 9.25 either way.

I will try the GRO to see and the cemetery information is very good.
I truly believe they both have been found.
Thank you both so very much.
