Mytton Family of Shropshire
« on: Wednesday 13 June 18 16:10 BST (UK) »
Hi, trying to solve a family mystery!

There's a rumour that my Great Great Grandmother's family are somehow related to the Mytton's of Shropshire. The rumours usually centre around John 'Mad Jack' Mytton, but there's nothing more specific.
My Great Great Grandmother was May Tisdale, born in Meole Brace, Shropshire about 1891. She died in Shropshire in 1961. If there was any connection, it would be from her family.
Her mother's name I believe was Jane Sheffield (born abt. 1851), so the connection would be with the Sheffield or Tisdale's and the Mytton's.
Alternatively, the connection could be further back - with Jane's mother, but I'm unsure of her maiden name, but I think she was named Harriet and possibly born about 1828 in Shropshire.

If anyone has done any research on the Mytton family I'd greatly appreciate some help if any of the names mentioned appear familiar! Or just advice on how best to tackle this mystery would also be brilliant.

Thanks!

First rule: Don't duplicate requests.

Check "surname interests" at the page bottom to see who if anyone has done any research on the surname.

My bad, my intention on the Beginners Board was just to ask for advice on how's best to start researching, whereas here I was asking if anyone had already done research on the Mytton family. Thank you for your advice.
