I did a quick search in the surname interests and there is a teddy tilling rootschatter who has registered an interest in the London based Tilling surname.

I can't seem to find a way of finding out how long ago this rootschatter was active. Clicking on the name doesn't achieve anything and a search comes up with nothing.

Is there something I am missing with regard to finding out when a rootschatter was last active?

Hi Girl Guide,

Not quite sure how I got to it but looks like teddy tilling was last active in 2007. A member for two years but no posts.

I think I clicked on the little picture of what looks like a baby's face next to chatter's name on surname interest table.

(Added: Yes that's it. Just done it again.  ;D)

Oh thanks for that Tony, something to remember for next time.

2007, that's 13 years ago so no point in making any contact with him then.  May have died for all we know.

Girl Guide,

If you have an Anc. account, and win the bid, maybe the best option would be to create a basic, public tree for Richard and Mary Ann, and attach digitised images of the menu. Adding a note that you have the original and would pass it on. It might attract the attention of any descendent researchers. And if not, at least others who have Richard and Mary Ann in their tress could copy the digitised version, keeping it 'alive' in some sense.


Also, I've followed up these possible children and there doesn't seem to be that many grandchildren of Richard and Mary Ann, and quite a few didn't marry (I haven't followed them all so can't say for sure).

Children of Richard and Mary Ann (who reached adulthood):
Mary Charlotte & John Alfred
11 children

George & Julia
3 children: 2 sons died young, 1 son still-born

William Henry & Julia
3 children: all survived to adulthood, 2 unmarried, 1 married (Constance, possibly 1 child)

Hannah & Frederick
4 children: all survived to adulthood

Frederick Francis & Alice Mary
5 children: all survived early childhood

Emma Woodhatch & John
1 child: survived to adulthood; Emma and John appear to have emigrated to New Zealand

Laura Ellen
unmarried

Walter James & Bessie
no known children;  Walter and Bessie appear to have emigrated to US in 1910s

Jane Florence & Samuel Jonathan
3 children: 1 died in childhood, 1 died in adulthood (unmarried), 1 married (Percy Edward, possibly 1 child)

Richard & Hester Henrietta
no known children


Attached is a fuller picture of the (possible) children. There could be mistakes here.

Also, I found an item for the marriage of son Walter to Bessie Gibberd, which gives some more insight into the family.

South London Press
15 Oct 1892
Marriage of Miss Gibberd
- wedding took place on Wednesday
- of Bessie, only daughter of John Gibberd,
- of 477 Old Kent Road
- to Walter James, son of
- Mr Richard Tilling,
- of Southwark
- the event was one of more than passing interest
- Mr Gibberd is one the largest traders in South London,
- and has numerous branches under his name throughout
- the whole of the metropolis,
- sufficient evidence of his popularity and business influence
- Mr Tilling, too, is equally popular
- he his a gentleman who carries on the extensive printing and
- lithographic business in Great Dover Street
- and whose name almost amounts to a household word in Southwark and Newington
- the alliance of two such well-known and respected families was
- therefore an event which their friends and neighbours took occasion to celebrate
...
- the presents numbered nearly 100
- and the majority were of a costly description, including:
- a house at Clapham from Mr Gibberd
- a magnificent piano from the mother of the bride

Goodness Cuffie, you've been busy  :D

I don't have a sub to Ancestry so I can't put an image of the picture on there.  I'll see if I can get some pics on here.  May have to resize to get it on.  Probably won't be super duper but will give an idea of them.

Perhaps someone else may be able to get them on to Ancestry?

Let me know if you win the bid and I'll put a tree on Anc. And we'll see if we get any bites.
