John Wolloff in 1841
« on: Thursday 29 September 05 13:23 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for John Wolloff born 1818-19 in Bicester.
His wife and child are living in Northamptonshire in 1841 but John is not with them.
Maybe he had gone home to mother????
Any help would be most welcome
Many thanks

Hi Beverley

A few years ago you posted a search for John Wolloff married to Martha Tilley 25th September/december 1840.  I trace my family tree back to this John Wolloff through my mother whose mother was nee Wolloff and have extensive research on John and all his 11 children.  Eventually the family moved from rural oxfordshire to Leicester and most became shoe trade workers.  There is still a cluster of people with the family name Wolloff in Leicester all of whom I think can be traced back to John and Martha.

I am interested in the origin of this name - there is just one other Phoebe Wolloff mentioned in the 1841 census but in the 1851 census she is given as Phebe Wooloff, so there may have been a name confusion.

If you are still interested in this family and the parents and ancestry of Martha Tilley I would be happy to exchange ideas.  Sorry it is some 5 years since you posted a query about Martha Tilley and John Wolloff.

If you look on Bev's profile she last posted on the board in 2009, so very unlikely to see your message.
