The surname and people who share it

Family Trees

The family trees have all been updated, expanded and redrawn. A new tree takes the family name back to about 1300, although there is no obvious link point between that tree and the main tree that runs from about 1550 onwards.

The main family tree follows seventeen generations from about 1550 to 2004. As the complete paternal-line main tree is rather large, it is also shown in four parts which can be looked at or downloaded separately. Each file is quite big and may take several minutes to download at standard modem speeds.

There is an index with links to the trees in the chart at the end of this page.

A note about registrations and the dates of events
There was no compulsory registration of births, deaths or marriages until 1538. In 1538 (during the reign of Henry VIII) Thomas Cromwell ordered every parish in England and Wales to keep a register of every baptism, marriage and burial.

Baptisms could take place some while after birth, so baptism dates are not necessarily an indication of birth date.

Civil registration did not begin until 1837, when the registration changed to births, marriages and deaths. That is why many of the events in the trees are baptisms and burials before 1837, rather than births and deaths. There were no penalties for failing to register until 1875 and there are consequently some gaps in civil registrations between 1837 and 1875.

A note about dates
Before 1582 the church determined the calendar and the church (ecclesiastical) year started on 25th March. So, for example, 31st December 1500 was followed by 1st January 1500, but the day after 24th March 1500 was 25th March 1501.

From 1582 there was a new style of year that started on 1st January. However, this new style January - December year was not adopted by the church in England until 1752. As a result, during the interim 170 years (between 1582 and 1752) the church and new style years were out of kilter. Dates during this period are often recorded as (for example) 1601/1602, being the ecclesiastical / newstyle alternatives.

Although both dates are in our records, the computer program that was used to draw the family trees cannot handle this double dating, so the dates in the family trees as drawn may vary (by one) from the dates given in other sources.

All the information in the family trees is in public records. Nevertheless, we have tried not to publish information about living people who do not wish their details to be on the internet. The trees already exclude people who have asked that their details are not published. If information about you or your family is included and you would like it to be removed, please click here to tell us and we will make the changes as quickly as possible.

We are very grateful to Jane Tytherleigh, Pat Tytherleigh, Jo Trafford-Owen, Peter Fisher, Robert Titherley and Pam Titherley for information about the earlier generations.
