Tyldesley Family History

Sir Thomas Tyldesley 1612-1651

This blog seeks to document my research into the history of the Tyldesley family.  A pedigree produced by Gillow and Hewitson in 1873 gives a useful overview of the family, though it is incomplete and contains some errors.

I am particularly interested in the three individuals—Sir Thomas Tyldesley 1612-1651, his son Edward Tyldesley 1635-1685 and grandson Col Thomas Tyldesley 1657-1715.
I am hoping to publish a new edition of the Tyldesley Diary 1712-1714 at some point in the future, though it is likely to be two or three years in preparation. This will be a project supervised by the leading Jacobite academic, Professor Daniel Szechi at the University of Manchester.

In the meantime I shall be happy to hear from anyone with an interest in the family—there is a contact link in the right-hand column.
