Edward Tyldesley 1582-1622 married Elizabeth Preston in the Priory Church of St Mary and St Michael at Cartmel on 15 September 1605. The registers also record the christening of their eldest son, Thomas Tyldesley, on 10 September 1612, and the burial of their second son Edward Tyldesley on 8 June 1621:
Edward Tildsley gener and Eliza : Preston 15 September
Thomas Teldesley sone of Edward Esqr 10 September
Edward Tildsley sone of Edward Myerschow Esqr 8 June
Thomas Teldesley was, of course, later to be better known as Sir Thomas Tyldesley 1612-1651. His brother, Edward Tildsley, was christened on 14 November 1615, as recorded in the Garstang registers. It is therefore likely that he was just 5 years old at the time of his death.
