    I am gg-grandson of Thomas Tilbury and Ann and lived with my wife, Dorothy (Dot), in Kent, England until her death from stomach cancer in April 2012. Shortly before her death Dot agreed to donate her corneas for transplant or research. One was found suitable for transplant and is now helping an elderly man to see again. It is a great comfort to me to know that a part of her is still living. I have two sons and five grandchildren.

      Hi Rachael, Great news! How are you related? Very little to offer about them I'm afraid so would love to hear about any information you have. Cheers, Linden

    Thank you for your excellent site. Finally after 6 months I have found my family link to Abraham Wivell and Harriet Tilbury. I am Abraham's Great Great Great Grandson via his son Edward James Wivell who came to Australia and died in Adelaide, South Australia on 16 December 1909. My Grandmother had a
    trophy given to Abraham Wivell for his invention of the fire ladder but she
    did not have the family knowledge to make the link.

    Hello Tilbury family! My name is Madeline and I believe Thomas Tilbury and Ann Durden are my gggg grandparents. My great grandparents were George Herbert Tilbury and Florence Mary Tilbury (they were cousins) my grandfather who practically raised me until he passed away from cancer in 2000 was their son Augustus Carlos Faulkner Tilbury. I dont know a whole lot about that side of my family but I do know that my great grandfather, George Herbert moved his wife and daughter to the Philippines and George Herbert was a tax collector for Head hunter tribes (so the story goes). He and Florence (florie) had 3 sons while living in the Philippines. All together that made 4 children, Betty, George, Augustus, and Edward. When the kids were in elementary school, G.H wanted a better education for them and moved the family to Kennewick, Washington. Where he got a job working at a grape juice company, doing their finances for them. He sent the kids to boarding school on Vancouver Island. When the depression hit, all the kids moved back home and after highschool Betty, Augustus, and Ted moved to Glendale Ca and George got a job and had a family in Alaska.
    If anyone has more information, I would love to know it! Im trying to make a family history scrap book for my grandmother for christmas.
    Thank you to everyone who contributed to this site!!

      Thanks for all your information Madeline. You may want to touch base with David Tilbury of Oregon, USA. I believe his email is 'tilbury [at] toast [dot] net' but my information is over 18 months old so if it doesn't work let me know and I'll try to find another. He has lots of history about your side of the family. Cheers, Linden

        Hello Linden!
        Thanks for the reply. I emailed David but unfortunately the message wouldn't go through. If its not a hassle I would love to get a current email or address, anything you might have. Thanks so much, I greatly appreciate it!

        • Linden4 years ago

          Hi Madeline, I've sent an email to 2 more email addresses and only one bounced. I copied you on the email so hopefully you should now be in touch. Cheers, Linden

    The following was submitted by Alison in the UK:

    I'm searching for information about Agnes Rose Tilbury, who gave birth to an illegitimate daughter, Doreen, in Marylebone, London, UK in 1926 and wonder if anybody may have a link with this family. I'd be grateful for any help or information which might provide a lead!

  • Terrie4 years ago

    Thank you for all your hard work, you have certainly helped fill in some gaps I had. Thomas Tilbury (1777) was my 4th great grandfather. Alice Matilda Tilbury was my 2nd great gandmother.

    • Linden4 years ago

      Hi Terrie, I'm really stretched for time at the moment but Alan Tilbury (http://www.arext.plus.com/) may have more information on your forebears - he's done research on Robert James Tilbury. Are you able to fill in any gaps on the descendants of Alice Matilda and Charles Stanborough? Cheers, Linden

    The following was submitted via the contact form by Liz Hill on 30 Dec 2015:

    I am trying to solve a family mystery, re my paternal grandmother's heritage. She was born in India in 1908, and raised in an orphanage/convent. Her father is acknowledged as a Harry or Henry Tilbury, no mother acknowledged anywhere we can find. She never knew her family of origin, and married HERBET JAMES BALLANTYNE IN INDIA IN 1927. DNA EVIDENCE thru Ancestry.com.au is suggesting a connection to these family names, BRADFORD, PRICHARD, FORD, PINK, CLARKE, TURNER, AND OTHERS, and we think the likely candidate is a Major William Henry TILBURY, born in 5/11/1881 died of malaria at 15th Dec 1932. He was in the right place at the right time and there is indian blood, my uncle and myself having it in our DNA, so possibly from her mother. Can anyone help
    thanks
