I'm looking for information on Tidlesley's from the Halesowen area.My Great Grandmother is Annie Matilda Tildesley, born in Halesowen in Oct 1879.Her father was Thomas Tildesley, born in Halesowen in July 1845 and died in October 1900 in New York City.Thomas' father was William Henery born in 1824 in Halesowen.Thomas' mother and William's wife was Ann Hadley born in 1825 I believe in Halesowen, and I think her father is John.Thomas' siblings include William, Sarah, Francis, Benjamin and Ellen.
Thomas' wife and my ggrandmother's mother was Elizabeth Lockley, born in May 1848 in Sedgley, Stafford.Her father was Daniel Lockley and her mother Phoebe Turner.She died in NYC in March 1923.
The 1861 census had William Tidlesley living at 180 Bromsgrove St with Ann and the aforementioned children along with Sarah Bissell, age 72, who is listed as a widow and mother in law.
William and Ann were married in Feb 1845.
Any additional information on the Tildesley, Lockley or Turner families or on Sarah Bissell would be appreciated.
