(Author: the result of this investigation is that no connection can be found between the Tunley family (Staffordshire farm workers)and our own Tunaley family who were craftsmen).






According to this record involving one Samuel White (source: Norton Family History) Godfrey Tunaley was a Farmer, 1811, in the township of Horninglow, Staffs.

Yet according to one copy of the 1841 Census, Godfrey (aged 33 i.e. b. 1808) was an agricultural labourer living at Dalbury Lees. Examination of the residential status of Samuel White was carried out 1811 making it virtually impossible for this second Godfrey Tunaley to have been the Godfrey referred to in the Samuel White document.


In 1861, Anna (or Anne) Tunley, widow aged 44, was living in the parish of St. Werburgh in Derby (Ponsonby Terrace) with her son Samuel, confectioner/baker, aged 21, birthplace Dalbury Lees. The death of a Godfrey Tunaley is recorded on the BMD register in Q2 1859 (ref 6b 208, Burton on Trent); this may have been Samuel’s father OR Godfrey Tunley born 1794 OR they may be one and the same person.
