* Thomas Tunaley Snr


b. 1772.

m. Elizabeth Potter,


Thomas d. Derby, 10 September, 1848.

* Parentage of Francis currently unproven. Whilst it is most likely he was the last son of Thomas Tunaley Snr.(click here), there remains some doubt as there is no mention of Francis in Thomas' will and there appears to be no birth or baptisn/christening records which name the parents of Francis, as is the case with the other children. No Tunaleys named as attendant at Francis' marriage on his marriage certificate. Only signatories on this certificate are Francis himself and the official clerk to the marriage. Hannah marks with a cross.
