Henry given in Kelly's Directory for 1883 as "fly proprietor"

and horse dealer of Fairland St., Wymondham (Wymondham lies directly en

route between Norwich and Newmarket), it seems certain Henry had

significant dealings with horses at Newmarket as would his second son

Thomas (b. 1859) who on the same website is described as "horse breaker".

In particular, go to the web page of Henry's third son, the jockey, Robert

James Tunaley b. 1861.
