In the book "The History and Directory of the Borough of Derby

By Stephen Glover

Published 1843

the residences and occupations of eight of the various Tunaleys are given as follows:

"Tunaley Edward, cabinet maker, Full Street.

Tunaley William, Silk Dyer, Upper Brook Street.

Tunaley Thos Snr., Silk Dyer, 4, Tenant Street.

Tunaley Thos Jnr. Silk Dyer 7, Derwent Street.

Elizabeth Potter


m. Thomas Tunaley Snr., 16-10-1795

Elizabeth d. Derby, 5

November 1843, aged 72





Eliza (Choice), Henry,

Alfred, Thomas, Kate, Frank

and Sarah Ann (Shaw) are

all mentioned in the 1874

Will of Henry Tunaley

(1800-1874) and therefore

all surviving at that time.


The death of mother Mary Ann in 1856 appears to have caused some breakdown of the family unit.
