Edward Tunaley


b. 1806

m. Mary Ann Coxon, Sheffield, 1842.

Records indicate that Edward married Mary Ann only after the birth of their sixth child (see also Thomas Tunaley Jnr.)

Edward d. 9-3-1865.


Eliza Tunaley who is shown as informant on Edward Tunaley's death certificate in 1865 is also shown as living at Park St., Derby prior to her marriage 1869.

1881 census has Edward John Shaw, aged 23, birthplace St. Werburgh's Derby, working as a Coal Merchant's Clerk in Ipswich St. Mary, Suffolk.

Interestingly, Park Street where Sarah was living prior to marriage was where Ann Tunaley (daughter of Samuel Tunaley) and John Walker were living, according to the 1861 census.

There is therefore a suggested link between John Walker and Joe Shaw Snr (railway manager) in terms of employment within the railway industry.
