Is anyone researching the Tilsons who were living in Cotmanhay in the 1840s and 1850s? My research is available at www.ennever.com but I am stuck with this family so any information may be helpful! Many thanks Barry Ennever

Hi

I recentely bought a death cert for Fanny Tislon who I believe to be his sister.

It said that she had beeb born Westmeath Ireland b 144-1915 and arrived in NZ in 1863. Her husband Christopher Somerville was witness at Richards marriage to Christina in NZ. I have not been able to find out who she came to NZ with and if her parents came but I dont think so.

Hope this helps. Do you have any photos etc - I have some of FannyTilsons children anddown that line of the family tree if you are interested.

  I notice that you have Fanny Tislon --not Tilson.

I have rechecked Marriage Certificate--Christopher Somerville Cab Proprieter Wellington 13th April 1877

Family tree on Richard Tilson is about 20 pages .

I have not found out how Richard got here. You may have helped me with my brick wall.

Have photos of Richard and his family.

We could contact each other .---027 319 8020 .

 Thank you Colin..
