Thomas Allington Tilson

Postby Peter Tilson » 19 Mar 2021, 21:05

My family originate from Kings Lynn my great great great grandfather was Thomas Allington Tilson born 1823.
My great great grandfather was Walter Tilson born in Kings Lynn in 1851.
His son was Thomas Tilson 1874 – 1942
Think he was one of 13 children with many siblings dying very young
My grandfather was Robert Walter Tilson 1899- 1952.
There are entries from a Sue Lamb and Ray and Smiler from 2008 and 2014 talking about Thomas Allington Tilson and Walter Tilson.
I have also seen reference to an Abraham Tilson.
As the surname Tilson originates from Tile and Tils which have a jewish history I would be interested to know if the family were connected to the jewish community in Norwich.
A sister of Thomas Tilson -Mary Ann Tilson married born 1871 married Isaac Pellerin Sunderland in 1890.
They emigrated and Mary died in West Virginia USA in 1964.
Old posts refer to William Allington Tilson
from Sue Lamb in 2008
Teddy Bear 1959 in 2008
Smiler in 2009
Robin Hood in 2012
Ray 2014
Any information would be much appreciated.

To confirm your Jewish connection the best way would be to have your ancestry DNA done.

I found a couple of newspaper clippings for Walter, one which I've attached had about his death and there was another involving an altercation with his wife in 1877.

There was a post from Ray in 2014 to say that Elizabeth Tilson married his great grandfather Robert William Robinson and that details could be found on the ancestry website.
Could someone kindly direct me to that.
Was Elizabeth a daughter of William Allington Tilson.
How does Abraham Tilson fit in.
Have seen pictures of a Ronald Tilson and Walter Tilson attending a wedding in Docking in 1950 are these people related.
Would really appreciate your help.
Walter Tilson moved to Sunderland in 1871 he previously lived at Priory Lane Kings Lynn.
I believe he was a mariner like his father William.
I think William's parents may be William and Susanna Tilson born in Kings Lynn in 1762.
May have been publicans at the Black Lion Pub.
Thank you.

This any help?....... William Allington Tilson married Elizabeth Bullen Dec 1845. They did have a daughter, Elizabeth Ann Tilson b 1860 d 1937............ The Elizabeth who married Robert Robinson, was Walter Tilson and Ellen's ( nee Millburn) daughter. Born in 1876 died 1956. That makes her William's Grandaughter. If you want to see more, you need to go to Ancestry.co.uk. But to get detailed info, you have join as a member. Happy to do searches for you if you wish.

Looked at Ancestry website but nothing really before William Allington Tilson and spouse Elizabeth Tilson.
Somebody has suggested William's father was also called William and his wife was called Sarah.
The helpful post on KLF suggests Williams mum was a Susanna and his father ran a pub after retiring as a ships Pilot.
Given the family history of seafaring this sounds likely.
If anyone can go back further to the 1600 and 1700 I would love to hear from them.
Am I correct in thinking that Walter Tilson killed at the Some in 1915 was the son of Edward Tilson the brother of Walter Tilson who came to Sunderland in 1871.
I have seen pictures of a combined Tilson wedding showing a Walter Tilson in the 1950's how does this fit in relative to William Allington Tilson.
Was Abraham Tilson who was lost at sea off Amble the brother of William Allington Tilson.
Kind regards
Peter

Yes Peter you are correct about Walter. William Tilson and Elizabeth Bullen had (amongst others) Walter b 4.3.1850 and Edward b 1857. Edward married Mary Ann Everitt 28.6.1882, they had Walter b 4.3.1891 d 4.2.1915........... Re Ronald and Walter, they were the sons of Frank Tilson ( and Winifred Sarah Gooch),who was the son of Edward and Mary. Ronald 1923-2010, married Marie Steward Newby at Docking in 1950, so that could have been the wedding photo. Walter b 1925 died in Ipswich 1999 and Ronald 2010 in Norwich. Hope this helps. T
