My father-in-law is Alan Charles Tull, born 1914 and has brother, John, and sisters Hilda, Mabs, Etta and Wynn. Their family home was Reading. Any one out there recognize the names and family?

This may be a cincidence, but the only Alan I have in my Tull file is Alan Waters Tull, born 9 Dec 1885 in Somerset Co, Maryland...he DIED, apparently single, in 1913, not sure where. He had several sibs, notably a brother named Oscar, who married a Mary A. Long. This MAY have been one of their kids. Any clue to the parents' names???

The Alan that I am looking in to is still alive and will be 88 years old on 7th April this year. He married an Elizabeth Josephine Morgan McGrath on 26 th December, sixty years ago this coming Boxing Day, at Burryport, Glamorgan. I would like to find out about the family for their 60th anniversary. Thank you for your response. Regards, Sonia.

Maybe I did not make myself clear....
The Tull family, a closed group by all accounts, tended to name kids in the old world way (after someone who just died). Your Alan was born in 1914, my Alan died the year before...........
Have you gone to the Tull Website or the Tull Research Group???

Okay, another thought....

My Tull family file contains only related Tulls (linked) and it has 1779 Tull last names, not including wives, and 30 Tully's from around Clonfert, Galway, Ireland. These go back to about 1060 A.D., but are not proven.....Most Tulls in America can trace back to two guys from Berkshire and some people connect them to Matthew Tull/Tully, who was probably assassinated by Cromwell (he seized the family property for opposing him). Some of us think that the "problems" were the reason the Tulls left Ireland and then Berkshire...there ARE Tull researchers in the Berkshire area who are part of the Tull Online Research Group. That is why I ask if you have contacted them.......

Surnames: Tull, Masters
Just checked into the message boards again and now know that our Charles Tull was listed on the 1881 Census in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire as being born in Windsor, Berkshire, England. He was 57 in 1881 and was married to Sarah, who was born in Bath, Somerset, Eng, and possibly born Sarah Oakford. Children were Annette (my great grandmother), Oakford Dudley, Emily and a grandson Charles Bryce (mother not known to me as yet). This Charles died in 1891 and Annette, married to George Masters was found in the 1901 Census in Newhall, Derbyshire. Is this Charles connectecd to the Berkshire Tulls that you are referring to?

They could well be related, but the Tull "brothers" left England around 1660, so this may be a split that occurred long ago. Roy Juch at <royjuch@juch.net> would be much more well-versed than I in the English Tulls......
