Hi Greg! Here is the Tonnelier/Tunnel/Tunnell lineage that starts in France to Yorkshire,Eng.(at the end of this post)Since your Tunnell's did not leave England it appears that this line ot TonnelierTunnel may also be your ancestors. I would like to hear from you anytime but especially if you find out how you connect to Thomas Tonnelier & "possibly" thru Guillaume Tonnelier-Tunnel.Because " just maybe" he had more then three kids !!! Good Luck on your research !!!Please post again because there are many Tunnell's here that would like to hear about how you will connect to Thomas Tonnelier.I am compiling on all the descendents of "Lady"Ann(Howard)& Wm.Tunnel (b.1702-03)for a Tunnell book which I hope to have
it ready by late 2008/09.Your distant cousin,Wilma M.(Cowsar)Brown .P.S.Here is my "mini"Tunnell website (& below that the Tonnelier info & Barbara Ribling's E-mail address & her website)http://hometown.aol.com/grannywmb/myhomepage/
