Hello,

My name is Earl Davis from Staffordshire in England. I am researching the THORLEY family who lived in the following parishes of Staffordshire.

Dilhorne from the mid 1600's
Cheadle from the early 1800's
Longton from the mid 1800's

I would love to "talk" to anyone else researching THORLEY's in North Staffordshire, especially the above parish's.

Earl.

Dear Earl

My family tree research has now led me to the Thorley's in Staffordshire. In particular, Longton and Stoke-on-Trent. I have just found a whole tree on ONEWORLDTREE going back to Samuel Thorley. I'm really excited by all of this as my great-great-grandmother was Mary Thorley, daughter of William Thorley & Ellen Bell (b 1868-1869) who then, for some reason, moved to Essex.

Are you on the same thread? Would love to find out anything you know about them. Mary Thorley (known as Polly) ended up being married 5 times (int hose days)! Her husbands kept dying young and she had a whole breed of kids to take care of so took in lodgers, then married them so they could feed the children!!

Hope to hear from you soon.

I have a great great grandfather William Thorley in my family born about 1812 in Hanley Staffordshire who married Hannah. They had, among others, a daughter called Harriett Thorley who married Elijah Heath in 1875. My grandmother Harriett Heath was born in 1893.
Are any of these Thorley's in your line? Love to hear from you if they are.

Hi, yes.

Mary Anne's surname was Bryan. They married in 1861 at St. Paul's, Edensor, Longton. I don't have the full details.

Hello,

I have been researching my Thorley ancestors and traced my g.g.g.grandfather Joseph Thorley (a miner) back to 1835 living in Boundary, Dilhorne with his wife Mary (maybe Howlett). Their eldest daughter was Emma, christened at Dilhorne church in January 1835. By 1837 Joseph had moved to Tunstall. The 1841 Census shows his mother Ann (age 64) was living with him. I believe another brother, James, was living in the same street (Moorland Street).
Joseph and Mary went on to have at least 9 more children. Enoch, the fifth child, is my g.g.grandfather. Joseph was a miner all his life and died 14th June 1876 in Chell.

I believe Joseph was christened on 1 November 1812 along with his twin John. And that the parents were Thomas Thorley and Ann Martin who married 28 October 1798.

Is anyone able to verify that Joseph’s parents were Thomas Thorley and Ann Martin?
Does anyone have any information that could help in tracing this Thorley line further back?
And does anyone have any information about ‘Boundary’ where Joseph lived in 1835?

Regards,

Gill Dennison (nee Thorley)

Hi Rosalie.

Just took a look at your Thorley tree. Looks a good piece of work. Interesting how different people draw different conclusions from the records. William and Hannah who married in 1838 are not a part of the Thorley family that I have devoted all that much attention to so you may well have it right but the family I had ‘pencilled in’ as theirs is the following family from the 1851 census at Blythe Marsh…

Thorley William Head M 37 Ag Lab Checkley
Thorley Hannah Wife M 32 Dilhorne
Thorley Elizabeth Daur 12 Dilhorne
Thorley William Son 10 Scholar Dilhorne
Thorley John Son 7 Scholar Dilhorne
Thorley Sarah Daur 4 Scholar Dilhorne
Thorley Mary Daur 1 Dilhorne
