I am Barrie Tew from England, at present I am in the process of building a family Tree to my knowledge most of the family that I am aware of came from the Warwickshire Area, of the Midlands, England. but I have been led to believe that there was part of the family that may have Migrated to the USA. I would appreciate any information that would assist me in this connection My Gx2 Grandfather was John Tew b.1823-1902, his father was Benjamin Tew, b. 1739, In the Bulkington Area Of Warwickshire, I have details on most of the family in England.

when did the family come to USA? Name of wife? First tew's came to USA in 1600's and were mariners living in RI, MA CT. Some moved south to North carolina, Alabama areas.
Do you have names of siblings etc. of John? If a starting date is found they may be traced through the census records after 1850 when all members of household are listed.

1891 England Census

Name: John Tew
Spouse: Emma
Birth: abt 1825 - city, Warwickshire, England
Residence: 1891 - township, city, Warwickshire, England

Hi! We are the Tew's from Mississippi. Our ancestors are from England. We're related to Thomas Tew, a pirate from England in the 1600s, that came to America. Are you related to him too?

Thomas Tew came to Rhode Island from Maidford, Northamptonshire, England in 1640 where he started his family. so perhaps there is some relation.

Surnames: Tew, Buckingham, Stokes
Hello,

I have a great grandmother, Winifred Tew who was born in Buckingham, England on 10/31/1888. I am a bit confused by the details as I am told her fathers name was Frederick Buckingham and her mother's name was Annise Stokes. Winifred Tew traveled to Canada at some point where she married a George Buckingham and had two daughters before moving to Washington during the 1920's. Could this possibly be of any relations to the Tew family line you are looking for.

I do wonder if Frederick Buckingham could have possibly been a step father since my great grandmother's reason for moving to Canada was to take care of siblings. I have also heard that she came to Canada with Geroge, I am unclear as to where and when they married.

Please let me know, this is a gab in our family tree. Thank you.

Hi Barrie,
My Mother-in-Law's hairdresser is a decedent of a Warwickshire branch of the Tew family. They are members of the LDS church and have information on their family history. I could try to put you in touch if you like.
