From Devon to Chelsea

This client had already together with other family members gathered together considerable information regarding her father's paternal family, but little was known about his maternal line. It was believed that this was the result of a family rift caused by differences in religious observance. The project was aided considerably in that the family name was unusual - Tillman.


The brief included details about the Emmett family tailoring business on the Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, and the estranged (Tillman) family living in Chelsea during the nineteenth century.


From this information we were able to find birth, marriage and death records and uncovered an extensive family network.
