The Tilley family – Transported convicts from Lodsworth

Hi from Australia. I am “doing” the family tree and have a branch of “Tilley”  that came from Lodsworth. Quite a large family, that apparently were not quite on the correct side of the law.

Edward and John Tilley, both from Lodsworth, came out here in 1824 as convicts.  John went back later on and died in England.

I was wondering  about the family then. I understand there was  another family related also from Lodsworth –  “Boxall”.

I look forward to hearing from you anything about village life, etc.

Thank You Very Much

One thought on “The Tilley family – Transported convicts from Lodsworth”

  1. I have been looking at this family for several years as I believe William Tilley, another son of John Tilley and Charlotte (Boxall), is one of my ancestors. He too was transported to Van Diemen’s Land and died there in 1831. I have collected as much documentation as I can. He married a Lydia Smith, and they both found themselves at the Essex assizes charged with larceny! In 1822 William was sentenced to death for horse stealing, but was subsequently transported on the ship Morley.
