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
