Thank you for this useful site. I am researching a group of families from the Isle of Ely and a member, named Wilson Johnson, married Elizabeth Bryan at Tilton on the Hill on 8 Oct 1811. More information about either party would be welcomed.

Thanks for all your hard work. I am researching the Leeson family based in Cold Newton and there seem to be lots of Tilton links, so will be paying a visit soon.

I visited the Cathedral and the Vicar in February 2004. Beautiful West Highland Terriers and nice tea, dear Sir!
Yes the Tiltons of Tilton left around 1600. I spent alot of time researching our history. The vicar gave me the names of a couple Tiltons who were still very energetic about our pre-American history in England. If you want to start, read Richardson's book "The Tilton Territory". That's a good start.

My gt,gt grandfather,William Bryan, married Ann Ireland at Tilton Church in 1824.He was a silk weaver.They moved to Lubbenham,where I believe there were Irelands.First daughter Elizabeth was born here. They then moved to Oakham where Ann was born in 1826,she was christened at Tilton. Wife Ann died about 1830 and William remarried and moved to Kettering.
I can find no information about the Ireland family and do not know the origins of William although I note that there were Bryans in Tilton.
Can anyone help please

Enjoyed looking at the site , found somethings really usefull.
I liked the pictures of the rose and crown as it was where my ancestors once lived , they were called springthorpes, i belive there had been at least 3 or 4 generations living in and around tilton.
sadly I couldn't look at the pictures of the gravestones ,says there is an error.
Im hoping to come to Tilton in the near future to have a look around and visit the roes and crown and the church yard myself.
If anyone reads this and springthorpe rings a bell or they know anything about the family it would be great to hear from you .
