Many thanks for all that - very intersting. I wonder where William Sr (who m. Mary Duffy in Ireland) came from?
There were Tichbornes from the Hampshire branch who went to Ireland c.1600 but I have traced all the descendants I can find and the male line died out and their family seat, Beaulieu, has descended through the female line.
The occupations and Mary Duffy's death in a poor house suggests that these Tichbornes were of an economically redcued status. The main Tichborne line in the 19th Century was very wealthy - though after the loss of Roger at sea and the appearance of many claimants they were understandably very cautious.
There were also not many of them left: All of Roger's six male uncles died without male heir and his brother Alfred (11th Baronet) died aged 26 leaving a pregnant wife who gave birth to a son Henry (12th Bt, died at 44)). He only had one child a son, Joseph (13th Bt, died at 40). And he only had one child, a son, Anthony, (14th Bt died at 54 in 1968).
Anthony had three daughters and son who died in infancy. And he has nine grandchildren and, at the last count, ten great-gandchildren - none of whom bears the surname Tichborne of course.
I would be interested in seeing the picture signed R Tichborne. Apparently Roger T, the heir who was lost at sea in 1854, was quite an artist!
Any help gratefully received. Mail me direct or reply here!
