In Reply to: E mail me "Tinkler's"! by Kellie Jo Tinkler of 128

Hi Kelly Joe, I have been researching my "Tinkler" line for about 3 years and can't get back beyond my great grandfather Joseph W. Tinkler, who arrived in Pennsylvannia in the early 1800's, was born in London, and moved to Texas in about 1842. He had several children, however, one son, and possibly a second son, respectfully,Thomas Benton Tinkler and Oran Andrews (Tinkler?) who I can't locate. I have a pretty complete history of his descendants (my kin). The two sons, likely Oran, family rumor says didn't like Texas and moved north or west and as far as my search goes, disappeared. The Tinkler name is derived from Tyncker, Tinker, Tinkler and Tincker and was of English origin. Apparently they were pots and pan makers in early England. Tinker's arrived on the Mayflower--the baby died in route; the mother shortly after arrival, and the father, within the 1st year in America. Robin Tinkler, was a midshipman on the Bounty, and returned to England with Capt. Bligh. Robin later became a Capt. in the British Navy. If you can find a link let me know. I hope this is helpful. regards Jim Tinkler, Houston, TX
