Many thanks to Phil Tunaley who supplied these fantastic photographs of
Derby based on the addresses recorded on census forms. If you'd
be interested in supplying something similar for Nottingham, Leicester,
Manchester, Birmingham, Wymondham, London or any of the other places on
the census pages do drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Warner Street where Frank Tunaley (b.1852) was living at No.35 in
The house was demolished to make way for the flats at the far end of
the street but was probably similar to those in the foreground which
start at No.45
No.32 Swinburne Street where Sarah Tunaley (b.1832) was living with her
sister Elizabeth Carney in1901.
These photos show Royal Oak House (the half-timered building) which is
now Derby Registry Office. It was originally a pub and is one of
a number of properties listed in the wills of Thomas Tunaley
(b.1772) and Henry Tunaley (b.1800). The photograph on the left
is taken from Tenant Street where Thomas was living in 1841.
A picture of Shaftesbury Street which is now an industrial
estate. In 1901 Henry Tunaley (b.1869) was living at No.82 and
his daughter Hilda Tunaley (b.1882) was living at No.72.
Oxford Street which now forms part of the main entrance to the
Derbyshire Royal Infirmary. The one remaining house is the corner
shop shown on the right (with street sign). In 1901 Edward
Tunaley (b.1844) lived at No.55 and John Tunaley (b.1873) lived at
No.54. In 1881 Edward's father Samuel (b.1812) was living at
No.55 with his daughter Jane Antill and her husband William.
Samuel is the Great Great Grandfather of Phil Tunaley who took these
photographs. The houses on Oxford Street are probably some of the
five left to Samuel in his brother Henry's will.
The next two photographs were sent to me by Jean Parkinson whose Great
Grand Aunt Charlotte Dorothea Kembal married Robert James Tunaley in
1828. The wedding took place in West Stow in Suffolk.
This is Market Street in Wymondham where Robert and Charlotte were
living in 1841.
This is No.23 Cromwell Grove in Shepherds Bush, London.
Charlotte was living here in 1881 with her daughter Ellen
Constantia Louisa Tunaley and Ellen's husband Theodore Drew.
Jean's Great Grandparents William Hempson Denham and Harriet Elizabeth
Kemball later lived in the same house.
