Tunaley Family History

Welcome to what as far as I know is the only place on the web at the moment that deals with the origins of the Tunaley family.  If you are a Tunaley you probably know that it's a fairly unusual name but did you realise that out of the 46million names on the UK electoral roll only 100 are Tunaley!  I'm hoping that some of you are as interested in your ancestors as I am and will be willing to share what you know to help put together a picture of the worldwide Tunaley family.

So who am I ?

Marcus TunaleyMy name is Marcus Tunaley and I near the City of Bath in the South West of England.  I'm 42 years old and work as a consultant specialising in the procurement of large construction contracts for central and local government.  My branch of the Tunaley family live in and around the town of Huddersfield in West Yorkshire where my Great Great Grandfather Alfred Tunaley moved from Derby around 1860.  Alfreds Great Grandfather Thomas was born around 1740 and is as far back as I have traced my direct ancestors so far.
