I've just been putting together the family tree for descendants of
Abraham Tetley (1811-1884) born at Ovenden.

Abraham appears in the 1841 census as Abraham Tettlow, but in subsequent
census he is recorded as Abraham Tetley. He worked in the weaving trades.

He first married Mary Sutcliffe in 1833, and after Mary died, he married
Lydia Broadbent (nee Horsfall), who already had three children from her
marriage to Thomas Broadbent.

His children with Mary were Hannah (1833-), Henry(1835-), Maria (1837-),
Alfred(1839-1884), Abraham(1842-1884), Sidney (1845-1858), Mary Jane
(1848-), John (1852-).

Of those children....
Hannah married Joseph Thorpe in 1859. Their children were Sarah Jane,
Norris, Clara, Emily, Annie, Dan.
Henry married Emma Wilson in 1859. Their children were Mary, Frederick
Wilson, Joseph, Ettie, Edith Emma.
Alfred married Harriet Walmsley in 1868. Their children were Charles
Henry, Emily, Louisa Sophia, Hellen, Florence.
Abraham married Emily Greenwood in 1865. Their children were Emma, Annie
Sidney died aged 13.
John married Sarah White in 1886. Their children were Harold, Abraham &
Edgar (who died in infancy).

There's a bit more information on the descendants of some of the above,
if anyone wants it. Some of the families that occur in subsequent
marriages are Denton, Horton, Hislop, King, Randall, Barugh, Lumb.
