My name is David Tull. Currently, I live in Fort Worth Texas. I am originally from West Tennessee (McNairy County). I am in the beginning stages of researching my Tull family. My immediate family (Tull) are from Chester and McNairy Counties. Supposedly, I had a great great uncle leave West Tennessee in the mid to late 1800's and move west. The last letter my family received from him was post marked around Dallas, Texas. Anyway, I am looking forward to the research that lies ahead.

I've managed (with help from Tamara Mazzei and others) to trace my line back to my great-great-great grandfather, William Tull, born 1760 in Selborne, Hampshire, who married Mary Wells in 1785. The ceremony was carried out by Gilbert White, author of "The Natural History of Selborne". Their daughter, Charlotte was apparently unmarried but with a son, George, who in turn had a son William, born in Horsham in 1876 and killed on the Somme in October 1916. The family had by then settled in Portsmouth and my father (Frederick) married Dora Beynon. She was born in Portsmouth but the Beynon family came from St Florence in Pembrokeshire and moved between Wales, England, Scotland and back to England because of my grandfather's work in the naval dockyards.

At the moment, I'm stuck in 1760 because the parish records are so patchy before then, especially for agricultural labourers who didn't own any property!

I'm always interested in seeing how these lines develop - Tull is not a common name in England, so it's quite likely that most are connected in some way, bearing in mind that the name first crops up in the 14th century, I believe. The central link for this name group seems to go back to the Hampshire / Berkshire area.

Hi Barbara,

I searched for Daniel B. Tull too, although he isn't my line either. Alas, I didn't find any more information than Margaret Ann did, but it's great that you may have Olive's last name. Perhaps that will give us all another clue.

Best wishes,

Looking for the parentage of Daniel Brown Tull born abut 1809 Cattaruaugus County, NY according to his pension file, from Mexican War. He married Olive Gray in Onieda County, NY (no marriage record found, only written in a Bible.) Believe she was a Quaker.
Went west, died in Minnesota. Several of his sons went to Geogia after 1880.
Comment by Alan Geoffrey Semmens on July 18, 2009 at 2:54pm
My Family Tull originated in Hampshire, England. My G.Uncle (Bob), his Father and His father before him were all in the Royal Navy. Any other Brit Tulls out there?
