USA01 - Descendants of George Hully born at Ashton under Lyne, Lancashire in 1774
This family tree shows the descendants of George and Hannah Hulley, born 1774 in Ashton under Lyne, Lancashire, who emigrated to America in the brigantine "Benjamin Morgan" in 1832 with their six sons. Four years later they flat-boated down the Ohio River to start a new life in the then pioneer Switzerland County, Indiana.
This family tree has been constructed almost entirely from information passed to me by the late Robert Hulley Velte, who edited a book previously written by his ancestor William C. Hulley in 1963-64 entitled "A History of the Hulley Family from 1490 to 1963". I am most grateful to Robert for the above information and wish to formally record my thanks to him. Chapter 1 of the above book titled 'The Early History' covering the period 1490 to 1830 refers to the Hulley family of Macclesfield, Cheshire. This family has no direct connection with that of Ashton under Lyne (proved by DNA) and is fully covered in my UPDATED booklet "The History and Hulley Families of The One House" with a pedigree starting at 1488.
Note: The ancestors of George Hully baptised 14 August 1774 are found on Lancs01 - Descendants of William Hulley who was born c1555 in the Lancashire Family Trees.
Kathy has drawn my attention to two errors in this Tree. Grace Hulley b. 1797 married Abraham Walker at St Chad's church, Saddleworth in 1820, and her younger sister Sarah Hulley b 1804 married James Shepley at the same church in 1828. The two sisters had previously been allocated to the other one's spouse!
I would like to welcome Bill Bunce of the USA who is a descendant of Theresa Agnes Bunce who married William C. Hulley in 1882. Bill is also researching his Bunce family history, particularly in Ireland.
Marlene has kindly supplied US census records from 1870 to 1930 and SSDI records for many of the persons in this tree. Full details are shown in the Notes for each one.
