This family tree starts with the birth of William Hooley in 1696. It is likely that he is a descendant of the One House family because the baptisms of his 8 children state that William lived in Tidderington from at least 1724 and this location had other Hulley names associated with it before this date. For example John Hulley who was baptised in 1590 at Macclesfield lived at Tiderington (sic) in 1628 and his first 3 children - John who died in 1622, Jasper baptised 1625 and John baptised 1630 - were all born at Tidderington. Jasper went on to succeed his father as heir of The One House, Rainow estate. The 584 persons who form this tree come mainly from the Adlington and Poynton areas, with later ones from Hurdsfield.
Ann White (again!) has listed the details of Mary Jane Hooley b.1869 in her activities from her marriage in 1898 to her death in Canada in 1933.
Anne White has provided more information on George Hooley born 1875 Manchester and his family. He emigrated to Canada with his family in 1910 and died there in 1954.
Further to an enquiry by Anne White, I have added more information to the entry of Thomas Hooley born 1857. He had been married 4 times (!!) but details of his marriage to Lucilla ...... between 1880 and 1891 have not been found. Similarly his marriage to Elizabeth Ann ..... between 03 Mar 1910 and 02 Mar 1911 have not been found. She is listed in the 1911 census as his married housekeeper, which is questionable. If anyone has any information relating to these 2 events, please let me have it.
Further to my request above, Anne White has researched the origins of Thomas Hooley's wives and has discovered that his second wife was called Lucilla Newton born 1864 and died 1891, and his fourth wife was Elizabeth Ann Hill born 1869. These have been added to this FT.

Anne White has researched the life of William Hooley born 1838 who married Anne Potts in 1868. They had 2 daughters in Cheshire before emigrating to Illinois in 1865 and 1867 respectively. A third daughter was born in Illinois in 1882.
The entry for John William Hooley born 1881 in Uttoxeter has been amended. He was baptised at St Peter's church Macclesfield in 1884 John William son of Jane Higginbotham, who later married Thomas Hooley in 1885 at Prestbury. My thanks to Anne White who queried the original entry.
My thanks go to Barbara Evans who has provided inportant information about Abraham Hooley b 1828 and his dependants who emigrated to North America in 1850. His son Abraham George is listed in the National Cyclopedia of American Biography and married Fanny Lucy, a daughter of Thomas H. Burridge, an inventor and engineer, of St. Louis, Mo.
The following persons shown on this FT have at least one entry from the Find My Past newspaper collection 1725-1901.

Rick Hooley has pointed out an error in this FT, concerning Mary Hooley (b.1743) duaghter of William. She was shown as marrying Samuel Hall in 1766, but the correct Mary who married Samuel is the one in Ches04 who was born in 1744 and died in 1820.
Andrew Chadwick has supplied information concerning the descendants of Holland Hooley, who died in suspicious circumstances in 1893. Holland had 4 daughters - Florence May (1880-1929), Charlotte (1882-1953), Alice (1884-1886) and Agnes 1887-1937) but no sons.
Two sources of recently published information have been searched for members of this family. The Cheshire Electoral Registers 1842-1900 (1,448 Hulley entries) are now on Find my Past and the Cheshire Tithe Apportionments 1814-1850 (200 Hulley entries) are shown on the Cheshire Archives and Local Studies website. There are 37 persons from this FT included on one or both of the above lists; full details are shown in their Notes.
Welcome to Karen Adams of Australia who is a descendant of William Hooley baptised at St Mary's church Bowdon on 20 Aug 1837. Karen has been researching the Australian end of her family tree and hopes to find the date when William came to the country. As a result of Karen's information I have been able to extend the family of William Hooley b. 1791 and Mary Ann Wood b.1799 and their son William b 1837 is related to Karen.
Barbara Evans has supplied some useful information about Abraham Hooley who was christened in 1787. She has found his death and burial at Macclesfield in September 1824, and details of his widow Mary's second marriage to William Hooley. Also she has passed to me details of the daughter Sarah Ann's baptism and death. All information has been added to each person's details and their Notes.
Following a review of this FT and discussions with Rick Hooley, I have amended it by moving Thomas Hooley b.1769 and all his 70 descendants from being a son of John Hooley b.1724, to being a son of his brother James b.1726. I had realised that Matthew Whalley Hooley b.1841 had been named after his grandfather Matthew Walle Hooley b.1778, who was a descendant of John Hooley b.1724 and not as previously shown, a descendant of James Hooley b.1726.
Further additions have been made to this FT - see the name index for details of changes.
I have discovered several descendants of James Hooley born 1726 and have added them to the FT. They include David b.1762, his son John b.1791, grandchildren Sarah b.1822 and Samuel b.1824, and Samuel's 4 children Thomas Clarke b.1850, John Henry b.1851, Mary b.1855 and Samuel b.1864.
A search of online newsapers has found news items relating to 3 members of this FT - Holland Hooley born 1858, John Hooley born 1861 and Samuel Hooley born 1853.
Information relating to Abraham Hooley b1797 contained in an Old Bailey court case dated 1838 has been added to his Notes.

Thanks to Darren Hooley, I have corrected an error in this FT. Darren has a death certificate for Hannah Hooley or Hulley born 1753, died 1849. I had previously shown a Matthew born 1760 as the ancestor of this line but Darren's research has proved the correct link.
