A search of the graveyard at St Giles church Great Longstone has revealed 17 Hulley burials in 5 graves. The most interesting is for Jonathan Hulley who died in 1835 aged 84, being born in c1751. This is in the middle of a period when the registers of St Giles are missing and it is impossible to confirm his parents. A check of Bishops Transcripts - held at Lichfield Record Office - will be made to see if the missing period is covered. His wife Agnes (nee Anthony died 1836 aged 77), daughters Sarah (died 1874 aged 87) and Elizabeth (died 1879 aged 78) are also buried with Jonathan.
