SouthAfrica02 - Descendants of Arderne Hulley born 1836 at Rainow, Cheshire
This family tree is a continuation of the Cheshire 01 FT and commences with the 1836 birth in Cheshire of Arderne, son of Jasper Hulley of the One House in Rainow, near Macclesfield. This was a very long-founded family of landowners in Cheshire whose genealogy has been taken back to before 1488. The One House history has been traced back to c1166.
Arderne joined the Merchant Navy in c1853 and travelled around the world, according to family papers visiting such places as India, Australia, China and possibly Japan. Some time in the 1850-1860 period he settled in South Africa and eventually married in 1867 Fanny Cecilia Alberta Clarence, a daughter of the High Sheriff of Natal.

These entries consist of a general description of the contents, not the full details. If these are required then an application for copies has to be made to the appropriate NASA department. See their website at
