This tree covers the descendants of Richard Hully who died on 15 Jan 1702/03 at Bentham. They spread out from Bentham and lived in various locations in Westmorland, Cumberland, north west Yorkshire and north Lancashire including Kendal, Orton, Whitehaven, Clapham, Settle and Lancaster. Some descendants finished up in the Manchester area in 1881. A branch emigrated to Australia in the 1950s and another one went to Canada in the early 20th century. 272 persons have been added at the February 2005 update and I am most grateful for the information supplied by Nigel Hully of Western Australia for much of it.
Further to correspondence between Julie Van Den Bossche, who is a descendant of her paternal grandmother Sarah Ann Hully, I have expanded this FT to include the 1911 census entry of her Whitehaven ancestors. Julie's brother had a DNA test but because he and Julie are descended from a non-Hully female, their DNAs are not a match to those in my DNA project. Sarah Ann had a brother George Henry born 1906 but unfortunately he died in 1924, otherwise he - or his descendants - could have supplied a DNA test result, which would have been the first one for this group of Hulley/Hully families in England.
I note that Julie's paternal grandfather Moses Hully had 3 brothers John, Matthew and William, who had at least 4 male descendants, one of whose descendants could be a DNA match. I have also expanded this Family Tree to cover other 1911 census and 1939 Register entries.

A major error has been found and corrected. John Hully baptised at Bentham in 1802 and his descendants were double-entered by mistake.
The family of John Hulley b. 1828 at Blackburn has been discovered in a ship's manifest in 1867.

The family has been found in the 1871 and 1881 censuses of Canada, living at Ontario.
A further search of FreeBMD has uncovered 10 more previously unknown spouses. Where the entry shows more than one possible candidate, both are shown pending further research or a sight of the marriage certificate. If you are able to assist, please contact me.
