This Family Tree covers the Ulley family who were living in the Mexbrough district during the latter part of the 18th century and all of the 19th century. Most of the menfolk were employed in the pottery trade, especially earthenware. Some were stone masons, glass blowers, brick makers and nail makers, and others were general labourers. In 1851 some families branched out to Sheffield, Hull and Swinton, Yorks. In 1871 another branch was living in Chesterfield, Derbyshire and continued there and in Whittington, Derbyshire to the end of the century. 1881 showed family branches living in Burslem, Staffordshire, and Hunslet and Attercliffe in Yorkshire. Although most of this family were initially named ULLEY, by the end of the 19th century this had gradually changed to HULLEY, with only a few families retaining their ancestor's surname into the 20th century.

A check of the Bury (Lancashire) Union Workhouse Admissions and Burials register has uncovered an entry relating to this Family Tree. Alfred Bradshaw Hully was born in the Workhouse on 19 Jan 1877 son of Harriet Hully (no father named). The only Harriet Hully living in the area at the time was Harriet Hulley (born Ully) born 1856 in Doncaster and working as an Attendant in Prestwich Lunatic Asylum in 1881, so Alfred Bradshaw Hully has been allocated as a child of Harriet in this FT. Unfortunately he died in Stockport in December quarter 1880.
A check of online 19th century newspapers has shown several news items relating to persons on this FT including the following: Thomas Ulley b.1812; John Ulley b.1815; Elizabeth Ulley nee Baley b.1817; Alfred Hulley b.1840; Henry Ulley b.1840; Arthur Ulley b.1841; George Hulley b.1848; Joseph Ulley b.1850;Cornelius Ulley b.1851; Herbert Ulley b.1854; Ambrose Hulley b.1861;Mrs Mary E.
