The Welland Valley


The map shows many of the places mentioned in the story of the 19th century Tansley family. The three counties meet in the middle of the upper third of the map: Northamptonshire lying to the south of the River Welland; Leicestershire and Rutland to the the north. The Ire Brook marks the boundary between the latter two. The close proximity of villages in different counties can be appreciated by reference to Gretton (Northamptonshire), Great Easton (Leicestershire) and Caldecott (Rutland)

A suggested relationship between the Tansleys and the Bulls
Tree chart

The 1861 census shows sisters Martha and Caroline Tansley in service at the Parsonage House of St John the Baptist Church, Corby. The curate was Thomas Bull. The girls' grandmother was born Elizabeth Bull in Cottingham. Although Thomas' full ancestry is not known for certain, the repetition of names and dates between the generations and the close proximity of Cottingham to the places where Thomas served is surely more than a coincidence
