  • Notes 
    • - William Tyrrell was born Jan. 31, 1796, Drayton, Berkshire, England, and christened Aug. 27, 1797. His parents were members of the Phillimore Ecclesiastical Parish: John and Mary Tyrrell.

      - William "Tyrnoell" married Sept, 28, 1818 at Sutton Courtenay, Berkshire, England, to Fanny Webb. She died about 1826 in England, shortly after the birth of his third son Joseph. He remarried to Sarah about 1828 and in 1833 left with his wife, 3-year-old daughter Martha, and sons John, George, Joseph, and baby WIlliam, for Canada. There is no record of the family arriving at any U.S. port including Ellis Island. They must have arrived in Canada, and ended up at Cornwall, Stormont County, across the St. Lawrence from Massena, NY. A year later in 1834, William's wife gave birth to their second child, Matilda/Marinda.

      - A DNA relationship to Gary Francisco Jr., shows he descends from Sarah Turner/William Tyrrell (1796-1848) as does Ted Como. So Sarah/William are confirmed as the parents of Marinda and her brother William Jr., from whom Gary descends.

      - The only record I can find of a marriage after about 1826 when Fanny died, and prior to mid January, 1830, when Sarah Tyrrell was impregnated with Martha, who was born Sept. 19, 1830, is that of William Tyrrell, widowed, and Sarah Brighton, married June 15, 1828, at Saxlingham, Thorpe, Norfolk, England. Another possibility is Sarah Arnold, which marriage occurred Oct 13, 1831 at Whitechapel, Middlesex, but after the birth of Martha. There are records of these other marriages of a William Tyrrell marrying a Sarah:
      - Sarah Hilyer, Sept. 11, 1830, Shalford, Surrey
      - Sarah Jarvis, Oct. 31, 1830, Norfolk
      - Sarah Jawes, Nov. 11, 1830, Wymondham
      - Sarah Howes, Dec. 29, 1830, Portsea
      - Sarah Arnold, Oct. 13, 1831, Married and resided at Whitechapel, Middlesex.
      - 1831: Church of England marriages and banns: William Tyrrell,widower, and Sarah Arnold, widow, bans of marriage published Sept. 11, 18 and 25, 1831. However, when they were married, the record states William, bachelor, and Mary, spinster, married Oct. 13, 1831, by D. Mathias Rector, at Saint Mary, Whitechapel, Middlesex.

      - Tyrrells buried in Stormont County, (all Cornwall, all Woodlawn Cemetery): G. Henry, son of George & Maudie; George E., husband of Maudie Upson; Guy, husband of May Green; Henry A., private; Mary V., wife of Joseph A. Sheney; Maudie (Upson); May (Green); Shirley May; W. A. (1916-1993.)

      - In 1850, Joseph and John are at Massena, St. Lawrence, NY while George is just across the river from them at Cornwall, Stormont, Ontario. Sister Martha is married to George Raymond and they are farming at Cornwall. By this time, it appears that William and his second wife have died, since neither can be found in either census.

      - In the U.S. 1850 census Joseph and John are at Massena, and in the Canadian 1851 census George is at Cornwall, Stormont, adjacent to Massena on the Canadian side of the river. No other Tyrrells are found in St. Lawrence County. In 1851, Stormont, Ontario, are William Tyrrell, 21 (1830) laborer; Matilda Tyrrel, 16 (1836), servant, and George and his family. DNA connections from descendants of Matilda/Marinda show that she is the sister of William, b. 1833.

      - In 1843 William and Sarah had their last child, daughter Sarah Jane, b. Sept. 7. And on Oct. 13, 1848, their three youngest daughters, Mary Ann, 10; Margaret, 7; and Sarah Jane, 5, were baptized at the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Cornwall by Rev. William J. Williams. Why were the children suddenly baptized? Perhaps one reason is that their parents have died and they're being baptized prior to being dispersed among relatives because there is no trace of either William or Sarah after 1843, or, of daughter Margaret after 1848 when she was baptised with her sisters. Perhaps they died of illness, or in a fire. Perhaps William died and Sarah remarried but why would they not keep the children?
      We also know that just two years later in 1850, Sarah Jane is found living in the U.S. with her uncle Joseph and that in 1861, she's back at Cornwall living with her sister Martha. Likewise, Mary Ann is not found in the 1850 U.S. census or 1851 Canada census and we don't know where she is until after she marries Joseph Fountain and shows up in the 1861 census. No trace is found of Margaret after her baptism.

      - "Commemorative Biographical Record of the Upper Wisconsin Counties of Waupaca..." George Tyrrell, a successful farmer and well-known citizen of Bear Creek township, Waupaca County, WI, was born Nov. 25, 1844 in Upper Canada, son of John and Mary LeGrue Tyrrell, the former of whom is a son of William and Fannie Webb Tyrrell.
      William Tyrrell came with his family from England in 1833 to Cornwall, Canada. Mrs. Fannie Webb Tyrrell died when her son John was but six years old (about 1826 in England), the mother of the three children - John, George and Joseph. William Tyrrell had one more son, William, by another marriage.
      John Tyrrell was born June 16, 1817 in Oxfordshire, England, and had but meager chances for an education, all his training being obtained at Sunday school. When 16 years of age (which is 1817, however, John was b. 1820) he came with his father to Canada, shortly afterward going to St. Lawrence County, NY for a time. He served three years, from 1840-1843, in the British army in Canada. On Aug. 20, 1840, he was married in Canada to Mary LeGrue who bore him 13 children... four, Adelaide, Mary Ann, Maria and Horace, died in infancy.
      When George Tyrrell was but 2 years old in 1846, Mr. and Mrs. Tyrrell relocated to St. Lawrence County, NY where Mr. Tyrrell farmed on rented land for about five years or until 1851, in which year he removed to Rockport, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and there learned the carpenter's trade. This he continued to follow during his residence in Ohio and in 1856 he came to Wisconsin, working at his trade in New London for two years, when he came to Bear Creek township, Waupaca County, where he purchased 40 acres for which he paid $150 cash in gold.
