kjthistory: (Poole)

There are, and have been, many John Tilseds around Wimborne and Poole. This narrative concerns the man who in his will referred to himself as "formerly of Shoe Cove near Cape John in the Island of Newfoundland Planter but now of Wimborne Minster in the County of Dorset Gentleman".

Creating this narrative has involved pulling together what originally seemed like a number of different "lives". The narrative is complex enough without going into the details of how the research was done and conclusions reached, so various essays working through the reasoning will be posted separately.

The full narrative will be posted soon; in the meantime (for googling purposes!), here is a selected list of some of the names which appear in the life story of this John Tilsed:
