  1. No baptismal record of Henry Tidey has yet been found, but the naming of his first male child 'William' after his father indicates this family grouping is probably correct. In addition son William had a son called Daniel that ties in with Henry's brother
  2. Other Henry Tidey's exist:
    1. Henry Tidy baptised 17/01/1726 in Crawley, Sussex, the son of George (family search)
  3. There were numerous differant spellings of "Tidey" in the parish registers eg Tidy,Tidye, Tide, Tieday, Tyddye, Tyde, Tydey, Tydie, Tydy, Tydye,Tyday, Tydee.
