John Tidey were one of my 13th generation ancestors.

Key Dates:

John Tidey birth details are unknown, but he was possibly born in about 1490 possibly in Ockley, Surrey (derived as no birth details found). John was buried on 12th January 1539 in Ockley, Surrey

The Tidey Familes it is thought originated in the parishes of Ewhurst, Abinger, Ockley & Newdigate in Surrey and the adjacent parishes of Rudgwick, Warnham, Horsham & Rusper in Sussex. It covered an overall area about 15km by 10km. There was a lot of movement between the parishes but as they interlink it probably meant that the actual area involved was probably 10km by 5km.
