Gail, thanks for your reply. My email is cosmos@gci.net. The Tildens are the first of my wife's family I've been able to trace back to old England. I look forward to seeing where it leads. Thanks, Randy.

Hello Randy - Guess your wife and I are cousins, eh? I have a John Tilden as father of Richard but that's as far as I have researched on that family line. What an interesting family! Guess I should start working on that line again. Are you filled in up to Richard? Let me know if I can help. Betty Berentson

Gail,

My name is Randy Kline. My wife is related to the Tilden family through William Hatch and Anne Tilden. I have the Tildens traced fairly well back through Richard (or John) and Joane Leigh but am somewhat confused by conflicting names before that. If you could straighten me out I would appreciate it.

My thanks for any help you can give,

Randy Kline

Hi cuzzin! How lucky you are to be where it all started. I'm sure I cannot help you as my Tilden intermarried with my Whittemore family way back in early Massachusetts history and they went on from there.
Cheers, Carolyn

Thanks, Gail, that is a most generous offer! I am going to pass on it, though. Tilden is a collateral line of mine as they married into my Whittemore line once they came to America. Sure is great to know some folks are having wonderful luck in their research. Thanks, anyway. Carolyn Dietz

Hi there. Since your message was posted some time ago you may already have this information. I, too, descend from Nathaniel Tilden.

She was b 1548 & d 13 May 1593, Tenterden. Thomas' father is Richard Tilden b 15 Oct 1520, Benenden, Kent, ENG; d 15 May 1566, Tenterden. He married Elizabeth Glover in Mar 1540, in Benenden. Elizabeth b 1515; d 1585. Richard Tilden is named for his father, Richard TYLDEN who was b 1475 in Benenden; d 1552 also in Benenden; mar Joan Leigh who was b 1477 and d 1557, both in Benenden. I welcome all information that doesn't agree with this but I do hope this helps. Thanks.

I am his descendant, He married Lydia Hucksteppe and had 12 children before moving to Scituate, Massachusetts in 1634. He died there in 1641 and is buried in The Men of Kent Cemetery. Would you like me to end you his descendancy chart? If so, I'll need your email address. And would you please send me what you have on Nathaniel? I'd appreciate it!

Nathaniel Tilden left the Tenterden area to move to America and settle Scituate, Massachusetts. Does anyone know anything about the Tilden family?
