About Laurence Tyler

From RootsWeb WorldConnect:

Tylers and their families were in nearly every one of the original thirteen States at the time of the formation of the Union. Tylers can be found in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and in the Civil War.

In 1311 there was a Thomas Tyler who was a member of English Parliment.

In 1381 Watt Tyler, the blacksmith and English Rebel, marched on London to obtain Redress from the oppressive capitation tax imposed by Richard II.

There were several immigrant ancestors of the Tylers and therefore numerous early branches of Tylers in America.

Lists of emigrants to America between 1600 and 1700 lists several Tylers that sailed from England. Through my research I have found a story that Henry Tyler came to America with two brothers. The two brothers that came with Henry are not proven but we do have evidence that Henry, born John Henry, was the brother of Job Tyler. We do have an extract from the will of Lawrence Tyler naming his children as: John, Job, Moses, Rebecca, and Mary. No other actual evidence of blood relation has been found at this time but the search is continuing into England and hopefully some will be found. Taking in account the three earliest Tylers that came to America around the same time and the historians recording that three borthers came to America, we conclude the following: Upon Landing in America they agreed to go their separate ways and therefore, John Henry stayed and settled in Virginia, Job went on to Massachusetts and the third brother, Robert settled in Maryland. However, a William Tyler took the "Oath of Fidellitie" in New Haven in 1657, and his descendants are known as "The Wallingford Line." And we have found a Conneticutt line of Tylers who began with a RogerTyler. These family histories will be included at the end of the book, in section II, until a direct blood line can be proven.

All information we have found on the Tylers is printed in this history but the main interest and most complete line is that of HENRY TYLER of Virginia, who married Anne Orchard and had three sons. His son Henry is the line of the 10th president of the USA and his son John Tyler married and then moved to NC on the border of SC and his family is known as "The Southern Tylers". The third son of Henry was Daniel who was kidnapped as a child and never heard from again. Therefore this Tyler family history is dominated by the Henry Tyler line and his two sons HENRY and JOHN.

You will see that the descendants are easy to follow with Henry staying in Virginia and John's line in North Carolina until the Revolutionary War. Land Grants were given to those who served in the war. Virginia gave the largest Land Grants in Kentucky granting hundreds of acres to entry level soldiers. Many Land Grants were given in Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri and Mississippi. The grandchildren of John Tyler split up into several of these states due to Land Grants and we have tracked them as best we could with the help of Tyler families from all over the U.S.
