About the study
Welcome to The Tuff One-name Study.
If you have any comments, contributions or questions, I would be glad to hear from you. (contact details given below).
The Tuff One-name Study has grown out of the efforts of several researchers each attempting to trace their own Tuff roots.
History of the name
JohnTuff. Vicar of Church of St. Mary, Lamberhurst, Kent in 1409.
Charles Tuff MP for Rochester between 1903 and 1906
Distribution of the name
All entries for the name Tuff from the General Register Office BMD Indexes for England and Wales from 1837 onwards have been uploaded onto the Guild web site and are available for searches.
All entries for the name Tuff in the IGI have been extracted
All wills and administrations in England and Wales have been extracted from the National Index between 1858 and 1904.
The census records for England and Wales are being examined to identify links between successive censuses for each Tuff family household. Currently, this work covers the period 1871 to 1901.
Pedigrees established by Tuff researchers so far reveal at least three independent ancestral roots in the 17th century (2 Kentish and one in Wiltshire). However, there are numerous references to as-yet isolated individuals in Parish Registers and other archives.
