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.
JohnTuff. Vicar of Church of St. Mary, Lamberhurst, Kent in 1409.
Charles Tuff MP for Rochester between 1903 and 1906
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 have been studied and links between successive census records for each Tuff family household identified. This work was described in the Journal of One-Name Studies (Vol 11, Issue 12, October - December 2014, Page 24 - "Turning Data into Families").
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, data extraction from UK Parish Registers and overseas archives continues and the resulting digital files may be viewed by contacting me or, after my decease, through The Guild.
