Thanks Hilary! Emma is actually a Mayflower descendant, a fact that she likely never knew!! However, her father, Joseph Baber Tuggey was born in Somerset in 1847. He emigrated with his mother and 2 siblings in 1851. His father, Thomas, probably emigrated sometime prior to that but I've never found a ship's manifest with him listed. There'a a Frederick Tuggey who also settle in Pittsfield, Massachusetts where Thomas settled. They are likely cousins, but I've also not been able to connect them.
Thomas Tuggey's father was William. I have some documents on William's entry into the Royal Navy in 1811. Wasn't there a war brewing around that time!?!?!?
