I believe my ancestor Elizabeth LELLO born 1809 at Clunbury  to John & Ann LELLO later married Thomas TROW about 1834, possibly at Brampton Bryan or Pembridge. They had a son William TROW about 1839 from whom I can show fairly good evidence of decendancy.

There is conflicting evidence that Elizabeth might have been referred to as LELLO or LILWALL in 1834, but there was an order of filiation made which might account for the vagueness.

Any related information by other family researchers most welcome.

For the benefit of any readers who do not know, Brampton Bryan and Pembridge are both in Herefordshire, the former just south of the Shropshire village of Bucknall and the latter west of Leominster.

There have been other postings relating to LELLO either on this or the old Message Board. (I have no personal connection).

The following pasting from one of my narrative tables (for Tilsley) gives what may well be a missing link for at least some of the Lellos in Clun. But note that the Tilsleys were fairly well-to-do and the connection is unlikely to go straight to ag labs or similar, at least in the first or so generation down.

My tabs may be lost in pasting. If so, follow the numbering.

In the pasting attached to my last posting "LDL" - Llanidloes; "MMI" = Montgomeryshire Marriage compiled by Mr T E Gwynne, of Wellington; "WB" = "The Families of Montgomeryshire" by William Barker, of Shelton, Connecticut. I "have" the Tilsley line back to 1580s in Eccleshall, Staffs.

Hello,       My ancestors are Lello.    I have been able to go back to John Lello born c1810 in Clun area, he married an Elizabeth but I don't know her surname.   I have never been able to connect them with the big Lello tree in Ludlow although I am sure there must be a connection.     The largest tree with detail is run by a group in Tasmania, you can find them just by googling Lello.    I have also had contact from a Mr Arthur Lello who I believe is a member of SFHS but does not have a commputer, he is quite knowledgable about the family but he couldn't connect my John.       There are some Lello families which have similar names and it is so easy to mix them up.
