Thomas Tunaley Snr
m. Elizabeth Potter,
Thomas d. Derby, 10 September, 1848.
1841 census : Henry living at Tenant St., Derby with parents - listed as Dyer aged 40.
1851 census : Henry living at Tenant St., Derby as a bachelor and listed as "Head" with one servant- both parents having died.
It also seems from the 1851 census that, following Thomas Snr.'s death, Samuel and his large family moved into Tenant St, presumably living in another part of the large building. Samuel is also listed as "Head".
Following Thomas Snr.'s death, the Tunaley dyeing business began to fold. The author assumes Henry's property investment became his main activity.
