The Toulmin Family of Lancashire, England

Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

   The American family and English origins of the immigrant Thomas Tolman/Touleman (1608-1690) are detailed in the accompanying essay ‘Thomas Tolman (1608-1690) of Dorchester, Massachusetts’. Also presented in that essay is some DNA evidence that his origin is Lancashire, England. The purpose of this essay is to present additional DNA evidence of the Lancashire family and to expand the understanding of the Lancashire families and collateral lines.

The English Toulmin Family

   There are four known compiled sources describing the English Toulmin family:

   (1) The ‘Toulmin Pedigree’[simple_tooltip content=’31. ‘Toulmin pedigree: southern branches A and B’, FHL British film 994003 item 3 1584(accessed 26 Jun 2019) hereafter Sherwood.’]31[/simple_tooltip] exists at the Family History Library (FHL) as a film copy of a typewritten manuscript (called the Sherwood Collection). George F. T. Sherwood of the Society of Genealogists has many publications (1867-1910) and has done research on the Toulmin family of England. The portion of the pedigree that exists in the FHL is incomplete (describes abt 200 individuals); it deals mostly with the ‘southern Toulmin family’ (mostly around London) and goes back to an Abraham Toulmin, b. 1580 of Somerset and London; hereafter Sherwood. Although the pedigree is unsourced, much credence must be given to it considering the distinguished genealogist author and the incredible detail in the manuscript (constructed mainly from wills).

   (2) Burke’s Peerage,[simple_tooltip content=’32. Burke, John Bernard, Sir 17th ed. Burke’s genealogical and heraldic history of the landed gentry: including American families with British ancestry (London, England: Burke’s peerage, 1939) p. 2530-2531; hereafter Burke.’]32[/simple_tooltip] 1939 has two detailed pages on the Toulmins and their English ancestry, no sources; hereafter Burke.

   (3) Toulmin, George Humphrey, ‘A Catalogue of Toulmins’, Part 1 (London family) and Part 2 (Preston and the North families), a 1990 ms[simple_tooltip content=’33. Toulmin, George Humphrey, ‘A Catalogue of Toulmins’ Part 1 (London family) and Part 2 (Preston and the North families), 1990 ms; hereafter Toulmin.’]33[/simple_tooltip] at The Society of Genealogists/National Family History Centre (www.sog.org.uk), excellently sourced; hereafter Toulmin. Toulmin was aware of the Sherwood Collection at the FHL (he referred to it as ME90). One of Toulmin’s favorite sources for the early Toulmins are copies of the letters of Evelyn Toulman Flood, a genealogist who wrote abt 1936.

   (4) Glade, Loa Don Hofhine Thomas Touleman (1608): Progenitor of the Tolman Family in America (Murray, UT: Family Heritage Publishers, 2005) pp. 17-25; hereafter Glade.[simple_tooltip content=’34. Glade.’]34[/simple_tooltip]

   The first three sources describe the same ancestry and are generally in agreement except in a few circumstances that will be identified. Perusal of this material shows that there are two branches of the Toulmin family: a London branch and a Lancashire branch. The London branch is a prominent, educated and affluent English family Toulmin (many wills, many large dowers, many clergy, authors, barristers, and surgeons). The Lancashire branch is mostly farmers and tradesmen.

   The five living match individuals of this essay that share at-DNA are descended from both the London branch and the Lancashire branch of the Toulmin family (3 and 2, respectively), proving for the first time that the two branches have a common ancestor.

at-DNA

   A search for ‘toulmin’ of at-DNA matches for three known descendants of Thomas Tolman b. 1608 of Dorchester, Massachusetts [RLT: author, GLT: brother of author, ETS: paternal aunt] produced several matches to the Lancashire Tolman/Toulmin family, shown in Cluster 1 below.

   (1) ‘J. S.’[simple_tooltip content=’35. ‘Schlittler Family Tree’, owner kephrm, www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/112764835; the tree only goes back to Lucinda Jane Toulmin (accessed 26 Jun 2019).’]35[/simple_tooltip] is a 5th great-granddau of Lucinda Jane (Toulmin) Garrard, born 1790 of Kentucky. This line[simple_tooltip content=’36. ‘Wood Family Tree’, owner cedarlake648, www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/26394935; lots of sources (accessed 26 Jun 2019) hereafter Wood Family Tree.’]36[/simple_tooltip] has been traced back several additional generations to an Abraham Toulmin (born 1630, London) son of Thomas Toulmin (no source); he is proposed to have married Mary Hughes, also born 1630.[simple_tooltip content=’37. Wood Family Tree is the only one of any of the surveyed Toulmin sources to claim the father of Abraham Toulmin I (b. 1630) was Thomas Toulmin. It is also the only source to claim Abraham II’s (b. 1630) wife was Mary Hughes (all w/o historical sources). Sherwood has Mary Hughes married to William Toulmin, brother of Abraham III (also no source cited).’]37[/simple_tooltip] This pedigree is examined in more detail below (see Generation 5, London Branch). A working hypothesis is that the common ancestor with the author is the unknown father of William Toulmin of Lancashire, father of Issabel (b. 1588).

   (2) ‘S. D.’,[simple_tooltip content=’38. ‘Donaldson Family Tree’, owner Donaldson92, www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/33718009, some sources (accessed 26 Jun 2019).’]38[/simple_tooltip] Steve Donaldson of Toronto, a presumable 9th cousin of the author also with antecedents in Lancashire. He is a 2nd great-grandson of Frances Toulmin (1838-1925), dau of John Toulmin and Priscilla (Axon) Toulmin of Liverpool. Our common ancestor would likely also be William Toulmin, father of Issabel Toulmin (b. 1588). This pedigree is examined in more detail below (see Generation 8, Lancashire Branch). ‘S. D.’ has another 34 at-DNA matches to ‘toulmin’ ancestors besides this author! Amazing.

   (3) ‘Anna Rudd’[simple_tooltip content=’39. ‘Rudd Family Tree’, owner Anna Rudd, www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/161736794, no sources (accessed 26 Jun 2019).’]39[/simple_tooltip] is a 6th great-granddau of Elizabeth (Toulmin) Barker, dau of Abraham Toulmin of London, born 1704. A working hypothesis is that the common ancestor with the author is the unknown father of William Toulmin of Lancashire, father of Issabel (b. 1588). This pedigree is examined in more detail below (see Generation 5, London Branch).

   (4) ‘Cheryl Taylor’[simple_tooltip content=’40. ‘Cheryl Taylor Family Tree’, owner Cheryl Taylor, www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/1191516473 (accessed 26 Jun 2019) hereafter CherylTaylor Tree.’]40[/simple_tooltip] is a 4th great-granddau of Ann (Toulmin) Barclay of London, born 1740. A working hypothesis is that the common ancestor with the author is the unknown father of William Toulmin of Lancashire, father of Issabel (b. 1588). This pedigree is examined in more detail below (see Generation 5, London Branch).

   (5) ‘STUART HIGGS’[simple_tooltip content=’41. ‘Higgs Family Tree’, owner STUART HIGGS, www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/119176513, good sources (accessed 24 Apr 2020).’]41[/simple_tooltip] is a 6th great-grandson of Thomas Toulmin of Halton Parish, Lancashire, b. 1692. A working hypothesis is that the common ancestor with the author is the unknown father of William Toulmin of Lancashire, father of Issabel (b. 1588). This pedigree is examined in more detail below (see Generation 6, Lancaster Branch).

   As a result of this at-DNA evidence that the Wm Towlming (b. abt 1562) line and the Abraham Toulmin (b. abt 1580) line are connected by a common ancestor, we are forced to posit (Occam’s razor)[simple_tooltip content=’42. Occam’s Razor: the simplest solution (involving the fewest assumptions) is the best.’]42[/simple_tooltip] that at the latest these two are brothers born to a Towlming/Toulmin father (b. 1540).

Early Toulmins

   Cussans[simple_tooltip content=’43. Cussans, John Edward History of Hertfordshire, Vol. 3, Part 16: Hundred of Cashio (London: Chatto and Windus, 1881) pp.256-258; cited circuitously in Toulmin.’]43[/simple_tooltip] indicates a strong family tradition that the family is French and of Huguenot origin. The Toulmin family is suggested to have fled France to Holland at the time of the St. Bartholomew Massacre (23 Aug 1572). When Philip II of Spain began persecution of protestants in the Netherlands they fled to England settling in Preston, Lancashire.[simple_tooltip content=’44. Toulmin, Part 1, page 13 and Part 2, page 9 (expanded sources are recounted).’]44[/simple_tooltip]

   Because we are dealing with the connections of a 1635 immigrant to the Massachusetts Bay Colony (Thomas Touleman) to English collaterals, the events we are concerned about are already in the 16th century. Records are not good enough that the key connections will likely ever be proven. Lancaster Parish Records began in the late 16th century, but that is an exception. Key records in Bolton-le-Sands parish didn’t begin until the mid-17th century (1655). Add to that the fact that Toulmins over the centuries were noted dissenters; therefore many consciously avoided Church of England baptisms. Death dates for these people are much more common but unfortunately do not indicate how old the individual was at death. Primary records in general are good after mid-1700’s but very spotty and poor before that time.

Figure 2. A Toulmin Pedigree from Toulmin, Part 1, page 2.

   The three branches of the Toulmin family shown in Figure 2 are really two branches: the far left is the London branch and the middle and right-hand branches are Lancashire families. Bolton-le-Sands is a village and parish 4 miles due north[simple_tooltip content=’45.

British History Online, ‘Townships: Bolton-le-Sands’; online at www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/lancs/vol8/pp132-136.’]46[/simple_tooltip] is manor just north of the village of Bolton-le-Sands. Presumably Richard Toulmin (b. 1607) and his family were tenants on this manor.

   In the summary below the four known 16th century Toulmins are posed as brothers, but Robert or Richard could easily have been the ‘unknown’ father of William and Abraham. The ancestors of all four living ‘cousins’ (shared DNA) are shown in the Genealogical Summaries 2 & 3. It has been necessary to construct speculative lineages in the time period 1600-1655 (the start of the Bolton parish registers). There are already speculative lineages available from both Glade and Toulmin; where I have had to choose between them I have chosen Toulmin as his reconstructions seemed more consistent, viz. Richard Toulmin was clearly a tenant at the Manor of Bolton Holmes and children ‘of Bolton Holmes’ have therefore been associated with Richard (see Figure 2).

Genealogical Summary 2: The Lancashire Branch of the Toulmin Families

   Note: The first three generations are highly speculative in many places as few records are available; they match the speculations found in Toulmin.

Generation 1

   1. unknown Toulmin/Towlming was born abt 1540 of Preston, Lancashire, England. He may have been born in France.

   Mr. and Mrs. Towlming/Toulmin had perhaps four children.

   + 2 i. WILLIAM TOWLMING born abt 1562 of Lancashire, England.

   + 3 ii. RICHARD TOULMIN born abt 1570 of Bolton Holmes, Lancashire, England. He died 1607 at Lancashire.

   + 4 iii. ROBERT TOULMIN born abt 1570 of Bolton-le-Sands, Lancashire, England. He married Alice ____. Their son Richard died in 1623 at Bolton-le-Sands.

     5 iv. ABRAHAM TOULMIN (I) born abt 1580 of Somerset, England.

   (cf. Genealogical Summary 3. The London Branch of the Toulman Families)

Generation 2

   2. William Towlming was born[simple_tooltip content=’47.

   William and Elizabeth Towlming had children.[simple_tooltip content=’49. Glade, p. 18; eight children.’]49[/simple_tooltip],[simple_tooltip content=’50. Glade, p. 10, cites the will of John Tollmyne of Yealand Conyers (chapelry in Warton) where he mentioned his brother Thomas and his bro-in-law George Rigge. Therefore Glade has placed ‘Thomas of Bolton Holmes’ in this family group when it is more likely that he is referring to his nephew Thomas of Massachusetts. ‘Thomas of Bolton Holmes’ is more likely to be a son of Richard Toulmin of Bolton Holmes. This is also consistent with Toulmin, part 1, p. 2. ‘]50[/simple_tooltip]

50. Glade, p. 10, cites the will of John Tollmyne of Yealand Conyers (chapelry in Warton) where he mentioned his brother Thomas and his bro-in-law George Rigge. Therefore Glade has placed ‘Thomas of Bolton Holmes’ in this family group when it is more likely that he is referring to his nephew Thomas of Massachusetts. ‘Thomas of Bolton Holmes’ is more likely to be a son of Richard Toulmin of Bolton Holmes. This is also consistent with Toulmin, part 1, p. 2.

163. A search of the available records for the birth of William Toulman of Liverpool revealed two contenders both born about 1780, but one was easily eliminated. William Toulman b. 1781, son of John and Milcah Pooler Toulmin (Toulmin, Part 2, pages 9 and 12) was well characterized as a surgeon and Quaker of Preston, presumably never married—his will left everything to nieces and nephews.

179. Burke

180. Toulmin, Part 1, p. 13-14 and sources cited therein.

181. Sherwood, Burke; there are also a number of Pedigree Resource files (4) mentioning Abraham Toulmin that contain all sorts of fanciful descendencies that are not substantiated (except loosely by IGI w/o sources) and do not agree with any of the major compiled sources—these have been ignored.

182. Sherwood, Burke and Toulmin. Burke/Sherwood have ____ Hughes married to William (no sources), but Toulmin (Part 1, page 14-15) rebuts this effectively saying Burke reversed the two brothers. Since Toulmin is sourced, he wins the argument. He suggests Abraham may not be descended from Abraham of Chard at all, but may be a Lancashire Toulmin, b. 1675 at Bolton.

183. Toulmin (sourced), not in Sherwood or Burke.

184. London England Wills and Probate, 1507-1858, Abraham Toulmin, Stepney Parish, Middlesex, probated 15 Nov 1716; online at Ancestry.com (accessed 9 Jul 2019). The will indicates the testator had children under 21 leaving some doubt that there was an Abraham b. abt 1630 (Toulmin, Part 1, page 14).

185. Sherwood and Burke have attributed the 1716 Will to Abraham (II), but Toulmin notes that the will mentions minor children under 21 so he attributes the will to Abraham III.
