The Recent Descendants of Jonathan Tyers the elder

The last male descendant of Jonathan Tyers the elder was his son, Jonathan the younger, so, even though other Tyers families exist around the UK, no members of the Vauxhall Tyers family exist today with that name, although it did have a continued currency as a second forename. In the 19th century, the Vauxhall Trust Estates were owned by Margaret Tyers [Barrett] Weller Poley (see family tree). She left the property in trust to William Slade of Walcot Lodge, Hastings and to Robert H. Slade, (b.1871) and Edith Marion Slade (b.1876), the son and daughter of Robert and Lydia Slade of 14 Springfield, Leeds, with much of the fortune (around £30,000) going to various church charities. Edith Marion Slade was, in 1911, living in Battle, Sussex. A copy of Margaret Tyers Weller Poley's will is in the Suffolk Records Office, Bury St Edmunds, HA536/RX3-34.

There may still be members of the Wood, Barrett and Burgess families with direct links to Vauxhall Gardens.
