Tilt family, Worcestershire - Connection to Oliver Cromwell?
Here is an article which appeared in the "NOTES AND QUERIES


January - June, 1862

Bell & Daldy, 186, Fleet Street, London

Pages 52/53

Tilt Family. - The name of Tilt is a very rare one in England; one branch from Brighton is represented by Dr Tilt; another, and between which and the former no connexion is yet traced, came from Worcestershire, and is now extinct in the male line by the death of Charles Tilt - the millionaire. I am anxious, for genealogical purposes, to know from which locality, in Worcestershire, the latter branch is derived, and whether anything is known of its early history ? Also the arms borne by it, which (if I recollect aright) were figured on the family carriage - as "A chevron between three roundels; crest, a dolphin," - although the tinctures are unknown to me. It may not be generally known that this family co-represents a junior branch of the Protector`s house. One of the descendants of the latter kept a shop in Skinner Street, Holborn; he died leaving one or more daughters, from the issue of which the connection is traced. I should be glad to know the links, and whether the Tilt family directly married a Cromwell; or whether it was the heiress of her descendant who brought the representation to it. Several relics of Oliver Cromwell are in the possession of the descendant of a daughter of the Tilts; the most notable of which is a massive gold ring, with his arms, initials, and date, engraved on it.

Can anyone shed any further light on this? Any info gratefully accepted.
