Ethel's life was mainly spent in India, with her two sons being sent to school in England. She returned to England upon Sydney's retirement from the East India Company.
It was Ethel's interest in her family history which prompted her to commission some work from a professional researcher to investigate the Tilliduff family. The researcher produced a very thorough and detailed report on the family back to Ethel's great-great grandfather Robert but did not manage to make the connection to the Scottish family. The research gave no sources and much of the information in the London records is no longer available, so I am very grateful to Ethel for commissioning the work and enabling me to trace the family further.
