I briefly wrote about the mysterious Sedeny Tilley, who is the second wife of my ancestor Samuel4 (William3-2 George1) Wallis. In addition to their marriage record, I discovered this deed. On 1 January 1793, Sidna Wallace of Barrington widow, for 60 pounds sold to Thomas Glass of Nottingham, land in Barrington, 35 acres 1/2 lot formerly owned by Samuel Tilley of Barrington. She signed by mark as "Sibna Wallace". [rec. 2 May 1793, Strafford Co. Deeds 15:518]. So the three times her name appears in records it is Sedeny, Sidna or Sibna. I'm guessing this is a variant of Sabena.
She is the presumed daughter of Samuel and Jane (---) Tilley who were living in Durham, N.H. There is only one deed (no grantee at all) for this man: Samuel Tilley of Durham, collier, dated 7 June 1738 where he sells his proprietors share of Canterbury to a Prendergast of Portsmouth. His wife Jane releases dower on the deed. [NHPD 24:526]. Somewhere there is a Tilley family where the son Samuel is given the genealogists death knell of "no further records." Well, I know where he went. Or he is a 18th century immigrant through Portsmouth. All we can say is that out of nowhere there is this Tilley family in Strafford County, N.H.
