The modern era

Sir Nicolas ultimately left no descendants in the male line, though a branch of the Bosanquet family are his descendants and Reginald Bosanquet, the broadcaster for ITN, was his great great grandson. Members of the main branch of the English family descend from his brother, Thomas Tindal of Aylesbury, Clerk of the Peace for Buckinghamshire. His son, Acton Tindal, Lord of the Manor of Aylesbury, married Henrietta Euphemia Harrison, an eminent poet [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (2006)] and descendant of Francis Turner, one of the seven Bishops to defy James II and his Declaration of Indulgences, and of Sir Francis Windebank, Secretary of State to Charles I ["Burke's Landed Gentry" (1868) 'Harrison of Ramsey'] . Acton's son, Nicolas, married Elizabeth Carill-Worsley, heiress of Platt Hall near Manchester and the family adopted the name Tindal-Carill-Worsley. ["Burke's Landed Gentry" (1973) Tindal-Carill-Worsley, "formerly" of East Carleton & Platt] Elizabeth was a descendant of Erasmus Darwin and of Major General Charles Worsley of Platt, one of Oliver Cromwell's most important Lieutenants to whom was entrusted the Mace when Cromwell famously cried 'rid me of that bauble' in expelling the House of Commons in 1652. [Booker, Rev J "History of Birch Chapel" (19th c) pp 48/49.]

The current head of the English family is Charles Tindal of Ballyloughan (he does not use 'Carill-Worsley'), son of Group Captain Nicolas Tindal-Carill-Worsley, a bomber pilot during World War II and one of the organisers of the "Great Escape" from Stalag Luft III. His brother, Anthony, son, Matthew and niece and nephew William and Harriet together run Tindal Wines in England and Ireland (www.tindalwine.com, www.tindalwines.co.uk).

Irish branch and distinguished individuals


A branch of the family settled in Ireland in the Middle Ages, and manuscript genealogical records of these exist in Trinity College Dublin. ["Manuscript genealogies": see MS. vols. F.3.23, F.3.27, F.4.18 in Trinity College Library, Dublin] The family originated in Gloucestershire and were closely related to William Tyndale, the bible translator. Another William Tyndall is mentioned in the 1659 census as living in Duganstowne, Catherlagh (County Carlow), co-owned by him and a Richard Andrewes as tituladoes. Similarly, a John Tyndall came from Gloucestershire to Ireland during the Wars of Rebellion and had a grant of land confirmed to him in 1668. He married Isabelle de Rinzy of County Wexford.

Amongst the landed gentry in Ireland in the 1800s, Tyndalls appeared established with estates and seats at Ballyanne House, and Berkeley Forest, both in New Ross, County Wexford, and Prospect Hall, County Kilkenny, as well as in County Carlow, and Kildevin, County Westmeath, and Dublin City. Samuel Tyndall served as Lord Mayor of Dublin from 1826 to 1827.

Prominent Irish Tyndalls

John Tyndall (1820-1893) from Leighlinbridge, County Carlow, Ireland, was a well-known physicist from Ireland, who discovered the Tyndall effect, explaining why the sky is blue. [Brock, WH, and Mollan, RC (ed) (Royal Dublin Society 1981) "John Tyndall – Essays on a Natural Philosopher".] ["Dublin Almanacks", 1830, 1840, & 1860.] A relative, another John Tyndall of Newcastle ran a forge, coachmaking and saddlery, in the middle of the 1800s, and his grandson, David P. Tyndall (1890-1970), from Chapelizod, became a prominent Irish businessman in the 20th century, who founded the firm D. Tyndall & Sons, as well as several other companies, and consolidated and modernised the wholesale trade sector, introducing the SPAR chain into Ireland. Other lines of the Irish branch of the family have spread to Australia and the USA.
