Early Life

Frank Tivey was born in 1838 in Birmingham. His mother was the former Phoebe Morris (1805-1874) and his father was Isaac Tivey (1803-1871). His father worked as a tailor and Francis enjoyed a comfortable childhood, the family usually had one servant in the house. However, Isaac suffered from alcoholism and attempted suicide in later life.

Frank left this family shortly after the birth of Charles. They apparently kept in touch, as Lucretia knew when Frank died.

Second marriage and Children

Frank's second wife was Mary Ann Palmer (c1849-1914), although no marriage record can be found and it is possible that they were never married, especially since the marriage would have been bigamous. They first lived in Lancashire, where Frank worked as a tailor but moved to the United States in 1883. They had the following children:

They lived at 12 Watson Street, Hulme, Lancashire in 1881. After moving to the United States they first lived in Springfield, Massachesetts. They later moved to Hartford, Connecticut where Frank appeared in trade directories as a tailor of 9 Goodman Place.

Frank died on 10 June 1899 and was buried in Hartford. Both his wives were listed as widows on the 1900/1901 census. Mary Ann died in 1914 in Hartford and Lucretia died in 1919 in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.
