I have added information about the first wife of Edward Cayley (1733-1805), Anne Simpson, and their children. See Cornelius Cayley line.
Yes, people with the Cayley surname feature in fiction. They include a murderer in A A Milne’s only crime novel, an intrepid late Victorian female in a romp by Grant Allen, and a Lady Sarah Cayley in a novel by May Sinclair. I have added a page to the website listing works I know of. Please tell me of others you come across, using the contact page.
Several of the novels are available for free download on the internet, from sites like http://manybooks.net.
I have added more Cayley placenames etc to the page with places and buildings featuring the Cayley name: Cayley Park in the City of Westland, Michigan; Cayley Lodge and Mountain Resort in South Africa; Cayley hall of residence, Loughborough University, England; Cayley Street and Cayley Primary School in Tower Hamlets, London; and Cayley College in Nigeria.
If you know of more places etc that should go on the page, please tell me, using the contact page on this site. If you know which Cayley they were named after, it would be helpful if you could say.
In true Michael Cayley masochistic form, I have spent half the day transferring the remaining information – relating to families not connected with the Cayley baronets – over from the old website. Job now complete!
I will probably give myself a well-earned rest from the website tomorrow. I will soon start thinking about what other information to add.
I have now transferred to this website all the family tree information on the old website relating to the Cayley baronets and connected families. Enjoy! Over time, I plan to add some more information.
What remain to be moved are the pages relating to other families not associated with the Yorkshire baronets.
Some days ago I decided to move the Cayley family history site to WordPress.com. The process so far has been much easier and quicker than I expected. I have now transferred over about half of the information, and amended links in Wikipedia articles on Cayleys so that they point to the new site. I much prefer the way things look with the WordPress template I chose.
