  • A Note on the Good Doctor

    When performing research on this suspect via Google or whatever, be sure to look for all variations of his name. Just recently someone was bemoaning the fact that just such a search had turned up nothing. Well, here's the man's headstone:


    I think there is at least one other common spelling variation in use.

    Good advice for those interested in pursuing Tumblety material.

    There are numerous spellings...Tumilty, Kumblety, Twomblety, Tumbelty, etc.

      Thanks, Howard. A good cautionary note. I think one of the odd things about Tumblety is that he seems to have been comfortable with these different spellings of his name. But then maybe he used them as if they were aliases, like Townsend or Blackburn. They probably added to the slipperiness of the guy.

        When Grahf and I were in London recently, we went to the replica of the Globe Theater, which has the original of Shakespeare's will. This will contains the only known specimens of Shakespeare's handwriting (all of his original manuscripts have been lost) in the form of his signature. What is germane here is that he signed this will in 4 different places - and the spelling of his name, in his own handwriting, is different in each of the 4 locations.

        Maybe the Good Doctor was a direct descendant.
