I am from England, but following the Ryle tradition, I ran away to America in 1998 and I am now a US citizen.
My paternal Grandmother was a Ryle, but she died in 1957 when I was just a few weeks old. My late father was given Ryle as a middle name as his mother had no brothers to continue the name.
My Grandfather told me that his wife recalled 'The Bishop' coming to tea on Sunday when she was a child, and called him Uncle. I am certain that he was not an Uncle, and presume this to be H.E. rather than J.C.. Perhaps he was an older cousin, called Uncle out of respect?
I have been looking at one of JC's uncles who "married a woman of lower station" (after getting her pregnant I suspect) and was disowned and went down south. He later remarried.
Do you have a tree published that I can peruse?
