Sir Thomas Tyldesley was a decendant (sic) of the Tyldesleys of Tyldesley, Lancashire. An ancestor, Miss Leyland, daughter of Sir William Leyland of Morley's Hall, Lancashire, and heiress to the estates, married very romantically. The match was opposed by her father.

The young lady was locked in her room, but having provided herself with a rope, she tied one end round her body, and then the other to her expecting lover, on the opposite side of the moat, when casting herself out of the window into the water, which was thirty feet wide, he dragged her to land, and they were married before the adventure was known to the family. (Baines History of Lancashire).

The Tyldesley and Leyland Coat-of-Arms appears in the painting. Sir Thomas Tyldesley was killed during the Civil War at Wigan, and a monument which still stands, was erected to his memory. - The painting is loaned by Reeve J.B. Leyland, West Vancouver.
