RECENT NEWS (Dec, 2009)
  I have just discovered that the Riall family may have emigrated to co. Limerick, Ireland from Exeter, England.  The Limerick Rialls moved into co. Tipperary in the 1660s and settled at Cashel, Clonmel, Fethard to name a few areas.

  The original Rialls from Limerick were:

 ?? William RIALL / RYALL / RIAL  m.. Mary ALLEN    or  Grace ALLEN ??
     William; lsited as Alderman in the city or Limerick, 1659
     Mary / Elizabeth; poss, d/o Willliam Allen a fellow Aldrerman of Limerick

     Notes:  This source says that Riall & Allen emigrated from Devon, England
  1 Phineas [1659-    ] See TABLE 1
  1 Samuel [1661-    ] See TABLE 2
  1 William [1663-    ] See TABLE 3
  1 Mary [1665-    ] See TABLE 4
  1 Hannah [1667-    ] See TABLE 5
  1 Purchass /se [1668-    ] See TABLE 6
  1 Elizabeth ;1669-    ] See TABLE 7
  1 John [1670-    ] See TABLE 8

These Tables are made up of information found on the Internet or from cousins who have provided me with material.  Because there seems to be much confusion about this family, I have put what I have on this page in order to help myself and other fellow researchers

Of the above, Phineas can be found on the Internet and John in the FHC.  I believe Phineas and John are brothers.  I believe that Phineas is of Clonmel and John of Cashel. 

  Researching Phineas and John gives no evidence that our Rialls/Ryalls are of the two.  This leaves me to believe that our Rialls descend from William 1663-.  If so, there are about 5 generations to get to our George and Edward Rialls.  So far, the Internet has not given me any hint of William 1663-.

  I leave all the following for research purposes -

The table below is correct as possible but the ancestors have not been found and the probables are listed:

In biographical notes by James Edward Ryall of Somerset, UK d. 1954 it has:  William  ? Ryall (late  18th Century) believed of co. Tipperary with the following names:  George,  John (?),  Edward,  William,  Margaret and Mary. 

Source information is from stapled pages that I have and is titled:  "RYALL Family - Biographical Notes" by James Edward Ryall, Late of North Surrey, Somerset, UK, d. 1954

SOURCES:  (all information is 'sic';    (?) is what the writer wrote;    ? xxxxx ? is unreadable by me

Other information might indicate that a second marriage or illegitimate or some of Phineas Riall's children may have been ancestors of the family below.

There is information pointing to William Riall of Annerville who may have married or had issue with an unknown lady and that ancestry follows in the tables below.  This maybe the William of Annerville, banker & partner with Charles & Arthur or Andrew Riall in the Riall Bank of Clonmel; who married  4 Jan, 1798 Dorothea Bellingham, eldest daughter of Lt. Col. Henry Bellingham of Castle Bellingham, co. Louth.  If all of this is true then my Riall / Ryall lineage can be traced back to Phineas Riall, of Clonmel, co. Tipperary who married in 1692, Elizabeth, dau. of William Vaughan of Clonmel.  However, no proof has been found or hinted at this other than the note that I have.  This may be a case of poor cousins, wishing to be related or not a father relationship but rather a cousin relationship

Contrary to the above family information is a follow-up on Mary Riall married to John Tinsley.  I found a Sweeny-Tinsley-Riall legal document (#4545) which  talks of  the late John Tinsley of Clonmel, master builder, Mary Tinsley his widow, Sgt. Maj. Sweeeny, dated 1827.  This information points me to the fact that John Tinsley husband of Mary Riall was the builder of the homes on Anne St, Clonmel and that the statement(s) shown below (see Mary Riall m. John Tinsley) are accurate.  Then if the statement about John constructing on behalf of John's father-in-law tends to rule out William of Annerville or any William being Mary's father and puts a Charles in her father's place.  There is a Charles Riall who married an Anne Roberts but they married in 1801 and thus could not be the parents of Mary Riall Tinsley

Bio Notes:  First mentioned of Browne William is in a letter written by ??? to his mother, dated 11th July, 1844.  The address is Old Jewry Chanbers, & he appears to have been articled in his uncle "R" Roberts who had a business in London.  Two years later he appears in Madras (letter to his mother, dated 3rd June, 1846,  He has apparently left his Uncle's firm "for health reasons" (???   ??  R. Robert's letter to Catharine of 25 Nov, 1848, & had joined the East India Company as a Cadet.  By the end of that year, he was in financial difficulties (see leter of R. Roberts to Catharine of 20th Dec, 1846.  For his subsequent career in the Bengal Army much material is available (see his own list of appointments held from 1846 until retirement as a Major General in 1881)  Also by???? of Record of Service.  During the 38 years of military service, he was engaged in three campaigns & commanded successively the 8?, 14th & 17th regiments of Bengal Calvary.  He was mentioned in dispatches & was recommended for the Victoria Cross (he didn't get it) for gallantry at the battle of Banda 1858, during the Mutiny.  Posted as Brigade Commander.

Family tradition - evidence that B-W owned some property in ? Ootacannund ?, India but that the little-deeds of this property were unfortunately "lost".  It appears that he inherited some Irish property form his mother, Catharine (nee Roberts), which property he left to his widow, Louisa.  B-W's will, executed in Australia (original) & dated 21st Sept, 1886, was admitted to Probate on 4 Apr, 1894.  By it, he left his entire estate of £453 to his widow, Louisa.  He seems to have been singularly unlucky in his financial transactions.  Edward and Louisa after his retirement apparently lived lodgings, sometimes in Brighton & sometimes in Ventor.
Elizabeth Hill's brother, James Hill, lived near Westbourne Terrace, London W..  Her unmarried sisters, Annie Bella & Nina assisted her with the gfrowing family of  ???? children.  By her will she left the ??? property (two houses in Stradbally which she had inherited from Catharine Ryall, nee Roberts) to her step-daughter, Katie & her surviving son Edward Charles.  A few hundred pounds were left to Nina (? blind ?) and Irwen Murray ( certified )

1.  Charles Henry RYALL [1874-1908] - Man-Eaters of Tsavo

http://www.rtpnet.org/robroy/tsavo/tsavo.html#appendix      Excerpt:  .....He (the lion) sprang at once at Ryall, but in order to reach him had actually to plant his feet on Parenti, who, it will be remembered, was sleeping on the floor. At this moment Huebner was suddenly awakened by a loud cry, and on looking down from his berth was horrified to see an enormous lion standing with his hind feet on Parenti's body, while his forepaws rested on poor Ryall. Small wonder that he was panic-stricken at the sight. There was only one possible way of escape, and that was through the second sliding door communicating with the servants' quarters, which was opposite to that by which the lion had entered. But in order to reach this door Huebner had literally to jump on to the man-eater's back, for its great bulk filled up all the space beneath his berth. It sounds scarcely credible, but it appears that in the excitement and horror of the moment he actually did this, and fortunately the lion was too busily engaged with his victim to pay any attention to him. So he managed to reach the door in safety; but there, to his dismay, he found that it was held fast on the other side by the terrified coolies, who had been aroused by the disturbance caused by the lion's entrance. In utter desperation he made frantic efforts to open it, and exerting all his strength at last managed to pull it back sufficiently far to allow him to squeeze through, when the trembling coolies instantly tied it up again with their turbans. A moment afterwards a great crash was heard, and the whole carriage lurched violently to one side; the lion had broken through one of the windows, carrying off poor Ryall with him. Being now released, Parenti lost no time in jumping through the window on the opposite side of the carriage, and fled for refuge to one of the station buildings; his escape was little short of miraculous, as the lion had been actually standing on him as he lay on the floor. The carriage itself was badly shattered, and the wood-work of the window had been broken to pieces by the passage of the lion as he sprang through with his victim in his mouth.   All that can be hoped is that poor Ryall's death was instantaneous. His remains were found next morning about a quarter of a mile away in the bush, and were taken to Nairobi for burial. I am glad to be able to add that very shortly afterwards the terrible brute who was responsible for this awful tragedy was caught in an ingenious trap constructed by one of the railway staff. He was kept on view for several days, and then shot.

2.  Alfgar HESKETH-PRICHARD [1917-1944/45]  The last days of:                

http://www.quns.cam.ac.uk/Queens/Record/1998/History/WartimeMystery.html  Excerpt:  ......His (Alfgar) last signal, on December 3 1944, read, "Give my regards to all at White's. This is no life for a gentleman". After that nothing was heard from him and no-one seems to know how he met his end. Perhaps he was discovered and killed by the Nazis, though no record has been found, perhaps he succumbed to the harsh conditions, perhaps Russian agents competing for control in Southern Austria eliminated him, maybe even the partisans themselves found him too much of liability and had to kill him to avoid detection themselves, though the survivors hotly deny any such idea.  Alfgar's remains were never found, though a body dressed in British uniform was discovered and buried in Volkermarkt where Hesketh-Prichard's name is included on a memorial. the mission is described officially as "magnificent but unsuccessful", but his heroism and gallantry are remembered by the Slovenian people with whom he spent his last months. He was awarded the M.C. posthumously.
