Tilston Clan
Tilston Clan
Ray Warburton
This clan was formerly the Shocklach clan until it was discovered that two key members of the clan were more probably descended from a family at Tilston. Tilston and  Shocklach are neighbouring parishes in the south west corner of Cheshire near the Welsh and Shropshire boarders.  A DNA result from the clan is a match for one in the Liverpool and Oldham clan, showing a common ancestor. These two clans now form the West Cheshire Group.

The clan also includes the descendants of Thomas Warburton (born 1848), the illegitimate son of Elizabeth, though which of two possible Elizabeths is uncertain. It also includes a second DNA profile with strong Stewart connections.
