In the 1600s, the Hurley family was noted to have come into a sum of money as a result of a Sir Matthew Hurley discovering gold.
In 1789-95, 13 members of the Family lost their heads in the French Revolution. The rest fled to America. In 1835, A bout of Smallpox killed 3 members of the family.
That brings us up to current history, from 1845 onwards.
1927 - Marie has married Gerald Hurley (ne Dorsay) and is pregnant.
Thank you! I've made a few of these types of threads before but they've never lasted. This time, it will. Also, I have a family tree for them!

Thank you! I love making dramatic storylines so I'm going ham with adding some drama.
I also use the little silhouette photos for them because I made the tree after some of them had died and I had banished their souls, thus making it weird ot have some people with photos and osme without. so silhouette graphic instead!
1930 - Marie has fallen Pregnant again.
For some events (like illness or the Titanic) I used wheel spinner to decide who would die/how many would die. For others (Like the stillbirth) I just decided I was bored. For the economy crash I just followed history (The Wall Street Crash of '29). Plus all of the events, to my knowledge, are realistic for their time periods.
I enjoy seeing your family's timeline. I hope you don't mind that I chose to do one too.
Why should I care if you do one? It's your choice, it's not like I copyrighted this concept of Decades Challenge Timelines. Also, I favorited your timeline. Can't wait to see what happens!
Its been my sad experience that some get irritated if "copied". I am delighted that you do not feel that way. Thanks for favoriting my timeline! I look forward to seeing more of your own.
ETA: Wrote Marie and not Elizabeth, Marie is fine. Elizabeth bit the dust.
