I doubt that my family is the same as the one you are looking for, but they come from the same area (Wons). My grandfather was Sjoerd (1884-1963) married to Marta B÷bisch, his father was Klaas Folkerts Tilstra (b. 1855) married to Eeke Tilma, his father was Folkert Klaazes Tilstra (1805-1866) married to Martha Annes Feenstra, and his father was Klaas Tilstra--I have no further information about this earliest Klaas. The death records for each of these, except Sjoerd, are recorded in Wonseradeel according to the Frisian genealogical site (

If you have more information about the seven orginal families taking on the Tilstra name, I would appreciate you taking the time to post that information here.
