Daniel GUMBRIL (c1690-1743)

and Mary NIGHTINGALE (?-1742)


Daniel Gumbrel and Mary Nightingale married by banns on 17 May 1712 in Billingshurst, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Daniel Gumbrel's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was buried on 6 January 1742/3 in Billingshurst, as Daniel Gumbrill.  Might he have been baptised on 29 May 1683 in Warnham, Sussex, the son of Thomas Gumbrell (?-1716) and Mary Fielder (?-1719)?
