Daniel GUMBREL (1754-1827)

and Mary GREENFIELD (c1760-?)

 

Daniel Gumbrel and Mary Greenfield married by banns on 6 October 1782 in Shipley, Sussex.  He was then from Billingshurst and she was of Shipley.  The witnesses to their marriage were Elizabeth Grinstead and James Fillary.

Daniel Gumbril was baptised on 26 May 1754 in Billingshurst, Sussex.  He was the son of Daniel Gumbrel (1714-1791) and Alice (?-1767).  Daniel died aged 73 years and was buried on 18 September 1827 in Billingshurst.

Mary Greenfield's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Her last known child was born in 1792.  Might she have been buried on 2 November 1794 in Billingshurst?

On 12 February 1790 a settlement certificate was issued by the overseers of Billingshurst parish to allow Daniel Gumbrill and his wife Mary to settle in Pulborough.  Also named in the document were their children:  Hannah aged 7, James aged 4, Daniel aged 3 and 6 month old Luke.  However, on the same day a settlement order was issued by Pulborough overseers allowing the family to settle in Billingshurst!

 

Daniel Gumbrel and Mary Greenfield had 5 known children:

  1. Hannah Gumbrel was baptised on 26 January 1783 in Billingshurst.

  2. James Gumbrel was baptised on 1 March 1785 in Billingshurst.  He may have died aged 75 years and have been buried on 9 October 1859 in Billingshurst.  The burial register noted he was from Rosar Gate.

  3. Daniel Gumbrel was baptised on 13 May 1787 in Billingshurst.  He died aged 35 years and was buried on 21 November 1822 in Billingshurst.

  4. Luke Gumbrel was baptised on 19 July 1789 in Billingshurst.  He died aged 81 years and was buried on 20 September 1870 in Billingshurst.

    Luke married Frances Harraden by banns on 15 September 1822 in Billingshurst.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster who married with the consent of her parents.  The witnesses to their marriage were Joseph Clear and James Champion.

    Frances died aged 81 years and was buried on 19 September 1881 in Billingshurst.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the couple and 5 children were living at Simonds Lodge in Billingshurst.  Luke was a 49 year old agricultural labourer and Fanny was 45.

    In 1851, the couple along with 2 of their children and 1 year old granddaughter Jane Gumbrell were living at Rosier Gate in Billingshurst.  Luke was then a 62 year old agricultural labourer, born in Pulborough, and Frances was 58 and born in Brighton.

    The couple were still at Rosier Gate in 1861.  Luke was then a 72 year old agricultural labourer and Frances was 67.  With them were the family of their son Mark, and 11 year old granddaughter Jane.

    When the 1871 census was recorded, Frances said she was a 77 year old widow of an agricultural labourer.  She was living at Rosier Gate and said she was born in Arundel.

    In 1881 Frances was said to be 80 years old and born in Billingshurst.  She was living alone in the High Street, Billingshurst.

    Luke and Frances had the following children:

    1. Rhoda Gumbrell was baptised on 5 January 1823 in Billingshurst and the baptism register noted that her father was a labourer.  She died aged 17 years and was buried on 25 August 1840 in Billingshurst.  The burial register noted that she died from a tumour on the neck.

    2. Lois Gumbrell was baptised on 24 October 1824 in Billingshurst and her father was then a labourers.

Gumbrell who was a general house servant employed in the home of Allen Mitchell at Upper Wood House in Billingshurst.
