Henry GUMBRELL (1741-1838)

and Ann BOWLEY (?-1783)

and Mary CANNER (c1770-1847)


Henry Gumbrell married twice, firstly to Ann Bowley by banns on 31 October 1769 in Slindon, Sussex.  He was then of Aldingbourne.  The witnesses to their marriage were Richard Bowley and John Apps, clerk.  As a widower, Henry married Mary Canner by banns on 23 August 1791 in Oving.  She was a spinster and they were both of Oving.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Fallick and William Fleet.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Gumbrel was baptised on 15 September 1741 in Oving.  He was the son of John Gumbrell (1711-?) and Lydia.  Henry died aged 99 years and was buried on 6 July 1838 in Oving.

Ann Bowley's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 30 March 1783 in Oving and the burial register noted that Ann was the wife of Henry Gumbrell.
