William GUMBRELL (?-?)

and Grace VIRGO (?-?)


William Gumbrel and Grace Virgo married on 31 January 1698/9 at St. Anne's in Lewes, Sussex.  Grace was from St. Michael's in Lewes.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

William Gumbrel's date and place of birth are unknown, to me.  Might he have been baptised on 22 November 1672 in Chiddingfold, Surrey and have been the son of Thomas Gumbrell?  A database at notes he was born in 1678 and was the son of Daniel Gumbrell and Elizabeth.

Grace Virgo's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


William Gumbrell and Grace Virgo may have the following children:

  1. Thomas Gumbrell was apprenticed to Thomas Harman, pipe maker of St. Anne's on 17 October 1718.  Thomas was then of St. Michael, Lewes.

  2. John Gumbrell was baptised on 24 June 1709 in the St. Michael's parish of Lewes.  He was apprenticed to Thomas Harman, the younger, pipe maker of St. Anne's on 17 October 1718.  John was then of St. Michael, Lewes.   He married Mary Evershead on 31 October 1734 at St. Michael's in Lewes.  (They have their own page.)
