Hello Dianna,

Many thanks for the e-mails - I have written to Susan Barkle (7th Sept) but as yet have not received a reply.

I am a member of the Cornish FHS and the Cornish Forefathers Society - the latter are looking into my Gill family for me and hopefully I should hear something soon.

My Gill line from Cornwall are as follows:

William GILL born 1785 Talland married Martha TOMS born West Looe 1788 - children:

  1. William GILL born Talland/Looe 1819 married Ann CONGDON born Morval 1823
  2. *Charlotte GILL born Talland 1821
  3. *Thomas GILL born Talland1823
  4. *John GILL born Talland1825
  5. *Isaac GILL born Talland 1828


Children of William GILL and Ann CONGDON

  1. John GILL born Church Bridges/St Martins Looe 5 Aug 1850-5 Aug 1919 (buried Stockton Heath Cheshire) married Dinah JOHNS born 12th Jun 1856 Devonshire died 29th Jan 1933 (Stockton Heath Cheshire)
  2. William Henry GILL born St Germans/Looe1853
  3. Charles GILL born Duloe1863 died 26th Oct 1950 buried Duloe
  4. James GILL born Duloe1866


Children of John GILL and Dinah JOHNS

  1. William Henry GILL born 1875 Truro died 3 Apr 1916 Trafford Park Manchester married Hannah COATES
  2. Mary Jane GILL born Newhaven Sussex 2 Dec 1879 married Frederick SCRUTTON - married John Clive WALMERSLEY
  3. Edwin GILL born Newhaven Sussex Sep1881
  4. Annie GILL born Newhaven Sussex 24 Dec 1883 married Earnest HOLT
  5. Charlotte GILL born Grays Essex 19 Dec 1885-1887
  6. Lottie GILL born Runcorn Cheshire 7 Dec 1891 married George Foster REANEY
  7. Florence GILL born Runcorn Cheshire 2nd Sep 1892 married Harry PICKERSGILL
  8. John Horace GILL born Runcorn 5 Jun 1897-25 Nov 1981 married Ethel Robinson (my grandparents)
  9. Percy GILL born Runcorn 24th Apr 1899 married Florence LIGHTFOOT
  10. Alice GILL


*As yet I have not been able to trace the whereabouts of Charlotte, John and Isaac on the census - hopefully the Cornish Forefathers Society will be able to help - they could have died or perhaps emigrated to another country. Thomas Gill was on the 1851 living with his parents William and Martha - Fore Street - West Looe.
