  Additional information provided by Alexander Gingell :

Following his death - announcement in the Jackson's Oxford Journal on 16th August 1845, : "John, eldest son of Mr James Gingell, of Woodhouse, East Ham, Essex, in his 21st year" - a "Memoir of John Douglas Gingell of East Ham" was published in 1846. The publishers: Charles Gilpin, 5, Bishopsgate Without, London; Printer: Richard Barrett, 13, Mark Lane; "Printed for Private Circulation". This 15 page publication is digitized by Google.

A few citations from the "Memoirs" are:

"From early childhood, he was of a very reflective turn of mind, and envinced thought and judgement beyond his tender years." "These beatiful traits of character were carefully watched by a beloved and judicious mother. ....scarcely reached his eleventh year, when her death deprived him of her invaluable care:" "Shortly after this afflictive dispensation, he was removed to school at Stratford." "On leaving school, in his fourteenth year, he was introduced into his father's business in the Hay-market." "In the case of John D. Gingell, we believe that ability rightly to perform this Christian duty was greatly increased, by his daily practice of daily retirement in private before the Lord, and by his frequent and prayerful perusal of the Holy Scriptures." "In the spring of 1845, he took a voyage to Edinburgh.......paying a visit to one of his sisters, who was residing in that city." "His short stay was one of great pleasure........as it was on his return from this visit that the foundation was laid of the illness which terminated his death. Wishing to proceed home by water, he took his departure in the Leith steamer. During the first part of their voyage, the weather was favourable, but at length the wind increased in violence, till it blew a perfect hurricane. At the end of about five days.....succeeded....in reaching Yarmouth Roads, though not without the loss of their rudder and great injury to the vessel, and at length arrived at London a few days afterwards." "....his bodily frame received a shock, from which it never recovered. During the nine months over which his illness extended, he devoted much of his time to meditation and prayer, and the perusal of the scriptures" "....in a letter to his sister in Scotland, who was just recovering from a serious illness..." "Though not a member of the Society of Friends, he always attended their meetings for divine worship....he mentioned that should he be again restored, he had made up his mind to apply to the Monthly Meeting of Ratcliff and Barking, to be admitted as a member."

"A few minutes before he expired, he uutered the following words at intervals:"Make haste, make haste, O God! to help me;" ...then added @I thank Thee, thank Thee - I have done." With a sweet smile on his countenance, he then peacefully expired, without a struggle or a groan." "He had just completed his twenty-first year."

John was buried on 17th August 1845 at Stoke Newington Society of Friends Burial Ground, Yoakley Road.
