I always knew of my Great Grandfather as William Smith but a family story told that he was born a Gingell but ran away from home and took the name Smith (reason unknown). After many months of searching I got a BIG clue from the 1911 census which told me he was born in Longhope, Gloucestershire. I followed that road and recently acquired his death certificate which states "William Gingell known as William Smith".
William Gingell was born 23rd September 1854 to William and Elizabeth (nee Jones).
In 1871 he (as Gingell) lived with his Aunt Elizabeth who was married to Robert Smith. I then lose William until his marriage to Emily Husbands on 16th July 1894 in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. At this point he (as Smith) was already living in Mickleover, Derby and working as a Platelayer, probably for the Great Northern Railway. He lived and worked in Derby as William Smith until his death on 14th June 1925.
I have got as far back as William's Grandfather, Joseph Gingell, born 1801 in Standish - living in Longhope in 1841.
I would love to go further back and to fill in the missing 23 years for William Gingell/Smith.
Would appreciate any help.
