Along with two colleagues, I'm compiling a book on Somerset photographers 1841-1939. Although most of the photographers included are listed in directories of the period, we've also included other photographers named in newspaper articles, and those for whom we've collected photos taken by them. We have a cabinet card image (estimated date about 1905), with a stamp on the reverse "G Gyngell, photographic artist". We understand the photographer to be Augustus George Gyngell (1834-1911), and, if we have dated the photo correctly, it would be during his time at Woodcock Street, Castle Cary, Somerset. We've created a timeline for him, (as well as for the other 785 photographers we're researching), which includes biographical information, census data, and newspaper reports : the first report we've traced for AGG was in 1844 as an intrepid 8 year old "the child with the iron nerve" ! If anyone on the list knows of any interesting background stories on Augustus George Gyngell, I'd be fascinated to hear from you with many thanks. Phil Nichols.

Hi, just happened across the Gingell website and wanted to say what a fabulous resource! My mother was Eileen M. J. Gingell of Cwmbran area South Wales UK dob 1925 and beyond her Dad Edwin John Gingell, I knew very little. Brings a lump to my throat to know their memory is being kept alive this way. Thanks Craig Gingell!

Mary Webb
9th August 2013

I was interested in Craig Gingell's pic of Gingells Farm Road as we live at Gingells Farm. I have been led to believe that the name came about as a family of Gingells lived here (not sure when though). I also noted Ann Gingell with her connection to Siston (Syston) which is near to here. Any further info welcomed.

Kay Bridgeman
12th March 2013

Hi. I am researching Bridgeman in Christian Malford and have a marriage between my relative John Bridgeman and Elizabeth Gingell in 1784 - as there is an Elizabeth born in 1764 an it appears to be in Christian Malford. From your records I note her father was an Agricultural Labourer so was John Bridgeman. - Very interesting and informative sight. Incidentally. if you are able to confirm my findings, please let me know as there are records in the Census on here but not for a marriage... I found that by trawling through marriages on another site. Thanks.

Kathi Haslam-Murray

Ettie Maud Gingell was my grandmother. She was brought up in the Grenadier Guards Officers school in London (although I believe great grandad was not an officer this was arranged for family reasons), sat on the knee of Queen Victoria and received a silver sixpence from her. When the time came to leave school she went "below stairs" with many of her school friends marrying above stairs. It's great to know that the Gingell tree not only goes so far back but also is alive and well today.

Hello all Gingells wherever you are.

Patricia Eaton Franklin
27th January 2011

Hello. I am the niece of the late Vera Phyllis Gingell, wife of my late Uncle William Franklin Moyer. Aunt Vera was a lovely, sweet woman, with a tender air about her. She lived with my uncle in Ashley, PA, a tiny, mining town nestled in the mountains. Uncle William and she never had children of their own, but they welcomed me and my brothers with open arms. Despite our high energy, she trusted us with the good china, and that brought out our best behavior. The house, which had been in our family since 1906, was only let go after Vera passed. Vera was our favorite. We all miss her.

Raymond Francis Bird
31st December 2010

Have only recently gone on the internet at home, hence discovering this great site on the Gingell's - my congratulations to Craig and all concerned. In particular I love seeing the old photos and reading those extra snippets of info that puts a bit of "flesh on the bone" on that persons life. Anyhow while pressing little buttons here and gadgets there, (yes I am new to this internet lark on my own) I stumbled upon this guest list column, so thought I would say hello - Hello all you Gingells!! My own connection to the clan is via my grandmother Emily Gingell that married a Reg Bird. I had intended to ask a serious question but think I have gone "on a bit" so will leave that for another day, plus it's New years eve and time to get washed and changed and off to the pub. Happy new year to you all. Raymond Bird.

Sally Eileen Berry
26th December 2009

I live in California. My great-great grandmother was Lucy Ody Gingell (b. 1817, d. 1891, Willesley, Wiltshire), born to Benjamin Gingell (b. 1767 d 1847) and Martha Ody, b. 1777 Sherston, d 1851). Children were Ann Gingell, Lucy Ody Gingell, Mary Gingell, Harriet Gingell. Lucy Ody Gingell married Isaac Berry, b. Sherston Magna 1809 and they had Benjamin Gingell Berry (my great-grandfather), George Berry, William Isaac Berry, Martin Berry, Albert Berry, Martha Berry, Sidney Berry. This is family tree info I learned from Pauline Berry of Painswick, Gloucestershire this summer while visiting my grandfather's birthplace (he was Albert Edward Berry who emigrated to Can.). I was trying to see if I could find out who Benjamin Gingell's (b 1767) parent's were and anything farther back if possible.

Sherrill Plumridge

I have relations on my husbands side that I am having difficulty finding on any census records. Janet Gingell born Aug 7 1871 (possibly in Wroughton) and Anna Gingell who married a Richard House 6/7/1872. Has anyone any information on them. These dates came from handwritten records handed down the family. Regards Sherrill.

Norman Ardin

Just found this site could not believe it when I saw the Ardin name. Have no idea who they are as have never known anybody in the family mention relitives outside of the Midlands area, at the age of 73 bit late to start finding out but glad to know they exist.

Linda Jeffery
22nd October 2009

Interesting website! I have just found out that my husband's aunt Joan Eileen Jeffery married a Roy Frederick Gingell around 1944. He was wearing a uniform - army? - at their wedding. They had a son called Alan Michael Gingell around 1945. Then unfortunately Joan Gingell died on 1/12/1948, aged 27, and is buried at Hither Green Cemetery in SW London. I believe Alan Gingell, the son, who was looked after by his maternal grandmother Dolly Osborne in Tollesbury in Essex after his mother's death, was also killed in 1966 (perhaps a motorcycle accident?). If there is anyone out there that recognizes this Roy Gingell, who may have remarried, I would be grateful for any information at all as this aunt was a complete mystery. Thank you. Linda (in Sydney, Australia).

Hello everyone, I have a Louisa Gingell in my tree born: c1856 St George, Bristol, who married Samuel Robert Flook Phipps in 1881 Bristol. (Samuel was the Brother of my G.G.Grandfather Henry PHIPPS). They are recorded together on the 1881/91/1901 census together - but I can't find her on the 1861/71, so therefor haven't got a clue who her Father or family were? I know her and Samuel were landlords of The Cross Keys Pub in Moravian Road Kingswood from 1901-1906. She's a mystery to me, so with a bit of luck one of you may be able to shed some light on her story?

Heather Wurz

Jennifer Anne Rankin
20th March 2009

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.

Hi everyone. please bear with me, this is quite long , but any bit of this may jog someone's memory, that's what I'm hoping. I'm looking for Patrica Thompson nee Patricia J. Denham born Edmonton, Middlesex in 1950, her father was William Denham a director at some Electro plating company, maybe around Edmonton in the 1940s and 1950s. Her mother was Mary Elizabeth Gingell born 1914 Wandsworth, she was the daughter of John George Gingell. On Mary Elizabeth Gingell's first marriage in 1934 to Edward Young, her father John George Gingell gave his occupation as groundsman. Mary Elizabeth Gingell was living at 157, Atheldene Road, Earlsfield, in the parish of Wandsworth in 1934. I do not know when she divorced, but in 1950 she had Patricia J. Denham at 85 Town Road, Edmonton, and then in 1951 had a son Ian William Denham, who was put up for adoption about a year later. Any information will be special. Thank you for reading this.

Hi Gyngells. William Gyngell (Bill) was my Grandfather born 1913 lived in Portobello Road in London, was married to Mabel Smallman who is now 99 years old and lives in New Zealand with my mother Sheila Morgan. That's all I know, other than he had a son Francis William Gyngell. Thanks Glyn

I'm reposting this message from February 2005, in case anyone has new information. W.B. Gingell, Architect, of Bristol. Can anyone throw any more light on William Gingell (1819-1900)? He was born in St Pancras, London, trained as an architect in Bath in the 1840s, and was in practice in Bristol from about 1852 almost up to his death. He was one of the most prolific architects in Bristol in the 19th century. Bristol General Hospital (1852) and the wonderful Lloyds Bank, Corn Street (1854-7) survive, along with much else. There are a couple of references to him on this site - but can any local Gingells claim descent? Does anyone know more? According to the 1881 census, he had a married daughter, Sophia Stenhouse; and his 3 sisters, who lived near him, had lodging with them a nephew (Ernest B. Gingell, born c.1861). He may have been W.B.G's son. Any information would be gratefully received.

Trying to connect with Gingell who fought for the Americans in Revolutionary War. His name is George Gingell and was born in Wiltshire, England in 1750. His son's name was James and James was married to Elizabeth Grinman (I have the proof of this). Their son another James was born in 1817 here. Anyone have any information? Ship documents are vague. Thank you for any nugget.

I saw an article in 'Your Family Tree' about this website and the Gingell reunion. I haven't delved into the Gingell line in my family but I have the birth certificate for my paternal grandmother, Rhoda Diamond, who was born on 17 Feb 1869. Her father was George Diamond, a bricklayer, and her mother was Elizabeth Diamond formerly Elizabeth Gingell. The place of birth and residence was at 2 Artichoke Hill in the District of St George in the East, in the East End of London, very close to the docks. This is all I know about my tenuous link to the Gingells - does anybody know anything about Elizabeth Gingell ? Any information would be appreciated.

Some time ago I sought help in tracing my grandfather (my grandmother was Francis Florence Gingell). I have since learned of a dastardly tale! It seems that the then Lord Methuen (a certain field marshall no less) was a wicked old goat who amused himself with the young serving girls at Corsham Court. Has any one else heard anything about this and can they add to the story. Should I be hiding my head in shame or laying siege to Corsham Court as the rightful tenant!

Does anyone have any information on Fanny Miles, born 1856 Kington St Michael? She married Joseph Davis from Marshfield in Gloucestershire and they adopted my Grandad around 1910 when he was about 5. I believe my Grandad was possibly a relatives child (maybe from the miles side of the family as his adoptive parents were in their early 50's when they took him in) Unfortunately, Fanny destroyed my Grandads birth certificate so I have no record of who he was, his adopted name was Frederick Charles Horace Davis born around 1905, possibly Hampshire area. Fanny Miles lived in Compton Dando in Somerset when she adopted/fostered my Grandad. If anyone has a child in their tree that may match this information, please contact me as I have reached a full stop in my genealogy research. Thanks From Rachael Hayes

Great website thanks Craig. Trying to find family from my dad Alan Christopher Gingell to his grandad Arthur Gingell and his dad William Henry Gingell.

I believe it took place c 11 Sep 1796 and that John was christened 11 May 1767. I have nothing on Hannah though.

ALICE MAUDE GINGELL b. 1882 in the Rhonda Valley daughter of John and Martha Gingell from Lyneham (see below).

ARTHUR J HUNT b. c1871 Grandson of Jacob and Maria Hunt of Lyneham (see below).

I am currently researching the Gingell and Hunt families of Lyneham who were linked through the marriage of John Gingell and Martha Hunt in 1875.

John Gingell was born in 1841, the son of Job Gingell and Elizabeth Simpkins. Martha Hunt was the child of Jacob Hunt and Maria ... Hunt of Lyneham b. c1850.

If anyone has information on these two strands of the family tree I would be most grateful for contact.

Liz Wade

I am slightly related to the Gingell's via Martha Louisa Linzey who married Mark Gingell in 1875. Martha's father was Levi Linzey who was a brother to my Eli Linzey. Any contact would be appreciated from this part of the Gingell family. Liz

I have stumbled across your excellent web page in connection with my research into my Great Grandfather John Andrews. John Andrews married Ann Hall (nee Ann Gingell), widow of Thomas Hall, between July and September 1899, Ann Gingell having been widowed in 1892. John Andrews was minister at Hilperton Strict Baptist Chapel following the death of my Great Grandmother Harriett Neave in 1894 in Ipswich. When he actually moved to Hilperton I do not know but the Gingells certainly had an association with the church from your web site. By the time of their marriage Ann Gingell was certainly well past child bearing age so there is no 'blood' connection between us.

I know it is a long shot - has anybody by any chance got a wedding photograph taken at Hilperton baptist Church which might show my Great Grandfather? I couldn't see one in your portait gallery.

I can give you a bit of history about John if you are interested. Because of his strict Baptist views his daughter, my grandmother, had to elope as my grandfather was a member of the Church of England. He thought going to the theatre was an abomination but membership of the Church of England was even worse!

Hi there Gingells. I've just discovered a Gingell married into my tree. My great grandmother Mary Burten was daughter of Stephen Burten and Sarah Idels [ a widow, who had several children including Sarah , born 1821].

I married Andrew Thomas Gingell of Fremantle, Western Australia. I'm 7th generation West Australian on my Mother's side, part of the Durack clan, so it was fantastic to view the Gingell webpage and learn about a family with so few relatives here. One day we would like to visit all our extended relatives in England and Canada.

Richard Jordan
16th January 2006

Having stumbled upon this website purely by accident, I am utterly amazed how much information is available here. I started with a mid 19th century Gingell and ended up at the beginning of the 17th century in about 10 minutes of searching !! And I noticed that the fate of my great, great grandmother, Sarah Ann Gingell ("Annie") of Trowbridge, Wiltshire is not recorded on the website. So I have something to contribute too. Best wishes to all. From the snowy mountains of northern Japan.

A very interesting website. My mother's maiden name was Alice Maud Gingell. She was born in 1897 and died in 1990. Her married name was Blacker. She was born in Cadbury Heath, Warmley, Bristol. My mother had two sisters, Marian Priscilla Gingell and Edith Kate Gingell, and a brother named Clifford George Gingell. Happy new year to all the Gingells everywhere.

Hi Craig. It has been a while since I have been in contact with you. I was just reading the comments in the guestbook. There needs to be more specific info, such as where you live and where the people you are looking for live. This is a great site and you have done a terrific job. Talking about where a person lives, I live in Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada. I was born in Calgary, Alberta and moved to British Columbia when I was about three. Anyone wishing to contact me, let Craig know and he will forward your email to me. Thanks. Betty.

I must congratulate you on a really first class website... makes me feel really inefficient, as far as computers go... As you know I did write earlier this year... I have been trying to trace Tom Gingell - no relation - but he was my Scout Master at Market Lavington in 1942 - 44 at that time he was employed by GPO, but had served in the Army before the War. He had a son John Gingell b.c.1929. I expect Tom Gingell will be dead, but I would like to contact John Gingell again!! Thank you

Steven Hayward

Hello all Gingel(l)s. I wonder if anyone has any information on my gr(x4) grandmother Sarah Gingel. She married Thomas Iddols in King's Stanley, Gloucestershire, England on 27th October 1777. Any information would be gratefully received. The Iddols/Iddles name is very similar to the Gingel name and originates from a few families in the Gloucestershire / Wiltshire area - probably from Flemish weavers who fled persecution in the 1400s. The demise of the weaving industry in the mid 1800s caused the widespread emigration of Iddles throughout the world. Good luck in linking together your ancesters. Regards Steve.

What a fantastic site, and i found it completely by accident. I am the great, great, great, great grand daughter of Horatio Nelson Gyngell born circa 1800. Is there anyone out there that can tell me who his parents may have been. He was married to Mary Ann Banks, and there is a very strong theatrical background to his family. He was born in London, but is living in Worcester, England on the 1881 census. Can anyone also help me find anything on his daughter Agnes, i know who she married, who her children are, where she lived in 1881, but can't find any record of her birth. Look forward to hearing from any long distant relatives. Louise.

Rebecca Hoke Gingell
16th September 2005

It has been since 2000 since I've visited this webpage and I know why. I just want to spend so much time when I get here. I haven't found out much personally but it's just nice (wrong word) indescribable (maybe) just to feast my eyes on other Gingell's. Silly, maybe, but nice (good word). Seems we are few here in the United States. Does anyone in Wales have stories of any Gingell's who participated in the Welsh revival? I so love to hear them. God bless you all.

What a great site! I married into the Gingell family, my husbands name is Robert J. Gingell he is the son of Henry John Gingell and Patricia N. E. Davis (nee Davies) from Moredon, Swindon, Wiltshire.

Look forward to hearing from any one who knows this branch of the Gingell family.

Hello - I'm trying to seek information on Bruce Hay Gingell, son of William John Gingell who owned the "Biddle & Gingell" soft drinks factory in Leyton, Essex, England. We know that the factory closed in about 1961 and we believe that Bruce Hay Gingell emigrated to the United States. My husband's grandfather was the brother of William John Gingell and, sadly his family lost contact with that branch after his great-uncle died. Would be very grateful to hear from anyone who may have information. We think that Bruce Hay Gingell would be in his 60's. Many thanks.

Looking for Roan Gingell and Clancy Gingell. Roan Gingell was adopted as Bryan Dreyer and Clancy Gingell as Donny (last name unknown). These two are my nephews from my brother Ronald Linnwood Gingell and I believe both were/are living in Ohio. Roan Gingell (Bryan) posted an entry in late 2001 on another geneology site, to which my finace, Herb Bates, responded in May 2002. No further response received from Roan Gingell to date. Roan Gingell (Bryan), Clancy Gingell (Donny) or anyone with any info on them, please respond. Many thanks for an outstanding site. I thought we Gingells were few and far between so I am amazed to find evidence of so many of us!! Also, I agree with Craig Mark Peter Gingell that we are all related, somehow and someway...

26 FEB 2008 UPDATE : We have located Bryan (previously Roan Gingell) and know the whereabouts of his brother, Donny (previously Clancy Gingell).

W.B. Gingell, Architect, of Bristol. Can anyone throw any more light on William Bruce Gingell (1819-1900)? He was born in St Pancras, London, trained as an architect in Bath in the 1840s, and was in practice in Bristol from about 1852 almost up to his death. He was one of the most prolific architects in Bristol in the 19th century. Bristol General Hospital (1852) and the wonderful Lloyds Bank, Corn Street (1854-7) survive, along with much else. There are a couple of references to him on this site - but can any local Gingells claim descent? Does anyone know more? According to the 1881 census, he had a married daughter, Sophia Stenhouse; and his 3 sisters, who lived near him, had lodging with them a nephew (Ernest B. Gingell, born c.1861). He may have been W.B.G's son. Any information would be gratefully received.

Please can anyone help with a trace ? The person is ELIZABETH GINGELL. Place Nympsfield, Gloucestershire. Known details : She was known by a pet name of ETHA. Unmarried. Lived in Nympsfield all her life. Died in Nympsfield. Date of Death after 1980. I have tried to find out information from the local historian there but this is all she would tell me, although ETHA lived less than 50 yards from her. There is no record that I can find in the local Churches of her death and the Clergy were very unhelpful also. I don't know what religeon she was and some of the churches in the area have been closed now. So please if anyone can help, I would be very greatful, if only to solve the puzzle of ETHA. Thank you for reading this and a very Happy New Year to one and all. Sunny :)

My GYNGELL family lived in Berkshire in the 19th century but Daniel Gyngell b. 1788 has now been traced to Wiltshire, son of Jasper Gingell and Millicent Head. Interested to hear from any connections with the Berkshire GYNGELLs.

Kelly Anne Gingell

What a great site, who would think that there are so many of us. It's good to see that so many Gingells are interested in making our name known (as many people say "pardon what was that again").

15th October 2004

Hello, Just wanted to say I think this site is great. My first child, a son, Aiden Michael Gyngell, is about to be born within a week or two and I thought I would do some research into our name. No I did'nt name him Gordon Pearl Gyngell V, as I thought 4 was sufficient, but the Gyngell name lives on. I will visit again and hopefully have more info to add about our piece of the family tree.

Herbert Lee Gingell
11th October 2004

Any Gingells out there know if there is a coat of arms for the Gingell name? There are lots of coats of arms that have no meaning in their make up, but it would be nice to know if we do have a real one. Many thanks, Lee Gingell.

Hi, just looking through the Gingell history - what a big family it is.

In reply to Andrea, people are constantly getting my name wrong to the point where I have given up trying to correct them, I also have a solution to your staying single just marry one of the Gingells that have signed the guestbook you don't have to get rid of the great name! x

Myra Ryan
5th October 2004

I am looking for a Joseph Gingell who would have married a Mary in the 1820s probably at Hawkesbury Upton in Gloucestershire. I have Henry, her son's baptism with Mary Gingell registered as his mother and finding her alone on all the censuses had assumed he was illegitimate! BUT when I purchased a copy of his marriage he gives his father as Joseph Gingell, deceased !!.BUT I can't find a Joseph anywhere (Mary would only have been 18 when she had Henry). As Henry had his mother and grandmother living with him in 1861 I have been able to go further back to Thomas Gingell b 1784, Grittleton, Wiltshire who married Elizabeth Hodges 1804. His father was Richard Gingel who married Ann (Hannah) Watts 1768, Grittleton, Wiltshire. Would love to hear from anyone related or with information.

Philip James Gingell

I have been viewing the website for a number of years and have seen a tremendous growth in the website. Amazing that there are over 10, 000 of us worldwide. I was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1950. My Grandfather William George Gingell came to this country in the late 1800's. My father Earl Gingell had one brother named Russell George Gingell. I see that my cousin Russell Ernest William Gingell has contributed to this website. I had one sister named Sheila Gingell (Died 1982 age 44). I am married to Joen Gingell (nee Joen Forrest). We have one son Jason Gingell, born in 1979. We currently live in a small village called Canborough, Haldimand County, Ontario.

3rd August 2004

I have over some years now thought that the Gingell name was rare, but after moving around the country and parts of the world I find that there are many more than I thought. With the help of Craig's website I have found that I come from a large family. I have added to my family tree and it's been fun and interesting.

Nicole Jean Gingell
11th July 2004

Hi, I have been looking for my father, and half siblings. I have been checking out this website, and have found a few things out, but I still can't find them. My father's name is Ronald Linnwood Gingell, the brothers that I knew of are Roan Gingell and Clancy Gingell. I found out from this website that I also have two older siblings, Robert Duane Gingell and Rhonda Lynn Gingell. Also a younger sibling Audrey Jeanne Gingell. I would very much like to find my brothers and sisters- my father doesn't want to be found, I'm almost sure of that. The more I find out about him, I'm not sure I even want to find him. But if anyone can help me find my brothers and sisters I would be forever grateful. For anyone that does have information about my siblings or father I can be reached by mail. Thank you again.

Esme Harriet Brown

I have discovered on the LDS website, information submitted since 1992 by an LDS church member concerning my branch of the GINGELLs. I don't know where they obtained the info, but unfortunately it is full of spelling mistakes for names and also incorrect assumptions about as yet unproved births etc. i.e. IT IS WRONG!!! I wanted others to be warned about this.

Ruth Harmon

Hi, I am the grand daughter of Pearl Mae Gangell born in New Marlborough, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, United States, who was the grand daughter of William Gingell born in Wiltshire, England. I've not done much research on my Gangell-Gingell roots as yet. I found this site quite by accident today and am really pleased with what I see so far! I will return soon and often. Thanks for a great site.

Patricia Anne Gingell
19th April 2002

This is amazing, I never thought that there were so many Gingells. I am the daughter of Joseph Clement Gingell, Sr, I have two sisters, Deborah Leigh Gingell, Ann Marie Gingell and one brother, Joseph Clement Gingell, Jr. I am so glad I found this site!

Teresa Petrina Gingell

My maiden name is Gingell. I was born and still live in North East Lincolnshire. I have a younger sister called Amanda Jayne Gingell who also lives in the same area. My father's name is Peter Gingell, born 1936 in London. He had a twin sister called Ann Gingell and still has a elder sister called Pamela M. Gingell. They were all evacuated in the Second World War to Marlborough, Wiltshire. My father lives in West Sussex.

My daughter, Sharon Gangell discovered this site only yesterday. What a find!! My husband Neil Gangell's g-g-g-grandfather was William Gingell born 1778 at Grittleton, Wiltshire, son of Walter Gingell and Ruth Wheeler, married 1756. William Gingell arrived in Australia as a Royal Marine on the Calcutta in 1803, to found a settlement at Port Phillip Bay and later at Sullivans Cove, Tasmania in 1804. We have quite a lot of information from Tasmania but would like to hear from anyone who may be able to help. eg descendants from William Gingell's sister, Mary Gingell. I visited Wiltshire in 1989 and have photos of the church, houses and castle in Grittleton. Would love more information. Many thanks.

Alexander Nicholas Gingell
17th January 2002

Would like to get in touch with grandchildren or closer relatives of my grandfather's brothers George Vincent Charles Gingell (Jiji) and Joseph Mary Charles Lawrence Gingell (Sosi) both born in Malta. George Vincent Charles Gingell and his wife Praessede Spiteri had three sons Joseph Mary Paul Anthony Gingell, John and Teddy who were also born in Malta. John had a daughter Anita. Joseph Mary Charles Lawrence Gingell (Sosi) was in his young days a Leiutenant in the American Air Force. His wife was Marie ... and had adopted a girl Dorothy Gingell. Please get in touch.

June Gingell

Hi, what a fabulous site, I was adopted at Halifax in 1955, on my original birth certificate I was named as June Gingell, my adoptive parents renamed me Janet Forbes. My Mother was Janet Shirrd Gingell and her maiden name was Shirrd, the address on the birth cert was 86 Broadfield Drive, Leyland. I had a half Brother who would have been 11 years old in 1955. I am desperate to find my Mother and Brother, I do not hold any grudges towards being given away but need to know my background to fill an empty hole! Please can any one help? I believe my Father may have been an American Service man.

It's great to have a Gingell website. It has taken me a year to sign on properly, but I am now ready and desperate to find Gingell ancestors. Does anyone know of Edward Gingell, born Edmonton, Tottenham on 21st October 1886 - he lived in West Ham and then Leigh-on-Sea, Essex for a lot of his life.

Geoff Thursfield

Hi. I am looking for my grandfather Alexander Ralph Gingell's descendents. He died in 1978. His father was William John Gingell, he was born in 1870, his father was Thomas Gingell and his wife was Elizabeth Monk. I know my grandfather was born at 14, Mill Lane, Warmley and his mother was Rhoda Ann Bush. Any info would greatfully received.

Sam Mossop

Sonia Diane Brown
3rd June 2001

Hi, I am looking for any Gingells that were born in Nympsfield, Gloucestershire. I have been tracing my tree and my mothers side goes back into the Gingells, I have done a lot of research and have managed to get back to William Gingell, born 1818, as far as I know he was born in Nympsfield, but can find no proof of this, as yet. I do know he was a carpenter and dies in 1900 in Nympsfield of cancer of the face, but I can find no trace of his marriage to Hannah Bushell. If anyone has any information they think will help, please e-mail me, I will be very greatful. Also if I can help anyone with my info please let me know. Great site and as soon as I can complete this branch I will let you have all the info to add to it.

Andrea Gingell
19th May 2001

I was amazed to find this website dedicated to all things 'Gingell'! Can I just ask - does anyone have the same problem as me? People just cannot pronounce your name correctly! I used to say I couldn't wait to get married, but finding this site has made me proud to be a Gingell, inspite of the fact that nobody can say my name, and I'll happily stay single forever!

Doreen Ford
16th May 2001

Is there a male Gingell descended from George Henry Gingell born circa 1801 in Bremhill, Wiltshire (married Elizabeth Pegler) who would consider being DNA tested as my brother and I believe we are "blood related" to the Gingell line, but have no other way to prove it!!!

Deborah Grace Gingell
29th April 2001

Congratulations Craig for establishing such a wonderful connection to the past, present and future. I enjoy reading all the information that has been submitted. I am looking forward to contacting my relatives that live in Malta. Fondly, Debbie.

Brian Pankhurst
10th April 2001

Hi, I came across your site quite by chance and the name rang a bell. My Grandfather worked with a Samuel Gingell on the steam railways in the mid 1950's, based in London, England. I have a photograph but your form will not support attachments. I couldn't find any reference to him in your database but I know nothing more about him than his name. Interesting site!

Sami Stephen Gingell
7th April 2001

Helllo! I didn't actually think that there would be a site just for GINGELLS!!!!! What a great site, but how do I add or change some information on the site about myself, brother and sister. Thank you.

Gaye Bateman
27th March 2001

Hi! This is great. I have a g-g-g Grandfather William Gingell. Went to Australia and then to Utah. Married Mary Ann Woodhams. They had 12 children. He was from Wiltshire, England. Born 25th November 1812. Anyone with more information about my Gingell family before that I would love to hear from. Thanks a bunch. Thank you for starting this web page. Gaye.

Michael Wynford Gingell
12th March 2001

Hi all. Just wondered if anyone has come across a William Henry Paginton Gingell born around 1855 in Westrop, just outside Corsham, Wiltshire. His mother is down on his birth cert as Louisa Gingell, but there is no father. Any info would be appreciated. Regards Mike.

Steve Osborne
12th March 2001

Does anyone know the whereabouts of a Trevor Gingell, born 1965 and was at the Royal Hospital School (1976 - 81) ? I last saw him in the Park Gate area near Fareham, Hampshire and believe he's still in that area.

Margaret Laird
12th March 2001

What a wounderful site. MY GG Grandfather on my mothers side was a Gyngell. His name was Henry Grantly Wheeler Gellini Gyngell. According to his wedding certificate he was born in Guildford, Surrey, England. He came to Australia in aprox 1882 when he jumped ship in Sydney, New South Wales. He also lived in Queensland and Tasmania. He married a Kate Whitton and they had six children. Arthur Gyngell, Myrtle Gyngell, Ivy Lewis Gyngell (my Grandmother), Pearl Gyngell, Francis James Eric Gyngell and Lewis Oswald Gyngell. I would love to know more about the Gellini name as we thought Gyngell was Welsh. But there looks as if there is an Italian conection. I have a lot of photos of this family and will put them on your site.

John David Leahy

My interests are with Dinah Gingell, born 1805 in Wroughton, Wiltshire. She had 4 children but remained unmarried. Children baptised Gingel Palmer.

Regarding the photo - - we can name the 2 females, back row standing, 2nd from right is JULIA, the female 2nd from right sitting is EMILY. I think the man sitting on the left is JOHN, I met him later in life. I also think the one sitting on the right is HARRY or HENRY.

Timothy John Gingell

Great improvement in the site Craig. Simple, straightforward and strangely compelling! My father has got hooked, and I had a great laugh at the IDEA of Gingellville! Keep up the good work.

Elizabeth Rhian Williams
22nd November 2000

We think this site is really brilliant - well done Craig. We are still looking for more GYNgells - in particular a Frederick Gyngell who told the 1881 census that he was born in Chippenham, Wiltshire in 1847/8. We simply cannot find his birth certificate and are getting quite disheartened ! By 1881 he was living in Kingston-Upon-Hull with his wife Sophie Crozier (formerly Crozier) and children Ada Elizabeth Gyngell 4, Hannah Maria Gyngell 6 and William Henry Gyngell 10.

John Rowland Gingell
19th November 2000

Can anyone place the John Gingell who shows up in the UK 1861 census as a Baker at Gaston Green, Little Hallingbury, Essex. His wife's name was Mary Ann. Also the Gingell of "Gingell and Brown" Wine importers and Spirit Merchants Trading at Chipping Ongar and Brentwood, Essex, England.

C. Magnusson
10th November 2000

I have no connection what so ever to the Gingells. Still, I have looked at your pages several times ... because this site really rocks. Very good design and the presentation of the people and places are really top class! I also like the idea of covering one surname worldwide.

Oliver Charles Gingell
4th November 2000

Cool, but how do I put my name on the site?

Michael Jonathan Gingell
28th October 2000

Hi there, I am a student at the University of Sheffield, but I come from Willingale, Essex, as do my parents. I looked for any Gingells that I know in the list on the left of the screen, but could find none. If it would help, I could give you the names of a lot more Gingells to add to the list. We have a Gingell family tree dating back to the 1700's (I think that is about the earliest date) hanging up on the wall at home. Perhaps I could help?

Bill Pryde
8th September 2000

Further to my query of 19 May 1999, I was just checking out a genealogy website today and plugged in a couple of names from my family tree. One of the solutions that came up was the FamilySearch site with about a half dozen answers. One of them was a marriage of John PRIDE and Mary GINGELL, 27 Jun 1814, in Minchinhampton, Gloucester, England. I have been trying to find a link between my father's family and the Gingell family but this one seems unreal. My father's family seems to be centred in the Borders area of Scotland. This marriage is in Gloucester, a fair distance away. However, I have been unable to trace the PRYDE (PRIDE) name back into the early 1800's/late 1700's in the Borders area, so it might be possible that the family originated in England and some or all of it moved to Scotland. Can anybody shed any light on this PRIDE/GINGELL marriage?

Diana Keen
2nd September 2000

I am helping a friend, June Elizabeth Gumm Willetts, to research her Gingell ancestors. June Elizabeth Gumm's mother was Lily May Gingell, born 13th June 1909 in Calne. who married Hector John Gumm. Lily May Gingell's parents were Job Gingell, born 1873, and Lily Elizabeth Silk, born 31st August 1876 in Calne and married 9th August 1897 in Calne. Lily May Gingell had a brother Charles Edward Leslie Gingell born 24th December 1901 and a sister Gladys Lily Gingell who married Henry Bull. Job Gingell's parents were John Gingell, born 1838 in Studley, and Mary Ann Mail, born 1839, who married in 5th November 1859. John Gingell's parents were Jonas Gingell, born 28th March 1808, and Mary Ann Smith. June Elizabeth Gumm would love to hear from anyone researching this branch of the family.

Hi, everyone, you all have made my life a lot better, now that I know I'm not the only one with the Gingell blood in my veins, and that there are good people related to me, even though I don't know all of you, you are family, and I love you all. If anyone can help, I'm looking for my brothers and father, his name is: Ronald Linnwood Gingell, and the boys are Roan Gingell and Clancy Gingell. I've been looking for them my whole life, and would love to find out anything about them. Well, thanks and I hope your lives are great!:)

Michael Charles Gyngell
30th November 1999

Quite staggering to see all these Gyngell / Gingells in one spot. It seems that through this site I have discovered my dad's half sister. So a very useful and powerful force for good. I'm still trying to find a long lost branch of the family called Jeffrey Gyngell. He was born and adopted in South Wales in 1961 so of course his name would have changed but if he is out there looking for his roots then could he please contact me. His mother, my Auntie, would so love to find him and for him to know that she did not want to give him up.

Hi out there. Does any one know anything about a Henry Gingell who married a Jane Walters around the 1870's. They came from South Wales somewhere around Llandovery / Lampeter area. They had at least one son - Morgan Gingell who was born in 1893 - Morgan Gingell was my great grandfather. Any info would be great. Regards, Mike.

Michael Charles Wildey Sinstadt

I have spent 25 years on and off tracing the Wildey name. Any info or if you would like same please email. We are descended from Thomas Wildey who formed the oddfellowship of the USA.

Stuart Smith

One of my wife's ancesters is an Ann Gingell who married a Joshua Patmore in Australia in 1756. Ann Gingell is reported to be the daughter of Walter Gingell and Ruth Wheeler. But an other branch of her family is decended from a William Gingell (later GANGELL) William Gingell along with a twin sister Mary Gingell was born 4th November 1778 in Grittleton, Wiltshire. William Gingell and Mary Gingell's parents were a Walter Gingell and Ruth Wheeler who were married 1756, Stanton St Quintin, Wiltshire. I also understand that there were other children from this marriage. William Gingell enlisted in the Royal Marines 23rd April 1798 at Bradford-on-Avon and later sailed to Australia. Help.

Hi my name is Teresa, my mothers name is Pauline Anne Gingell, out of curiosity, whilst on the internet, I put in the name Gingell and came across this fantastic website. My mum is from a large Gingell family all living in the Southampton area (England). We would love to hear from anyone.

Brilliant web-site the best that I have seen !!!

Paul Andrew Gingell
29th September 1999

I am Paul Gingell (my mother's maiden name is Bond) and I come from a large family of Gingells living in England, Gibraltar and Australia. From what I can gather the name originated in the West Country and spread due to the maritime traditions of the west. A great number of Gingells come from British sailors (as my branch did) who left Britain for the commonwealth colonies. In Gibralter's Trafalger cemmetary there is a Gingell who died in the Battle of Trafalgar. My surname is pronounced "Jingle" and I would be interested in any Gingells' emails.

Roger Mervyn Gingell

I am Peter John Gingell's (who has commented earlier in this guestbook) older brother. I have just found this website and look forward to communicating with other members of the worldwide Gingell Clan. I was born in Maesteg in 1950, joined the RAF in 1973 left after 22 years service and now reside in a little village in Glamorgan called Eglwys-Brewis situated between LLantwit Major and St Athan near Cardiff.

Heidi Gingell
10th August 1999

I am very surprised at the amount of Gingells in the world. I am Heidi Gingell living in Ireland. There are not many Gingells in Eire. We emigrated to Ireland in 1973 my father came from Wales originally from a village near Cardiff. We have relations all over England and also Wales. My father was Dilwyn Gingell. His brothers were Derrick Stanley Gingell deceased, Lionel W. Gingell and sister Averil M. Gingell. I do not know much more information as I have not met them but would love to know more information. Thank you, Heidi Gingell

Lyle Lynn Gingell

I would like to know if any Gingells in the Wiltshire area of England might be able to help me find information about a William Gingell born 25th November 1812 or any of his progenitors. He was convicted of some kind of crime and sent to Australia and I can't find any information about him. Anybody out there have any ideas?

Kaz Gingell
18th July 1999

I can't believe there are so many fellow Gingells across the world. Its scary to think there might be clones of my brother out there !!!

I came across by chance yesterday. I immediately contacted my parents in Hazel Grove, England and brother in Dulwich, England to let them know about this great site. I look forward to submitting my family details and perhaps the chance to contact relatives I didn't know I had. Thanks.

Clinton Charles Gangell

I've started to enter info on my Gingell-Gangell family. I have about 400 people. It will take me awhile. Albert A. Gingell of Winsted, I can help you a lot with your family. Till later, Clint.

Clinton Charles Gangell
6th June 1999

I've just found this web site. It's great, I've been researching my Gingell/Gangell family for several years. My 3rd Greatgrandfather is Robert Gingell, born 16th February 1792, in England, he married Sarah Fryars, in Highworth, Wiltshire, England on 6th November 1824, had three sons born in Highworth, Richard C. Gingell, John Gingell and William Gingell. A forth son Robert Gingell, Jr was born at sea, about 1830. He died 10th November 1835, in Raynham. The family emigrated about 1830. Need help with Highworth area Gingells. Hoping to hear from someone with info on my England Gingell line. Till later Clint.

Bill Pryde
30th April 1999

Maybe somebody here can solve my mystery. I have an old family bible but I'm unable to link the names in it to the family names I know. The first entry in it records the gift of the bible to Mary REEVE from her grandfather John REEVE in 1760. Then further in, it records the birth of two GINGELL boys, Thomas, 4th December 1717, and James, 25th April 1720. It states that Thomas is the son of James GINGELL and his wife Mary. There is also an entry regarding Mary GINGELL and the date 5th January 1733. (I can't make out what the event was.) Note that these dates are many years before the gift-giving mentioned. Later on in the bible, the births of six REEVE children are recorded, ranging from 1771 to 1782. I suspect the bible originated in the British Isles. I have the names BLACKMAN and THORNTON from England (I believe), MARSHALL from Ireland and several others, including PRYDE and OLIVER from Scotland identified in my family tree. There is a suspected link between BLACKMAN and REEVES (note the added "S") but nothing to GINGELL. Anybody know of any connections?

Esme Harriet Brown
24th April 1999

Does anyone have info about the origins of James Gingell and Sarah ... - parents of James Gingell (bap 14th October 1804 Dartford, Kent?) The IGI for Kent has no mention of them prior to the baptism of a child, Mary Gingell, 29th March 1803, also Dartford. Where were they married and where did they come from??

Gordon Caruana Dingli
21st April 1999

What an excellent site. I was fascinated to see how your family is spread around the world. I live in Malta and my grandfather Robert Caruana Dingli was the younger brother of Edward Caruana Dingli who married Charlotte Marietta Giovanna Falzon who was the daughter of Aloysia Maria Carmela Benedetta Gingell and Vincent Falzon. Both Edward Caruana Dingli and Robert Caruana Dingli were prominent Maltese artists who were also the first teachers at the Malta School of Art. I will be pleased to send you the Caruana-Dingli family tree when it is completed.

Does anyone have any information on William Gingell, a builder who died before 1883, and had one child William Gingell, beer retailer at Edmonton, Tottenham, Middlesex, born circa 1837. Many thanks; this info is for a new Gingell contact. P.S. The site is still looking good, Craig.

Fiona Maria Gingell

Hi. It was good to see so many Gingell's about. And I thought that we were few and far between ! I live in Colchester in Essex but was born in Sarisbury Green, near Southampton in Hampshire. My Grandfather, Frederick John Gingell, was headmaster of the local school but was originally from the Rhonda Valley in Wales. Does anyone out there know our side of the family?

Carol Davis
9th January 1999

Hello, Thanks Craig for letting me know about this site. I know very little about my mother's family as her mother died two weeks after she was born in Boreham Wood, Hertfordshire, England and she was sent to an orphanage at age four after being looked after for four years by a neighbour. My grandmother was Ellen Maud Gingell and would have been born about 1891. Her father was John Gingell and according to her marriage certificate was a House decorator (journeyman). My grandmother Ellen Maud Gingell married on 13th September 1913 to George Kirby of Boreham Wood. John Gingell had two other children as far as I know Caroline Helena Gingell and Sidney Walter Gingell. That's all I know! Anyone able to help further ?

Albert A. Gingell
6th January 1999

Hi! It's just me again with one more quick thought. My dad Arnold Gingell used to tell me stories about some relatives that worked on a chain that was used in the Hudson River during the Revolutionary War to cripple enemy ships coming down the river. Anyone have any knowledge about this ? Al Gingell.

Albert A. Gingell

Hi everyone.....Happy New Year! I've just talked to Craig on Net Meeting. It's a great way to talk on the net without having to type so much. Checkit out. If you have a newer computer, you probably already have it installed. You just need a microphone and you're all set. Happy Hunting....Sandy

George Daniel Gingell
16th October 1998

Hello Craig Mark Peter Gingell, I received your email last night with the information about this site. Did it just move ? I am just now getting started on the www so it will be a while before I get this figured out. I have been on email only for quite a while. I have not had a chance to up date my family file information for a while yet. It is still on the old 8086 machine in the basement. I will send an updated file after I get it on the new setup. I may be working at a local Family History Center of the LDS Church here in Washington, D.C. area part time later in the year. That should help me get up to speed on some of this hi-tech stuff. I haven't had a chance to look over the site yet, but my first impression is that it is going to be great and a real handy resource. Only wish that I had thought of it myself :^)

Thomas James Gingell

Hi, So nice to meet you all. I find it very interesting to read the family infomation given by you. Does anyone know what happened to Fanny Haines who was in the Union Workhouse, Calne, Wiltshire in 1881 age 44. She was the wife of Jonas Gingell who dissapeared sometime between 1867 -1871. I am also trying to trace ancestors William George Frank Gingell born 18th January 1895, baptised 21st June 1895 in St Johns Parish Church, Devizes, Wiltshire whose father was Albert Gingell, and mother Emma Wiltshire. Good luck to you all in your research, Chris.

I have a photograph of my G-Grandfather James Gingell born Bradford Leigh, 14th December 1846. Also a photo of his daughter Kate Gingell born 17th February 1876. Has anyone got a connection.

Craig, Had a great time visiting with you at the Gingell reunion! So glad that you, Brian William Gingell and James Neilson Gingell could all make it ! Also wanted to say "thank you" to Geoffrey Winston Cole for his research work on the James Gingell and Elizabeth Greenman family tree. It's fantastic that you have been able to go back three more generations. Maybe, with your help, all of these Gingell families will be united into one BIG happy family of Gingells. Thank you so very much. Happy Hunting, Sandy.

Bernadette Mary Gingell
16th July 1998

My sister-in-law Jane Homewood who married my brother James Gerard Gingell told me about the site. I am delighted to have found so many other Gingells.

Jacqueline Grace Gingell
15th July 1998

Hi Craig, my dad is your dad's cousin (Derek John Gingell in Tasmania, Australia) and they have apparently been in touch re the Gingell family tree. Dad gave me this site address so I thought I'd take a look. All I can say is, WOW! I think I've just found a new interest. Well done.

Andrew Murray Higgs

I thought I'd better register for the minor names hiding in the branches of the tree. I need to check the Higgs in the book my father has to see the connection. Andy.

Jason Walter Joseph Winzoski

My mother is suffering from an illness called primary pulmonary hypertension. She has asked me to find out if this condition has affected any other Gingells and if there is a treatment or a known cure. As of now only three treatments are known to work with no cure in sight. Even info if it is a genetic disease would be appreciated. Son of a Gingell, Manitoba, Canada.

Hi again all. If anyone would like information on any of the Gingells I found on the 1881 census for Kent, England, please feel free to e-mail me !! All of them show places of birth as somewhere in Kent or London, but there is one family from Bremhill, Wiltshire.

Enid Joan Crews

I have just come across your fabulous web site and I am thrilled. My mother was a Gingell, she was born in Bath, Somerset, but the family comes from around the Corsham / Bradford-on-Avon area of Wiltshire. I have traced my Gingell Line back to 1780 when William Gingell married Jane White in Langley Burrell, Wiltshire.

Peter John Gingell

Robert Duane Gingell
27th April 1998

I am very excited about finding this site. I am just dabbling with the capabilities of the internet. I was actually looking to see if I saw any specific Gingells. luck. Anyway, I don't know alot about the Gingell history. I do know that my family history goes back to coming over on a ship from England (not sure where) to the Washington area. Specifically, Potomac, Maryland. and the Georgetown district of Washington. For various reasons, some of the family rooted in Virginia. I suppose I have alot of family I have never met, my curiosity certainly is rising. My great uncle, in recent years supposedly completed our family tree dating back at least to our arrival in the U.S. I think I will try to see if I can retrieve a copy, see who might be related. Thanks and take care.

Don Lee Gingell

Have information on a George Frederick Gingell and his wife, Olive Amelia White, who came to Canada from Essex, England, around 1910, and settled in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada.

I really appreciated the alphabetical listing of Gingells.

How about a page that shows family trees, so that we can see how we connect up with other Gingell lines ?

I think that this is a great idea. I really hope to learn more about the Gingell family outside of Utah and Wyoming.

I am really thrilled. I have been searching on the Gingell for these last thirteen years. I have managed to draw a family tree of all the Gingells born in Malta since 1806 when my Great Great Great Grandfather Edward Gingell settled in Malta. I do not know his origins, however. I know of three uncles of my father that had migrated to the United States in the first years of this century - George Vincent Charles Gingell, Joseph Mary Charles Lawrence Gingell and Alfred Joseph Charles Gingell - the latter returning to Malta in 1958 and died there. My son-in-law Paul J. Galea has been in contact with you previously. In due course I shall put on further details regarding my research. Keep it up.

I was very interested to hear from you about the Gingell family genealogy. My father, is currently attempting to connect our family line back to a Michael de Gingdale, but is missing one link. The person he is missing is a William Gingell whom I believe is three generations later. I would appreciate any information that anyone has on this line.
