Hi Everyone, For a numbers of years now I have been trying to find out the birth date of ETHA GINGELL, well I've finally done it :)) She was born in the registration district of Dursley, Gloucestershire. Born 2nd September 1914, her mothers maiden name was MARSHALL, but apart from having the surname GINGELL, I have no other info on the parents. If there is anyone who can shed some light her parents or siblings, I would be eternally greatful. Regards to all, Sunny :)

Hi, I am looking for any info on George William Henry Gingell. He became my grandfather's uncle by marrying my grandfather's aunt. Her name was Annie Florence L. Collett she was born in 1889. They married 1909 in Bath. I am interested after seeing this site and just how well recorded the Gingells are. Please help.

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.

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]. Her half sister Sarah Idels/Idols married James Gingell born 1817. They lived in London. Anyone know anything about these people? Shane.

Wow. Never realised there were so many Gingells out there. Any Gingells in New Brunswick, Canada give us a call, and come over for a cold one. Had some relatives over from England in the early 70's when we lived in British Columbia. Cannot remember their names, but if you remember the visit, give us a shout. Terry.

Theresa Lampard

Hi, Trying to find out information about a Rose Randell Gingell who was my great grandma. All I know is she married my great granddad Francis William Lampard in 1908 and she was his 2nd wife. She I think had 2 sons one of which was my granddad Edward Mervyn Lampard b. 1910 and think the other son was Reg Lampard??....

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.

Sylvia Amelia Blacker

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.

30th December 2005

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

Hello everyone, even though I am not a Gingell now, my mum is so I feel part of this website which is good! So hello, to everyone who knows me!

Steven Hayward
1st October 2005

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.

Louise Horne

Louise Horne
19th September 2005

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.

Julie C.
9th September 2005

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. I am from Liverpool myself and had never heard of the name Gingell until I met my husband, what an interesting family history you all have. Look forward to hearing from any one who knows this branch of the Gingell family.

Carol A. Youngs
11th August 2005

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). Have also located their step-siblings, Audrey Jeanne Gingell and Nicole Jean Gingell. NOTE: Have again lost track of Audrey Jeanne Gingell and need to pass on important family news to her. If located, please have her e-mail contact info to me through

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 :)

Gordon Pearl Gyngell IV
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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!

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.

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.
