BASI Tree Added

After another Guild Newswatch watcher sent me a thank you notice after the funeral of Lilian May Gammon in the Basingstoke Gazette, I quickly pulled together another family tree. Although I am not 100% sure, Lilian’s husband Dennis seems to be from a family that I traced back to Swingfield in Kent.You can find more information here:

BREN Family Tree Added

Thanks to a Guild of One Name Studies newswatch watcher, I received a copy of a funeral notice in the Billericay & Wickford Gazette of 14 Nov 2012 today. Using the names mentioned in the notice, I was able to pull together a small family tree. Phyllis Evelyn GAMMON passed away recently in Brentwood, Essex. Her husband was Frederick C B (Beau) GAMMON who was born in Reigate, Surrey, England. Only the names appear in the published family tree because the people concerned are still living. She was 96 years old when she died. My condolences to the family. If anyone has more information about Beau and his parents, I would be glad to hear from you.

There is not much more information on the main GAMMON site, but you can find a link there to the family tree I published:

MIKE Family Tree

Quite a long time ago, I received a query from Mike Gammon about his ancestors in Hampshire, England. I have printed off a whole heap of census pages related to this family, and have begun compiling a tree (also with the help of the tree that Mike sent me).

It may take some time to finish all of the data entry, and then publish the family group page. In the mean time, you can see how far I have got with the family tree here:

Another connection to the MARK Family Tree found

On the Rootsweb message board, I recently tried to help with a query about James Prickett GAMMON, who seems to go missing in London in the early 1900s. I wasn’t able to help much with the disappearance, but using the information from this contact, I was able to connect James Prickett GAMMON back into the MARK family tree, in Oystermouth, Glamorganshire, Wales. I am currently gathering a list of Gammon entries in the Glamorgan parish registers, and hope to publish an update to the MARK family group page soon.

TYNE Family Tree Added

This is a very small tree consisting of one marriage – thanks to a GoONS marriage challenge. In 1853 Robert MELLISH married Emma GAMMON in Tynemouth, Northumberland, England. Her father was listed as Henry, a tile maker. Are you connected to this family? Then please get in touch.
