I am just back from my Christmas holidays. Whilst I was away, I found a little bit of time here and there to process some old GoONS Newspaper Watch entries that had been sent to me over the years.
This one is for a Gammons family in Bedfordshire, UK. It starts with Benjamin C Gammons (b. 1922). His mother had Wiles as a surname. I am sure to find a connection with my other Bedfordshire trees, but unfortunately, there were two marriages between Gammons/Wiles in Bedfordshire in the same year. I need to get more detailed information about both those marriages before I can proceed further.
I received a Funeral Notice from another GoONS member recently, and pulled together as much of Denzil Raymond Gammons’s family as I could. More information can be found on my Gammon One Name website:

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:
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:
