Hello!
May I stick in my oar, and ask you to look at my family history blog at www.franciswright.wordpress.com  - please scroll down until you find the Beaumonts, and you might find the Gisborne family interesting on the way. In the mid 19th century, a daughter of John Sacheverell Gisborne married one Guillaume (William) Beaumont. According to censuses, Guillaume/William was born in 'foreign parts' and/or France in about 1785. Legend has it that as a child he was an escapee from the Frech Revolution, but as he was 'a British subject' that doesn't really hold water as far as I know. He later opened a school in Lancashire.
The Gisbornes were immensely well-connected in Derbyshire and Staffordshire, and in the last couple of weeks I have reached the conclusion that Estelle Beaumont's family was probably from the same county. Maybe from somewhere like Barrow Hall in Barrow-on-Trent (a Mrs Beaumont can be found there,) or maybe from Derby itself. One doesn't need to be Sherlock Holmes to work out the  marriages that linked property and land - and maybe wealth ...
I must confess I was surprised to see how geographically close a Beaumont family actually was to the Gisbornes in Derbyshire, and I wonder if maybe the puzzle might be a bit closer to solving, thanks to your posting here.
Happy to exchange ideas with you if you like. Please feel free to get in touch.
Best wishes,
Francis Wright

Hi

Only just found this conversation. Ethel was my grandmother's niece and I know a few bits and pieces about the Beaumonts.

Thanks
