John Gray would have been b.cir 1740-50 having Charles in 1783. His supposed wife Mary was reputedly also married to Fowk. (This Mary was Mary Tharp or Thorpe).

There is a marriage at Histon Cam in 1780 of a John Gray and a Mary Carter which might well be worth checking.

John Gray who married Mary Owens in 1801 sounds more like a possible brother of Charles ..... and there is an IGI reference for a John s/ John & Mary c.19.01.1780 Gamblingay.

Similarly there is an IGI reference for a Robart Gray s/o John & Mary c.08.10.1775 Gamblingay which may be worth checking as well, as its possible that this is the Robert who married Mary Leighton.

Now John Gray was apparently also married to an Ann, and tantalisingly, there are two IGI references which could prove to be their children: James Gray c.19.10.1783 Meppershall, and William Gray c.20.10.1779 Flitton With Silsoe Bdf.

Hi Mr Bish

Have sent a pm to you.

An65 - I need to check my records, but I am pretty sure I have looked at the Robart Gray from Gamblingay as a possible link to Mary Leighton but it seems Robart died quite young.  Will check my files to be sure.

Regards

Grayaust

Hi, I am new to this family tree business, but recently I found out that I am related to the Gray family from Isleham, Cambridge. My gt/gt/grandparents were Cornelius Bailey 1800 & Mary Beasant 1813 from Wooton Bassett. Wilts. My gt/grandparents were Thomas Shelton from Wolverhampton.Staffs & Elizabeth Bailey, who was sister to Jane Bailey who married William Elias Gray ( Tinker ) I believe my grandfather on my father's side Charles Oliver from Bridgnorth. Shropshire was a Tinsmith Tinker, so it looks as if 2 gypsy families merged. Is anyone out there in any way related, would like to hear from you.

Hi all you Gray descendants I have some information on some of the Grays but a lot of it has been compiled from posts such as these and my own notes, does any one know the correct surname of Elizabeth wife of  Thomas Gray c1740 as I have found a Mary wife of Thomas Gray in the IGI records,  being that they were Gypsies maybe Mary is the right name you all know how much these Gray's use to change there names the other possibility is Augustine Georgianna Elizabeth Ibry married to Thomas De Gray I know for sure that my g grand father often went by the name William Elias De Gray instead of Gray and so did some of his children

Hi,
If you have got as far as Founess Gray 1811 on Ancestry. Go to his profile, go right down on right hand side to where it says search the web for Founess Gray, it will bring up a long list of travelling gypsies. There you will find a load of information.
