Just browsing around and saw the GUMBLE surname. It rang a bell.

 A friend of mine, a teacher, lived in Hertfordshire during the 1970s. I think perhaps the school where she worked was in Enfield - hard to remember now.

They had children from a GUMBLE family in the school. I think they were quite a large extended family. I can vaguely remember the name Billy GUMBLE. The GUMBLEs were travellers, and mainly used to travel up and down the A1. Billy would appear in her class for a while, and then be gone, and my friend would hear that the trailers had been seen a few miles further up the A1. Then the children would be back, as that area seemed to be the base they always came back to.

Not sure if that helps anyone track any names down.

Best wishes,

Edwina  :)

PS. Just noticed Jackie's message mentioned Hoddesdon. That is where my friend lived, but I think she worked in the London Borough of Enfield.

Hi again,

Just remembered the other family name the Gumbles were related to is Spencer, they lived very, very close to the Gumbles on the Nazeing Road, in Dobbs Weir Essex on the Herts Essex boarder.
Although both famlies had caravans, they lived in houses for most of the year, the Gumbles lived on the Council Estate in Roydon and the Spencers lived in their private bungalow which had quite a lot of land. The Gumbles were short, dark hair and socky whereas the Spencers were tall, slim and blonde. I had hoped to find a school photo but sadly I don't have any class photo's. Regards Jackie

Hello, nice to see your posting.
I have a small amount of Gumble transcriptions that I gather with my other traveller transcriptions.  If you would like me to email them to you please let me know your email.  Happy New Year to everyone.

Regards
