George Gibson b abt 1822-3 South Shields - getting further back
« on: Saturday 20 March 21 11:56 GMT (UK) »
I have been in pursuit of the Gibsons for some time now and haven't been able to get further back.


20th February 1842
Parish of Jarrow in the county of Durham
George Gibson, Minor, Batchelor, Waterman, South Shields
Groom's Father: Charles Gibson, Waterman
Mary Ann Wake, Full age, Spinster, South Shields
Bride's Father: John Wake, Tailor/Sailor
Witnesses: John Wake & William Grieves

I fear the father 'Charles Gibson' is a red herring, unless anyone can find me any records that say differently.

According to the 1851 census, George Gibson was 28, so born 1822-23.  The only baptism I can find is as follows:

16th November 1823 St Hilda's, South Shields
George Gibson, son of Isabella Gibson (single woman)


I have come across this family group:

1851
East Holborn, South Shields
Thomas Gibson, Head, 51, Grocer
Andrew Gibson, Brother, 44, ??
Janet Gibson, Sister, 52
Isabella Gibson, Sister, 49
Jane Gibson, Sister, 47

All born South Shields

HO107; Piece: 2400; Folio: 241; Page: 14


1841 West Holborn, South Shields
Thos Gibson, 40, Green Grocer, Y
John Gibson, 20, ??
Andrew Gibson, 30, ??
Jennett Gibson, 40
Isabella Gibson, 36

 HO107; Piece: 297; Book: 15; Folio: 42; Page: 16


At this moment in time, I have no idea if this is even the right family for George Gibson, let alone Isabella.  Any help or suggestions for other links would be gratefully received.


Many thanks,
Emma

Thank you for taking the time to look!  However, I think that George married an Alice Maughan in 1836 and went on to have a family, including children Charles and Dorothy.

Many thanks again.
