Hi can anyone please help? I'm struggling to confirm which Wilmot Gyles married Samuel Williams in 1801. Is it Wilmot born 1777 to John Gyles and Ann Launder or Wilmot born 1781 to Richard Gyles and Elizabeth Bennets
No sorry. (I'm working backwards on this one - my Wilmot is the one born to John and Ann a sibling of my 4X G GF Thomas Gyles b1784) There are no children born to Samuel and Wilmot on the St Ives database. Thanks for trying. I like to work sidewards and back sometimes as it can help to find others tracing the same tree.
Thanks for this, I knew I could rely on you -you're a star. This is what I have on Thomas Gyles - He was the son of John Gyles and Ann Lander (Launder?) and his siblings were Ann and Mary 1772, Ann 1774, Wilmot 1777, John 1779 and Elizabeth 1781 all born in St Ives. Thomas married Frances Harry in 1809 and had 2 childen (that I know of) Frances 1810 and Nancy 1812. Nancy married Edward Trevarthen in 1836 in St Clement had 6 children including Grace Harry Trevarthen 1856. They moved to Cardiff when she was a young child where she married Mark Banks and had Nancy Gyles Banks 1879 who was my great grandmother. Phew!!! hope you can fathom that lot out.

My "pennyworth": Samuel Gyles 1841 Census, St.Ives,aged 15. Brother William, sister Fanny. No father. Mother: Hannah 1786. Hannah-Anna-Joanna...? Also: Johanna Harry Gyles 1853 (or 4) St.Ives,1861 and 1871 Census. Father: William Harry Gyles 1816.
"Gyles" can sometimes be found under "Giles".
My interest in Giles stems from "John Williams 1796/daughter Hannah Giles Williams 1826"...but there may be no clear "link" to the subject of this posting.
