My Great Grandparents came from the Leicestershire village of Gumley. Am interested in all information anyone is willing to share on the Jelley family of Gumley, and will trade and supply the genealogical material I already have.

Hi John,

I'm more than willing to share any info. I have got on Jelley's from Gumley. I think there are some families originally from Gumley now living in Rugby/Lutterworth area. I have trawled through the Leics. Record Office a few times and there are literally hundreds of Jelleys to sift through !!

Regards

Mark Jelley

Surnames: Jelley, Mawby
Hi - I could use some help sorting out the Gumley Jelleys. My ancestor, George Jelley b. 8 April 1832 was the son of Samuel and Mary. He and his brother, John, married Mawby sisters from Arnesby. George married Elizabeth (Betsy) and John married Lucy. Elizabeth Jelley died in 1873. Afterward their family splintered. Her oldest son, Remus, had emmigrated with her parents, Simon and Mary Mawby, to Ohio. About 1882 the other sons, John and Walter Jelley also emmigrated. A younger sister, who was raised by one of George's sisters - Sarah Jelley - married to Richard Burnnett emigrated in 1908 with her husband, daughter, and George Jelley. George died in Michigan in 1915.
So many of the Jelleys in Gumley seemed use the same first names with no middles names that I find it difficult to separate them.

Hello
My great grandfather john joseph allen was married to Jane possibly jelley. They lived at foxton locks in 1891 when she was 42
In 1871 James jelley aged 48 was the lockeeper
By 1901 Jane jelley was living in foxton village-----i was at the house yesterday but no jelley family there now
Beryl jelley lives in arthingworth and I left a note for her yesterday

I'm pretty sure the Jane married to John Joseph was a jelley and poss a sister of James jelley is they met at foxton locks

The jelleys seem to have left gumley but beryl of arthingworth has relatives in MKT harborough
