Hello, everyone - this is my first posting here.
Family tradition has it that we are descended from the GILBERT family of Compton Castle, Devon, England.
I have only been able to work back as far as my gg-grandfather, Joseph GILBERT,
b. 1818, prob. Birmingham, Warwickshire, ENG
m. Mary Ann BIRT 16 Jul 1837 Edgbaston, Warwickshire, ENG.
Their son, William, b. 25 Feb 1839 Birmingham, ENG (my g-grandfather)
m. Eliza Wager TRANTER 9 April 1863 Southampton, Bruce Co., Ontario, Canada.
Joseph, Mary Ann their children (Wm., Herbert Alice E.) came to Toronto, Ontario, Canada abt. 1848, then moved to Southampton, Ontario abt. 1851.
I would love to hear from anyone with any info on this line, or the descendants of the GILBERT line of Compton Castle.
