    I have recently discovered the GIBLETT family amongst my Wedmore relatives. Has anyone any ideas on marriages for John 1662 - 1730 whose wife was Elizabeth 1665 - 1724 or his father Thomas 1679 who married Mary? born 1690?

    Hello Locksby,

    Where are these marriages likely to have taken place, please?

    There are a couple of marriages of Giblet(t) marriages in Wedmore on FreeREG

    Thomas Giblet of Meare married Ann Millard by licence 7 Nov 1787
    Edward Giblet married Elizabeth Banwell of Lympsham 30 Feb 1746/7

    Neither are what you want, maybe the Wedmore transcriptions are still ongoing, but it may be worth looking in Meare

    [edit] sorry there are actually 5 marriages in Wedmore, the other three are Giblett brides, still too late for you though, being in 1745/1764/1832

    I'm actually slightly confused by your dates :confused: --- perhaps I am being numerically challenged today, yesterday I failed in a task where I was supposed to decide which of two simple calculations were higher or lower :oops:

    a Thomas Giblet marr. Mary Odey of Mayre in Chedzoy 8 Jun 1708

    any use?

    oh, and quite a few Gibletts in Meare too

    Most probably Meare / Wedmore in Somerset.

    No, it's me who is numerically challenged!! Thomas 1679 is son of John 1662.

    Thomas Giblett 1679 Wedmore married Mary Unknown born 1690 so a 1708 marriage is a possibility. The direct line I have shows a son William born 1719 but he could have had earlier siblings. William was born in Meare and married Elizabeth Broome born 1725 on 25 July 1747 in Meare.

    I've a
    I've also got a John Giblett 1662-1730 who married an Elizabeth Unknown probably 1679. His father Hugh married twice to an Ellen and a Marjorie but I'm struggling with surnames for all of these ladies.
