Hello Roy ,I have James Drake Gill born circa 1814 St Pancras London , I have just received his Marriage Cert which lists his Father as John Lamoureux Gill (Stonemason) ,his Mother was supposed to be The Hon Anne Elizabeth Drake ,I have searched endlessly for john and anne ,and can find no birth information for James Drake Gill either . I am trying of course to go back further with no luck ,would appreciate any help you might be able to give me , Oh it says that James was a native of Stonehouse Devon , He was married to Mary Elizabeth Bigg in 1841 Bedminster ,county of Bristol and Somerset .Regards Kaye Thiel

Hello, James Drake Gill is my 4x great grandfather. I'm sorry, but I don't have any info past his parent's names (in fact I didn't know Ann Elizabeth Drake was supposedly 'The Hon'! - I had her as plain old Mary Ann Drake) but I do have info on his and Mary Elizabeth Bigg's descendents etc. if you are interested. I would appreciate any info re. John & The Hon's marriage if you are willing to share.

Hi James Drake Gills Parents were James Lambroux Gill and Ann Drake The Hon is Family gossip i think ,but i could be wrong James and Ann listed on James D Gills Death cert ,and on his Marriage Cert his Father is John Lamoureux Gill ..LDS FICHE says James Lamborn Gill Married Ann Drake and says their son James Drake Gill died in 1881 that part is correct .But i think there are a lot of spelling mistakes made in the transcribing of old records .James/John 's parents were Nicholas Gill and Jane Lamoureux who married 02/02/1783 St George East Stonehouse Devon she was from a French Hugonaut Family (not correct spelling )sorry.I have a Photo of Mary Jane Gill and her Siblings if you are interested My Grt Grandmother was Martha Gill .I also have James Drake Gill's Will.And have taken photo of James Drake and Mary's Grave ,also Lydia's Grave,i would love to hear from you Felicity Kind Regards Kaye Perth WA
