Colleen, I note that you are looking for info. regarding William Gillbee. I am researching information regarding a Dr. William Gillbee who was born in 1825 and whose father was William, and his mother was Sarah Ward. This is all the information that I have regarding either William. I am curious to establish if there is a link with Walter Gillbee who emigrated to Australia in 1863.

Lynne My Gillbee was in the early 1700's in Ditton Wood Cambridgeshire. His great great grandson John Gilby immigrated to Queensland in the 1960's in around Ipswich and then headed to North Queensland.

Thanks anyway, will keep yours in mind

I am researching a Walter Gillbee b London in 1794.
He lived in Milton until 1852 when he migrated
with his wife Hannah Catchpole and children
who include George Henry, Deborah, Isobel, Mary and
Walter William to Victoria Australia.

I know his parents were Walter and Mary
but nothing more about them

George Henry Gillbee is my great great grandfather, but unfortunately I am unable to help you with information about Walter's parents.
I apologise for the incorrect date if emigration, I have confused it with George Henry's marriage date in 1862.

Dear Lynne

Nice to meet you. My email is
Let me know if you find anything. I have a little
bit about Walter and Hannah if you want it
but it is probably only stuff you have already.
Which child do you descend from. My husbands
mother was daughter of Charles and Agnes
Merifield who had a son Charles Henry Gillbee
who was her father.
