GIBLETT (Surname Saturday)

Family stories allege that our GIBLETT family originated in France with the surname 'DE GIBLETT'. My ancestor was Richard GIBLETT (born c1751 Frome, Somerset, England). He married Sarah SHEPPARD or SHEPHERD in 1783. Children of Richard and Sarah GIBLETT were Ann (d.1787); John (woollen cloth manufacturer of Frome); Samuel; Thomas (mar. Isabella HOOPER); Mary (mar. James WEBSTER); Sarah (mar. George WEBSTER); Elizabeth.

Can anyone confirm that some members of this family were buried in Nunhead/Camberwell cemeteries, London? Is there a connection between Richard GIBLETT of Frome and John GIBLETT who married Sarah WHITFIELD at St. Marylebone in London in 1793? Some of that family emigrated to Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia.
