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 (sometimes spelled SHEPHERD) in 1783. Children of Richard and Sarah GIBLETT were Ann (d.1787); John (woollen cloth manufacturer of Frome); Samuel; Thomas (married Isabella HOOPER); Mary (married James WEBSTER); Sarah (married George WEBSTER); Elizabeth.

Some members of this family were buried in Nunhead/Camberwell cemeteries, London. Private family letters indicate that 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.
