Thanks Ellie.

Oh. They are brothers. I wonder if they married on the same day.

Weston Colville
Married 2 Jun 1855 as David 23 lab son of Thomas lab to Emily Alcock 23 a servant of Horringer daughter of William lab. Wits John Barton & Esther Partridge Crame.


James is older so he may have married earlier. Someone or some site must have the Weston Colville PR.

Thanks Ellie.

Whoever transcribed the records (Probably in India or Philippines or ...) had no idea of NSW place names. It's actually Crookwell.

James is 20 Sep 1917 so an error there as well.

Goulburn Evening Penny Post - Thursday 27 September 1917
OBITUARY
On the 20th instant Mr James Gilby, who had been ailing for some time, died at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr John Willis of Crookwell. He was born at Weston Colville, Cambridgeshire, England and came to Australia in 1855. ...

Thanks Ellie.

So Ashley is on the border of the two counties.

Parish Records: Ann Baptised 16/03/1788 ? Weston Colville dau. of Joseph & Mary.
Parents Joseph GRAINGER & Mary TARVER or TALVER ??

Not sure if the '?' means the record is hard to read and date not definite.

Parish Records
Buried 04/02/1855 in Weston Colville as Ann aged 66.

Deaths Jun Qtr 1853
Gilbey Thomas Linton 3b 35[35]

A Thomas Gilby shown as being buried 26/06/1853 in Weston Colville aged 74.
