Looking for any Gambles or Gambells.


I am researching the surname Gamble,which is my mother's family name.I have come across it spelt also as Gambell.

I have got back to my gt gt grandfather,who was William Henry Gambell,and was born in Brierley Hill.But I am stuck on his father Henry Gambell. I believe his wife was Maria (Nee Wood) but I cannot find a marriage.

A distant family member who has contacted me has suggested that the name might have originated in Ireland. Does anyone else who might be researching this name know if it has Irish roots?

Many thanks,
