William is not with his son Thomas in 1851 or 1861.

So far I can't find William in 1861 or a death that fits.

Can't find William in1861 and ne death reg either. I have also trawled through the images of the parish register for Stokesley looking a burials but cannot find a burial either.

Thanks Emeltee.

I can't see anything that fits even using Balmer.

Ag labs are out.

Thanks Geoff.

Looks like he is another of the family missing in the census.

Bulmer, Balmer - don't know what else to try.

Great Ayton PR's [2-3 miles NE of Stokesley]

William s/o Jeffrey Bulmer [Mason] Bap. 9 Apr 1793

Jeffrey possibly married Hannah Dickinson in 1790.

Could that Ann be this Hannah??
Thanks Geoff.

Should be Garton On The Wolds in that 1841 census.

That's the only Richard in 1841 who seems to fit.

Father as William a weaver is correct, however it's not 1825 and not Stokesley.

Age for Richard in 1851 census, shipping record and at death point to 1825.

Deaths Jun 1838 BULMER Mary [35] Stokesley 24 339

Is that William a weaver?

No help here re mother's name.

Death 1564/1857 BULMER Richard 32 Unk UNK b. York d. Vic.

If Richard the servant in 1841 is ruled out then we are still missing a Richard born abt 1825 in the 1841 census.

Baptism for any of these children?? Not on FreeREG.

Thanks Val.

The tree is mostly correct.

Don't think Richard died 26 Mar as that is the date of burial. Can't find a notice in Trove.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 22 Sep 1928 p.16
GRIBBLE.-September 19, 1928, at Calula private hospital, Clovelly, Mary Ann Elizabeth Gribble, dearly loved mother of Amy Palmer, Sackvllle-street, Fairfield, aged 80 years.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Fri 21 Sep 1928 p.11
GRIBBLE.-The Funeral of the late MARY ANN ELIZABETH, Widow of the late Rev. J. B. Gribble, will leave St. Jude's Church, Randwick, THIS FRIDAY, after service commencing at 2.30 p.m., for Waverley Cemetery. Motor Funeral.
WOOD COFFILL LIMITED, Motor Funeral Directors.

Looks to be the right marriage for Thomas.

Why Northallerton - not bride or groom's parish.
