Notes for Elizabeth KNIBBS:


Mary Crandall's
excellent web site has reference to Elizabeth.
__________

I was fortunate to have the following information passed to me by Mary Crandall who has been able to see details from an old Gurney Family Bible. It's also written in the Bible that it was given by Mrs Elizabeth Westley of Charlton by Ottmore in the year 1765.

This bible is 3.5" thick! x 4.5" wide x 7" long in rough shape, printed in 1765

The first page has the name Jane or June Gurney with a broken red wax seal. The next page with writing has the following:
Elizth Knibbs & I Gurney was married at Deddington in Oxfordshire on Thursday 7th June 1781
Jane Gurney 3rd Daughter born Nov. 21 1791 about 11 morning>Charles Gurney 4th son born Feb 18 1795 & died June 16
Elizth French Gurney First Daughter was born July 23 1782 about half past 10 morning 
John Gurney was born Monday Nov. 17th 1783 about 2 morning 
James Gurney was born Thursday Nov. 17th 1785 9 night 
Ann Gurney Secd Daughter was born Wednesday Nov 14th 1787 11 night & died Oct 16 1793 
Isaac Gurney 3 Son was born Sunday Feb 4th 1790 about 1/4 past 3 morning 

 
(the next entry was written along the edge of the page which has disintegrated)
:
Thos Gurney 5th Son ________ Nov 2

On the next page is written:
This book was given by Mrs. Elizbth Westley of Charlton by Ottmore in the year 1765
1765 E. W. (with fancy signature)
  

And later in the Bible: 

Elizabeth Gurney Wife of I Gurney Departed this Life 2nd April 1807 In the 54th year of her Age
Jno Gurney died Jan 30th 1810 aged 26
I. G. (or J. G.) & E. H. was Married at Olney Nov. 10th 1808
