My family seem to have been the Bakers in Bisley, Richard Gibbins and Ann Gibbins as shown in the 1841-61 census.

Does anyone have any information on the Gibbins family or where the old bakery was located? I understand that the bakery at the turn of the century was not the bakery my family came from but it might be.

Any info please contact Alistair Gibbins

Sarah Jane Watkins (1838-1910) was my grandmother's grandmother and Thomas' (b 1810) daughter. There is a notation on the 1851 census that mentions The Bear. Perhaps the bakery was attached to The Bear.

Ooops! Non sequitor! I confounded Thomas the butcher with Richard and Joseph the bakers. But it seems from the 1851 census that Richard lived between the police station and the White Hart; perhaps he liived where he baked.

Hello Alistair
Don't know if you ever got any response to your enquiry re the name? I have dozens of them in my tree because my grandmother was Fanny Alice Augusta GIBBINS. There's a load of stuff about the family on the web. Best, and arguably most reliable, source is at
www.glosgen.co.uk/families/gibbins.htm
a website run by John Hyde. Masses of them are buried in local churchyards, which I hope to visit again in the spring.
Good luck!
