Looking for Gibbon Family of Glamorgan, Wales

Journal by ygibbon

My husband, David Carter Gibbon and I live on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada. His Great-great grandfather, William Gibbon was born about 1815 in Glamorgan, Wales. His parents were John Gibbon and Catherine Jones. William immigrated to Ontario Canada and was married to Margaret Stoner(Steiner). We are not sure whether they were married in Wales or in Ontario. They had 3 children, Sarah Gibbon, Jane Gibbon, and Archibald Gibbon. Archibald is my husband's Great Grandfather.

The History of the Gibbon family in Llanglydwen can be followed in 'A Gossip of Gibbons' (see Google); but you should be aware that it was a fairly widespread surname in Glamorgan - springing from Pembrokeshire @ Carmarthenshire, first in a trickle but the numbers swelling after the Rebecca Riots.

I have Gibbon ancestors from that area who emigrated to the United States in 1865. Hedley... I sent you a personal message. Click "messages" at the very top right of your screen next to your user name. I am eager to connect with you.
