Looking for the GIBBON family of Wick, Wales

Looking for William GIBBON, a carpenter from Wick, Vale of Glamorgan, south Wales. He was married to Jane JENKINS in 1792. found in St James Parish transcripts.
Unble to find where he was born. Is he connected to GIBBON of Trecastle. Have checked other local parishes in records office but no luck. any ideas?
The descendants of William and Jane stayed in Wick until abt 1890. Their son, William married Mary JONES and became the owners of The Carpenters Arms, on Broughton road, once called Potato street. (1841 census)
If anybody needs information about the families in this area, i may be able to help. I have access to Glamorgan Records Office, which holds parish records and deeds for most of South Wales. UK.

Looking for Phyllis Ellen Dobing of Northumberland

My great grandmother was born Phyllis Ellen Patterson in about 1887, Northumberland.

She married Charles Dobing in 1906, Tynemouth, northumberland. I think that she died in about 1916 but have no records.

They had one child, Ailsa, born 1910, Northumberland. Ailsa was told that her mother committed suicide but cannot fine her under any death records.

Phyllis was one of about 7 children. Her Father was John Patterson of the Northumberland area. Anybody recognise anything at all please contact.
