GILBERT OR GILBERD OF NORTH PETHERWIN

 

The spelling of the surname of this family varies but generally Gilbert is common until the mid-eighteenth century and Gilberd is often used after that period. Some descendants in the nineteenth century and later used the spelling Gillbard.

 

Earlier Gilberts of North Petherwin are recorded in the heraldic visitation of 1620[1] but no link with the family covered here has been found as yet.

Rebecca’s burial entry gives her age as 74, suggesting she was born about 1762, but her identification as the daughter of Digory Gilberd is supported by the parish register entry for her marriage to John Symons, where one of the witnesses was Digory Gilberd.
