Peter Gamble's Family History Pages

Welcome to these web pages! Many hours of work have been put into the research and documentation of these ancestors.

I am researching my family, the Gamble Family and my mother's family, the Turner and Beveridge Families, as well as my wife Lea's family, the Sessions family and her mother's families, the Udermans and White Families.

William GAMBLE was born circa 1760 and married Mary Williams and they had five children.
Arms: Or, on a pile gules between two trefoils slipped in a base vert, a fleur-de-lis of the first, a chief ermine.

Crest: On a mount between two trefoils slipped vert a stork argent, holding in the beak a rose gules, stalked, leaved, and slipped proper.

Motto: Vix ea nostra voco meaning I scarce call these things ours.

My maternal grandparents: Thomas TURNER was born in 1878 in Liverpool, Lancashire. He married Henrietta BEVERIDGE born in 1880 and they had eight children.

Stephen SESSIONS was born around 1790 in Surrey, England. He married Deborah ??? sometime around 1815. and they had seven children.
Arms: Gold and blue with three griffins heads counterchanged.

Crest: A gold Griffin's head.

Motto: Hope for the best.

Lea's maternal grandparents: Charles William Ernest UDEMANS was born in 1890 and died circa 1926 in Cape Town, South Africa. He married Sarah Ann "Sally" WHITE born in 1892 in Cape Town and they had five children. She died in 1967.

Although no link has yet been found between the families being researched and the families who were awarded the coats of arms, we can always Hope for the best !

Some of the material for the Gamble Family has come from Donald Gamble of Rhode Island, USA, while some of the material for the Sessions Family has come from Lesley Silverstone (nee Hinchcliffe) of Vancouver, Canada.
These web pages record the information about their descendents that we have uncovered so far.
