Gilberts on St Helena
- View SourceI have done quite a lot of family tree research in England but have one
outstanding gap. According to the 1891 and 1901 censuses, my great
great grandfather was called Martin Thomas Lisle Gilbert and was born
on St Helena around 1865, and his father was called Thomas. By the time
he was 21, he was a carpenter in Folkestone and marrying a local girl.
In the small amount of research I've done, I haven't come across any
Gilberts on St Helena. Does anyone know anything about him or know
where I could look? I would be very grateful for any advice.
