Oldest Ancestor of Family Group
William Gammon
Earliest known date for Oldest Ancestor
Born about 1804
Origin of Family Group
Oystermouth, Glamorganshire, Wales

This family tree was collated after a query from Mark Lewis who was looking into his Gammon ancestors that came from the Mumbles area on the Gower peninsula near Swansea in Wales.
I need to confirm some relationships with relevant marriage and birth certificates, but the family tree currently starts with William Gammon who was born around 1804 in Oystermouth, Wales. The family are mainly mariners, sailors and fishermen over several generations.
In fact, Mark's great-uncle appears to have died in an accident at sea in 1947. I will add more about this later.

To Do List
Find births of William & Mary's children & find maiden name
Need Richard & Susan's marr cert to confirm James is father
James & Elizabeth JONES marr cert & prove father is William
