Can some kind soul help me find my 'Gamble' ? James Gamble born c1821 gave his birthplace as Glasgow. Fathers name given on marriage certificate as James also, the younger married in Hull in 1846. Can find no trace of either before that date. Thanks for giving time to my request, I really have hit a wall with this one.

What were the occupations of the 2 James Gambles? Where did the younger marry & to whom?

There is a Jas. Gamble 21, a private in the Royal Horse Guards at Hyde Park Barracks in London in the 1841 census.

Hi Wirral, James [jnr] born c1822, married a Jane Wilkinson on 5th feb 1846 in Sculcoates, Hull. His occupation is given as labourer, residing in Drypool.
His fathers named as James and his occupation labourer also. On the 1851 census his occupation is dock labourer, living Garden Place, Drypool, Hull on this census and others he gives his birthplace as Scotland and Glasgow. Thanks for reading my post, it may be him 5yrs before his marriage ? where his father could be. Regards Marion

I hope you've been having success with your research.
I have a friend whose husband is a GAMBLE, living in Scotland, and he has gone into his Irish family history in great detail.
May I pass on your posted information and ask him if your Gamble family could be linked?
