Gamble & Stalford of Belfast

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gamble
Hoping to make contact with researchers of these Belfast families. The info I have is pieced together from letters dated in the late 1800's and BDM Registry of Victoria, Australia.

Robert GAMBLE marr. Agnes STALFORD in 1827 Belfast.
Children were Mary, Edward, William and Frederick. Agnes and the children migrated to Australia in 1850 on the Lucy. Nothing is known of Robert's life except that he was a clerk and may have had a brother David GAMBLE who died 24 June 1884. The parents of Robert and David are David GAMBLE and Mary HALFORD(poss STALFORD) These Gambles are reputed to be cousins of the baronet Gambles.

Agnes had a sister Margaret HARKNESS who had at least one son named Alexander and resided at 105 Shankhill Rd at least during 1884. Another sister Mary Jane Murray lived in Glasgow and had 7 sons one of whom was Edward and another Alexander who was an engineer on a steamer in China. Agnes had at least two brothers John and David STALFORD.

Eager for info, look forward to hearing from some of you.
