When I had the great idea of creating a GILBY one name study, I should have stopped right there! I should have done some basic surname research and realised what a huge undertaking this was/is. Whilst I had not personally met many other prople with the surname, simple genealogical searches identified thousands upon thousands.
The primary spelling variant that I have included here is GILBEY. This variation is common for the same family across the various census years too.
