Sarah Ann Gamble and her Gamble family chart

There were three completely separate branches of Gamble families living in Quorn in the late 1800s and 1900s. Extensive research seems only to prove their different roots, rather than find connections.

This particular branch began their history in Quorn when Henry Gamble, a young quarryman born in Rothley, married Ann Squires from Woodhouse, in 1879, and they moved to Barrow Road, Quorn.

By 1891, Henry, Ann and their expanding family had moved to Meeting Street. The photograph (bottom left), taken in about 1907, shows their two youngest children, Sarah Ann and James Percy. Next to this are two Sunday School prizes from the Primitive Methodist Church, presented to Sarah Ann in 1905 and 1908.

James Percy Gamble married Maud Higgins from Coalville, in 1929, and the couple settled at 71 Meeting Street. These were the last Gambles from this branch of the family to live in Quorn.
