Guernsey Butchers : Gardner


At the marriage of James BASKFILL and Ann GARDNER in St Peter Port in 1795, Ann was said to be the daughter of Samuel GARDNER of Lyme, Dorset. She was in fact the daughter of Samuel GARDNER and Rosanna VINCENT (?-1815) of Uplyme in Devon.

It is not clear precisely when Samuel and Rosanna migrated to Guernsey, but it would have been some time between the birth of their son William in Uplyme in 1784 and the marriage of their eldest daughter Ann in Guernsey in 1795. In 1783 they were returned to Uplyme, their home parish, by the overseers of the poor for Lyme Regis - so they must have hit hard times there - which may explain why they emigrated to Guernsey.
