Re: Gellen / Gelling Family History

Next topic is the parents of Matilda Killey b 1831 Malew. I can't see any reference to "Gornall" or variants, so I don't know why she used that name. Makes me worry we've gone astray here?

Matilda's mother was Jane Corrin, baptized 20 Sep 1807 Malew to William Corrin & Jane Walkington who married 27 Aug 1799 Malew. Jane Walkington bapt 15 Oct 1780 Malew was the youngest d/o Nicholas Walkington & Margaret Corlett md 14 Sep 1762 Malew. Their daughter Elizabeth (Jane's oldest sister) married one of the many John Gellings so I've met these folks before.

As Frances noted, Jane Corrin married John Brew 2 Mar 1839 Marown and they had 4 children.
