Janet Gammell (familiarly known as Jessie), was the second daughter of Lt Gen Andrew Gammell and Martha Stageldoir/Gammell. She was born on 26 May 1792 and baptised at St Andrews Church, Holborn on 27 November 1792. On 11 January 1814 she married Joseph Stageldoir Peile at St Marylebone, Middlesex. Joseph was her cousin (the son of Jessie’s mother’s sister, Sarah Peile (née Stageldoir)) and a piano teacher, pianist and composer. As is evidenced in Andrew Gammell’s will signed only 3 days after her wedding, Jessie’s father strongly disapproved of this marriage and of her husband, excluding Jessie “who disgraced herself by marrying a blackguard”, from inheritance other than a small annuity. Under the terms of her father’s will, Jessie received only £100 a year for her lifetime (worth about £8,000 today). Jessie died, aged only 36, on 4 June 1828 and was buried at St Luke's, Chelsea.
Certainly after that and maybe before, the family fell on hard times. On 15 June 1836 Joseph suffered what was probably a stroke which deprived him of speech and paralysed his right side. He was declared insolvent and the Royal Society of Musicians, of which he had been a member since 1816, granted him £6 and 6 shillings a month and £10 for medical relief as well as support for the schooling of his two youngest children. However, things got worse still and in 1838 all his possessions were distrained, he was declared bankrupt and spent time, at least between January and March 1839, in Horsemonger Lane prison. He died on 14 June 1840.
Jessie and Joseph had 10 children:
Janet Peile 15 December 1814 - 17 July 1881
Martha Gammell Peile 21 May 1816 - 11 October 1878
Joseph Peile 20 August 1817 - 21 June 1842

She seems to have not had a very happy life, being regularly admitted to the workhouse with various medical issues. William died in 1872 and Martha on 11 October 1878. She appears to have had no children.
(A3) Joseph Peile was born on 20 August 1817. He was a solicitor's clerk. He married Cornelia Mierop Bryant on 18 February 1838 at Paddington St James, but Joseph died only four years later on 21 June 1842. Cornelia did not marry again and died in February 1848. They appear to have had no children.

We know almost nothing about her except that at the time of the 1861 and 1871 censuses, she was living with a Catherine Peile who was said to be her sister. However, she had no sister of that name and nor did she have any sisters born in Ipswich, which is where Catherine was born. They were both cap milliners and both unmarried. Laura died in Paddington on 21 March 1872. She appears to have had no children.

and a member of the Royal Society of Musicians, on 18 May 1841 at St Luke’s Church, Chelsea. He

occupation as “Gent”, or in one case “anything”! For many years they lived with her parents in
Chelsea. Alfred died on 3 May 1869 and Maria on 19 May 1883. They appear to have had no children.

with William being a shipping insurance agent. William died on 23 June 1874 and Maria on 8 June

In about 1853 they emigrated to Australia, with their first two daughters, Emma Laura, who had been born on 1 June 1850 and Georgianna Morton who was born on 16 March 1852. They settled at Collingwood, Victoria, where Georgiana Morton, aged one, died on 4 January 1854. Georgiana K M and John had four further children in Australia, but Georgiana K M died in Collingwood on 14 February 1861, aged 33.

Children of John K and Georgiana K M Garner (née Peile)
(C1) Emma Laura Garner was born on 1 June 1850 in Hoxton, London and emigrated with her family to Australia when she was about 2 years old. When her father returned to the UK in the early 1860s, it is presumed that the children did too. However, aged 21, Emma emigrated to Queensland, Australia arriving in February 1872 and on 12 March 1873 she married James Watson at the house of Doctor Gilder in St Lawrence, Queensland, Australia. James' occupation is given as carrier, Emma's occupation shown as servant. Emma died on 27 December 1920 in Queensland and James on 24 August 1922. James and Emma had three children:

In 1871 he was living with his father and step-mother and was an engraver. Shortly after that he evidently decided to return to Australia and in 1877 in Sydney, New South Wales, he married Bertha Maria Blackert. They had two children, Alfred Garner, born on 25 May 1878 and Emma Garner, born on 20 December 1880, but who died less than a month later, on 18 January 1881, on the same day that her mother, Bertha, also died.

In 1931 Edith married William Sydney Smith and they continued to live at the Windsor Castle pub. In 1934, Edith was described in a Post Office directory as a beer retailer, so presumably she was the landlady of the pub. By 1938 they were living in Willesden, having presumably left the pub.
