Janet Gammell (Peile) and her descendants



Janet Gammell (familiarly known as Jessie), was the second daughter of Lt. General Andrew Gammell and Martha Stageldoir.  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:

Children of Joseph and Jessie Peile (née Gammell)


A1.  Janet Peile was born on 15 December 1814.  On 22 March 1840, she married Robert Lawn, a window blind maker. They lived in Marylebone and St Pancras and Janet died in Camden, London on 17 July 1881.  They appear to have had no children.


A2.  Martha Gammell Peile was born on 21 May 1816. On 16 October 1861 she married William Joseph Allaway, a cooper, though in the census of 1871, he describes himself as a bath attendant. 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.


A4.  Laura Peile was born on 11 January 1819.  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.



A5.  Alfred Philip Peile was born on 12 May 1820. He married Maria Louisa Waud, a music teacher and a member of the Royal Society of Musicians, on 18 May 1841 at St Luke’s Church, Chelsea.  He was described as a commercial clerk on his death certificate, though on census forms described his 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.

A6.  William Peile was born on 19 July 1821. He married Matilda Redman on 22 January 1843 at St Pancras, London, but nothing further is known about William or Matilda.

By 1851 they were living in London where William was a commercial clerk and Maria a school mistress, but later they moved to Camberwell with William being a shipping insurance agent. William died on 23 June 1874 and Maria on 8 June 1896. They had four children:

A10.  Georgiana Kirkman Morton Peile was born on 24 December 1827 in Islington.  She lived with her uncle Frederick’s family after her father’s death.  On 17 June 1849 she married John Kendal Garner, a printer, at St Ethelburga Church, Bishopsgate. 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.  Her husband John returned to the UK with his three surviving children and in 1866 married Margaret Blight with whom he had several further children.  John died on 6 November 1905.

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:

C3.  John Collingwood Garner was born in Melbourne, Australia in about 1854, but must have travelled to the UK in the early 1860s when his father returned.  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.  John lost his life, together with that of his son, Alfred, when the RMS Quetta, on which they were returning to England, wrecked on 28 February 1890.

C6.  Georgina Garner was born in 1860 in Collingwood, Victoria, Australia, but she died aged only 5 months that same year.
