William Jobling Gibbeted 1832
#1
Hi
I have in my possession a small drinking glass which was made to commemorate the gibbeting of William Jobling at Jarrow Slake back in 1832. This glass has been in our family for years and years. I live in the Midlands but know that my fathers side of the family come from South Shields. I'm trying to find out if I'm related to William in some way?
Can anyone help - are there any relations of his out there?
Incidentally I'm travelling to South Shields on Monday to donate the glass to the South Shields Museum. Smile

I found this Interesting article on disaster glasses while surfing the web.

It would appear that there was more than one style of jarrow boat disaster glass.

England & Wales, Criminal Registers, 1791-1892 about William Jobling


Name: William Jobling Date of Trial: Summer 1832 Trial Year: 1832 Location of Trial: Durham, England Sentence: Death

That's all I've found with just that information to go on. He won't appear on the censuses as it's prior to 1841 when they begin putting names on and the bmd index begins from 1837. There may be parish records perhaps. If you knew the names of his children, you could some best guessing in the 1841 and subsequent censuses for his wife and children as you know one of them would have been born about 1832. There is other family trees appear on Ancestry.co.uk so that's always an option too. The tree on Ancestry is set to private but I have gleaned that he may have been born 1799 and his wife may have been Isabella Turner (married 1821) with a daughter also named Isabella born 1831.

Another option is the British newspaper archives online which start from £6.95

As far as your own tree goes Mully and connecting it to this character, I would go back as far as you could from what you know and then use the freebmdindex.org.uk as anyone after 1912 it will give you the mother's maiden name on the birth results, then you can do marriage searches on the two surnames and further verify things with census info. If you get stuck, give me a shout at "veelollo@talktalk.net"
