John and Hannah Hall of Gorsley, Parish of Newent (General)

I've had similar problems to you Mike, altho I've been using FamilySearch to search the census'.
I also think the Oxenhall marriage is relevant, the PR for that and some of the other events Sid listed are within this FoD site's database.

It doesn't help us that there were a lot ! of John Halls in the general Gorsley/Newent/Kempley area, as shown by the PRs etc.


I found son Oliver easier to track;

Sid,
I searched the forum's prior threads for "John Hall" Gorsley, this seems relevant ? (Also did this for Newent, Kempley, etc, but no more luck there).

Searching the BNA for "Kempley Chapel" gave more articles suggesting another Chapel might be added to the list;

"Anniversary Services of the Baptist Chapel, Kempley on Sunday.... Sermon by Mr Thos Nicholson of Gloucester..... On Monday addresses by Rev John Hall of Gorsley(who presided), Rev George Howe of Ross, Rev H. Phillips, of Longhope, Mr Nicholson and Mr W Pontiflex."
Gloucester Journal - Saturday 18 September 1869
