I am almost lost for words. You are all amazing. I will feed it into my tree. I suspected Gelsham was only one of the variations of the name. I struggled for a long time to find the family on the Census as they are Galshaw on the 1851 census. My great grandmother was Ann Gelsham who married Richard Winterbottom. Keep up the good work.
