My Geale Ancestors

A 9x Great Grandmother was Sarah Geale who married William Reeve in 1659 in Cuckfield, Sussex.  She had been born in Cuckfield in 1637 and was the daughter of John Geale and Sarah Brocket.

A relative of Sarah's was John Geale, born in Findon in 1651 and he became John Guile, who was the ancestor of my aunt by marriage, Violet Gathern.  (Violet married my mum's brother.)  John's grandfather was also Sarah's great grandfather.

I am very grateful to Di Oxford for passing on details about the Guile families in Sussex.  She and I are also grateful to other Guile researchers who have unwittingly passed their research onto me for inclusion in this web site - thank you everyone; corrections and additions would be gratefully received.  This is what Di was told....

"Many years ago my grandfather told my brother that in the past two Guile brothers had a disagreement and as a result of this one of the brothers changed the spelling of his name from Guile to Guiel.  At the time my brother thought no more of it but a few years ago he was working on a project in London with a girl and when he asked her surname she advised it was Guiel as opposed to ours Guile.  Spookily enough she had heard the same story told through her family!  My brother asked me if I could find a link between us.  Eventually and with help I managed to put the pieces together and established that she was a 5th cousin once removed! Since then any searching has been on both (plus more) spellings as the spelling changes back and forth even in the same generation!"

In June 2008, Derek Guile, kindly contacted me with lots more information going back to a John Geale born about 1574 in Cuckfield, Sussex.  Derek worked out that Geale became Guile.
