I am looking for information relating to ancestors of John Gibbin. John was born in Manchester in 1849, the son of John Gibbin a warehouseman.He moved to Castleford some time before 1872 and married Martha Harriet Drake at Methley, nr. Castleford on 1st June 1872. He was a railway wagon builder for the collieries and was a very religious man. It is believed that he came from a theatrical family background but moved to Yorkshire to get away as he disapproved of their lifestyle. Any information would be gratefully received. John died in Castleford in 1919.
