Henry Stables the Elder of Kirkby Overblow (1727-1770)

Henry married Henrietta Maria Gale in 1749. They had two daughters Maria Gale Stables & Elizabeth Gale Stables. We also believe, from evidence in the deed memorials, that Henry had a son called Henry, possibly illegitimately or from an earlier marriage.

It is very difficult to separate the deeds of Henry the Elder from those of his son, Henry the Younger, and it is likely that some of the later deeds on this page actually relate to the son.

The Notices of the Stables Family sheds no light on these, as its author also seems to have confused the two Henrys.
