This may not be the appropriate place for this request but I would be grateful if anyone could tell me about the origin of the name.I am researching John Gribble and William Gribble - brothers who lived in Jamestown for some decades in the mid 1800s. The emigrated from Camborne in Cornwall presumably to the gold mines.
Would like to contact anyone who might know of them

Do you have any more info about John + William? Seems likes Camborne, Cornwall was the seat of the Gribble name. You might like to google James Gribble and "Cabbage Tree Swamp". May help???

Thanks re James Gribble - of Cabbage Tree Swamp. He was their brother. My ancestor is Charles another brother [Australia] Yes Camborne was the birth place of these men and other siblings who distributed themselves around the New World between 1840 and 1855.
William visited James around 1870 and worked in the Thames gold mines for some years. He left a son in New Zealand who married.
