Newspapers and journals: Elopement of Ann, wife of Samuel Gumbleton


Whereas Ann, the Wife of Samuel Gumbleton, eloped from her husband the 17th of April last, and has not since been heard of; it is reported that she is recommended into some of Lord Galway's family—this is to desire her to return, and she shall be kindly received by her said husband; and all Gentleman are desired to inspect into their servants, as she may have changed her name: She is a short fat woman, and has lived as a cook in several Gentlemen's families, and may be apprehended by having a recommendation from William Whitacre, Esq. of Motcombe, near Shaftesbury, Dorset, or from A.B. Bennet, Esq. of Donhead St Mary. She is upwards of 50 years of age, of a brown complexion, dark hair, and grey eyes, had on a plain country dress when she eloped: Whosoever shall entertain her after this advertisement, shall be prosecuted as the law directs, by me
Samuel Gumbleton,
Of Donhead St. Mary, Wilts.
