Joseph Gamgee was an expert in all things to do with horses and spent 30 years in Italy supplying horses to the aristocracy. His younger brother Charles went with him to Italy and stayed for some time with five children born there, one of whom became my Great Grandfather who returned to England . He was a "farrier" but what happened to Charles, his father who followed his stay in Florence by a spell in Rome?
Charles Gamgee died on 18 June 1859 and is buried in the Protestant cemetery in Rome. His wife Esther had died earlier, on 5 July 1849 and was also buried there. On 6 April 1845 there had died Henry Gamgee aged 2.5 years, probably one of their children. The graves of Charles and Esther were exhumed long ago to an ossuary in the cemetery where their names are recorded on a plaque. See 'Our graves'.

I too am a descendant of Charles and also know next to nothing about him. My name is Stephan Gamgee  and he was my great, great, great grandfather coming down through 3 Charleses and one Albert. If anyone knows anything I'd be eternally grateful.
