Please note: There is no reference in the cited article to Richard's father by any name.
The family lived in Yardley, Worcestershire (now part of Birmingham). He is taken to be born in 1550 based on his marriage on 25 June 1575 to Margery Morken (entry reads Richard Gylberde and Margary Morken); her parents are not known. He is assumed to be the Richard buried at Yardley on 8 Apr 1626.
This family was noted by Douglas Richardson in: “The English Origin of Thomas Gilbert of Braintree, Mass., and Wethersfield, Conn.” The American Genealogist. Vol 67 p 161-. Jul 1992.
He found no information on the parents of Richard.
Children of Richard in the Yardley parish records.
There are no Morken entries in the Yardley parish registers, none in the Worcester probate index and none in the 1603 subsidy rolls for northern Worcestershire (John Amphlett, Lay Subsidy Roll A.D. 1603 for the County of Worcester[Oxford 1901]). But there are Morgans to look at.
There is no burial in Yardley for Margery under the Gilbert surname, nor have probate records in the Consistory Court of Worcester or the Prerogative Court of Canterbury been found for either of them.
