7.   James GALE
Bap 3 Jan 1802 at Oadby, Leicester (ref IGI).

Marr (1) 6 Nov 1825 at Wigston, Leicester to Mary HURD (ref LDS member in IGI). This is sometimes spelt HEARD. It is not known when Mary was born.

Mary seems to have had a sister Sophia bc1797 who married Charles DAVENPORT on 20 Aug 1821 and they are looking after the daughter (Selina White) of James and Mary's eldest daughter Ann in 1861 after Ann died. They also have Ann Gale with them in 1841 and Sarah Gale with them in 1851.

Mary died between 1835 (birth of last child) and 1839 (2nd marriage of James).

James marr (2) reg Jun qtr 1839 at Blaby dist to Mary LANGHAM (ref FreeBMD). The bride's maiden name was Mary TAILBY. The marriage was 30 Jun 1839 at the parish of Wigston Magna, Leicestershire; the groom was a widower, of full age, Labourer, residence Great Wigston, son of John Gale, FWK; the bride was a widow, of full age, FWK, residence Great Wigston, dau of John Tailby, Blacksmith; witnesses were Mary Cooper & John Cooper (ref Marriage Cert in hands of LS).

Mary was born c1803 at Gt Wigston (ref census). She may have been bap 9 Mar 1803 at Wigston, dau of John Tailby & Elizabeth Cross (ref LDS member in IGI).

The children listed in the IGI as children of William Langham and Mary Tailby seem to be actually the children of William Langham and Anna Reynolds. This can be seen by looking at the census records for 1841, 1851 & 1861 for William and Ann(a). However it is very likely that Mary Tailby's husband was also a William Langham, because there only seems to be one George Langham born around 1835 and he seems to be the one below and was the son of a William Langham (ref his Marriage Cert held by LS).

Mary Langham nee Tailby brought into the Gale marriage 3 children, being Isaac Langham (born c1833), George (born c1835), Mary Jane (born c1837). It is not possible to say (without seeing parish records) who was the father of these three; there is a baptism of a George listed in IGI (per LDS member) but it might be one of the children of William Langham and Anna Reynolds.

See 1841 & 1851 census for all 3, and 1861 & 1871 census for Mary Jane (known as Jane). Isaac was born c1833, George born c1835, Mary Jane born c1837. In 1851 the children were referred to as sons in law and dau in law. In 1871 Mary Gale was referred to as Mary Jane's mother. George (if this is the correct one) married Maria Cawthorn in 1856 (ref IGI). Mary Jane married John Ball in Dec qtr 1857 (ref FreeBMD).
