Biography and Notes

Believed to belong to the family of Vicary of Dunkeswell, Devon, but proof lacks other than that papers exist sealed by her husband, and by her sister's husband, Hugh Mallett, with their own arms impaling the Vicary arms, or (after the death of the last of her brothers) bearing them on an escuthcheon of pretence (see G.A.Gibbs's will and a letter of 1793 in Aldenham Genealogical Cols, Vol. A, p.223 and Vol. C,1 p.383; also Gibbs Ped. 1904 edn p.xvii and its Preface of 1903). Her husband's house in Palace Yard, Exeter, continued to be her home till her death. Her first cousin Samuel Munckley was the founder of the Bristol house of business which later became Gibbs Bright & Co.
