Cabbell Ancestry, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Cabbell family history as sourced from an old memorial stone at St. Andrews in the Green, Glasgow. This records the deaths of the following:

  • William Burridge Cabbell on Sept 17th 1819 age 8?yrs 10 months.
  • Ann Cabbell on June 8th 1823 age 44
  • William Burridge Cabbell , Born Sept 13th 1773, died Sept 16th 1840 age 67 yrs.
  • George Cabbell, born July 9th 1814, died Feb 23rd 1844.
Cabbell appears to be an English name and after further research on the web I discovered that William Burridge Cabbell was one of the original 17 partners in the Glasgow Bank Company, established 1809. W.G. Cabbell was also the Cashier whose domicile was listed as 'London'.

In 1836 the Glasgow Bank merged with the Ship Bank to form the Glasgow and Ship Bank.
