    Hi, my name is Nigel Kibble and I am currently compiling my family name history. It has been through this investigation that I have found 4 Kibble's who made and sold watches in the 1800s. Their names are
    William Federick Kibble of 22 Gracechurch Street London 1851-1881
    Richard Kibble of Greenwich 1847-1874
    George Federick Kibble of St Georges Place Hanover Square London 1861-1881
    Charles William Kibble of 6 London Street Greenwich 1881-1911

    If anyone has any information on these individuals I would love to hear from you

    Hello and welcome to this message board,

    Hopefully you will get some replies here.

    I see you are in the UK. If you have not looked st them you may find information in London Business directories. I found some dealers that way.

    You should use the census returns (if you haven't already) which will give you a lot of information about these people and their families.

    Again, welcome to the board.

His long time address was 22 Gracechurch St, London. His effects in his will were 2965 pounds, 5 shillings and 6 pence. The executors were Rev. Alfred Charles Kibble and Harold James Kibble. Harold was his son and a bank clerk at that time about age 43. I will research the other names for you.
