John Gabbdey married Elizabeth Travally, daughter of Winnall Travally and Elizabeth Benbow at the church of St Dunstan and All Saints, Stepney, on 11 Jun 1769. John Gabbdey was born on 20 July 1745 and baptised on 11 Aug 1745 at St Anne's Limehouse, the son of Henry Gabbdey and Ann Stewart. This pair of my 5th great-grandparents married, by licence, and, witnessing the marriage were the bride's father, Winnall Travally and a James Bryant. 

Information suggests that John and Elizabeth had four children: 
  1. William Travally Gabbedy b. 1770 in Limehouse, London
  2. John Benbow Gabbedy b. 1771 in Risby's Rope Walk, Limehouse, London
  3. Thomas Gabbady b. 1773 in Risby's Rope Walk, Limehouse, London
  4. Esther Gabbedy b. 1775 in Limekiln Hill, Limehouse, London
In 1771, John Gabbdey's occupation is listed as Shipwright.

John Gabbdey must have died before 1781, because the widowed Elizabeth Gabbedy remarried, at St George in the East, to Edward Penfold on 7 Aug 1781. Witnesses were R Soper and, again, the bride's father, Winnall Travally.
