About James Gibbons, of Rotterdam

From David Esterly's book "Grinling Gibbons the Art of Carving" Page 34

"[Grinling's parents] Their marriage registry in Rotterdam gives Gibbon's parents names as James Gibbens and Elizabeth Gorlings. Elizabeth Gorling's great-grandfather was one Sir Simon Hansacre of Worcestershire. Hansacre's daughter and heiress married Richard Dynely's daughter Elizabeth Dingley (sic) married Francis Griling; and it is their daughter Elizabeth her surname now appearing as Gorlings, who is the carver's mother" [Ref. John Evelyn, Diary, 21 January 1671. The standard edition is by E.S. de Beer, 6 vols, Oxford 1955]
