Phebe (or Phoebe or Phobe) Gay was the mother of Elizabeth Bartram (or Bertram). In her marriage she signed her name Phebe Gay.


She was born in around 1797 to 1806 in Wymondham, Norfolk.

The legal age for marriage was 12 (albeit highly unusual), and she was married in 1818, therefore the absolute latest year of her birth legally would be 1806. Most people were married between 16 and 24, which would put her year of birth roughly between 1794 and 1802.


Phoebe Gay married Isaac Bartram on the 8th November 1818, in Wymondham, Norfolk. Both were of the parish, and bachelor and spinster.

Banns were read on the 11th, 18th, and 25th October 1818.

One of the witnesses was a John Gay. The next day, on the 9th November 1818, John Gay was married to Mary Thrower, and Phebe Gay was one of the witnesses! Their banns were read on the 25th October, and the 1st and 8th November 1818.
