Gosset, Gardiner, Laing.
We are trying to find the connection between John LAING and Lydia Whiteford BAILEY who married at St Michael's Horton on 6th January 1826, and Anna Maria GARDINER. Anna Maria was a witness to the above marriage. Her maiden name was GOSSET and she married James Ballard Gardiner at Marylebone in 1817. They appear to have lived at Horton House where he was shown as Major Gardiner. In 1848 he is shown as a Commissioner to the Brunswick Estate in Hove and had connections to or owned Nos 4 and 5 Brunswick Square. He died at his London address in 1851 by which time he was Lt Col Gardiner. Anna Maria lived at No 4 Brunswick Sq from 1854 where she died in 1877 aged 91. John and Lydia Laing had a daughter Adelaide GARDINER Laing who died in August 1831 aged six months and is buried at St Michaels together with her mother, d1836 and father, d1869. Anna Maria Gosset had two brothers who both became vicars one at Datchet and the other at Old Windsor. Horton House appears to have been the Gosset family home.
Researching John Laing esq who is buried in the graveyard of St Michael Horton with his first wife Lydia Whitefoord and infant daughter Adelaide. John Laing, b1798, was the son of a coffee planter from Jamaica, David Laing, of Scottish descent from Newton in Midlothian, who returned to England in 1800 and died in London that year. John Laing died in Brighton Sussex in 1869. What was their connection with Horton? See also enquiries under Bailey, Whiteford Bailey, Gosset, Gardiner etc. John Laing's younger brother was the Reverend David Laing, b1800, who was responsible for the building of Holy Trinity church at Haverstock Hill London and was founder of the Governesses' Benevolent Institution.

Married at Horton 6th January 1827, Lydia was baptised at Horton in 1808, father's name given as William Bailey and mother Mary. We would like to know what their connection to Horton was and where Lydia's family came from. Her father's name is given elsewhere as Captain W Bailey, but not known if Army or Navy. He had died prior to 1827 as consent to the marriage was given by her mother and only guardian Mary Bailey, Widow.
