My maternal line is the Gambolds, and the descendant of an Anne Gambold who married a
Benjamin Millingchamp in 1754 was Herbert Millingchamp Vaughan (1870-1948)
"HMV". HMV wrote an account of his ancestor in "The South Wales
Squires", but I believe that it was in a newspapr article or letter that he wrote
"The Gambolds said to be descended from the old knightly house of Bold of St.
Dogmaels, who claimed a common ancestry with the Royal Tudors ......"
Unfortunately I can't lay my hands on the exact reference or article, but know that I
have seen it in Aberystwyth. The basic premise of the article was to state that the
Gambolds were not in any way noble, but they might have been descended through an
illegitimate link with the Norman Boldes.
I don't know whether this information is of use to you but thought I would send it

Subject: [Dyfed] Bold or Bould
Is there anyone out there who have connections to the Bold or Bould family.
Originally from Anglsey, they appear in St. Dogmaels parish in 1831. Probably at Hendre,
but this is to some extent speculative.
According to my interpretation they or the next generation with the Youngs, Warrens and
Pictons in North Pembs. There also appears to be a marriage with the Phillips family of
Pentre Ifan, and possibly Bull? of Drefach, Nevern.
There is in my opinion, giving the scarcity of the name, with Hugh Bold of Brecon. His
brother apparently according to his Will, was an Innkeeper in Carmarthen.
Carmarthen is Halfway House between North Pembrokeshire and Brecon, therefore this
connection is not as far fetched, as it might first appear.
Any information speculative or otherwise, would be gratefully received.
