Last Edited=17 May 2005
     Francis SYMONDSON was born in 1826 in Hoxton, Middlesex.1,2
Francis married Alphonsine Marie GIBBINS, daughter of Henry James Isadore GIBBINS and Louise Victoire Alphonsine MARCHAND, on 12 February 1853. The wedding was a double wedding with her sister Adele Victorine GIBBINS to James URIDGE.3,4
In the 1861 census he is shown living at 7 King Street, St. James Westminster, with the occupation of hairdresser/perfumer. In that census Henry James Gibbins is shown retired, living in Norwood, Surrey but the business is still in the name of Henry James Gibbins and Co, Perfumers until at least 1871 (Kelly's Post Office Directory). Since Francis Symondson's children were born there, at least until 1867, it seems that he continued in the business for some time, perhaps leaving it after his father-in-law's death in 1877.4
Francis was listed as the Head of Household in the census of 2 April 1871 at 7 King Street, St. James, Westminster, London, an Insurance Broker, living with his wife and young daughter.5
