HE history of the Gillman or Gilman Family was until recently almost entirely unknown.
Genealogists appear to have overlooked the name or not considered the family of sufficient importance to chronicle.
The peculiarity of the name, and the fact that there are so few Gilmans or Gillmans living in England, encouraged the writer to hope that it would be possible to trace out the history of his own immediate family further than his knowledge extended when he commenced the investigation, which reached but little further back than his grandfather, James Gillman, the Surgeon of Highgate, with whom the poet and philosopher, S. T. Coleridge, found a home of peace and lived as an honoured guest during the last eighteen years of his life.
In the course of the investigation the writer became acquainted with a Mr. Daniel Gillman, of Anne Mount, Co. Cork, who had been engaged in a similar work for some years in respect to the Irish branch of the family.
Mr. Daniel Gillman had, after much labour and many years of search from old wills, &c., traced out his family and that of Sir John St. Leger Gillman, Bart., who died in 1816, to a John Gillman or Gilman, who came from England at the Close of the sixteenth century, probably with the Earl of Essex in his useless expedition of 1599.
