THOMAS GOODE I, Great VI Grandfather of Richard Barton

Husband of Mary Murrell

Father of Thomas Goode II

Thomas Goode I married Mary Murrel on 11th June 1765, at Pauntley, by licence. Thomas was described as a bachelor and both were from that parish. Both the bride and groom made their mark, and May Byett and Francis Partridge were the witnesses.

Mary Murrel was probably baptised at Dymock on 14th July 1739, the daughter of John and Milberrow Murrell.




Possible ancestors of Mary Goode (1739- )

Mary’s parents were John who married Milber Beale on 9th December 1738 at Dymock. This John Murrell probably died on 17th October 1800 aged eighty nine years, and his wife Milberrow Murrell, was buried at Dymock on 24th January 1767.


 

THOMAS GOODE II, Great V Grandfather of Richard Barton

Son of Thomas Goode and Mary Murrell

Husband of Mary Weobley

Father of Anne Goode

Also Father of Anna, James, Elizabeth, John, Thomas, Sarah and Joseph

Thomas Goode was born in about 1765. He was most likely baptised at Newent on 22nd November 1765, the son of Thomas and Mary Goode, Labourer of Newent (not in Forest of Dean Family History Trust database).

He married Mary Weobley at Newent on 2nd December 1789. The witnesses were Mary Trigg and John Matthews.

Thomas and Mary Goode had at least eight children.

Mary Goode was probably buried on 30th June 1831 at Oxenhall, described as aged seventy one years, in the register.

In 1841 Thomas Goode was living at Church House, Oxenhall. He was described as a seventy-five-year-old Labourer. Living with him were Joseph, a twenty-five-year-old labourer; Sarah aged thirty-four; William aged fourteen; John aged twelve and Richard aged five years.

Thomas Goode died on 18th July 1846 in the Work House at Newent, aged seventy-eight-years. He was described as an agricultural labourer, and the cause of death was given as ‘Gradual decay’, not certified. The witness was James Hiron of the Workhouse who made his mark. The death was registered on 20th July by William Bruton, Registrar.

Thomas Goode was buried at Oxenhall on 21st July 1846.


Possible Ancestors of Mary Goode( 1767-1831)

A Mary, daughter of Mary Perkins was baptised on 19th June 1740 but there is a note which says ‘posthumously’. The baptism of another Mary, daughter of Thomas and Ann Pyrkins of Redmarley D’Abitot, is less likely as the date is 4th February 1750 which would make her only about sixteen at the time of the marriage.

                                             |

Mary Pyrkyns married Thomas Weobley on 7th December 1766 at Oxenhall. A Mary Weobley died in Dymock aged seventy years in 1810 and a Thomas Weobley of Donnington was buried at Dymock on 28th January 1811.

Their children included:

Mary who was baptised on 29th March 1767 at Pauntley.

Susannah baptised on 1st January 1777 at Dymock.

Thomas baptised on 25th July 1779 at Dymock.

                                              |

Mary Weobley married Thomas Goode on 2nd December 1789 at Newent.


 

The children of Thomas and Mary Goode were Great V Aunts and Uncles:

ANNA GOODE, Great V Aunt of Richard Barton

Anna was baptised on 31st October 1790 at Oxenhall.

 


 

JAMES GOODE, Great V Uncle of Richard Barton

James was baptised on 25th September 1794.

He married Charlotte Jones at St. Mary de Lode, Gloucester, on 19th May 1817, witnessed by Moses Webley, Mary Jones and William Hewitt.  All children from the marriage were baptised at Newent, including James in 1818, Charles in 1819, Thomas in 1821, Hannah (written on top of Susannah which has been rubbed out) in 1823, Henry in 1824 and Job – a twin son – on 22nd February 1827.  Job was buried on 24th February 1827 and wife Charlotte Goode was buried a month later on 24th March 1827 at Newent.

James Goode married for a second time, to Hannah Packer on 17th October 1830 at Newent.

Their children included [Charles c. 1830 and Jane c. 1832?] Joseph baptised in 1831, William in 1833, Sarah baptised on 29th January 1835 but buried on 13th August 1836, Sarah Anne baptised in 1838 when her father was listed as a labourer and tanner, and John baptised in 1840; all at Newent.

In 1841 James and his family were living in the town of Newent. James was a forty-five-year-old tanner (Labourer) and born in the county. His wife Hannah was aged forty. Their children included Susannah aged fifteen and Henry aged twelve from James’s first marriage and Charles aged ten; Jane aged eight; Joseph aged seven; William aged six; Sarah aged two, and John aged one year from his second.

In 1851 James and his family were in Culver Street, Newent. James was a fifty-nine-year-old tanner born in Oxenhall. Hannah was aged fifty-five and born in Newent, and their children were listed as Joseph aged twenty; William aged eighteen; Sarah aged twelve and John aged ten. All were born in Newent.

In 1861 James and Hannah Goode were still in Culver Street, Newent. James was a seventy-year-old labourer, born in Newent; Hannah aged sixty-eight – a labourer’s wife born in Newent; and with them was Sarah, aged twenty-three, unmarried, born in Newent and John, a labourer, aged twenty, son, born in Newent.

In 1871 James Goode was still living in Culvert Street. He was described as an eighty-three-year-old labourer (unemployed) born at Oxenhall; his wife Hannah, was aged seventy-seven and born in Newent. Other residents included John, their son, aged twenty-two (actually 31) a labourer, born in Newent and grandson John Goode, aged twelve (illegitimate son of daughter Sarah Anne) a scholar, born in Newent.

James Goode probably died in Jul.-Sep.1871 in Newent Registration District, aged 79, even though he appeared as 83 on the census that year.

In 1881 Hannah Goode was listed as an 85 year old widow.  Still living with her was grandson John, aged 24, wrongly entered as son, and boarder William Waddon aged 19, another grandson and legitimate son of Sarah Anne, so a step brother of John, born in Newent.

Hannah Goode died between Jul.-Sep. 1881 in Newent.

Their children were cousins of Mary Shott, Great III Grandmother:

JAMES GOODE

James was privately baptised on 17th April 1818, Newent, son of James and Charlotte Goode.

In 1851 James Goode, age 38, is living in Grafton Lane, Pendock in Worcestershire, with his wife Mary, age 35.  He is described as a carter born in Newent and she is a glover from Dymock.

They are still in Pendock in 1861; 44 year old James is a farm labourer born in Newent, and Mary is 42 year old with no trade given from Dymock.  They have a lodger, but no children.

1871 records James and Mary Goode at Whiting, Berrow in Worcestershire, he a 57 year old farm labourer and she a 56 year old gloverist.

There is a James Goode listed in the England and Wales Death Index for the quarter Apr.-Jun. 1878, aged 67, in the Upton on Severn Registration District.

CHARLES GOODE

Charles was baptised at Newent on 8th August 1819, son of James and Charlotte Goode.

In 1841 Charles was a male servant for Daniel Mousell, innkeeper at the Ram Inn on Southgate Street, Gloucester

There is a Charles Goode, age 25, sentenced to four months imprisonment for larceny on 20th October 1846 at the Gloucester County Sessions.

In 1851 Charles Goode and his wife Amelia, both born in Newent, are living in Harborne, Staffordshire.  He is described as a 30 year old general labourer and she is listed as aged 32.

They are both recorded on the 1861 Wales census as working at Rockcliff Hall, Leadbrook in Flintshire, he as a 41 year old gardener and she as a cook, aged 42.

In 1871 they are in Birmingham, both aged 54, but unfortunately the census page is too faint to read.  The transcription states they have been recorded as being born in Birmingham, Gloucestershire [!] and alsolists a Mary Royston, age 24, living with them, with her three children, but I cannot tell whether she is a relative or a lodger.  In 1881 Charles and Amelia Goode are back in Harborne, living with Thomas Lester, a 41 year old accountant born at Spon Lane, Staffordshire, and his wife Marianna Lester, also 41, and born in Newent, Gloucestershire.  Charles and Amelia are listed as their uncle and aunt; Charles is a 61 year coachman and Amelia is 64.

They have had no children [unless Mary Royston proves to be a widowed daughter].

THOMAS GOODE

Thomas was baptised on 3rd June 1821, living at Coleford Street, Newent, with parents James and Charlotte Goode.

In 1851 Thomas Goode is a 30 year old agricultural labourer, lodging with Thomas Green and family in Hooks Lane, Newent.  By 1861 he has moved to Bednall, Staffordshire, birth place of his 34 year old wife Ann; he is still an agricultural labourer, aged 38.

In 1871 Thomas and Ann Goode are living at 2 Rawnsby Buildings, Cannock in Staffordshire.  Thomas is listed as an engine driver at a saw mill, aged 50, and Ann is 42; lodging with them is their 7 year old niece, Ann Maria Hankin, born in Ledbury.  Ann, or Hannah as she was baptised, is the daughter of Thomas’s sister Hannah and husband Joseph Hankin.  They have no children of their own.

In 1881 Thomas and Ann Goode are still in Cannock; he is described as a 59 year old engine driver and she is 53.  Hannah (Ann on the 1871 census) is still with them, now aged 17 and listed as a servant, and also John Thomas Goode, a 3 year old nephew born in Hednesford, Staffordshire.

On the 1891 census, Thomas and Ann Goode are living in Ghost Row, Cannock.  Thomas is listed as a colliery engine driver, aged 68, Ann is 63 and 12 year old nephew John is still with them.

Thomas Goode died between Apr.-Jun. 1894, aged 73, in the Cannock Registration District.

In 1901 Ann is living at 1 Ghost Row, Cannock, a 72 year old widow, with her adopted son John, aged 22, a canal coal wharf labourer, born in Hednesford.

HANNAH/ SUSANNAH HANKINS

Hannah was baptised privately on 7th March 1823 from Culver Street, Newent, daughter of James and Charlotte Goode.  Susannah was originally written but has been rubbed out and Hannah written over it.  She is entered as Susannah on the 1841 census, aged 15, perhaps to distinguish her from her step mother, Hannah Packer.

On 29th December 1841at Dymock, Gloucestershire, Hannah married Joseph Hankins, a waterman.  He was of full age, son of a waterman, and she was a minor, daughter of tanner Joseph Goode.  Their first child, John, was baptised at Dymock on27th November 1842.

They do not readily appear on the 1851 census, perhaps because they are on a canal boat, but the family is listed in two very different locations on the 1861 census.  Firstly, they are living on Bye Street, Ledbury in Herefordshire; Joseph Hankins is a 37 year old boatman, born in Ledbury, and Hannah, his wife, is aged 38 and born in Newent, Gloucestershire.  All their children were born in Ledbury – John age 18, also a boatman, Charlotte age 16, James age 9, Joseph age 6, a scholar, and Thomas age 2.  Part of the family is also listed on a form for vessels, recording their canal boat in the Falmouth Registration District of Cornwall!  There is Joseph Hankines (sic) age 41, a boatman born in Ledbury, his wife Anna (Hannah) age 39 born in Newent, son John age 18, also a boatman, and daughter Jane age 12, both born in Ledbury, Herefordshire.  The form is signed with the mark of Joseph Hankines.

A further child was born in Oct.-Dec. 1863, Hannah (Ann) Maria Hankins, but wife and mother Hannah died in Ledbury between Apr.-Jun. 1866, aged 43.  Daughter Hannah is on the 1871 census with aunt and uncle, Thomas and Ann Goode.

Widower Joseph Hankins married Elizabeth, widow of William Cole, in Jul.-Sep. 1870 in the Dudley Registration District.  In 1871 he was living in her home at Slack Hillock, Rowley Regis, Staffordshire, with the youngest of his sons by first wife Hannah, Joseph aged 17 and Thomas aged 14, and was listed as a labourer.  Second wife Elizabeth was given as 46 years old and born in Rowley Regis, with four of her six children – Edward Cole aged 18, John 15, David 12 and Joseph 8, all born in Rowley Regis.

By 1881 they were at 82 Springfield Lane, Rowley Regis, with just David and Joseph Cole living with them.  They are at the same address in 1891 with Joseph described as a retired general labourer, aged 69, and Elizabeth a year younger.  Boarding with them was John Lester, a 61 year old single man living on his own means – maybe related to the Thomas Lester, nephew to Charles and Amelia Goode – and John Cole, a 63 year old widowed coal miner.

In 1901 Joseph and Elizabeth Ankin (sic) are still at 82 Springfield Lane, Rowley Regis, with boarder John Laister (sic) now listed as blind.  Joseph Hankins died between Apr.-Jun. 1904 aged 82.

HENRY GOODE

Henry was baptised privately on 23rd November 1824 from Culver Street, Newent.  He was at home aged twelve at the time of the 1841 census.

In 1851 Henry Goode was listed as a 25 year old labourer, lodging with the family of George Lewis (to become his brother-in-law in 1855) and fellow lodger 24 year old Charles Packer, his non-related ‘step brother’, the illegitimate son of his step mother, Hannah.

On 1st August 1855 Henry Goode married Elizabeth Goode (nee Lewis) widow of James Goode, at St. Nicholas Church, Gloucester.  She had married her first husband on 27th May 1838 at Newent; he was residing at The Squirrel, Newent, but gave no father on the marriage certificate.  The 1841 census listed them at The Squirrel with a 2 year old son, James, but by the 1851 census Elizabeth was a widow, living with her four children with her widowed mother and younger siblings on Culvert Street, two doors along from Henry Goode who was lodging with her brother George Lewis.

In 1861 Henry and Elizabeth Goode were living in Culver Street, Newent, aged 38 and 41 respectively.  With them was Ella (Ellen) Elizabeth’s 14 year old daughter by her first husband, and their children, Charlotte aged 5 and Charles 3, all born in Newent.

They are in the same place in 1871; Henry was described as a 46 year old labourer, Elizabeth was 50 and a laundress, Ellen was a 24 year old gloveress, Charlotte was 15 and Charles 13.  Also with them was a one year grandson, William J. Goode, born in Bredon, Worcestershire.

Elizabeth’s mother, Elizabeth Lewis, aged 77, lived next door.

Henry Goode died during Apr.-Jun.1880, age 53, in the Newent Registration District.

On the 1881 census, Elizabeth Goode, a 60 year old widow, was still a laundress on Culvert Street, Newent, but in 1891 at the age of 70 she was a sweet shop keeper.  In 1901 she was living on her own account, aged 80, with daughter Charlotte Owen and her family on Broad Street, Newent, but died the following year during Apr.-Jun.1902.

JOB GOODE

Job is entered in the Newent baptism register as a twin son of James and Charlotte Goode.  He was baptised privately on 22nd February 1827, but buried two days later on 24th February.

CHARLES and JANE GOODE

Charles and Jane Goode are listed on the 1841 census as son and daughter of James and Hannah Goode, aged 10 and 8 respectively.  However, they are in fact both illegitimate children of Hannah before her marriage and are four years older than stated.  The Newent baptism register listed Charles Packer as being baptised on 4th March 1826, and Jane Packer on 30th November 1828.  Charles Packer appeared on the 1851 census lodging alongside Henry Goode with the family of George Lewis.

JOSEPH GOODE

Joseph was baptised on 13th February 1831. He was at home aged seven years at the time of the 1841 census. In 1851 he was at home, aged twenty, a labourer, born in Newent.  By 1861 he had married Elizabeth of Linton, Herefordshire, and moved to Pendock in Worcestershire.

The census described him as Joseph H. Goode, a 32 year old labourer born in Newent, and Elizabeth as 31 years old, born in Historinum (?) Gloucestershire! They have a 9 month old son, James, born in Pendock.

In 1871 the family was in Castle Church, Staffordshire, at Hydes (sic) Lea.  Joseph was recorded as a 40 year old coachman born in Needwood, Staffordshire, and Elizabeth was listed as being 41 and born in Aston, Staffordshire.  Their children were James aged 10, Joseph 7 and William 4, all supposedly born in the Castle parish, Staffordshire.  Both Joseph and William had died by the next census.

In 1881 Joseph and Elizabeth Goode were still at Hyde Lea in Castle Church; Joseph was a 48 year old coachman born in Newent, Gloucestershire, and Elizabeth was erroneously given as 54 years old from Aston, Herefordshire.  With them was their 19 year old son James, once again born in Pendock, Worcestershire, and 10 year old daughter Mary T. Goode, born in Castle Church, Staffordshire.

1891 saw the family still in Hyde Lea, Castle Church, Joseph now an agricultural labourer at 61 years of age, Elizabeth at 58, restored to her birth place of Linton, Herefordshire, and daughter Mary T., now 19 years old.  In 1901 their address is the same but Joseph was described as a gardener, aged 71, Elizabeth was 68 and Mary was 29 and still unmarried.

Wife Elizabeth died during Oct.-Dec. 1907 aged 74 in the Stafford Registration District, leaving Joseph as a widower on the 1911 census, listed as a jobbing gardener, aged 81.  Living with him at Hyde Lea, near Stafford, was his 50 year old labourer son James, also a widower, curiously born in Rising Brook, Staffordshire, and William, a 13 year old grandson born in Wasall (presumably Walsall) Staffordshire.

Joseph Goode died between Oct.-Dec. 1914 aged 85 in the Stafford Registration District.

WILLIAM GOODE

William was baptised on 5th May 1833. He was at home aged six at the time of the 1841 census. In 1851 he was at home, aged eighteen, a labourer, born in Newent.

William Goode married Martha Gibbons on 25th April 1858 in Putley, Herefordshire, as stated on the banns read at Newent.

In 1861 William and Martha Goode were living at Cliffords Mean (?) Newent; he was a 28 year old agricultural labourer born in Newent, and she was 35 and born in Redmarley D’Abitot, Worcestershire.  They do not readily appear on the 1871 census, but by 1881 they lived at Cues Lane, Newent, where William was a 47 year old agricultural labourer and Martha was 57.  There were no children.

In 1891 William and Martha Goode lived on the High Street, Newent, he listed as a general labourer aged 58, and she as being 67.  Martha Goode died during Apr.-Jun. 1899, aged 75, leaving William a 65 year old widower on the 1901 census, still on the High Street, Newent.

However, he married Maria Reynolds in Jul.-Sep.1902 in the Newent Registration District, the widow of Joseph Reynolds, originally Maria Swift.  She first married in 1869 and had eight children before her husband died in 1893, aged 56.  William and Maria Goode are listed on the 1911 census as living on the High Street, Newent; William is a general labourer aged 80, and Maria is 65 and born in Dymock, Gloucestershire.  With them is Maria’s youngest daughter Ellen, aged 24 and unmarried, also born in Dymock.

William Goode died during Apr.-Jun. 1915, aged 84; Maria Goode died in 1919 aged 73.

SARAH GOODE

Sarah Goode was baptised on 29th January 1835, but buried on 13th August 1836, Newent.

SARAH ANNE WADDON

Sarah Anne was baptised on 27th May 1838. She was at home aged two years at the time of the 1841 census. In 1851 she was at home aged twelve and born in Newent, and in 1861 was still at home, aged twenty-three, unmarried, and born in Newent.  In 1857 she had an illegitimate child, baptised John on 19th April at Newent; he was with his grandparents James and Hannah Goode on the 1871 census, aged 12.  On 30th September 1861, Sarah married John Waddon, a 25 year old labourer residing at Lea Barley.  The marriage index lists the church as Holy Trinity, Drybrook, Gloucestershire, but the name on the certificate is Dean Forest in the district of Holy Trinity.

In 1871 John and Sarah Waddon were living on Culvert Street, Newent.  John was a farm labourer aged 35 and born in Ryeson, Somerset, Sarah was aged 34 and born in Newent, and their children were William 10, Charles 5 and Emily 2, all born in Newent.  Another child, Sarah Anne, was baptised at Newent on 7th August 1864, but there seems to be no further trace of her. The 1881 census records the family surname as Wadding, still in Culvert Street, Newent.  John is a 46 year old labourer, supposedly born in Kison, Herefordshire.  (Although born in Somerset, he spent most of his youth in Weston under Penyard, Herefordshire.)  Sarah A. was 45 years old, with children including Charles 14, Emily 12, Mary H. (actually Mary Anna) 9, Martha 6 and Alice 4.

In 1891 John Waddon was a 56 year old drainer’s labourer living in Culvert Street with 54 year old wife Sarah, both born in Newent.  There are no children listed in the household.

By 1901 Sarah Waddon is a 63 year old widow living with her son William, a 40 year old farm labourer, and his wife Fanny, aged 43.  They were all born in Newent and still resided in Culvert Street.

In 1911Sarah Waddon is once again in Culvert Street, now 73, and still living with son William and his wife Fanny, aged51 and 54 respectively.  William is a farm labourer and Fanny’s place of birth is given as Dymock.  Their surname has been badly transcribed as Daddon.  Living with them is Harry Waddon, a six year old nephew born in London.  The census recorded that Sarah had had eight children, seven of whom were living and one had died.

Sarah A. Waddon died in December 1916 aged 78 in Newent.

JOHN GOODE

John was baptised on 13th January 1840 at Newent. He was at home aged one year at the time of the 1841 census. In 1851 he was at home aged ten years; in 1861 he was still at home, unmarried, and described as a twenty-year-old labourer, born at Newent.

The 1871 census recorded that John Goode was still living on Culvert Street with his parents, James aged 83, an unemployed labourer, and Hannah, aged 77. Also there was another John, a 12 year old grandson, born in Newent.  The age given to John the son, that of 22 years, was wrong, as he would have been nearer 31; also, father James would be in his late seventies.  The younger John was the illegitimate child of Sarah Anne Goode (see above).

John Goode married Johanna M. Perks, widow of Richard Perks, on 3rd May 1874 at Newent, witnessed by Mary Ann Lewis.  Johanna’s maiden name was Clinton and she was born in Much Marcle, Herefordshire, in 1835.  She had an illegitimate son, William Henry, baptised in 1859 at St. James the Less, Ashted, Warwickshire, and he is with her on the 1861 census living with her married sister in Aston.  Johanna Maria Clinton married Richard Perks in Jul.-Sep. 1863 but they don’t seem to have had any children together.  Her son William was with his grandmother, Susannah Clinton, and family, as William Perks on the 1871 census at Kempley Green, Gloucestershire.

In 1881 John and Joannah Goode were living on Culvert Street, Newent, next door to married sister Sarah Waddon and family on one side, and two doors down from his widowed mother Hannah Goode on the other.  Their ages were given as 32 and 54 respectively but they were actually 41 and 46.  This was confirmed on the 1891 census when they were recorded as being 51 and 56, still on Culvert Street, with no children.  John was described as a gardener, whereas he had been a labourer on the 1881 census.  Next door was baseborn John Goode and his young family, and three doors away were William Waddon and his family, both sons of his sister Sarah Anne Waddon (nee Goode).

Johanna Maria Goode died during Jul.-Sep. 1893 aged 60.


ELIZABETH GOODE, Great V Aunt of Richard Barton

Elizabeth was baptised on 1st December 1796.


JOHN GOODE, Great V Uncle of Richard Barton

John was baptised on 22nd August 1799.


 

THOMAS GOODE, Great V Uncle of Richard Barton

Thomas was baptised on 22nd August 1801.

He married Mary Bradley on 21st July 1822 at Dymock, Gloucestershire.

In 1841 Thomas was a forty-year-old labourer, his wife Mary, aged thirty, and their children Richard aged ten, Henry aged five and Peter aged one year.  Other children not listed at home include George aged 16 years, Charles aged 14 and Thomas 12.

In 1851 the family was living at Stoney Bridge, Kilcott, Newent. Thomas Good (sic) was described as a forty-nine-year-old agricultural labourer born in Oxenhall. His wife, Mary Anne, was aged forty-eight and born at Dymock. Their children included Susan, a twenty-eight-year-old glover born at Dymock; Richard, aged twenty, an agricultural labourer born in Oxenhall; Peter aged eleven and born at Oxenhall; Robert aged seven and born at Newent; Jane aged nine and born in Newent, and Selina aged four and born in Newent. The four youngest were all described as scholars.  In actual fact both Jane and Selina are illegitimate daughters of Thomas’s eldest daughter Susan, as can be seen in the Newent Baptism Register; Jane baptised on 6th March 1842 and Selina on 20th December 1846.

The 1861 census finds Thomas Goode at New Street, Newent. He was described as married, aged sixty, an agricultural labourer; born at Oxenhall. With him were Peter, aged twenty-two, an agricultural labourer; Jane aged nineteen and Robert aged sixteen. All three were born in Newent.  Again, Jane is actually the daughter of Thomas’s eldest daughter, Susan.  Her sister Selina, aged 14, is living with her mother and husband William Beard and family in Dymock.  I cannot find any further trace of Jane, but Selina was entered as a servant at Shipton Sollars, Gloucestershire, on the 1871 census.  In both 1881 and 1891 she was cook at Pembridge House, Leckhampton, and eventually married, at the age of 54, William Waring, a 61 year old widower, at Leckhampton on 9th September 1900.  The marriage certificate records her father as Thomas Goode which, hopefully, was a matter of expediency!

In 1871 Thomas and Mary-Anne were living in Church Street, Newent. He was described as a seventy-year-old labourer, born in Oxenhall, and his wife as sixty-eight and born in Dymock.

Their children were cousins of Mary Shott, Great III Grandmother:

SUSAN BEARD

Susan Goode was baptised on 15th December 1822 in Dymock.

In 1841 she was living at The Squirrel, Newent, aged 20, next door to Elizabeth Goode who would marry her cousin Henry as a second husband in 1855.

Susan had two illegitimate daughters, Jane baptised in Newent on 6th March 1842, and Selina baptised on 20th December 1846, also in Newent.  They are both on the 1851 census as daughters of Susan’s father Thomas and his wife Mary.  Susan married William Beard on 14th December 1852 in Oxenhall, and by the 1861 census was living at Hillend Green, Dymock, William was an agricultural labourer, aged 43, and Susan was a 38 year old dressmaker.  They had three children, Fanny aged 7, William aged 6 and Elizabeth aged one;  they had also had another son, Henry, in 1856, but he died the following December.  Fourteen year old Selina is also listed with the household, with the surname Beard – she would revert to her surname of Goode on later censuses – but other daughter, Jane, is still with Thomas and Mary Goode in Newent.

On the 1871 census Susan Beard, aged 46, and married, was recorded as visiting her 17 year old daughter Fanny at Llancayo in Usk, Monmouthshire, where she was working as a servant for farmer and surveyor John Hill, originally from Dymock.  In the far column of the page it was noted that John Hill had a diseased head, his wife was deaf and his brother-in-law was ruptured!  Back at Hillend Green, Dymock, William Beard, a 54 year old labourer appeared to have another wife, Elizabeth, aged 42 and born in Dymock.  Children Mary Ann aged 9 and Charles aged 5 were baptised to William and Susan in Dymock, but I cannot find an entry for 3 year old Ester (sic) despite being on the national Birth Index as Hester Beard, born during Oct.-Dec. 1867 in the Newent Registration District.  Also recorded is 4 year old grand-daughter Emily Goode, who is on later censuses as Emily Beard, and witnessed the marriage of Mary Ann Beard to William James Boyce Buxton as such in 1886 in Tottenham.

Unfortunately I cannot find William or Susan Beard on the 1881 census, and the house at Hillend Green was listed as unoccupied.  All the children had dispersed, working as servants both locally and as far away as London.

However, in 1891, Susan Beard, aged 68, was back at Hillend Green, Dymock, entered as a 68 year old widow and grocer, William Beard having died and been buried on 3rd February 1891 at Dymock.  With Susan was her daughter Mary Buxton, already widowed at 29 years of age with her son Henry, aged three.  Charles Beard, 24 year old son, and Susan’s brother George Goode, a 66 widower, were also in the household, both agricultural labourers.

In 1892 Mary Ann Beard married again, to John Charles Hollands, in Pauntley, and the marriage was witnessed by the elusive Esther Beard.  Susan Beard died in 1899, aged 77, buried at Dymock on 30th May.

GEORGE GOODE

George was baptised on 30th January 1825 at Oxenhall.  He married Eliza Hinder on 8th December 1846 in Standish, Gloucestershire, and by 1851 had two children.  The family lived at Haresfield, Gloucestershire; George was a 28 year old agricultural labourer, Eliza was aged 27, born in Whaddon, Gloucestershire, with Charles aged 3 and Alfred aged 1, both born in Haresfield.

In 1861 George and Eliza Goode were living at Upper Green, Haresfield, aged 35 and 34 respectively.  George was a carter with six children – Charles 13, Alfred 11,William 6, Thomas 4 and Peter 2 – all born in Haresfield.

By 1871 the family had moved to Coldthorpe, Standish; George and Eliza were both 47, with children Henry 19, William 16, Peter 12, Esther Ann 6, Dora 3 and James 10 months, the last three being born in Standish.  They had two other daughters, Mary who was born in 1861 at Haresfield, but died in October 1863 and was buried at Standish, and Selina, born in June 1863, and recorded on the census, aged 8, with an aunt and uncle in Gloucester.

In 1881 George and Eliza Goode were both 58 and living at 2 Cross Cottage, Standish; also in the household were 13 year old daughter Dora, and 10 year old son James, and also nephew John Hinder, aged 17.

Eliza Goode died in 1889 and was buried at Haresfield on 23rd April, aged 65.  George was on the 1891 census living with his sister, Susan Beard, at Dymock, but died in Tuffley the following year, and was buried at Haresfield on 3rd September 1892.

CHARLES GOODE

Charles was baptised on 16th January 1827 at Oxenhall, and in 1851 he was an agricultural labourer for local farmer Robert Thurston at Holders, Oxenhall.

Charles Goode married Caroline Taylor on 25th May 1852 in Oxenhall as a 25 year old labourer, the marriage witnessed by Thomas Goode and Susan Goode.  However, Caroline died just four years later and was buried at Newent on 4th September 1856, aged 30.  Charles married again on 31st August 1858 in Kempley to Sarah Panter; he was a 33 year old waggoner , and she was 25, and it was witnessed by Thomas Goode and Sarah Goode.

In 1861 he was living at Upper House, Kempley, a 34 year old agricultural labourer, with wife Sarah aged 28 and born in Ashleworth, Gloucestershire.  Their only child, Henry, was born in 1860 in Kempley, aged 7 months on the census.

In 1871 the family were at Four Oaks, Dymock, Charles aged 44, Sarah 37 and Henry 10.  Charles Goode died later the same year and was buried at Dymock on 29th August 1871.

On the 1881 census Sarah and Henry are recorded in Dymock, she a 47 year old widow and washerwoman, and Henry a 20 year old wagoner.  In 1891 they are still in Dymock, Sarah aged 57, and Henry a 30 year old gardener – servant.

Henry Goode married Mary Jane Orchard in July 1894 in Dymock.  In 1901 his mother Sarah is listed in the Newent Union Workhouse, aged 68, from where she died nine years later, and was buried in Dymock on 19th October 1910, aged 77 years.

THOMAS GOODE

Thomas was baptised at Oxenhall on 7th June 1829.  He married Sarah Manns on 11th December 1847 in Kempley, where both he and his father were described as husbandmen on the marriage certificate.  Thomas and Sarah had witnessed the marriage of her brother Joseph to Ann Beard a month earlier on 9th November at Kempley, and so they returned the favour.

In 1851 Thomas and Sarah Goode were living in Dymock Ryland where he is listed as a 31 year old agricultural labourer, and she is 28 years old and supposedly born in Redmarley D’Arbitot, Worcestershire.

In 1861 they were living on Kempley Green, Thomas was a 33 year old carter and Sarah was 30.  Lodgers included her parents, John and Mary Manns; John was the parish clerk aged 75, and his wife was 65 years of age and born in Derry, Ireland.

1871 saw Thomas and Sarah Goode still on The Green, Kempley, he was a 43 year old farm labourer and she was 41 and born in Kempley.  They had no children.

Thomas and Sarah Goode were in Kempley on the 1881, 1891 and 1901 censuses, on the latter living at the French House, aged 73 and 72 respectively.

Thomas died in 1903 and was buried in Kempley on 17th November 1903, aged 74 years – R.I.P was written in the margin of the Burial Register.  Sarah died in 1908 and was buried on 7th February 1908, also in Kempley, aged 78 years.

RICHARD GOODE

Richard was baptised at Oxenhall on 2nd December 1830. He was at home aged ten in 1841 and a twenty-year-old agricultural labourer in 1851.

On 12th April 1856 he married Sarah Duggan at Foy.

In 1876 Richard married Eliza Elsmore in Newent Registration District.

In 1881 Richard Goode was a waggoner at Hill Eaton, Foy. He was a forty-eight-years-old and born at ‘Hoxnall’. His wife was now Eliza aged forty-four from Foy. Catherine, their one-year-old was described as a waggoner’s daughter born in Foy.

Henry doesn’t readily appear on the 1861 census, nor can I find details of his marriage, but he turns up in 1871 in Longhope, Gloucestershire, a 36 year old agricultural labourer living at Chestgrove House and born in ‘Oxnell’, with his wife, Eliza, aged 26 and born in Linton, and 3 year old daughter Alice, born in ‘Oxnell.
