      Arthur and Annie were together, with their daughter, at the time of  the 1891 census (night of 5th / 6th April), but in September Arthur put a notice in the Chatham News, telling tradesmen he would no longer be answerable for any debts contracted by his wife, suggesting she may have left him by then:
      "Notice to Tradesmen,
      I hereby give notice that I will not be
      answerable for any Debts contracted by my
      Wife, Annie Goatham, after this date.
        Arthur Goatham."
