  • Notes  Married:
    • Date applies if I am right about Evelyn marrying Arthur or Victor Goatham.

      On 3 Feb 1995 one Evelyn Nancy Goatham died and was buried in Karori Crematorium. Aged 84, she was born c. 1910. Since no birth has been found of a Goatham with this name (in New Zealand, Australia or England) I think she was probably a Goatham by marriage. The NZ marriage index only shows marriages over 80 years ago which probably explains why I haven't found a marriage of a Goatham to an Evelyn Nancy.
      Karori was where the family of Frederick William Goatham were buried.
      Both of his sons, Arthur Frederick Goatham and his brother Victor were left widowers relatively young - aged 56 and 60 respectively. I suspect that Evelyn was the second wife of one of them, it could easily have been either but Arthur being widowered younger and being closer in age to Evelyn would seem the most likely candidate.

      The electoral rolls seem to confirm this, Evelyn is to be found living in the same house as Arthur: far more likely that they should be husband and wife than brother and sister-in-law.
