  • Notes  Married:
    • I'm not sure that there was a relationship between James and Henrietta, other than that she was his housekeeper, but it seems likely.
      When Henrietta's son married in 1919 he did so in Scotland where the marriage registration forms have a space for mother's name and surname. Her name was given as 'Henrietta Goatham was McGeorge'. Did William give his mother's name like this because she was living as though Mrs McGeorge, but being himself a Goatham he switched the current and 'was' names around to hide his illegitimacy? Or did the name simply occur to him because he knew his mother's employer was a James McGeorge?
