      Details from PR entry (image on Ancestry, viewed 5 Dec 2014) 
      The 1911 census shows that Matthew and Mary had had 7 children but only 3 remained alive; May, Matthew and Frederick

      I believe the other 4 were as shown.
      Esther (Hester) was alive and with them at the time of the 1901 census but not one of the surviving 3 with them in 1911. The other 3 appear to be the only 3 Gothams to be born and die in West Derby RD between 1895 and 1911. 
      There was also a Charles who was born and died in Liverpool Reg District, but as that would make one too many and all the other children births and deaths were in West Derby RD I think Charles was not the son of Matthew and Mary.

    Divorced May 1943 
    • A notice appeared in the Liverpool Evening Express on 21 May 1943 (p.1, col. 4):
      "On the ground of desertion by his wife, Jessie Gotham, a decree nisi was granted in the Divorce Court, today, to Matthew Gotham, of Pugin-street, Kirkdale, Liverpool, thre being no defence to the suit.
      The couple were married in April, 1924, at Toxteth Park, Liverpool. The husband's case was that they spent the first week at the house of his wife's brother in Sutler-street, Liverpool, but not liking that arrangement he discussed with his wife their having a home of their own. She said she preferred to stay where she was and the husband went back to his parents to give her time to think it over.
      On two occasions he provided accommodation for himself and his wife but each time she refused to leave the brother's home."
      (I suspect Sutler-street should be Butler Street, where Jessie was living at the time of the 1939 register, although no brother was then present)
