    Married 1838  St. Mary the Virgin Church, Bucknall, Staffordshire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • This marriage seems to be missing from the GRO index (not found by searching for John as Gotham or Gothan, nor by searching for Elizabeth Simcock) but it is in the index to the local registers on the Staffordshire BMD website.
      This shows (in the index for 1838):
      GOTHAN [sic], John married SIMCOCK, Elizabeth at Bucknall, St Mary's Church, registers      at Stoke-On-Trent, ref. 2/01/055

      Other trees claim 12 Nov 1839 or 12 Nov 1838 in Bucknall Parish Church, Stoke-on-Trent. Looking at images of the PR on FMP I can't find this marriage, but the register is strange - the old style register was being used still, and whilst there were many registers in 1837, hardly any in 1838 or 1839, so it looks like another register may also have been in use.

    • The 1911 census showed that Thomas and Ann had been married for 32 years
      GRO ref: GOTHAM, Thomas to Kelley, Ann q4 1878 Stoke T. RD 6b 320
      Venue from UKBMD website, date from PR entry (image on FMP)

      The 1911 also census shows that Thomas and Ann had had 7 children but only 4 were still living (and only two were with them on census night). Only 4 were found with them on any censuses, 1881 to 1911, so the others must have died as quite young children.
      These can be identified from baptism and burial records; the abode of George Street, which is shown as Thomas and Ann's home at the time of the 1881, 1891 and 1901 censuses shows that they were children of this Thomas.

      Also with Thomas and Ann at the time of the 1911 census were orphaned nephew William (son of Thomas's brother Matthew), a grandson Walter (aged 2) and a border, 48 year old widower Thomas Rowcroft.
