    • Since the 3 children of Charles and Sybella born between 1835 and 1839 were baptised in Wormshill I guess is this where the family were living.
      Since Charles was almost 30 when he married and did labouring jobs subsequently, I guess he was a labourer before his marriage and probably moved around according to where he was working rather than living in Bredgar with his parents. He may well have met Sybella through living in Wormshill prior to 1835.

      Frinsted is an adjoining parish to Wormshill, and the tithe award schedule, signed 30th March 1841, shows a Charles Goatham as the occupier of 3 quarters of an acre of arable charity land. I suspect it was land occupied by this Charles before the family moved into Faversham.
    Residence Abt 1840  A Cottage, Wormshill, Kent, 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 
    • Charles (and presumably his family, which at the time consisted of his wife Sybilla and 3 oldest children, John, Maria and Edwin) lived in a house very close to where the four parishes Finsted, Milstead, Bredgar and Wormshill meet. The tithe commutation maps show that Charles was the occupier of a house and garden and also of two arable fields in Wormshill parish, a total acreage of just over two and a half acres, all of which were owned by Milstead parish, and also of a small part field in Frinsted (about three quarters of an acre). The latter is shown as charity land, and was part of charity land contiguous with the fields owned by Milstead parish. Maybe the charity land was also owned by Milstead, part of a single bequest for some charitable purpose in that parish.
      Although Charles had left the parish of his birth he was only about two and a half miles from Bredgar village. Sybilla  

      Charles would have needed other work to support himself and his family, than what he could earn by working his 3 acres. Perhaps it was proving difficult to find, or maybe it was because the income needed was growing with his family that led him to move into Faversha, or maybe town life seemed to offer better prospects.
    Occupation Labourer - various jobs including brewery work 
    From 1841 to 1871  Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • Charles did a variety of jobs, probably all of which could be considered to fall within the general term "labourer". In the 1841 and 1871 where his occupation is thus described without any further detail it could describe an occupation he was known to have or another. On the birth certificate of his son Herbert, born in 1862, he was shown as "General labourer" which suggests he did not then have one of the more specific jobs he held at other times.

      Living by the Quay in the early 1840s Charles may well have worked loading and unloading the ships that came in there. 

      We can probably do no more than speculate as to why Charles' did a variety of  jobs. Was he unable to hold a job down - did he turn up drunk or not work hard enough? Or was it his choice? - maybe looking for better pay, to support his large family, and later in life he probably needed less strenuous work.

      A common theme to a number of his known occupations is working with a horse and cart (or similar) - i.e. scavenger, drayman, carrier. Two of his sons also had jobs which would have meant working with a horse and cart, while 3 became bakers, and may have done some work delivering with horse and cart. Certainly his grandsons, sons of Herbert did, including my grandfather Charlie. I suspect a love of  horses, possibly 'inherited' from his grandfather was why his dream job for my father was jockey. I'm sure Charlie cannot have remembered his grandfather, being only aged 3 when the latter died; if the interest in horses was passed down the family he failed to pass it on, I never knew my Dad show any interest in them at all. (My Dad was short enough, though not quite as short as his father and Goatham uncles)

    • One of 8 households whose abode was shown as Standard Quay in the 1841 census (Standard Road was shown  sepearately and included the Anchor Inn), and nearly all the men were described as labourers.
      By 1851 there seems to have only been one family living in this road, Mark Redman(?), a builder and shipwright who employed 13 men and 3 apprentices - I guess they lived in the big house at the far end.
      The entry for son Charles in the burial register in 1842 shows the address as "Standard" - quay or road? I guess they were still living in the Quay.
    Occupation Town Scavenger 
    1851  Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • I believe this was a similar occupation to what we would now call a road sweeper, except that the amount of material to be cleared up was rather more, in large part due to all the horse-drawn transport. Doubtless the amount of horse dung to be cleared up would have been reduced by those anxious to have some for their gardens, but even so I think Charles would have used a horse and cart to collect the rubbish, and not just a small barrow like today's road sweepers have.

    Miscellaneous Court case after neighbour shot chicken! 
    21 Apr 1854  Town Hall, Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • It seems that Charles was letting his chickens stray onto a neighbour's garden and eat his plants, resulting in the following amusing incident:
      (from The South Eastern Gazette, Tuesday 25 April 1854, p.5 col. 2)


      County Court. - The usual monthly County Court was
      held at the Town-hall, on Friday last. There were
      twenty-five casues on the list.
      ...
      Goatham v. Hawkins. - The plaintiff is the town sca-
      venger and the defendant a blacksmith. The claim was
      for £1, the value of a fowl shot by the defendant. It ap-
      peared the plaintiff's fowls trespass into the defendant's
      garden, and devour his seed and crops. The defendant had
      given the plaintiff notice to stop the annoyance, and then took the law into his own hands and shot one of the fowls.
      3s. had been paid into court. Verdict for plaintiff for 5s.
      Hawkins v. Graham.[sic] - A claim for trespass and loss of
      garden produce arising out of the last case. - Verdict for
      2s. 6d.


      Was his chicken really worth £1? Awarded just 5s for the loss of his chicken but having then to pay half of it back Charles was only gained half a crown by bringing this case - before any expenses and loss of earnings. Surely they should have been able to settle things more amicably!
      (although the second reference shows 'Graham' rather than 'Goatham' I am sure it should have been Goatham as the 1851 census had shown that Charles was the town scavenger)
    Miscellaneous More garden problems - vegetables stolen 
    30 Jul 1857  The Guildhall, Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • "At the Guildhall
      July 30.
      (Before F. F. Giraud, Esq., Mayor.)
      William Pyson was brought up in custody charged
      with stealing 7 cabbages, 1 gallon of potatoes, and
      a quantity of onions, from a garden of Charles
      Goatham. He pleaded guilty, and was ordered to
      be kept to hard labour at St. Augustine's for 21
      days."
      (from The Faversham Gazette and General Advertiser, 8 August 1857, p. 4, col. 2)
    Occupation Carrier 
    From 1860 to 1861  Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • A carrier was one who drove a (horse-drawn) vehicle to transporting goods. This included those who provided a regular service delivering goods between towns and villages.  Once or more a week they deliver to particular places, often with a shop or public house being the collection and delivery point.
      Nineteenth century directories often show the times and routes of the various local carriers.
      This description would seem to cover the occupation that Herbert gave for his father when he applied for his birth certificate - "Brewer's drayman". Whether all of Charles' work as a carrier was for one of Faversham's breweries I don't know.
    Occupation Cow dealer 
    1861  Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • Cow dealer on dau. Maria's marr cert (27 Oct 1861) - but was he doing this at that time or was she remembering him doing that when she was living at home?

    • Not only shown as birthplace of Herbert, but also as Sybella's residence on Herbert's birth cert. Unfortunately, no house number is shown.
      In any case, I'm not sure if the present houses in the street are those that were those that were there in 1862.
    Voting General Election 
    1868  Faversham, Kent, 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 was the first general election after the Reform Act 1867, which had given the vote to many male householders, resulting in a large increase in the number of men who had the vote in UK elections. It was also the last general election before the introduction of the secret ballot, which resulted from the 1872 Secret Ballot Act, and so the only chance to see how many men voted.
      Charles used his votes to vote for Edward Leigh Pemberton and the Hon. George Watson Milles, the two Conservative candidates; his brother Michael only voted for Milles. While both Pemberton and Milles were elected, the Liberals won the election overall, increasing their large majority to over 100 seats.
    Miscellaneous Property stolen (oranges, dates and nuts)  [1
    30 Mar 1871  Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • In a report of the monthly Faversham Borough Petty Sessions which had met on "Wednesday last", published in "The South Eastern Gazette" of Saturday, April 8, 1871 it was reported that "Caroline Hayes, who has been previously convicted of felony, was committed for trial on a charge of entering a house and stealing 12 oranges and some dates and nuts, the property of Charles Goatham, on the 30th ult. From the evidence it appeared that the prisoner had expressed a wish that she might get two or three years for the offence."
      (Present at the Petty Sessions were the Mayor and W. N. Spong, W. Rigdon, C. Bryant and W. Holmes, Esqrs.)

      Another report appeared in "The Kentish Gazette" of 4 April 1871, which shows that the oranges etc. were not kept for the Goatham family to eat, but because they had a shop:
      "Alleged Felony by a Young Woman. - Caroline
      Hayes, 18, was charged before Alderman Fielding,
      Mayor, on Saturday at the Borough Police Court
      with stealing a quantity of. Oranges, nuts, apples,
      dates, &c., value 2s. 6d., the property of Charles
      Goatham, at Partridge-lane, during the night of
      Thursday. - Sibella Goatham, wife of the prosecutor,
      according to her evidence had removed the things
      out of the shop window and placed the oranges, 63 in
      number, and other fruit on the counter. She retired
      to bed a little before 10, leaving the door shut but
      not locked, her son who had not got his latch key
      with him being out. She heard a noise downstaits
      a quarter of an hour afterwards, and was afraid to go
      down. Her son found the place open, and part of
      the fruit was gone on the following morning. Amos
      Goatham, the son, saw the prisoner in Quay-lane at
      10 o'clock. She went in the direction of Partridge-
      lane, and he subsequently saw her enter a building
      occupied by his brother, near the "Two Brewers."
      She had something in her apron. She told him
      shortly afterwards that she had nowhere to go to
      and was completely knocked up. Next morning a
      quantity of date stones,orange kernels, and nut shells
      were strewn about in the building. - Remanded till
      Wednesday."

      Like so many articles in local rags this isn't quite right. Amos is equated with the son for whom the door had been unlocked and he lived in "The Quays" at this time, not the same as Quay Lane but close to it. Only one brother of Amos was living outside of the parental home at this time, Edwin, who was living in Abbey Street, at no. 100, the Church Street side of the Phœnix. Although this is also close to Quay Lane it would surely have been described as next door to the Phœnix rather than near the Two Brewers, so I think it is probable that Amos saw Caroline enter a building near where he, Amos lived and near to the Two Brewers.

    • Probably not now in existence, only a few houses now in this Lane, and they don't include a no. 15 (though could of course have been renumbered to cover just those remaining).
    Occupation Brewer's labourer 
    From 1874 to 1888  Shepherd Neame and Co. Brewery, Faversham, Kent, 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 
    • The 1881 census and Charles' death certificate show him as a labourer for a brewery. When his son Herbert applied for his (Herbert's) birth certificate in 1925 he described his father as a "brewer's drayman" and when he married for a second time in 1925 he described his father as a "malster".
      While brewer's drayman would seem likely to be accurate given other descriptions of his occupation at times as carrier, the description of him as having the more skilled occupation of malster seems more likely to be an attempt by Herbert to raise his father's social standing.

      A newspaper report in 1874 shows that Charles had an accident while working for Shepherd Neame, the brewery still in Faversham and which was almost next door to where Charles was living in the 1880s. I can't be sure he only worked for this brewery, nor the starting date. Just described as a labourer in the 1871 census he could have been in the employ of Shepherd Neame by then. Another brewery, Rigden's, was just across the street.  
    Accident Ankle broken by cask of liquor 
    30 Jul 1874 
    • "Accident. - An elderly man, named Charles Goat-
      ham, in the employ of Messrs. Shepherd, Neame and
      Co., met with an accident on Thursday evening last.
      He was assisting in unloading a dray, when a cask of
      liquor suddenly slipped off, and falling upon him,
      fractured his leg just above the ancle. He was at
      once attended by Mr. Collins, Dr. Gange's assistant,
      who set the fracture, and the sufferer is now ding as
      well as can be expected, considering that he is 70
      years of age."

    • Both the 1881 census and Charles' death cert show the family / Charles as resident at no. 2, Abbey Street.
      Abbey Street was also mentioned when Sybella disappeared in 1887, and more importantly it was shown as the abode of Charles's son Elisha in 1879. Aged 22 he could have left home, but as he was unmarried he most likely was still with his parents and so they probably lived here by 17 Apr 1879.
      Although they subsequently had other homes, they also seem to have lived in Abbey Street (house unknown) in the 1850s as the burial register also shows abode as Abbey Street when 6 year old Frederick died in 1856.

    • Although both Charles and Sybella were shown as "otp" when they married in Chatham, I suspect that this was an address of convenience to enable them to be married here - see my notes about Medway marriages.

      The witness James Goodhew may well have been the James Goodhew who would marry Charles' sister Maria two years later.

      I have not found baptisms for most fo Charles and Sybilla's children; they do not seem to have been baptised at the Parish Church in Faversham. Maybe there is a clue in that in 1875 a Mr Goatham lent his van for conveying children to a Congreational Church picnic; had they started attending or at least having the children baptised at the Congreational Church? - to be investigated.

    Occupation Hop picking 
    to 1887 
    • From the records of the events surrounding Sybilla's death it is clear that she went hop-picking. She had probably done this many years, perhaps almost all of her life. She may well have even been taken along as a baby to the hop fields by her own mother.
      During her married life Charles probably did not accompany her, due to his regular work, but even though living most of it in a town she was still close enough to hop fields to go hop picking from home. The children probably all went too, and assisted in hop picking once they were old enough.
