    • I have copies of five notices from The Times of Coast Lists from the London Custom House which mention (Edward) Goatham and his coaster Crown Quay being cleared, all between 15th April and 19th July 1785; the first names Margate, the rest Sandwich. I'm not sure of the significance of this short period - did Edward give up his coaster, or lose it, or did The Times only publish these notices for a short period?
      More investigation needed.

    A child named after Edward 
    • Baptised at St. John's Margate - 27 Dec 1801 - Edward Gotham Thunder

      A child was named after Edward by Thomas and Hannah Thunder in 1801. Sadly he died aged 2, but who were Thomas and Hannah and why did they name a son after him?

      Hannah was born Hannah Bishop in 1773, the youngest child of Corenelius and Susanna. Her mother died about 2 years later, her father when she was aged about 11 in 1784. Older siblings then probably took care of the younger, and I suspect that Elizabeth, wife of Edward, was an older sister and being married by then was able to take in Hannah. Edward could then have been an older brother-cum-father figure to Hannah. Edward and Elizabeth seem to have been childless themselves, which would probably have made Hannah more special to them and their relationships closer.
      This did not stop Edward having to enter the Workhouse in old age, though. I do not know when he entered the Workhouse, whether simply through poverty, or because in his final illness he was no longer able to look after himself.
      Hannah was herself aged 67 when Edward died, and her husband a similar age. Looking after themselves may have been as much as she could manage, especially as they had little family to help them; at least 7 of their 9 children pre-deceased them, most dying in infancy. One son lived to the age of 77, being buried in Margate in 1881 and a daughter married in 1825 to a George Wheeler Bassett, and I have found an Elizabeth Bassett in Canterbury in 1851 who is probably her; at any rate, she does not seem to have been local to her elderly parents in Margate .
    Died 2 Feb 1840  The Union Workhouse, Minster in Thanet, 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 
    Cause: Natural decay from old age 
    • GRO ref: Goatham, Edward q1 1840 Thanet RD 5 351; GRO online index shows age as 82
      Burial register shows age 67 and abode as "Thanet Union" - this means in the Thanet Union Workhouse, which was at Minster
    Buried 6 Feb 1840  St. John the Baptist Church, Margate, 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

    Notes 
    • In 1785 The Times included a number of ship movement notices; a no. of these were for one Goatham, and some specifically Edward. All name the coaster as the "Crown Quay".
    • (Research):I did have a son John attached as a possibility to Edward, the nephew to whom Robert left a bequest. But since I have discovered a son, John, of his brother John I am assuming that was the John Goatham who was left a bequest.
