    Conveying young children on Sunday School treat 
    • I can't be sure that Edwin was the Mr. Goatham referred to in the following article which appeared in The South Eastern Gazette, but since he was a carrier it seems most likely.
      If it wasn't him I think it was most likely his brother Amos (a baker, maybe with a baker's car? - in another article he is recorded as being the cart driver in an accident), or Elisha - unlikely to have still been an errand boy when he died.

      Faversham ... Sunday School Treat. - The annual summer treat of the Congregational Church Sunday School took place on Thursday. The children to the number of about 450, met in Partridge-lane at one o'clock, and went in procession (the little ones being conveyed in vans kindly lent by Messrs. Attaway, Breeze, Chambers, Goatham, and Rowland), to the Home Park, at Syndale, the use of which was granted by Mr. Henry Murton. The usual pastimes were indulged in, and an excellent tea was provided for both children and friends, the latter being so numerous that they had to sit down in three parties. It is estimated that at one time there were between 1,200 and 1,300 persons in the park.
    Occupation From 1877 to 1881  Anchor Inn, Abbey Street, 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 
    Publican and carrier 
    • From the 1881 census, also whilst shown as a carrier when his son Herbert Edwin was baptised in 1877, his abode was the Anchor Inn so I guess he was publican then.

    • 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.

    Parish Register entry for the marriage of my gt gt grandparents (my only 2xgt grandparents to marry before the registration of BMDs began). This is from the registers for the now redundant Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Chatham, Kent.
    Occupation to 1887 
    Hop picking 
    • 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.

      Sarah married John Goatham then Edwin; the marriage cert. of Sarah and John confirms it was this John. (n.b. marrying 2 brothers like this was illegal till 1921, but I believe it happened not infrequently)
