    • From PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 13 Apr 2013)
      "June 4th. p No. 1557., Charles son of Charles and Cybella Goutham, abode: Standard Quay, father's occupation Labourer, John Birt Vicar" - under heading 'Baptisms in the Parish of Faversham in the County of Kent in the Year 1842'
      I suspect 'p' means 'private baptism' and that the baptism was at Standard Quay rather than in Church.

      A cleft lip (the term 'hare lip', used because of the resemblance to the lip of a hare, is now considered insulting) could make it difficult for a baby to feed, and thus as would seem to be the case with Charles a baby could die from lack of sufficient nourishment. (Wikipedia article)

    • 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.
