    • 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.

    The marriage of Charles Goatham to Sybilla Hunt
    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 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.
