    1841  Friningham, Thurnham, 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 the house of Henry (35, of independant means) and Julia Duppa (aged 21). As well as 2 other servants (one male, one femaile) two others of independant means were present - possibly visitors: Daniel Thorndike, aged 35, a Captain in the Royal Artillery and Bridges Faunce, a 40 year old woman.  
      Recorded as 20 in 1841 census.
      (Ages above 15 supposed to be rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5).
    Occupation Servant 
    1851  9, Beacon Terrace, Tormoham, Devon, 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 time of the census Eliza was in the home of lodging house keeper, Mary Sims and 2 of her daughters.
      It's not clear whether Eliza and a groom were servants based at the lodging house or to a lady visitor who was staying there (44 year old Eleanor Wyott, married, b Grosvenor Sq, London)
    Occupation Lady's maid 
    1861  The Rectory, Hull Road, Sigglesthorne, Yorkshire, 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 time of the 1861 census Eliza was living in the Rectory as a servant  with the elderly Rector, William Hnery Edward BENTINCK, aged 77 and his 79 year old wife Elizabeth Frances. Also present were two visitors, one a  retired housekeeper, the other, a clergyman's daughter a companion. There were eight others described as servants living in, as well as a gardener and his wife next door!
      One of the others described as a servant was not a domestic servant but a school mistress. The primary school in Sigglesthorne is a Church of England one, the Rector may have been involved in setting it up, and was probably in recruiting the school mistress. She was only aged 20, so perhaps he felt it incumbent on him to provide a home for her - or wanted to keep on eye on her.  
      The groom, like the Rector, was from Middlesex but everyone else was born in Yorkshire or Lincolnshire - what was Eliza doing there? Perhaps she responded to an advert, and chose to work far from home in order to see more of the country.
    Occupation Lady's maid 
    1871  12, Robertson Terrace, Hastings, Sussex, 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 
    Visiting 1881  9, Lower Coombe Street, Croydon, Surrey, 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 time of the census Eliza was with William Cooper and his family. William had been married to Rebecca Goatham (Eliza's half sister). Age in '81 given as 50
    Occupation Lady's companion 
    1881 
    • From the 1881 census, but since she was visiting her brother-in-law at the time of the census, to whom she was a companion I don't know.
    Occupation Lady's maid 
    1891  Renpole(?) House, Main Road, Shirehampton, Gloucestershire, 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 
    • Eliza was a servant to Clara Phillipa Miles - a single woman with 6 servants living in, as well as a gardener and coachman in cottages!
    Residence 1901  42, Haldon Road, Wandsworth, London, 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 time of the 1901 census Eliza was described as "living on own means". Presumably she had now retired. Her age was recorded as 76, though I believe she was actually 79.
    Died 18 Nov 1907  “Newlands”, Roseacre, Bearsted, 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 
    • GRO ref: Goatham, Eliza aged 89 q4 1907 Maidstone RD 2a 455
      I am fairly sure this one, no other fits and her age was not always consistently recorded. Probate calendar shows she was a spinster, also agreeing with this Eliza.
    Buried 22 Nov 1907  The Cemetery, Chatham, 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 
    • From burial register (transcribed data on KFHS CD 40)

    • "Goatham, Eliza of Bearstead Kent spinster died 18 November 1907 Probate London 28 December to William Cooper gentleman Effects £558 17s. 2d."
    Notes 
    • Eliza was never in the same place in two consecutive censuses. It seems likely, therefore, that she had various other positions which are not recorded here.

    1. [S47] "Teynham Parish Registers - Volume 14 (CD-ROM 28)," database, Kent Family History Society, accessed 21 Mar 2012), entry for the marriage of George Goatham to Sarah Hunt. (Reliability: 3), 21 Mar 2012.
      576 1819 03 May George GOATHAM otp Sarah HUNT otp B Wm Hunt / Eliz Hunt
      There was also a marriage of a Sarah Hunt to a Richard Friend in Teynham in 1829, but given that this Sarah would by then have been aged about 38 I don't think it was likely to have been her.
