    • "Goatham Herbert Edwin of 102 Canterbury road Margate died 9 November 1940 at 36 King-street Maidstone Probate Llandudno 17 December to Alice Maria Goatham widow.
      Effects £495 6s. 1d."

      Although the calendar says 'Probate' it was actually a grant of administration only, there was no will. Early in WW2 the principal registry moved to Llandudno (for the duration). I guess the staff then involved were inexperienced, and with many men away were quite likely working long hours or engaged in extra wartime activities after work and so tired when compiling the calendar. Errors are bound to occur, but were probably more likely at this time.
    Notes 
    • (b 13/5/1863 according to another relation; 20/04/1877 acc to age given when enlisted in WW1)
      With his mother, an errand boy (1891); living with brother Ernest in 1901 (where?); living at 3 Dane Hill Grove, Margate with wife and dau in 1911 (also present in the 6 room house were 3 visitors - holiday makers?)

    • Notice in the Kentish Gazette for Tuesday 28 November 1865 gives the date and place, but no mention of which Church or Registry Office. That it was at St Mary of Charity from page no. from registration index being within the pages for that church, as shown on GOONS GRO place search (members tool)
      The marriage was also announced in the "Kentish Chronicle" on Saturday 02 December 1865,
      "Faversham.- Nov. 18, Mr. Edwin Goatham, to Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Goatham."
      GRO ref: Goatham, Edwin to Goatham, Sarah Elizabeth q4 1865 Faversham RD 2a 1275
      From PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 18 Nov 2016)
      "Marriage solemnized at the Parish Church in the Parish
      of Faversham in the County of Kent
      No. 410, November 18, Edwin Goatham, age: 25, Bachelor, Labourer, residence at time of Marriage: St. Mary's Road, father: Charles Goatham, Labourer
      to Elizabeth Goatham, age: 29, Widow, [no occupation shown], residence at time of Marriage: St. Mary's Road, father: Edward Marshall, Weaver
      Married in the Parish Church according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Established Church after Banns by me, Charles Collins, M. A. Vicar
      The Marriage was solemnized between us, Edwin Goatham, Sarah Elizabeth Goatham
      in the Presence of us, Eleanor X Spendiff (Her mark), William X Spendiff (His mark)"
      (CCA reference: U3/146/1/14, p. 205)

      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)

      GOATHAM - BOURNE
      October 21st Bank Street Wesleyan Chapel, Ashford, Herbert Edwin Goatham to Alice Marian Bourne of Bethersden.

      The large gap between the two daughters may suggest that there had been other children, but not only have none been found in the BMD registration index, but the 1911 census records that at that time Herbert and Alice had had just one child.
