    • Shown as 'Chimney Sweeper' when his daughters married in 1870, as a 'chimney sweep's master employing 1 man' in the 1871 census.
      In on Sat 17 April, 1869 a short article appeared in The Faversham Mercury (p.2, col. 6) entitled 'Quarrelsome Chimneysweepers'; I'm sure the Mr. Goatham in whose employ they were was Michael Goatham, since I have found no other whose occupation was as a chimney sweep.
      "Borough Police Court.
      ...
      Yesterday.
      (Before the Mayor and C. Bryant, Esq.)
      Quarrelsome Chimneysweepers. - Joseph Partridge and Michael O'Hara, two chimneysweepers in the employ of Mr. Goatham, were charged under the Bye Laws with fighting in the public streets on the previous day. P. C. Adey stated that at about 2 o'clock on Thursday afternoon he found the prisoners fighting in West-street. They were both on the ground when he went up, and their soot-bag and machine were lying in the road. He took the prisoners into custody. - Mr. Goatham attended, and from a statement which he made it appeared that the quarrel arose over some work the prisoners were engaged in. He gave them both good characters, and the Bench fined them each 1s. and 7s. costs. Goatham paid the money."

      Actual date from newspaper BMD column (The Croydon Advertiser and Surrey County Reporter, p.4 col.1; image on FMP, viewed 3 Jun 2017)
      "Goatham. - Feb. 15th, at 81, Summer-road, Croydon, Michael Goatham, aged 76 years."
    Buried 23 Feb 1891  Norwood Cemetery, Norwood Road, Lambeth, 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 
    • The burial register shows Michael as aged 76 years, and as of 41 Sumner Road, West Croydon.
      Seems a little surprising the burial was in Norwood - it was about 4 miles from the Sumner Road address, while Croydon Cemetery was much closer.
      But his grandson, Charles Henry Richmond had been buried there in 1877; maybe the burial was in the same grave. Or, with his daughter Elizabeth and her family living in Norwood Road, maybe Michael and Mercy were at Elizabeth's home and not their own when Michael died.
