    • From PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 19 Jun 2019)

      Abode Bredgar, father George shown as a carpenter. Name shown as "Charley Arthur". Officially name at baptism is the right name and a birth registration can be updated - but in this case it was not the version he subsequently used.

      Is the date right? - implies aged about 2.5, though no note in PR to indicate not a baby, but it would appear correct - it is between other baptisms the same day and they are all in chronological order with other entries in the register.
    Gender Male 
    Occupation From 1881 to 1883 
    Stonemason's labourer 
    • In the 1881 census; just recorded as a "working man" in the occupation column when his daughter Jane was baptised so I don't know if he worked as a mason after leaving the army.
      When he joined the army in 1883 he gave his 'trade or calling' as "mason" and answered the question
      'Are you, or have you been, an Apprentice? if so, where? to whom? and for what period?' - "for 3 years to Mr Geere Sittingbourne".
      Recorded as a journeyman stonemason (rather than a coachman on his death certificate.
    Military Service From 5 Jan 1883 to 21 Aug 1883 
    Royal Engineers - Sapper 
    • It is perhaps surprising that Arthur should choose to join the army, given that his older brother had already died as a consequence.

      Joined at Rochester in Jan 1883, but was discharged just 6 months later. He was hosptialised suffering from tonsillitis with acute rheumatism, from 21 Feb to 15 April, when he was discharged to sick furlough.
      However, he needed hospitalising again on 16th June [cause not yet deciphered] and appearing before a medical board at Chatham on 19th July was found 'unfit for further service'.
      In consequence, he was discharged.

      His military history sheet has 2 entries, one for 5 Jan to 31 July 1883, the other for 1 Aug to 21 Aug 1883, and his statement of services shows similar.
      His conduct during his brief spell in the army was described as 'good'.

      The banns register entry has a date which is presumably that of the marriage. Since both were of the parish presumably that is where the marriage took place.

      Arthur and Annie were together, with their daughter, at the time of  the 1891 census (night of 5th / 6th April), but in September Arthur put a notice in the Chatham News, telling tradesmen he would no longer be answerable for any debts contracted by his wife, suggesting she may have left him by then:
      "Notice to Tradesmen,
      I hereby give notice that I will not be
      answerable for any Debts contracted by my
      Wife, Annie Goatham, after this date.
        Arthur Goatham."
