 Set As Default Person    


  • Name Elizabeth Gotham TARR 
    Suffix [ONS gp] [G-D(TM)] 
    Relationshipwith Andrew GOTHAM
    Born 26 Aug 1844  Olchard, Ideford, 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 
    • Birth details from birth registration information
    Gender Female 
    Middle name Her maternal grandmother's maiden name, also a middle name of her mother 
    Child Status Illegitimate (no sign of parental relationship) 
    Died
    • Possible death registration -
      GRO ref: TARR, Elizabeth q3 1862 aged 17 St Thomas RD 5b 49
      The age is right, but if this is this Elizabeth, where was she in the 1861 census?

      OR
      GRO ref: Gardner, Elizabeth Gorham [sic] aged 39 Brentford RD 3a 65
      Although clearly Gorham in the paper index (image on FreeBMD), the transcription of a burial entry and the new GRO online index both record Elizabeth's middle name as Gotham.
      I cannot find the marriage of a Gardner to an Elizabeth TARR or NOTLEY (quick search, exact spellings), but more research needed to see if this Elizabeth could have become a Gardner (e.g. by two marriages)
      There seems no birth registration of an Elizabeth Gorham (any surname) during the appropriate period which encourages me to think this may be this Elizabeth.
    Notes 
    • With her grandparents at the time of the 1851 census.
    • (Research):I don't know what became of Elizabeth after the time of the 1851 census.
      I have not found her in any other census, nor a marriage nor a death registration that was clearly her.

      I thought she could be the Elizabeth Tarr who married John Netherway in 1878; the PR entry for the marriage shows an age and a father's name which are wrong, which makes less likely. The census entry for this couple in the 1881 census shows the wrong birthplace and persists with the wrong age. In addition looking for an Elizabeth to match (dob, birthplace and father) in earlier censuses finds one which is a much closer match than this Elizabeth. Hence I do not think it was this Elizabeth who married John Netherway.

      The above searches assume she would be recorded as Elizabeth TARR, possible with a middle name or initial. I have also looked for her as a Notley (her mother's married name, from when Elizabeth was 6) and not found her.
