    • Sometime between 1904 and 1906 Walter seems to have switched from being a fruit dealer to a farmer - or to have added another string to his bow. Still a farmer in 1910, by the time of the 1911 census Walter was a dealer in Sittingbourne. Possibly he had had to give up the farm after a fire in August 1910, which was reported thus in the South Eastern Gazette (9 Aug, 1910, p. 6, col. 4, in the section entitled "County News"):
      "Norton
      Farm fire.
      - On Wednesday morning a fire broke out in a barn at Little Rushet Farm, in the occupation of Mr. Goatham. The flames rapidly spread and involved all the farm buildings, and when the Faversham Fire Brigade arrived they found the farmhouse just catching alight. The house and contents were saved, but all the farm buildings were destroyed, the damage being estimated at from £600 to £700. Mr. Goatham was away from home at the time. The cause of the fire is not known."
