John KIDSON
« on: Wednesday 28 October 09 05:41 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,
My great-aunt has been trying to find the birth of John KIDSON for a very very long time.

She has just turned 80 and I would like to try and find the information for her as a surprise.

We think John KIDSON was born c1808 at Windsor. His parents names are unknown but his father's name might be Thomas GODDARD who owned an inn.
He either attended Eton College as a student or he worked there.
John was a gardener at the Royal Gardens and married Amelia TUCK who was a lace maker for Queen Victoria.
They named their first child Catherine.
They came to NZ in 1842.

My aunt has been in contact with Eton College but they didn't hold any information regarding John's birth.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Sincerely
Belinda

Hi Judi,
Was it common for children to be christened and have no parents or location recorded?

In a letter he wrote to Reverend Henry DUPOIS John wrote: Please give my kind love to to my father Thomas GODDARD at the Bull Inn in Pescod Street; he is the only relation I have, tho I dare not wright to him. I must still own him.

We thought John's mother may have been a maid at the Inn but died during childbirth.
