Angmering birth
« on: Saturday 07 October 17 13:27 BST (UK) »
I have the 1941 census informing me that James Goddard was 35yrs old ,so born 1805. Is there any chance any member can inform me maybe from parish records if he was born Angmering and if possible the names of his parents. Regards Eirwen.

His age could have been rounded down to the nearest 5 years in 1841.

Hi
Well, the baptism is indexed - along with a John in 1807 to same parents - on FamilySearch
You can still see the parish register images on the same site, Peter Calvert tells you how to do it here

But FamilySearch doesn't have records for all Sussex parishes and I can't see a likely marriage for Thomas and Sarah indexed?

I fear we may be going off on a tangent.

Is this the 1841 census that you had?

1841
Toll House, Old Shoreham
JAmes Goddard 35 ag lab Y
Ann 30 Y
Charles 8 Y
Ann 6 Y
Sarah 4 Y
Fanny 2 Y

if so, this looks like him in 1851:

1851
Old Shoreham
Joseph 50  bn Houghton
Ann 42 bn Fittleworth
Charles 18
Ann 16
Sarah 14
Fanny 11
Jane 9
George 7
Maria 4
Charlotte 2
Mary 2 mths

No mention of Angmering.

If this isn't the family you are following, then can you give us the details from 1841?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
