Thanks for the thoughts. The watch inscription says "Susan Fletcher, from Mrs C.H.Goode, Nov 26th, 1874."

She could well have moved to London between and worked for Mrs Goode in London if indeed that was the reason for the gift. There are no Goode surnames in the family as far as I know and if it was a family/friend gift the inscription would not have been so formal I think.

I am also assuming that the C H are Mrs Goode's husband's initials although they could of course be her own.........

Do you have her birth date - could it have been a 21st birthday present
