'TOODSTICH' Unique Name or incorrect spelling?
« on: Friday 07 January 05 08:40 GMT (UK) »
I have come across a Jesse Toodstich in the 1871 Census, born c.1849 in Calne, Wiltshire. Living in London at the time of the Census Possibly has a sister Eliza born c 1844.
I would like to trace the parents but can't find any other person on the Census, BMD or anywhere on the internet with this Surname, can you help?

Thanks

You don't think this may be Goodstich or Goodstick? This is not a great image but I see a G not a T. ???
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.

There is an Eliza Goodship born in Calne in 1843:


Births Sep 1843
Cleverly    Eliza         Calne    8   264   
FREEGARD    Elizabeth         Calne    8   26[16]   
Goodship    Eliza         Calne    8   *   
Hughes    Elizabeth         Calne    8   262   
Long    Elizabeth         Calne    8   266   
Robins    Elizabeth         Calne    8   264   
WILKINS    Eliza         Calne    8   264   

I also think it looks a bit more like a G than a T on the image.

Regards,

Emily

And I found this on the freeBMD site that might possibly be Jesse?

Births Jun 1848
Goodship    *se         Calne    8   305   

Obviously someone in that family didn't have very readable handwriting :)


And whilst trying to convince myself that it really could be Goodship (although the end does look more like stick on your image I found:
1891 census:
    Goodship, Jesse     41     location, Wiltshire     Head     location     London

But I don't have complete access to the census so maybe someone else can tell you the rest of the household. Couldn't find him in 1881 although there were quite a lot of other Goodships from Wiltshire.

Thanks for all the help, it's falling into place now. I've got Ellen Brown, daughter of Eliza living with Mary & John Goodship in Theobalds Green, Calne and is down as Niece (1871 Census). So simple when it's been pointed out.
Thanks once again.
