WOODSFORD / GOODWIN Brick Wall
« on: Friday 08 August 08 18:55 BST (UK) »
Hello Everyone,

Today is my first post in Dorset due to the concentration of the surname WOODSFORD.  I am in search of the family of George GOODWIN.  A fellow researcher has passed onto me some information, that in their research for their family, they made a notation that George's parents were:

Benjamin & Mary WOODSFORD

No source was noted at the time they wrote this down and no further information.

Now I don't know if this means:

Benjamin GOODWIN & Mary WOODSFORD .... Or
Benjamin WOODFORD & Mary GOODWIN

The latter meaning that George was base born.  The notation would give me that impression but I could be wrong.

George married Sophia Atwater in St. Margaret of Antioch, Rainham, Kent on April 21, 1806.  Sadly, he did not survive to the 1841 census which gives me no idea where he was from.

George died in 1839 and is buried in Sittingbourne, Kent.  His age is listed in the burial register as 67 making his birth year about 1772.

If anyone has heard of a GOODWIN / WOODSFORD marriage, I would be very interested.

Thank you for looking at my enquiry,
Nancy
