Searching for George Charles Goddard or Harry Goddard of Broome W.A.
« on: Monday 01 April 19 10:00 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I have been trying to find any information in regard to George Charles Goddard shown in 1922 census, as being a Manager at the Star Hotel, Broome Western Australia.     We have some credible information that a Goddard gentleman was the Father of two illegitimate children back in 1924, according to Court Records.   We have no christian names listed in the Court Document, but it is a case taken up by E. Corpus for financial assistance for her two children.

Checking 1922 census, we have two Goddard gentlemen, the above George Charles Goddard and a Harry Goddard, whom we think was a Pearler in Broome, living a the Roebuck Bay Hotel in 1922 census as well.

The Court records are for 1924, and we are desperately trying to find the whereabouts of both of these gentlemen after this date.

If anyone can assist me, would really appreciate that.   Trying to find history of the Star Hotel, also the Roebuck Bay hotel in those days, has been quite difficult.

Thank you Cupoflife that gives me an idea of his life, appears he moved to Margaret River some 3 years after these Court Records of 1924.

Wonder if anyone can assist me with records of his migration to Australia, I have had no luck so far, though I think I found some information on his wife arriving in Fremantle.

Also wondering why he was in Broome?

May be of interest http://www.graemecheeseman.com/samuelschildren.html
George Weavings Goddard (1843-1935) and Harriet Sarah Hickmott (1848-1907) had eight children between 1871 and 1883 where all but two were born at Calcutta: Edward William Leonard (born in 1871), George Charles (1873), Harold Percy (1875, Fulham), Eveline Emma Campbell (1876), Kathleen Marion (1878), Frank Ernest (1879, Brixton Surrey), Henry Archibald (1882) and Harriet May Hickmott Goddard (1883)...
Wondering if Harry is possibly Harold GODDARD his brother?

George Charles Goddard married Olive Christina Hurley in 1901 Cardiff, Glamorganshire, Wales

A few suggestions from someone who lived there for a while 8)

Museum - run by excellent volunteers - https://broomemuseum.org.au/
Library - the best - http://www.broome.wa.gov.au/Facilities-Recreation/Broome-Public-Library
Local paper - might run your story - https://www.broomead.com.au/

There's also a local TV station (apart from ABC) that shows a lot of documentaries about old Broome.  Can't think of their name right now ::)

Hope some of this helps :D

Thanks Sue, yes we are aware of that.   Emma was  b. 1880, her daughter Esther was born 1902, she had two children 1921 and 1923, so this would be reasonable to assume that the E Corpus would be her, when looking at Court Records for financial assistance by this gentleman.

However we are still searching, I have contacted Broome Museum, and they have been very helpful.
They advise that George Charles Goddard was the Assistant Manager at Robison & Norman, the Pearling Company.  He lived at the "Star" Hotel in 1922 census.    They also inform me that he arrived in 1909 on board the "Orvieto", but I still haven't found that information.
