Family of Elizabeth Good(e)y
« on: Monday 04 November 19 20:04 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find information on the birth and parents of Elizabeth Good(e)y who married Joseph Smee on 25 Jun 1721 at Groton, Suffolk and was buried on 1 October 1733 at St Peter's, Sudbury.

I would also like confirmation that Joseph was born to Joseph Smee and Judith Fenn in 1678 and died on 26 Aug 1747 in Sudbury.

Elizabeth and Joseph had at least one daughter, Jane, that was baptised on 20 Oct 1731 at Sudbury and married William Finch on 18 Aug 1761 at Liston, Essex. I suspect there were other children though.

Any further information would be much appreciated.

I can't see baptisms for either Joseph or Elizabeth although I have found the marriage. I can also find two other children baptised to them, as well as Jane

Josias bapt. Sudbury St Peter 24 September 1729

Elizabeth bapt. Sudbury St Peter 30 October 1734

Thank you for that information Emeltom.

Does the marriage state their marital status? If Elizabeth was a widow, she could have a different maiden name....

Unfotunately I can only see transcription from familysearch and Boyds Marriage Index which only give the basic details, the Parish Register may have more but I doubt it. Most entires around that time just give the name of the coiple and the date.
