Searching for Birth mother - Goode/Grundy in Nottingham
« on: Thursday 07 November 19 11:28 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I am researching on behalf of my FIL for his birth mother.
I have the following information from his and her birth certificates.

FIL mother: Born Mary 12/7/1922 @ Grosvenor Nursing Home, 42 Forest Road, Nottingham
Her father: Henry Albert Goode (retired Victualler)
Her Mother: Leah Goode (formerly Parkin)
residing at 24 Beech Ave, Sherwood Rise, Nottingham

This Birth cert was reissued on 25/09/1928 by authority of the register - we don't know why.

On my FIL birth cert his mother is named at Mary Grundy & her mother Parkin. No father listed.
He was born in 1949, Worksop

He was born Michael Grundy and adopted name: *
There is an interesting connection though as his adopted mother was a Grundy and his adopted father is Batty although he definitely was adopted.

I have traced his connection to Goode through DNA (my heritage) to a Doris Ivy Goode (married Elliott) (1930-2016)

Any information would be very much appreciated
Nicole

Welcome to Rootschat Nicole

Can you clarify what it is that you wish to do?

Mary appears to be an only child of Henry and Leah.

Doris certainly doesn't appear to be a sister of Mary.  Perhaps her father was one of Henry's  brothers?

Just a guess but Mary's 1928 birth registration may have been something to do with the education system.

I cannot see any marriage of a Mary Goode to a Grundy unless it was abroad.

Is your FIL still alive? If so you need to remove his name.  Born in 1948 not 1949.

Could . Mary Goode s birth certificate have bee. Re issued because she was also adopted or because  her mother got married to Mr -Goode .

Have you found a baptism for Mary ..?

Ah I see the parents married in 1928 hence most likely the reason for a re-issue of Mary's birth certificate.

Marriages Sep 1928 
Goode    Henry A    Parkin    Nottingham    7b   887    
Parkin    Leah    Goode    Nottingham    7b   887

I suspect Henry may well be a good deal older than Leah.  Found a likely Henry in the 1911 census at Forest Tavern 257 Mansfield Road Nottingham, occupation publican and married.  Born 1868.  No wife listed.

You beat me to it with the marriage.

There is a death (as per FreeBMD)
Mar qtr 1934 Nottingham vol 7b p529 GOODE Henry A age 73 which is a fair match for the man you found.

Yes he was:-

Marriages Mar 1889 
Brambley    Ada Mary        Nottingham    7b   348    
Goode    Henry Albert        Nottingham    7b   348

Hairdresser in 1891 and 1901 - No children with them.

This may be Ada's death, after Mary was born.

Deaths Dec 1924   
Goode    Ada M    53    Woolwich    1d   1083

No. From start of thread-
"a Doris Ivy Goode (married Elliott) (1930-2016)"
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
