View Full Version : Looking for info. on Thomas & Mary Goodall
13-05-2006, 2:37 PM
I'm looking for info on my ggg grandparents, Thomas & Mary Goodall. Thomas, listed in the 1891 census, born approx. 1814 in Cheswardine, Salop (age 77 in 1891 census.) Mary, born approx. 1809, (age 82 in 1891 census) in Hadnall (?) Salop.
The census says they were then living in Stoke-upon-Tern. Any marriage records or anything else that may have their parents' names would be wonderful!
If anyone else is researching this name, check my other posts, as I am researching Percy Goodall Oldham (my g grandfather) his brother, Cecil N. Oldham and their mother, Fanny (nee Goodall) Oldham. Fanny is listed as widowed and living with her parents at the time of the census. I'd like to find out Mary's maiden name and Percy's father's name (Fanny's deceased husband.)
I apologize for the amount of info. I've given, it's really all I know, and as I am new at all this, figured it might help.
Thanks in advance for all your help!

Births Sep 1848
Goodall Emily W Drayton 18 115
Emily's birth certificate will have her exact place of birth, father's name (if given at time of registration) and occupation, and mother's maiden surname.
"W Drayton 18 115" is the reference to order from the General Register Office
This looks like Thomas and Mary's marriage ...
Marriages Dec 1838

In the International Genealogical Index on family search (http://www.familysearch.org) there are these possibilities ....
Christening: 26 JAN 1814 Clee Saint Margaret, Shropshire, England
Mother: SUSANAH GOODALL
Clee St Margaret is about 40 miles from Cheswardine, so I wouldn't trust this one; Emily's birth certificate will give his place of birth.
Christening: 05 MAR 1809 Hadnall, Shropshire, England
Father: ABRAHAM TAGG
Christening: 28 FEB 1808 Hadnall, Shropshire, England
Father: ABRAHAM TAGG
Spouse: MARY SILLITOE
Marriage: 07 APR 1807 Myddle, Shropshire, England
