    Default Information about Goulston family

    My first (late) husband was a Goulston and he compiled a family tree, going back to about 1790. He was a descendant of John (Jacob) Goulston (born 1809), Edward's brother. Their father was Menassah Isaac Goulston, born 1761, died 4 January 1837, but there are other variations of this surname - Goldson and Goldston. He married Elizabeth ? and the family lived at 20 Primrose Street in East London. The family tree I have shows that Edward (Eleazar) married Frances Barnett on 6 June 1837, but only shows one son, Manassah Isaac, born 16 March 1842, but not your great great grandfather. Taking the family tree back even further, Menassah's father was Isaac Goldstone/Goldson, but my late husband was never able to find out which part of Europe Isaac came from. Some records states that the family first settled in Portsmouth and came to London about 1800. I can confirm the family is Jewish and it set up a sealing wax business in 1819, called the Victory Works to celebrate the Battle of Waterloo. The business continued until about 1970.

    My great great grandfather Henry Morris goulston born 1843/4 mile end Middlesex.

    His father Edward Morris goulston born 1813/4 mile end Middlesex. He also lived in Bancroft cottage at some point.

    The surname is a confusion to me as my DNA results show Ashkenazi Jewish and Henry was rumoured to have taught horseman ship to prince Ferdinand of Austria during the ottoman empire. Any information greatly appreciated
