Christmas in England 2006
DAY 9: Saturday 30 Dec
Saturday, after breakfast at the Travel Inn, Nottingham Marina, we decided to try to locate some of the addresses where the Goodliffe family had resided. This was also an opportunity to look around some of the parts of Nottingham we had not seen before.
First we returned to Bridlesmith Gate, where Arnold had set up his shop.
Annesley Grove - Mary Ellen Goodliffe
Arnold's grand-daughter, Mary Ellen Goodliffe (daughter of Arnold's oldest son Thomas) was born in Victoria, Australia in 1856. The family returned to Nottingham in 1861 and Mary married Edward Hickling in 1882. In the 1891 and 1901 censuses, the couple are listed at 14 Annesley Grove, Nottingham.
Musters Road - John Frederick Goodliffe
Another grandchild of Arnold's, and another son of Thomas' was John Frederick Goodliffe, who was born in 1862, soon after the family's return to Nottingham. Thomas inherited Arnold's provision business, and when his health failed in 1887, John took over full control. John married Mary Millington in 1894, and they had six children. In the 1901 census John and family were living at 101 Musters Road, a large, imposing house.
Brewhouse Yard - Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
After a long day of sightseeing, we called into the old pub in Brewhouse Yard, for a drink and meal. Once again we found the food and atmosphere most agreeable. Go here for more information about the Froggatt connection to Brewhouse Yard.
