THE GOODLIFFE FAMILY OF BATTERSEA

beginning with Joseph Goodliffe (1812-?)

Introduction

As you will see from other pages on my my website, I have collected a lot of information about the Goodliffe family. With time, I have researched parts of other Goodliffe families, so it seems useful to make this information available as well. So here is some information about Joseph GOODLIFFE from Yorkshire.

JOSEPH GOODLIFFE (c.1812 – 18??)

Based on the census records, Joseph was born in Yorkshire in about 1812. In 1841 Joseph had moved to London, where he was residing at West Mews, Belgrave Sq.  His occupation is listed as M.S., which I think was Man Servant.

Marriage to Emma KITCHINGMAN
Joseph married Emma in 1844, registered at Westminster (Jun Qtr 1844 1a/425). They had 4 children, before Emma died in late 1850 (Sevenoaks Dec 1850 5/298). As this is the same quarter that son James was born in, she probably died in childbirth or soon after.

Maria Sarah Jun 1845 Sevenoaks
Emily Mary Dec 1846 St George Hanover Sq
Louisa Ann Mar 1849 Sevenoaks
James Joseph Dec 1850 Sevenoaks

So in the 1851 census Joseph is a widower, living at Seal in Kent, where he was the Coachman for Sir George Charles PRATT, 2nd Marquess of Camden (see peerage). 

The four children were living with a local family in Sevenoaks, William & Sarah ROOTS in Park Lane.

In 1861, Joseph and his four children are living in Charles St, Kensington where Joseph is a Licenced Vitualler.  He is still a widower.

Marriage to Sarah Elizabeth COLE
Joseph married Sarah in late 1869 (Dec 1869 Islington 1b/419). At the date of marriage, Joseph was aged 57 and Sarah was 30. Sarah was born in mid 1839 (Jun 1839 North Aylesford 5/353).

In 1871 Jospeh was working as the Publican at the Windsor Castle Pub  in Windsor Terrace, Marylebone. His second daughter Emily is still living with him.

I have not found Joseph and family in the 1881 census. The only death record for a Joseph is in Dec 1887 at Croydon (2a/157) aged 77. This would give a birth of 1810 that is about right for Joseph.

 


The Children of Joseph and Emma

Maria Sarah GOODLIFFE

Maria was born in Sevenoaks, Kent in 1845. In 1864 she married William BARKER (Jun 1864 Shoreditch 1c/412) who was born in 1843 in Iford, Essex. In the 1871 census they are living at Mile End New Town, Tower Hamlet, with daughter Minnie, born in 1865. By 1871 Maria and William had had five children, although Minnie is not with them in 1881:


1871 Census - Mile End New Town



1881 Census - Plaistow


James Joseph GOODLIFFE

James was born in Sevenoaks Kent in late 1850. His story is told here.
