Elizabeth GOODLIFFE (1792-1832) - Eldest daughter of Thomas and Mary Goodliffe
Elizabeth Goodliffe was born 28th August 1792 in the family home of Lambley Lodge near Belton in the County of Rutland. She was the first child of Thomas and Mary.
Elizabeth married Samuel Richmond in about 1812, but the parish record has not been located. They had 7 children all baptised at the Baptist Chapel of Morcott and Barrowden:
Her brother Arnold described her life in his Memoirs thus:
The children of Elizabeth and Samuel RICHMOND
Samuel married Mary Ann TOWNLEY in Thrapston in 1839 (Jun qtr Thrapston 15/575). They had three children:
In the 1841 census they were living at 42 York Place, Westminster, London with young daughter Elizabeth:
And were still at 42 York St in 1851:
In 1861 they had moved to Oxford St (St George Hanover Sq) where he was a mangle maker, although there is some confusion over names and ages :
It appears that Mary Ann died in London in late 1861 (Dec qtr St Geo Han Sq 1a/452) just after the 1861 census.
Samuel died on the Isle of Wight in early 1871, just before the census was taken.
Of three children, George Goodliffe married Catherine NEALE in Leicester in 1869. They had two children Florence Kate (dec 1869) and George Goodliffe Neale ( Dec 1870-Jun 1871). George (snr) died in 1876 (Sep qtr Dartford 2a/220). By 1871 Florence is at a boarding School in Ashby de la Zouch.
Florence married George Richmond Eyre ANDREWS in Sep 1899 (Bromley 2a/981). They had one son, George Richmond Alfred, born Dec 1901 in Lewsham. They are all living at 92 Birkhad Rd, Catford Lewisham in 1911:
Thomas married Mary KERFOOT in 1840. They had two children born in
Kings Cliffe, Northhamptonshire - Thomas Kerfoot RICHMOND and
Samuel Goodliff RICHMOND.
Robert was born 5 February 1821 in Barrowden, Rutland. In early 1844 he married Sophia TOWNLEY, the younger sister of Mary Ann TOWNLEY, who had married Robert's brother Samuel in 1839.
Robert and Sophia had three children, none of whom married:
In 1851 they were living in central London, 1 Ducking Pond Mews, Westminster where Robert was a Hackney Cab Proprietor:
By 1861 they had moved south of the Thames and just east of Tower Bridge to Weld Parade, Bermondsey. Robert was a Cab Driver:
In the 1871 census they had moved again to 169 Albany Rd Camberwell where Robert was a Greengrocer.
Sophia and the three children (still unmarried) are together in the 1881 census at 167 Albany Rd, but Robert was absent:
Robert died in Camberwell in March qtr 1887 (Camberwell 1d/580), and Sophia in Dec qtr 1888 (Camberwell 1d/571).
Following the death of their parents, Elizabeth, John and Mary are together at 241 Albany Rd, John is a Cab Proprietor:
John appears to have died in Dec qtr 1899 (Camberwell 1d/692). Elizabeth and Mary remained in Albany Rd. now at 322 in 1901and 1911. The 1911 census was filled out by Mary. Although she knew that she was "Kept by my sister" she was not sure of Elizabeth's age (64 or 66) or where she was born (Chapel St, Westminster or Bisbrooke, Rutland):
Elizabeth died in March qtr 1927 (Camberwell 1d/1080). I have not found Mary's death.
George, the youngest child, was born 19 February 1830 in Barrowden and christened in the Baptist Chapel of Morcott and Barrowden. Further information about George is hard to find. He married Margaret POWELL from Monmouthshire in St Giles, London in 1854 (June qtr 1b/524). They are in the 1861 census at 2a Pond Place, Chelsea:
The next records are the 1891 and 1901 censuses where George is a pauper in the Peckham Workhouse, Camberwell:
In 1901 he is shown as Widow, so Margaret had died some time prior.
