Valerie Lawson’s biography of his famous daughter, Pamela Lyndon Tavers aka Helen Lyndon Goff, lays waste to the claim that her father, Travers Robert Goff, was "Of Irish descent." [1]

According to Lawson, "Goff was born at home in Queens Road, Deptford, London, in December 1863, the second son of a shipping agent, Henry Lyndon Bradish Goff, and his wife Charlotte Cecilia. He did have Irish connections, though, with relatives whose surname was Davis-Goff, who lived in both County Wexford and near Galway, in the west of Ireland."

On his death certificate, however, his mother is named as Christina Hawkshaw.
