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." 
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.
