Research Notes

GRO Birth Index gives mother's maiden name as Nicholls - NOT Amass as shown right. (Amass as LNAB appears to be a mistake on that profile - Elizabeth (Amass) Gooding (abt.1801-abt.1867))

Baptised 19 Apr 1840, Debenham St Mary, dau of Samuel & Mary Gooding - Findmypast record so not referenced here (England Orphan project rules).

FreeReg includes a note on Caroline's baptism entry (which gives parents as Samuel and Mary Gooding): "Entered from a certificate by the Curate of Wetheringsett following the death of George Smalley. SRO Fiche 16" [11]
