Research Notes


Caroline's mother appears to have been an Elizabeth Nichols.

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 - please see Elizabeth (Amass) Gooding (abt.1801-abt.1867) for more details)

Baptised 19 Apr 1840, Debenham St Mary, dau of Samuel & Mary Gooding [11] but FreeREG includes the following note: "Entered from a certificate by the Curate of Wetheringsett following the death of George Smalley. SRO Fiche 16" [12] (perhaps Mary was a transcription error by the curate of Wetheringsett? There are no records of marriage to a Mary Nicholls.)
