Simon's Family History

 
EIGHTH GENERATION


248. Jacob GODDARD was born about 1715. He was buried on 10 Apr 1791 in Little Livermere, Sfk.

His occupations have been recorded as :-
Husbandman (Burial 1791)

Recorded addresses :-
Little Livermere, Suffolk (Children's baptisms 1743 - 1750, Burial 1791)

A possible marriage for Jacob & Ester is :-
Jacob GORWOOD & Ester CLARKE in April 1743 at Ingham, Suffolk.

I suspect that this is the marriage of Jacob Goddard & Ester Clarke for the following reasons :-

  • Gorwood is not a name that otherwise appears in the Suffolk records and therefore it is likely that the spelling of Goddard was corrupted by the Parish Clerk or Vicar. See my paper on Goddard name variations.
  •  The combination of first names of Jacob & Ester is not common;
  • The marriage took place 8 months prior to the baptism of Jacob & Ester's first child in Little Livermere;
  • Ingham is nearby Livermere, being on the other side of Ampton Water;
  • and no other recognizable marriage event can be found for the couple in Boyd's marriage index for Suffolk, which for the year is almost 100% complete for that County.

Jacob's origins or ancestry has not been established as yet.
