    Married Abt 1886 
    • Given that Henrietta's son William was registered as a BELL when he was born I guess that she was in a relationship with a Mr Bell at the time, but there appears to have been no marriage, and by the time William was 3, when the 1891 census took place, Henrietta and William were back living with her parents.
      When he married William gave his father's name as John Henry GOATHAM. Those who were illegitimate often seem to have made up names to hide their illigetimacy, but were John Henry the Christian names of his real father?
      No, buying a copy of William's birth registration shows is father was William Richard BELL, and this cannot have been a husband invented by Henrietta for decency's sake as it was William Richard who registered his son's birth.
