      The 1871 census shows that he was combining being a sawyer with being a publican. By 1891 the census showed him just as a publican - not surprising that at nearly 70 one occupation should be enough!

      For most if not all of his married life 21 Flushing Street, where the Jolly Sailors' was located, was the home of Henry and his family.

    Publican 
    • We know Henry was a publican at the "Jolly Sailors" from his being granted a licence at the 1866 petty sessions, and then from the censuses (1871 - 1891). Since his widow was at the Inn in 1901 it seems reasonable to suppose he continued there until his death.
      In 1871 and 1881 he combined publican with sawyer.
      Was possibly publican at the Jolly Sailors from 1862 as an 1862 Post Office directory (as well as an 1874 one) showed him as a beer retailer.

      Being a publican often meant people got mentioned in local papers, due to events, planned or unplanned, which took place at their establishment. Henry and his wife are no exception.

      The "Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald" for Saturday 6 May 1871 reported:
      "Felony - At St. Augustine's Petty Sessions, on Saturday, before G. Neame, Esq., a mariner named Thomas John Pattenden was charged with stealing an oil-cloth overcoat and a telescope, together of the value of 18s, the property of George Lissenden, at Whitstable, on the 11th April. - Prosecutor deposed that the articles were on board the barge called the "Black Prince", lying in Whitstable Harbour, on the 10th April, and he missed them the next morning. The defendant had not been employed on the vessel at all, and had no business on board. The overcoat and glass were his property. - Edward Rigden stated that he was near the Railway gates on the morning of the 11th April or thereabouts, at about three o'clock, and saw the prisoner coming from the direction of the Harbour with an oil-skin under his arm. Owing to the darkness he was unable to identify the coat produced. He did not hear that the prosecutor had missed anything until a week afterwards. - Harriet Goatham said her husband kept the "Jolly Sailor" at Milton-next-Sittingbourne, and on the 22nd April the prisoner came into the house and had something to drink. He offered the telescope for sale for 5s., and she consulted her husband, who would not purchase it. Prisoner represented that he had a family, and that he had no means of buying them food, and she ultimately gave him 4s. for it. She understood him to say that he came from Margate, and that he had had the glass some time. - I. C. Capps, stationed at Milton, said he wnt to the "Jolly Sailor," and there ascertained that the landloard had bought the glass now produced. He apprehended the asscused at Mr. Smeed's shipbuilding yard, at Murston, and afterwards went to his lodgings, where he found the oil-skin concealed amongst some brown paper. He said his wife packed it up before he left, and he denied stealing the glass. - In defence, prisoner stated that he obtained the two articles from a seafaring man named Daniel Warner at Whitstable, in exchange for others, and that Warner accompanied him to Sittingbourne, and, in fact, offered the telescope for sale to the publican at the "Jolly Sailor." - The witness Goatham was re-called, and said the prisoner offered the glass for sale. There was another man with him. - Prisoner was then committed for trial."

      Even without anything so eventful a publican might be mentioned in the paper. In the Kentish Chronicle, for Saturday 22nd September 1866, the licence granted to Henry was noted. .Under "Sittingbourne Petty Sessions" it was recorded:
      "This being the annual licensing meeting, the whole of the old licenses were renewed, and the following applications were heard:- [a list follows of 10 names and addresses of would-be licensees, 4 in Sheerness, 4 in Milton and 2 in Sittingbourne, including "Henry Goatham, Jolly Sailors, Milton"]
      The Bench granted a licence to Mr. Goatham, of the Jolly Sailors, Milton, but the other applications were refused."
      One of those refused was one William Winch, applying for a licence for the Foresters' Arms, also in Milton. He was quite likely a cousin of Henry's; not only was Henry's great grandmother one Ann Winch, but her brother appears to have been a publican.

      Although the marriage certificate shows both Henry and Harriet as resident in Chatham, Harriet had lived with her family in Flushing Street in Milton, where her mother and siblings were still living in 1861, although by then Harriet had moved to live where she was working, in Chatham. Less than 3 weeks before the wedding Henry was living with a sister and her family in Milton. Perhaps he described himself as living in Chatham to save the need to arrange for banns to be read in Milton.
      While Harriet's residence in the parish would have enabled them legally to marry in Chatham, many marriages seemed to take place there where neither of the couple was resident. The large size of the parish and the number of transitory residents due to the dockyard probably made it effectively impossible to check that at least one of a couple was resident (as required by the 1753 Hardwicke Act)
