    • GRO ref: GOATHAM, Maria to Goodyew [sic], James q4 1837 Maidstone RD 5 388Mid-Kent Marriage Index accessed 11 Feb 2011
      Groom's surname shown as Goodyear

      FreeReg, The Genealogist and KFHS transcribed data all show James' surname as Goodyear!
      Also show groom was a shoemaker, resident: otp (Bower Rd), his father William a fruiterer, Maria's father John a shoe maker, Maria a minor, abode otp (Stone St.). Also show's grooms surname as GOODYEAR
      Witnesses were James Ruck and Stephen Smith.
      Married by banns.

      Despite the large gap between Caroline and Maria, the GRO online index has no other children, born during that gap or between the marriage and 1844. Of course quite a few children went unregistered in the early days of BMD registration, possibly James and Maria had one or more before 1844 who were born and died between either the 1841 or 1851 censuses.

    • From index card to Vermont marriages (image on New England HGS website, viewed 13 Apr 2016)
      Shows bride as Elizabeth J Goodhue, resident Maine, aged 21, 1st marriage, born England, father James Goodhue and mother Maria Gotham.
      Groom as W H Berry, resident Maine, aged 24, a Farmer, born England, father Thomas Berry, mother Elizabeth P.
      Married by  J C Houghton, Minister.

      With Boughton under Blean, William's birthplace, not very far from Bredgar, where was from (c. 13 miles), it seems that William and Elizabeth must have known each other before emigrating.
