  • Notes 
    • I have neither baptism nor wedding dates for Joseph but working back from the baptism of his son William on the 4th of May 1735 I would guess he was born about 1700 It is recorded that he came from the neighbouring parish of Shilton with his son William who was born in Withybrook and that he lived in a cottage owned by the Earl of Denbigh and that he lived there some 26 years paying a rent of 5/s per annum with the Earl responsible for providing material for repairs It seems also that Joseph had a legal right or "Settlement" under the Act of that name in the Parish of Monks Kirby whereby if times were hard he could apply to the parish for poor relief. It is entirely probable that he worked for the Earl as the estate was being re-landscaped during the years 1745 to 1753
      Joseph died on the 27th of April 1777

      Researcher Christian Hancock has now produced new information on Joseph Goddard in the form of a Settlement certificate for 1722/3 for himself and wife Matthew ( probably Martha) This is addressed to the Overseers in Churchover and says they are now settled in Monks Kirby

      It seems that on occasion Joseph and his wife Martha applied for poor relief as detailed below
      Extracts from the "Monks Kirby Overseers of the Poor Accounts"
      Year1737/8 Joseph Gothard receives 8 payments varying from 1/s to 3/s
      Year1743/4 Joseph Godhard in his illness receives 16 payments varying from 6d to 2/6 which includes bleeding him and his wife
      The payments stop until 1764 and recommence sometimes for tasks of drawing straw at 6d per hour until 1768 when Jos Godhard is on list of persons receiving collection first 1/s per week rising to 3/s
      He then receives 3/s per week till Jan 1773 then 4/s per. until Easter 1777 (year of his death )
      Parish support for his widow continues at 2/6 per week
      In Sept 1786 under another account entitled "Expenses in Widow STEARNS account " they paid 6d for moving Widow Goddard to Shilston, 1/3 for coals, for straw 16/- and a further 6/8 for another load of coals Payments vary around this period and include clothing and bedding for Martha running to further sums for work done by son William in pulling down two houses,Peg Gilberts and Herberts
