Hullo, not surprised that you are not working today! 2010 is to be my big year for ‘finalising’ my family history! so watch out. I am sending an order for 4 items, can’t find postage, so will send extra, and hope.Itching to get my hands on the books I have ordered! Are there any “Gould’s connected to Gould Genealogy? I have two connections to the name – main one a convict, Thomas Gould from Co.Fermanagh, Ireland. Thanks, Lauris
We were officially closed for the Christmas-New year week, but some of us have been at the office for much of the last 3 days, catching up. Postage on any single order is usually a flat $7.95 regardless of the size of the order – effectively free freight for all but the first item. This is given on the online shopping cart, which you can always check this, even if you send payment by mail. In fact freight is free until 15 January – as has been advised in our recent email newsletters.
Gould – we should put the background to the name on on our web site. It derives from a Joseph Gould who came to South Australia in 1839. He had 3 daughters (one is my wife’s great grandmother), but no sons that I know of to carry on the Gould name. Except that the Gould name has been carried on as a middle name in some descendants to the present day – partly the reason we adopted the name. I do not however know much about Joseph Gould, but his death notice says he was “late of Somersetshire, England”. He died 25 February 1870 in South Australia aged 65.
My GG-grandmother was Amelia Gould (Tipperary Ireland – DOB 1839). She met GG-grandfather James Clarke (Sommerset Shire England – DOB 1837)on the ship to Australia approx mid 1850s. Amelia signed a cross on child’s birth certificate and gave marriage date as 1853, but James signed his name on another and gave date as 1858. They settled in Quarry Hill, Sandhurst Bendigo had 4 children (first, John died at birth) then a second son John, 1859, James 1860 and Amelia 1863. My G-grandfather John left home at 13 years old.
