Hello Sharon I am sorry I can not help you with Joseph, however I was wondering whether you had any info. for me.? My Grandfather Fred Gooch married a Kate Eliza Parrett in Manchester in 1909. Her father was Reuben Parrett born in Patcham, Brighton in 1845. His fatherJames who I believe hadconnections in Kingsdown/Deal was born in Battle, Hastings in 1825, and married a Mary Jempson (Of Kent ) in 1844.Apart from Reuben they had another son called Alfred and a daughter named Elizabeth. Sorry but that's all I have, as ,naturallybeing new to this I am mainly concentrating on my own Surname. Any help appreciated, and Good Luck with Joseph if you can't.
