|Researching John and Mary GOOGE/GOUGE or GOOCH who lived in Essex, England, in late 1700's, their children baptised in Bradfield (per order) are: Elizabeth "GOUGE" in married Henry "SAWYER" of Mistley, Daniel "GOUGE" in 1774 married Mary "GEORGE" in Gt-Bromley, Ruth "GOUGE" in Gt-Holland married John MORRICE/MORRIS.Aaron "GOUGE" baptized in 1784 married 1) Mary Cole in Wix (children were John and Mary) and 2) Mary Markham in Bradfield. Joseph Gouge who was baptized in 1787 married Frances Thompson/Thomson in Bradfield.|
John Googe of 1776 "of Gt Oakley" seems to be the son of John and Mary Gouge of Bradfield but is not baptised there. There is also a William "Goughe", son of John and Mary GOUGH baptised in Gt Holland in 1768 who could possibly be a brother as well as Peter GOUGH, son of John and Mary, baptised in Gt Holland in 1766.
A very recent discovery is the marriage of Elizabeth GOOGE to Joseph CUTTING in 1826 in Beaumont, Essex.Joseph is possibly the son of Samuel CUTTING and Mary EADY who married in Wix and moved to Gt-Oakley after the third child was born.Elizabeth GOOGE's parents are not known at this time.
Another fact about Solomon GOOGE of Brighlingsea found in the 1881 census for Rainhill, Lancashire, England; he had a daughter, Emily GOOGE, age 10, born in Hale, Lancashire. He had married Margared PEARCE.I also found the baptism of my gt-gt-gt-gd-father Elijah Googe but is was recorded as Goose, also in Brightlingsea in 1844.I will come back with details to update more records in a little while.
A new discovery this year(2011) is about little Robert GOOGE who was born on 22 Aug 22,1842 and baptized as GOUGE on 2 Oct, 1842 in the Wesleyan Chapel of Brightlingsea and died as young boy age 8 on 5 Sept, 1849 (buried), son of John GOOGE (a labourer) and Mary.
The THORPE, LAST, MORRICE/MORRIS FRENCH, PATRICK and others like ANGIER, COPSEY, GODFREY, and HOWARD families found in Bromley (KENT & ESSEX) and Brightlingsea as well as surrounding villages are also of interest to my research. I am launching a new website "1googe.com" which is at " http://www.1googe.com ".Please email me at email@example.com with Genealogy and the surname as the subject title if you feel we may have a common link.
I have several facts and pictures which I will post at 1googe.com as soon as time permits.
