James Gordon

This family was difficult to trace. It began with Elizabeth Bunn who wed Laughlan Skene Duff Gordon, also called Lauchlan. But those are not the spellings for his birth record. I also discovered I had him wed to the wrong Elizabeth, not the girl born 1865 as I first thought.

George Gothorp

From on Sat, 24 May 2008
Hi Elizabeth,
Trying to sort out these Gothorps. They are likely to be closely related because other lines with the same name spell it Gothorpe or (earlier) Gowthorpe. It is a name that comes, like the family, from East Yorkshire, though Francis Gothorp's grandparents, William and Mary, had moved to Cold Hanworth in Lincolnshire. Yes, the MS I used for Lizzimon meant 'maiden surname'. It happens to be usual Scots practice to include it in that form and, my wife having Scots roots, I tend to use it.
You record George, Elizabeth and Lizamin Gothorp coming out together in 1863. George b. at Linwood 1829/30, son of Francis and Martha (MS Brewer) first married Sarah ??? c.1852 (after the 1851 census). Lizamin was born at Normanby by Spital, Lincolnshire, and baptised there 7 Aug 1853. Sarah died there 24 Oct 1855 and was buried 27 Oct. George then married Elizabeth ??? before the 1861 census. She was born c.1837 at Middleton on Leven (North Yorkshire).
I may be able to hunt down her MS through the 1851. If so I shall let you know. Thank you for the marriage information for Lizamin. Thomas looks like George's younger brother who was farming with George at Owmby by Spital (Lincolnshire) in 1851. Am I right in thinking that he married Ellen Kelly out in Australia? If so then the Ellen who was with him on the 'Spray of the Ocean' looks like his younger sister born c.1836 at Saxby, Lincs, even though she has been credited with one or two years on arrival! Like George she was a child of Francis and Martha (and so granddaughter of George and Lizzimon). Martha (MS Brewer) died 1836 in Saxby and Francis married Ann Martin in 1838.

Marriages Jun 1851 - George Gothorp to Sarah Kirkby at Lincoln
Marriages Mar 1858 - George Gothorp to Elizabeth Goldsbrough at Stokesley Vol 9d page 593
Gothorp Geo Gothorp 32, Elizth Gothorp 27 and Lizarnin Gothorp aged 9 came Jun 1863 on the Eastern Empire
Lizamin Gothorp (birthplace not indexed) wed 1886 #2066 to Charles Ernest Hutchinson from Tasmania
son Ernest Parry Hutchinson 1887 #19016 born at Drouin

Thomas Gothorp

From on Fri, 23 May 2008
Slight correction to your web site re Gothorp: Francis was son of George and Lizzamin (or Lizzimon) MS Musgrave. If it is of interest to you I can give more information on both Gothorp and Musgrave families back to the 1600s.
