Elijah Edward GOBLE (1859-?)

and Amy Esther NEWNHAM (1865-?)


Elijah Edward Goble and Amy Esther Newnham married in the fourth quarter of 1886 in the Steyning registration district.  (They were not my direct ancestor.  Elijah was the brother of my 2x Great Grandfather, Edmund Goble.)

Elijah Edward Goble was baptised on 24 July 1859 in Rowner, Hampshire.  He was the son of George Goble (1807-1886) and Sarah Baxter (1815-1880).  He was 2 years old when the 1861 census was recorded.  Elijah was a labourer, brickmaker, publican, shopkeeper and general dealer.  In 1881 he was living with his father and brother John's family at The Windmill Inn, Hove.

Amy Esther Newnham was baptised on 9 July 1865 in Hove, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Benjamin Newnham (1838-?) and Ellen Pumfrey (1842-?).

In 1901 the family were living at 3 East Street, Portslade along with a lodger, 13 year old Charles Hoskins, a clerk, who had been born in Selham, Sussex.


Elijah Edward Goble and Amy Esther Newnham had 1 known child:

  1. Gilbert Elijah Goble was baptised on 6 November 1887 at St. Andrews, Portslade.
