George GOBLE (1850-?)

and Charlotte OVERY (c1852-1922)


George Goble and Charlotte Overy married on 11 October 1873 in Portslade, Sussex.  He was a 22 year old bachelor and brickmaker of Portslade.  She was a 23 year old spinster of Portslade.  The witnesses to the marriage were James Goble and Ann Goble.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  George was the brother of my 2x Great Grandfather, Edmund Goble.)

George Goble was born on 14 August 1850 in Emmsworth, Hampshire.  (I have a copy of his birth certificate.)  He was the third son and fourth child of George Goble (1807-1886) and Sarah Baxter (1815-1880).  At the time of the 1851 census he was 7 months old and living with his parents at 31 Hoeford, Fareham.  When the 1861 census was recorded he was a 9 year old scholar living in Alverstoke, Hampshire with his parents.

Charlotte Overy may have been born in the second quarter of 1852 in Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex.  She was the daughter of George Overy.  Charlotte died aged 70 years on 22 August 1922 and was buried in the Victoria Road Cemetery in Portslade.

When the 1881 census was recorded the family were living in Lancing, Sussex and George was a moulder in a brickfield.


George Goble and Charlotte Overy had 8 known children:

  1. Emily Louisa Goble was born in 1875 in Portslade.

    Emily married Frederick James Trigwell in the second quarter of 1896.

    Frederick was born about 1876 in Hove, Sussex.  The 1901 census records that Frederick Tugwell was a bricklayer and at 76 Trafalgar Road, Portslade, along with his wife Emily, their 2 children, mother-in-law Charlotte Goble, who was recorded as married but husband George was not at the same address, and 3 of Charlotte's daughters.

    Fred and Emily had at least 2 children:

    1. Emily Winifred Trigwell was born in the third quarter of 1898 in Portslade.

    2. Frederick Trigwell was born about 1900 in Portslade.

  2. Sarah Ann Goble was born in the third quarter of 1876 in Lancing, Sussex.  She may have married James Pierce in the second quarter of 1900 in the Steyning registration district.

  3. George Goble was baptised on 4 August 1878 in Portslade.  He married Ada Hobden in 1899.  (They have their own page.)

  1. Elijah Edward Goble was baptised on 3 October 1880 in Portslade.  He died aged 20 years and his death was registered in the first quarter of 1901 in the Steyning registration district.

  2. Eliza Mary Ann Goble was born in 1882 in Lancing.  She died in1962 and was buried in the Victoria Road Cemetery in Portslade.

    Eliza married twice, firstly to Henry Stanley on 10 August 1901 in the parish church of Southwick, Sussex.  The witnesses were James Pierce and Sarah A. Pierce.

    Henry and Eliza had 1 son:

    1. Noah Henry George Stanley was born in the third quarter of 1905.  He went on to become the landlord of The Stanley Arms in Wolseley Road, Portslade, a pub which had previously been tenanted by his Great Uncle Edmund Goble (c1841-1911).

  3. Elizabeth Alice Goble was born in the fourth quarter of 1884 in Lancing.  She married Mr. Earl.  It is not thought there were any children from this marriage.

  4. Edith Goble was born about 1889 in Lancing.  Her birth was registered in the first quarter of 1890 in the Steyning registration district.

  5. Violet Goble was born on 28 October 1893 and baptised on 1 April 1894 at St. Andrews, Portslade.  She married Mr. Goatcher.
