Hello,

Marriage 1076/1901 GODDEN ERNEST W - PALMER EMILY V L -GERMANTON

Emily died in 1912.

A possible 2nd # 14882/1915 GODDEN ERNEST W - MAHONY ETHEL M - MOSMAN ?

except the newspaper notices say spouse is Edith:

Death 13691/1929 GODDEN ERNEST W - WILLIAM MARY - ROCKDALE

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 29 July 1929 p.10
DEATHS
GODDEN.-July 27, 1929, at a private hospital Rockdale, Ernest W. Godden, beloved husband of Edith Godden, and loving father of Claude, Bill, Vera, Olga, Elsie, and Ruth, aged 58 years.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 29 July 1929 p.9
FUNERALS
GODDEN.-The Relatives and Friends of the late ERNEST W. GODDEN, beloved husband of Edith Godden, are invited to attend his Funeral, to leave 110 Villiers-street Rockdale, THIS DAY, at 2 p. m. for Church of England Cemetery Woronora by road, per motor service.
T. J. ANDREWS, Funeral Director, 21-25 Enmore-road, Newtown.

====
Death 27344/1946 GODDEN EDITH MAY - MICHAEL JOSEPH 66 YRS COOGEE - RANDWICK

Newspaper notices and Electoral Roll have spouse as a William Edward GODDEN and 2 sons born after 1901.

====

Mosman does not fit for someone who lived in Rockdale area but that would mean we have 2x Ernest W. If we can rule out the Mosman marriage where is his 2nd marriage to an Edith? And when does Edith die?

Deaths
7776/1926 GODDEN EDITH M - GEORGE E - RUBY M - ANNANDALE
34422/1962 GODDEN ETHEL MAY - JOHN JOSEPH - EMILY - KATOOMBA

Neither in Ryerson

Regards,

Dave

The marriage says Ethel M as does this birth reg:

18496/1917 GODDEN RUTH M - ERNEST W - ETHEL M - MURRUMBURRAH

but the newspaper notices have the name as Edith. An error or a 3rd marriage for Ernest?

If the children are listed in order with eldest first then when and where were the others born?

Claude ?
William (Bill) 1903
Vera 1905
Olga ?
Elsie ?
Ruth 1917

No birth reg 1889-1918 in NSW for Claude, Olga or Elsie.

Birth reg in Linton, Victoria to Edwin Jas GODDEN & Susannah JOHNSON:

Hilda 1902
Wm 1905
Elsie 1908
Claude 1910
May 1913

1933 NSW Electoral Roll - South Sydney - Randwick East
GODDEN Ethel May, 44 St. Mark's road, home duties

Do we have two or did Ethel move back to Mosman after Ernest died in 1929?

1933 NSW Electoral Roll - Warringah - Mosman
GODDEN Ethel May, 64 Spit road, home duties

Death 34422/1962 GODDEN ETHEL MAY - JOHN JOSEPH - EMILY - KATOOMBA ???

Still possible to appear in E/R in 1963.


MAHONY is probably not Ethel's maiden name. Is this her first marriage:

5537/1902 MAHONY JOHN - HILL ETHEL M - SYDNEY

Rule this one out:
Birth 9832/1883 MAHONEY ETHEL M - DAVID C - MARY E - ST LEONARDS
Death 19853/1928 MAHONY ETHEL M - DAVID C - MARY E - PETERSHAM

The 1929 funeral notice says 110 Villiers-street Rockdale but they are not in 1928 Electoral Roll for Barton - Rockdale.

That is the address of a small cottage not a funeral home or whatever.
