Hi there

In order to be certain you are following the correct William Goody it would be necessary to have some identifiers other than name and year of birth. Does his marriage in England by any chance name his father or his father's occupation? The Scottish statutory vital records are available to search and view online for a small fee at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk A search for any Goody at all born in a 10 year time span from 1875-1885 only turns up 3 in the whole country and only one of them is a William and it just so happens this William was born in 1879. It has all the markings of being a match for your William but without tracking this family forward or already knowing parent names from your end you can't be sure. If you purchase a view of the birth record it will contain the information of the parents names, occupation, and date and place of marriage. I hope its yours!

Best wishes
