GOODALL OF KIRKSTALL

 

The Samuel Goodall who married Mary Staincliff in 1806 at Guiseley may have been the one of that name baptised at South Kirkby on 8 January 1786, son of Joshua Goodall of South Kirkby, maltster.[1] The name Joshua was used for a son of Samuel and Mary.

 

The Kirkstall parish registers record the burial of a Joshua Goodall of Kirkstall on 12 April 1836 aged 57. This would fit with the baptism of Joshua, son of Joshua Goodall, at South Kirkby on 16 April 1780.

 

Joshua Goodall and Sarah Brook were married at Adwick le Street on 25 October 1774.

 

In a settlement examination of Joshua Goodall of South Kirkby, labourer, dated 7 January 1786, Joshua stated that he believed he was born at Bowling near Tong and when about eighteen hired himself for two years to Nicholas Nettleton of Rye Croft in Tong, malster. He served Nicholas Nettleton one year at Rye Croft and about half a year afterwards went to reside at Hampole, serving by the week there for ten years and then got married.[2] The Tong records also include the apprenticeship indentures of James Goodall and Joshua Goodall, both dated 4 October 1788.[3]

 

Another Samuel Goodall, whose father was also named Joshua, and whose mother was Ann (Clark) Goodall, was baptised at Cowthorpe on 11 April 1785. This Samuel was presumably the Samuel Goodall, innkeeper, of Market Weighton, who died on 27 April 1852 aged sixty-seven and to whom there is a monumental inscription at Cowthorpe adjacent to that of Joshua and Ann Goodall.

GOODALL

 

SAMUEL GOODALL of Horsforth and Kirkstall, Yorkshire, husbandman, died before 1851.[4] He married on 12 May 1806 at Guiseley, MARY STAINCLIFF,[5] daughter Michael and Hannah (Swane) Staincliff of Horsforth (see here). Mary was born at Horsforth, baptised there on 9 March 1788[6] and died on 8 November 1857 at Kirkstall.[7]

[8] The Bramley Baptist chapel registers also show the deaths of Charlotte, daughter of Samuel Goodall of Bramley, on 4 Dec 1823 aged one year and eleven months, and of Samuel, son of Samuel Goodhall of Bramley, on 19 May 1824 aged one month. However, I have not found births or baptisms for such children and they appear to have been confused with Charlotte Goodhall, born 15 Apr 1822, and Samuel Goodhall, born 20 Apr 1824, both children of George and Meriah Goodall (National Archives, RG 4/1714). Also living with Mary Goodall in 1841 were a Maria Goodall (age unclear, probably 18), and an Elizabeth Goodall, aged 12 (HO 107/1344/1, fols. 13-14).
