Our Goodchild ancestry has been traced to Christopher Goodchild who died at Kimmeridge, Dorset in 1732.  We were very fortunate to find a wonderful couple in England who had been researching our Goodchild family and had collected all sorts of information & photos.  In appreciation of their generosity this page is dedicated to Bill and Rachel.

This painting is believed to be of a Goodchild who was drowned in one of the floods that they got fairly regularly in the "West Country" of Dorset.  It was painted by K. Shuter dated 1787or 9. 
It may be John Goodchild (1771-1821) grandson of Christopher mentioned above.
The painting was in the possession of Louisa Adelaide Brine (nee Goodchild), and has been passed down to her grandson.  What a fabulous find!

Our main photo collection begins 4 generations from Christopher when William Marks Goodchild (1816-1883) married Elizabeth Hibbs (1818-1904) in Winfrith Newburgh on 2 Nov 1839.  William and Elizabeth had 10 children.  One son, Jacob Hibbs Goodchild (1847 - 1893), migrated to Australia starting the Australian branch while the youngest child, Alice Fanny Goodchild (1863-1933) migrated to Canada with her husband Richard Maddocks (1862-1936) and daughter after their son returned to England to get them to join him.  The remainder of the children stayed in England where they married and raised their families.

Descendants of William Marks Goodchild's older brother, Thomas, have shared some of their photographs.
