Notes
General:
If the baptism is correct, John's parents were James and Ann Godber (Bower).

There are a number of Elizabeth Witham's and I have also found John Godber marrying Elizabeth Page in 1807, so I am not sure which is the mother of his children. Elizabeth Witham seems to have had a child before she married John Godber, the child being noted as illegitimate. It is possible John Godber married 2 Elizabeth's but it is difficult to work out what the correct information is as it is pre-compulsory registration

probable children:-

Rebecca Witham 1819-1821 daughter of Elizabeth Witham born prior to marriage
James Godber 1821-1838
Ann Godber 1823-1887 (m. Bennett)
John Godber 1826-1901 ?????
William Godber 1828-1894
Frank Francis Godber 1828-1901
Rebecca Godber 1832- ?????
Eliza Godber 1838-1891 (Butterworth)

Notes
General:
from "Godbers Wilson: 150 years of Settlement and Growth", Leila Simpson, 1988

Lavinia married in 1914. Saffrey Simpson's family had been in W.A. (Swan River Colony) since the Foundation year of 1829. He started as an office boy at the Perth City Council in 1900 and worked there for 25 years, resigning in 1926 to go farming in Popanjinning. Before the farm got properly going the depression came (wool 15d a pound, wheat 3/- a bushell, eggs 6d a dozen), and things were tough, but for all that we had plenty of happy times. Lavinia had a lovely singing voice so was in great demand to sing solos, and we had great sing songs around the piano. We got our first motor vehicle in 1936 (before that we had a horse and cart), a wireless in 1938 and we had to wait until well after the War for our first fridge.

When the War came Saffrey joined the Army Pay Corps and we left the farm and lived in South Perth. After the War Saffrey worked in W.A. Forests Dept, and on retirement in 1953 came out to live at Gosnells.

possibly died in 1867 aged 38 or 1900 aged 71. There is no way of knowing which death is the correct one without obtaining death certificates from England and even then it might not resolve the issue

Notes
General:
Sophia Gomez was born in Spain, the only daughter of Signor James Gomez, sculptor, who was brother of the Late General Gomez of Spain. Sophia's father was said to have been assassinated at the time of the Spanish Revolution and Sophia's uncle Nemecio Gomez took her away to Gibraltar for safety. At the age of 17, Sophia Married an Army bandsman named James Kellum (Kellam) on 13th June 1836. James died in 1840, by which time, Sophia had 2 children. She may have married another army Officer called William Duck and possibly had several more children. William Duck died in St Kitts in 1842 and it seems that Sophia and the Regiment then returned to England, where in 1844, Sophia Duck married William Glanville, also and officer in the same Army Regiment. Sophia and William Glanville had 3 children, the first born in Ireland in 1847, the second born in England in 1849 and the 3rd born on board the prison Ship, the Pyrenees in 1851.

I have obtained a copy of the marriage certificate of Sophia to William Glanville. Sophia's surname is listed as Duck and she is said to be a widow with no indication of previous marriages. William is said to be a Corporal in the 47th Regiment and witnesses to the wedding were Charles William Porter and William Willoughy.

At this stage I have not found if Sophia had children with William Duck, however, if she did, there does not appear to be any current evidence that they came to Australia with Sophia and William Glanville.

Between 2 May 1831 and 10 February 1839 all three men (husband's of Sophia) were in the same regiment, the 47th Regiment and presumably knew each other and thus all presumably first met Sophia at pretty much the same time.

In 1852 or 1853 Sophia gave birth to another son, but apparently she died in childbirth, as did the child, however, I have been unable to find deaths to corroborate this. Newspaper stories indicate that this story is correct.
