  • Notes 
    • JAMES EDGOOSE 1780-1832

      James, son of John and Ann EDGOOSE, was baptised at Gosberton, Lincolnshire, on 26 April 1780. John EDGOOSE had married Ann DOLTON at Gosberton on 21 September 1768.

      In his will made on 19 March 1805 Robert TYLER of Gosberton, farmer and grazier, wrote:
      "Lastly I give and bequeath unto my well beloved Son in Law James HEADGOOSE of the Parish of Gosberton aforesaid, who now resides with me, and whom I nominate, make, appoint and ordain the Sole Executor of this my last Will & Testament, All my Estate, Effects, Goods & Chattels & Money possessed by me at the Time of my Decease my lawful Debts, Funeral Expences, & the above Legacies being First duly discharged as the same shall become due; etc. etc."

      Robert TYLER had married Ann EDGOOSE, the widowed mother of John and James EDGOOSE, at Gosberton on 10 October 1781. He was buried at Gosberton on 25 March 1805 aged 51.

      The Gosberton Land Tax records list James EDGOOSE as the proprietor of land in his own tenure from 1805-1809, rent 10s., tax 2s.
      In 1808 and 1809 he is also listed as the proprietor and occupier of Little Walton, rent 1.10s., tax 6s..
      From 1810-1814 and from 1816-1832 he is listed as a proprietor and occupier, rent 2, tax 8s..

      He married Ann YATES by licence at Gosberton on 9 April 1806. She was a 27 year old widow from Swineshead, Lincolnshire. Her husband was described as a 26 year old Gosberton farmer. John CARTER and Squire LADD were witnesses. Robert DOUBLEDAY signed the Marriage Bond with John EDGOOSE.
      (MB 1806/199 and 200)

      Their daughter Elizabeth was baptised at Gosberton on 2 March 1807, but Ann died shortly afterwards and was buried on 13 March 1807.

      James EDGOOSE of the parish of Gosberton, widower, married Mary WINFREE, a 22 year old spinster of this parish, by licence at Moulton, Lincolnshire, on 14 December 1807. Witnesses were John HOOTON and Mary CROW.
      (PR)
      (MB1807/33 & 34)

      His daughter Elizabeth was buried at Gosberton on 23 September 1808.

      Their daughter Caroline was born on 11 September 1809 and baptised at Gosberton on 20 November.

      Their son Arthur was baptised at Gosberton on 29 September 1811.

      Their son Jesse was born on 10 January 1813 and baptised at Gosberton on 31 January.

      The 1813 Court of Sewers Verdict for Kirton Wapentake shows that he occupied 21 acres and 3 roods of land in Gosberton and 9 acres and 1 rood of land in Surfleet. All 31 acres were owned by the Rev. Henry PORTINGTON. The land in Gosberton was possibly Field Nos. 167, 209, 210 and 211 on the O.S. 25" map 1904 edition, situated at the end of the Fifth Drove in Gosberton Fen at grid reference point TF 170287. (Letter from Clerk of the County Council, Boston, 2 January 1969)

      Their son Albert was baptised at Gosberton on 6 February 1814.

      The name of Mr. James EDGOOSE, farmer, is in a list of Freeholders resident in the parish of Gosberton in August 1814.

      Their daughter Amey Ann was baptised at Gosberton on 24 December 1815.

      He was fined one shilling on 9 January 1816 for an assault on Thomas KNIGHT:
      "To the Constables of Gosberton
      Whereas complaint hath been made upon oath before me one of His Majesty's Justices of the peace in and for the said parts by Thomas KNIGHT of Gosberton Yeoman that on Monday the fourth Day of December about the hour of three in the afternoon at Gosberton aforesaid he the said Thomas KNIGHT was violently assaulted and beaten by James EDGOOSE of Gosberton Farmer

      Henry COOK was a witness for the prosecution.
      (ibid No. 26)

      "In Recog'ce Against James EDGOOSE of Gosberton Farmer for an Assault on Thomas KNIGHT. A true Bill - Appeared - Submitted - fined 1s. and Recognizance discharged."
      (HQS Minutes Boston Epiphany Sessions 1816)

      He was fined a further shilling on 23 April the same year:
      "The Jurors for our Sovereign Lord the King upon their Oath present that James EDGOOSE late of the Parish of Gosberton within the Parts of Holland and County of Lincoln aforesaid Farmer on Monday the first Day of April in the fifty sixth Year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George the third that now is King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland with Force and Arms in the Parish of Gosberton

James FAIRBANKS and Samuel FAVELL were sworn in Court.
      (HQS A/1/Boston 1816 Easter No. 40)

      "In Recognizance Against James EDGOOSE of Gosberton Farmer for an Assault on James FAIRBANKS - A true Bill. App. Submitted - fined 1s. and Recognizance discharged" (HQS Minutes Boston Easter Sessions 1816).

      Their daughter Mary Ann was baptised at Gosberton on 3 April 1817. She was buried on 3 October 1820.

      Their daughter Clarissa was baptised at Gosberton on 5 April 1818.

      In the 1818 poll book for the County of Lincoln he is listed as a farmer at Gosberton. He gave one vote to The Hon. Charles Anderson PELHAM, one to Sir Robert HERON, and none to Charles CHAPLIN Esq. of Blankney (June 1818 page 152).
      In the 1823 poll book a James EDGEGOOSE is listed as an auctioneer of Gosberton, and White's 1826 Lincolnshire Directory lists James EDGOOSE, auctioneer, of Cheal, Gosberton.

      Their daughter Elizabeth was baptised at Gosberton on 19 September 1819.

      On 19 January 1820 he placed an advertisement in the Stamford Mercury. From it we know that he had been an auctioneer for fourteen years and used to do business regularly on Saturdays at the Red Cow Inn in Donington: "GOSBERTON CHEAL, 19th Jan. 1820. James EDGOOSE, Auctioneer and Appraiser, conscious of the many favours he has received from his friends and the public in general, during an experience of fourteen years in the above vocations, takes this opportunity of returning his most grateful acknowledgements, and at the same time begs leave to assure them, it is his firm determination to carry on the said business in all its branches, and, by a strict and unremitting attention thereto, hopes to merit their future patronage and support. Further orders will be thankfully received at his house in GOSBERTON CHEAL; or at the RED COW INN in DONINGTON, on a Saturday, where he will regularly attend. Sales punctually settled with the quickest dispatch (Page 1 Column 1).

      An advertisement in the Stamford Mercury dated 28 January 1820 announced the auction by Mr. EDGOOSE of land and a dwelling owned by Mr. Benjamin SELBY of Pinchbeck at the Bull Inn, Pinchbeck, on 3 February 1820.

      In September 1820 an advertisement in the Stamford Mercury announced the auction by J. EDGOOSE of the farm stock of Mr. Kelham GAUNT, late of Hofflet Stow, deceased. "Credit will be given for all bargains at and above 5l. until the 26th day of May, 1821, on approved security".

      In 1821 he seems to have been acting as Pinder at Gosberton: "Against Sarah CLARKE late of Gosberton Widow and Mary the Wife of Samuel FRYER late of the same place Laborer for rescuing eight Geese from James EDGOOSE. A true Bill. Being severally proclaimed and not appearing Venire awarded."
      (HQS Boston 9 & 10 January 1821)
      "Venire Sarah CLARKE late of Gosberton Widow and Mary the Wife of Samuel FRYER late of the same place Laborer to appear and answer to a Bill of Indictment found against them at the last sessions for rescuing eight Geese from James EDGOOSE. Severally proclaimed and not appearing Ordered that a Bench Warrant do forthwith issue."
      (HQS Boston 8 May 1821)
      "Capias Sarah CLARKE late of Gosberton Widow and Mary the Wife of Samuel FRYER late of the same place Labour(er) to appear and answer to a Bill of Indictment found against them at the last Epiphany Sessions for rescuing eight Geese from James EDGOOSE."
      (HQS Boston 10 July 1821)

      Their daughter Jemima was baptised at Gosberton on 20 May 1821. "And he called the name of the first, Jemimah; and the name of the second, Keziah; and the name of the third, Keren-Happuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren."
      (Old Testament, Job 42:14 & 15)

      James EDGOOSE, John GAUNT, and Mary GAUNT, witnessed the marriage at Gosberton, Lincolnshire, in February 1823 between John THOMPSON of Gosberton, bachelor, and Susanna HARE of Gosberton, widow.
      (FreeReg)

      The British Library has amongst its collection entitled 'Building an Archive of Print' an auction poster: "To be sold by auction, by Mr. EDGOOSE, ... February 27, 1823, ... desirable estates situate in Gosberton" (Boston 1823). It is described by the British Library as follows: "This auction poster distributed by Edgoose, a somewhat obscure provincial auctioneer, is a particularly interesting example of local jobbing printing. Sale catalogues and broadsides in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries were usually plainly printed, and rarely elaborate in their design; this item, however, makes effective use of both ornate type and illustration - furthermore, the illustration is signed by the noted Victorian wood engraver, Orlando JEWITT." This poster can be viewed online at www.bl.uk/collections/earlybuilding.html.

      An advertisement placed in the Stamford Mercury on 5 September 1823 announced the auction by Mr. James EDGOOSE at the New Fosdyke Inn on 2 October of the Fosdyke Inn and nearby properties, all in the tenure of Mr. Richard WESTLAND.

      Their son Elmitt was baptised at Gosberton on 14 September 1823.

      Their daughter Kezia was baptised at Gosberton on 26 June 1825.

      "COURT OF CHANCERY
      CIVIL SIDE
      BROWN v. QUINCEY AND KIRBY
      - This was an action of trespass. The plaintiff was the annual tenant of certain premises and grounds under a Mrs. QUINCEY, the tenant for life. On the 6th March Mrs. QUINCEY died, and on the 4th of the ensuing April the defendant, as her administrator, put in a distress for rent up to the 6th March, the usual period of the plaintiff's paying rent being on Old Lady Day, or 6th April. Under this distress a seizure was made of the plaintiff's cattle just as they were about to sold by auction.
      James EDGEGOOSE, the auctioneer, cross-examined by Mr. Serjeant Vaughan: Pray, Sir, was your auction impeded at all by this sale? - Yes, it was.
      What, you rested a little, I suppose, upon your knife and fork? - No; we began with the knife and fork before the sale.
      Oh, then, you proceeded to the glass whilst the sale was stopped? - We had a little bit of a touch at it.
      And how much time did this little bit of a touch at the glass occupy? - An hour.
      Could you fill yourself at that time? - Yes, in a good deal less.
      Then you were as full as a leech - like a leech were you? - I think you lawyers be more like leeches, you stick pretty close to folks, and suck them well, howmsoever [a laugh].
      (Morning Chronicle, 20 July 1825)
      (Hereford Journal, 3 August 1825)
      (Stamford Mercury, Friday 22 July 1825)
      (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk)

      An advertisement in the Stamford Mercury dated 26 April 1826 announced the auction by Mr. James EDGOOSE of various property in Gosberton, Quadring and Donnington.

      In White's Lincolnshire Directory of 1826 James EDGOOSE is listed as an auctioneer of Gosberton Cheal.

      James EDGOOSE of Gosberton was listed as a subscriber to the Donington New Association for the Prosecution of Felons in the Stamford Mercury on 22 December 1826, on 14 December 1827, and in December 1828. Perhaps this was prompted by the "notorious EDGOOSE of Holland Fen".
      (Stamford Mercury, various dates)
      (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk)

      Their daughter Kerenhappuck was baptised at Gosberton on 23 November 1828.

      The name of Jas. EDGOOSE of Gosberton Cheal appeared on a list of subscribers to the Bourn New Association for prosecuting felons, extending 20 miles from the parish of Bourn.
      (Stamford Mercury 18 March 1830)
      (www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk)

      Their son John James was baptised at Gosberton on 24 October 1830.

      J. EDGOOSE and S. MERRIMAN were the Stewards at a Ball and Card Assembly to be held at the house John SPRECKLEY at the Crown Inn, Surfleet, on 5 January 1831. Admittance 3s. each.
      (www.britishnewspapersonline.co.uk)

      His niece Susannah EDGOOSE was married to Frederick WILSON at Wisbech St. Peter, Cambridgeshire, on 1 August 1831. She signed her name with a clear hand. Witnesses were James EDGOOSE and Maria WILSON. The identity of James EDGOOSE is revealing: the signature is very similar to that of Susannah's uncle James EDGOOSE of Gosberton, Lincolnshire. No other James was alive at this time, suggesting that the West Walton and Gosberton families were still in touch.

      The name of James ODGOOSE [sic] features in a list of signatories to a letter addressed to the Sheriff of the County of Lincoln requesting him to convene a meeting "for the purpose of taking into consideration the Question of REFORM of PARLIAMENT, and the expediency of presenting PETITIONS upon that subject".
      (Stamford Mercury, Friday 11 November 1831)
      (www.findmypast.co.uk)

      He died on 15 June 1832 aged 52 and was buried two days later in Gosberton Churchyard - only ten days after the burial of his daughter Amey Ann. In his will he refers to his farming and grazing business and to three parcels of land in Gosberton totalling 20 acres and 2 roods, a public house and one acre in Sutton St. Mary, and a further 8 acres in Gosberton and Surfleet. He refers to his eleven children, but names only Arthur, Albert, and Caroline:
