Welcome to the Goddard Family History website. This site is dedicated to one particular
family, the Goddard’s of Brentford Middlesex, to their descendants and to their families.
The Goddard’s moved into Brentford area in the early 19th century, although other
Goddard’s had been living there since as early as the 17th century, no evidence has
been uncovered as of now to suggest that they were ever related to one and other.
The Goddard’s became a prominent family name in the Brentford, Ealing and Isleworth
area, marrying into the families of the CLARKE; CLUTTERBUCK; DAVIS; DRYDEN; ELMS;
EVERETT; GOLDING; MOAKES;SMITH; TIMBERLAKE; TOE; WARD; WILTON; WRIGHT and YOUNGS
to name but a few, with their descendants moving from Middlesex to live in the counties
of Berkshire; Buckinghamshire; Essex; Kent; Surrey and beyond, and emigrating to
the countries of Australia and Canada.
When completed the database will contain over a thousand individuals and more than
160 unique surnames, currently at a 166. The database contains personal records,
census, parish records, BMD index’s and much more.
