SHORT Ancestors
The Goodridge, Fogwell and Galmpton Lines

Louisa Fogwell Goodridge was born in Dartmouth in around 1840 working back from the census records.  This page is concerned with her ancestors and encompasses the surnames above.

She had a number of brothers and sisters and was the youngest child of Henry Goodridge and Jane Fogwell who probably married in around 1815. Of Louisa's nine brothers and sisters no fewer than five also carried the middle name Fogwell.

Henry Goodridge was baptised in Paignton 26/1/1792, the sixth of eleven children of Alan Goodridge and Elizabeth. Alan had married Elizabeth Galmpton in Paignton on 23/9/1780. Alan was himself the fifth child - baptised 16/5/1759 of Richard Goodridge and his wife Grace. Interestingly, this couple appear to have had two sets of twins. There were many Goodridges in Paignton but further analysis of these suggests that they were all from one tree.

Judging by the census returns Jane Fogwell was born in 1797 or 1798. The Fogwell's were not a Dartmouth family and it appears that Jane Fogwell was actually Jane Stokes Fogwill, from Totnes.

Jane Stokes Fogwill was baptised 20/11/1797 - the youngest child of John Fogwill and Elizabeth (nee Hawkins), who were married 30/5/1781. John Fogwill was the eldest son of William Fogwill and Agnes (nee Hooper). John Fogwell (or Fogwill) was a coal merchant. One of his sons - Thomas - either set up on his own in this trade in Dartmouth or extended the family business to that town. Henry Goodridge was also a Coal Merchant - based on the entries in the registers for his children's marriages.

As with the Goodridge's the spelling of the surname varied with Jane's four brothers all shown as Fogwell, though her elder sister (also Jane) was Fogwill

This descent was based initially on data from the IGI (International Genealogical Index) but has been checked against the parish records. All Goodridge records are Paignton and Fogwell records are Totnes unless identified differently. Details of brothers and sisters are given in the listings below.
