Castle Camps: Families



There seem to be two main Greygoose families in our wider area. Thomas and James may have been father and son, but there doesn't seem to be any further information on the widely available sources. Both family groups are summarised here...

Thomas GREYGOOSE married Mary THEAKE  13 July 1772 in Castle Camps. I have found two children for them:

Thomas Junior and his wife Sarah had a large family all baptised in Shudy Camps as follows:

Josiah married Eliza WILSON (daughter of Charles Wilson and his wife Susan nee LISTER) on 8 August 1829 in Shudy Camps. Josiah was a widower living alone in Shudy Camps when the 1881 Census was recorded. All their known children were baptised in Shudy Camps.


Milley GREYGOOSE had a daughter named Maria Graves GREYGOOSE, born 30 Jun 1839 in Shudy Camps. She married George AGER in 1857.

Elizabeth GREYGOOSE had a daughter Jane bp 3 Mar 1839 in Shudy Camps

Thomas GREYGOOSE may be the same as was living in Shudy Camps in the 1881 Census, married to Amelia and with son William aged 10 years. Once again the ages do not quite match with baptism dates. However they did have a duaghter named Sarah Jane, baptised 20 February 1846. later married to James AGER. Thomas was the steward of a benefit society in Shudy Camps, and was taken to task at the Linton Petty Session in 1848 for refusing to pay James Mynott his sick allowance [Cambridge Chronicle and Journal, Saturday 01 January 1848]

James GREYGOOSE (the son of James and Mary nee HODSON) married Ruth BLACKWELL 27 March 1806 in Bartlow. James was buried in Bartlow in 1832. She was the daughter of Thomas BLACKWELL and Jane FREEMAN, baptised 6 Nov 1785. Their family were all baptised in Bartlow as follows:

George married Phyllis MARSH (bpt. 28 June 1818 in Ashdon the daughter of Samuel and Phoebe (nee Slogrove) Marsh) and had 9 children as follows:

Researcher Vickie Slogrove has a website with connections to this family and with information about the area.

George GREYGOOSE married Susan WINTERFLOOD in 1869. His father was named as Joseph REID on their marriage certificate - still working on this one!
