Trying to locate any Jordan descended from the families from Goldhanger Essex. My paternal grandfather Samuel 1874 had 3 sisters Alice 1869 Ellen 1876 Kate 1878 married to William Wade plus 2 brothers Frank 1880 and Walter 1866.

Mike, have you tried "search trees" (above) to see if anyone shares these ancestors?

Thanks for that. I have had a search go and have found quite a bit of commonality with other trees but most of the family seam to have diverged quite early.
I was interested in the last 3 generation as I seem to have great uncles and aunts that i know nothing about.

This is a bit of a trek, but with a lot of effort you should be able to get to living relatives who can be traced via electoral register. Phew!! Depends how determined you are! At least you have a reasonable name to go on.

Thanks so much. Lots of families seem to lose contact. My grandfather Samuel Jordan 1874 was killed in 1940 when his farm at Stanford-Le-Hope was bombed just before I was born, and I never heard anything about his brothers and sisters from my father Arthur Jordan 1905 so it would be nice to trace them.

I wish you luck Mike - don't give up. I had been a member for about 5 years when out of the blue found my husband's half-sister on here! We knew nothing about her. My family was a split up as could be, but since starting this cousins have been popping up on a regular basis, which is great. So never too late.

me too - I found one after years of searching - posted a Trying to Find one Sunday morning, went out shopping, came home and there it was a reply from a second cousin who had been living just about five miles away from me for over thirty years!!! through that of course I found a first cousin and we are now in regular contact and have met on a number of occasions

Thanks Anne of Green Gables for your info. I have now realised that there were 2 Jordan families in Goldhanger in 1881.My Great Grandfather's in Fish Street and my Great Uncle's in Church Street and they both had 6/7 children.
There's no end to this!

Not strictly relevant, but I have Samuel Jordan b circa 1775 d 1847 married Sarah Rouse as my 4th Gt Grandparents and their daughter Mary Jordan b circa 1802 d 1848 married James Gooch all of Goldhanger.

Samuel and Sarah had 2 further children, Sarah Ann and Caroline.

So it would appear that, unless they had a son(s), they are not direct ancestors of your grandfather. I have been unable to find any siblings or parents of Samuel Jordan.

In the 1871 census James Gooch is living at 120 fish Street (mentioned in another reply to this topic). Other ancestors of mine lived in Church Street.

Hi Peter
On my tree I have Samuel and Sarah having a son Samuel 1811 married to Sarah Mansell. They are my direct line.
I think there are 2 Jordan families in Goldhanger, one set in Fish Street and another which I didn't know about in Church Street
have you copies of the census docs?
Regard
Mike Jordan
