Hello Margaret,
I am not very good at helping people, but have found one marriage, in Berkshire, for a Francis Goodchild, to a Ann Punter, but that was way before the marriage that you are talking about, and was . in 1759. Apart from that there are no others mentioned, here.
There is a Goodchild family in Suffolk, could Francis have originated from there, before marrying?

Much more to come!The Parish Records Collection already contains millions of entries; however, there are millions more still to be added. Our records collection should, therefore, be considered a work-in-progress.

Sorry Margaret, Berkshire not added yet!...(found the above on FMP)

Chris :)

Margaretfinch - I don't know if this is of any help, but I lived in South Ascot as a child in the 1950s, and one of my father's best friends was 'Charlie' Goodchild, to the best of my knowledge, Charlie was a bachelor and would have been a similar age to my dad who was born in1907
