Hi all,

Looking for help expanding the French Huguenot side of my family tree.

JOHN (JEAN) GODIER - b: 30/11/1752
MARY FORECAST - Chr: 2/2/1755
Married: 23/10/1775 at Saint Luke Old Street, Finsbury, London

Parents of John (Jean) Godier
JEAN GOUDIERE - b:16/1/1727

Parents of Jean Goudiere
ISAAC GOUDIERE - b.2/2/1703
Married: August 1723, French Church, Threadneedle St, London

Parents of Isaac Goudiere

I believe Mary Forecast is either the daughter or niece of BENJAMIN FORECAST (chr: Dec 31 1733) and MARY CANNELL (b. abt 1735) - I have seen this surname also spelt Forquaist and Ferques - would be most grateful if anyone can confirm/deny this for me.

If anyone has a connection to this tree or has more information that can help - I would dearly love to hear from you. Please reply or email me!

Online listings from the LDS archives appear to be relevant to your investigations.

For GODIER etc., you will need to use the "Advanced Search" and also confirm for "Use exact spelling". I tried four variations: GODIER, GODIERE,GOUDIER and GOUDIERE.
Isaac GODIER, ch. in 1702, puts this family in Canterbury at the Wallooons or Strangers Church and a documentary reference can be found in "Source Information" that may be worthy of further inquiry.

Spelling was somewhat variable in those days, as you see from the variations on BIZOU. You should search the other surnames both without and with exact spelling to see what shows up at your known locations and times. You may be able to add some date, source, parental or sibling information in some of your lines: FOR(E)CAST, etc. At least it will open up a new set of questions.

Hi Phil
I have all of these people on my tree too!!!
I'm related to Elizabeth Godier b 1837 daughter of James Godier and Sarah Cheese and James was the son of Jean Godier and Mary Forecast. Happy to compare notes. I too am confused as to whom Mary was born as there were two Mary's born in 1755......

Kindest regards Joss

Hi Joss,

My friend, Lauchlan (Wayne) THOMPSON is happy for me to correspond with you and supply any information that we have- in fact I have it all here on my computer, and Wayne feels I have a better understanding of his Tree than he does- this is probably true LOL

Please feel free to contact me directly at:

More than happy to exchange information etc, as I said, I spoke with Wayne a few moments ago to get his OK for this.

Hope to hear from you

Kind Regards
Gordon Beach

Goderre, Goder, Gauderre, Godier (Jean Baptiste Goder)

Thanks B.

Surnames: Godier Forecast Agombar English
I am also helping a friend in Adelaide with his family tree. He is descended from Isaac Godier and Mary Bean's daughter Esther who married Joseph English. I am related to another Esther Godier, the daughter of Jean and Mary (Forecast) Godier who married Jacob Agombar.
I also came across the Victorian Godiers and would be happy to share with you but you may have more than I have.
