bullet  General Notes:

At the time of the 1841 Census Sarah was living in East Lane, St Alphage, Greenwich (probably East Street where her deceased husband had been recorded as living previously). She was 31, not born in the County ad Widowed. Living with her were children Agnes, 8; William,4; and George, 2. George's age appears to be incorrect as he was about 5.

Son James (see 1851 census) was born out of wedlock after the death of her husband, William. His baptism record shows his parents as Henry Alders and Sarah, with Henry Alders crossed out, surname for the child is Gouldthorpe, and Sarah is recorded as a "single woman" of East Street, Greenwich. Given that Sarah had a son named James, aged 8, living with her at the time of the 1851 census, and she lived in East Street, and she was widowed at this time I believe that this is her James. I believe that Henry Alders was the father but that, for whatever reason, his name was crossed out - perhaps as the child was not going to carry his name. There is a Henry Alders living in Greenwich in the 1841 census - he is a 40 year old "Pensioner" situated in the Greenwich Royal Hospital for Seamen.

By 1851 she was living with her new husband William Richardson - read his entry for details.

She was the executor for her first husband's aunt Amelia Gouldthorp in 1863. She was named as Sarah Ann Gouldthorp.
