Brief History


Edward was born in 1802.  Genealogy records available through LDS resources show him dying the next year, but I have found nothing in the local records or temple records of his relatives to support it.


There are census entries of an Edward Giles living in Goudhurst for several decades.  The age of the individual jumps around, but is usually too young for our Edward.  Still, the birthplace is suitable, the age is within range, Edward is a servant and worker like many of his relatives, and in 1841 he lived next door to the family of George Giles, a likely candidate for our Edward’s brother.


David King Udall believed in 1877 that Edward had died.





Parish Records for Goudhurst, Kent - Christenings

Edward son of Edward & Sarah Giles, christened 14 Mar 1802



1841 Census District 4, Goudhurst, Kent

Edward Giles 30, born Kent, trade "M - S" (M - L?)

Note: Even though Edward is listed as nine years too young, this entry is still appealing because next door is household of George Giles.  Our Edward had a brother George, though this George is also listed as six years younger than Edward's brother.  Edward lived in household of Ann Vonsden, a farmer, at Hen Green.  Trade might mean Manual Servant or Manual Laborer.
