My last name is Gooday and am a direct descendant of William Nott Gooday. Have found some interesting facts on your tree. There is one child missing from your 12 as there are thirteen.
Their 6th child was Florence, born 1880. She went on to marry Thomas Samson, with one daughter that I know of by the name of - wait for it - Ngaire.
Thomas had the nickname of Dodd, better known for his walking pursuits around N.Z. similar to - I think A H Reed (if my memory serves me correct.)

I just noticed something else. William Nott Gooday 1843-1923, born Essex, to William Gooday & Mary Ann Nott. William Nott's grandmother was Sarah.
I'll have a closer study and let you know of anything else.
