GOSS in Staffordshire, England
James GOSS was located in Staffordshire, England he is living with his family of wife and three boys in 1881 he was a games keeper he had been born in Staffordshire in 1837 but in another area, it seems his father Thomas was also a games keeper which therefore cause them to move around and not even in the same county therefore making the location of his fathers birth even more confounding. They immigrated to Canada shortly after as one son was born in England, shortly after the census but before they came to Canada in 1882. They first lived in Jumping Pond Alberta as they have 3 more sons and a daughter all born there. They were living in Ashcroft, British Columbia in 1891. This is the short but aggravating story of my Goss family. Hi all have found that this Family originated in Derbyshire original name Gorse. The fathers name is Thomas also a games keeper as I have been told previously, but had no proof of.
