There is a marriage on the family search site of a Joseph Goodman to Phebe Botsford 26th March 1827 in Edlesborough Bucks.
Phebe shown on census as born Edlesborough.
Seems they would only be about 11 and 12 but am told this was not unknown.Could be a reason we see no kids until Matilda c 1837.
Then they have shed loads.

First sign of Charles born to Joseph and Phebe is on 1861 census born c1856.
There is another Charles born c1834 to Benjamin Goodman and Mary nee Tibbett.

Thanks Tom n Harry. The fact that you mention Matilda sounds correct. The other siblings I seem to be able to match with her are Samuel, George, John, Emma, Eli and then Charles. If these are the 'shed loads' then you've found them for me. Can you confirm this name match please?
& obliged,
