Overview of my Lineage and Family Research

Golden - William - DNA results - Ancestry

Now that my hair has turned to silver, and some silver to white, I have more time to do some things.

In a bit of good fortune I live now within a 90 minute drive of where John Golding (b.1635-1640) lived at Gloucester, Virginia and just one hour from where William Golding (1704-1782) lived at Orange in Orange County, Virginia before moving much of his family to South Carolina.

My family research started in the late 1970s but I quit in the late 1990s due to hitting a brick wall on identifying my grandfather Green Golden. Due to new tools, databases and much more information being available,  I renewed my family research as of April 2013 and have been ever so glad that I did.

I very much look forward to exchanging notes, thoughts,  and ideas on Goldings, Goldens, Gouldings (G-Folk) of all origins.

A Goulding family bible has been found for the family of Edmund Goulding (1836-1921) and Susanna Jane Scivier (1835-1915) of Hursley, Hampshire, England. The bible found its way to South Africa, where it now resides.

The current owner would like to get it to a descendant Goulding family member if one steps forward. Contact me at and ask for contact with Leila Kappers.

Edmund and Susanna had no sons and two daughters: Elizabeth and Louisa.
