George H Goffin - Manor Farm Dairy.
Note: George Henry Goffin was born in 1893, the 7th child of Francis Charles Goffin (The Pork Butcher of No 21 High Street) and Ellen Sophia (Naunton). (See Baggott's Mill). George married Elsie Annie Hawes in 1913. In 1936, their daughter, Barbara, marries Ernest Chapman, known as 'Shrimp'. (See wedding photo, right.)They have two sons, Barry and Nigel. All become involved in the dairy. George and his son-in-law, Shrimp, both have milk rounds, Barry often accompanying George and their horse, Charlie, and Nigel making deliveries with his father and their horse, Tony (Pictured right).
We are grateful to Judy Simmons (nee Hurst) for sharing her memories, Liz Morgan for details of the Goffin family, Nigel Chapman for permitting us to reproduce the picture of his father and his horse and John Goffin for the photograph of 'Shrimp' and Barbara's wedding.
