    Public

    George Goodman was Australia's first professional photographer. His birth date was unknown. But his death was also a puzzle. This Trove list accompanies my article uncovering the true identity of G.B. Goodman. It includes significant events in his timeline. The list also includes references to other works treating Goodman's biography. Significant dates follow in yyyy-mm-dd format.

    My April 2019 article begins thus:

    "George Barron Goodman was Australia’s first professional photographer. Armed with territorial rights for Beard’s English patent of the Daguerreotype, he began operating in Sydney in 1842 before moving on to Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Adelaide, Newcastle, Maitland and Goulburn, interspersed with return stays in Sydney.

    "Biography has managed only one of his life’s termini – death in 1851 – but neither birth nor burial. I went looking for a birth date and turned up more than I expected and more than George Goodman himself may have hoped."

    9.9
    20 November 1993 to Sandy Barrie, Sydney

    I am sure you are aware of footnote No.33 on page 174 of Gael Newton's Shades of Light where she writes with regard to G. B. Goodman's death ‘Sydney Morning Herald, 2 June 1851’ (sic. this surely is a mistake for 18 October, with 2 June being the date reported for his death) ‘gives notice of Goodman's death. His “departures” from the colonies were often deliberately mis–stated. Alan Davies, who has researched Goodman extensively, believes the obituary may have been a ruse to escape creditors’.
    If Alan Davies had looked for confirmation of the date of death of Goodman and thus failed to find it in a place where it could be expected then such later speculation would have been justified as a hypothesis that might explain conflicting evidence. But this is not the case, and thus he appears to be guilty of empty and unwarranted speculation that can do nothing but harm to progress in understanding. It will be difficult to obtain substantial documentary evidence about Goodman's death because it was reported to be in Paris, while if it had been in England (and I suppose in Australia) a record of a Death Certificate could be easily found. The General Register Office in London (previously at Somerset House but now in the Aldwych just behind the Australian High Commission, Australia House) does have an ‘Index to Consular Deaths 1849–1870’ in which foreign deaths of English people abroad that were notified to the consulate at the time of death are listed. I checked this index but neither Goodman nor Gershon was listed. The Public Record Office also have some records of the Registrar General's Office: unfortunately I forgot to check under Gershon but Goodman was not found in ‘Index to Miscellaneous Registers of Deaths and Burials [abroad], 1717–1917’ (Public Record Office, RG43/3) or in ‘Index to volumes 1–23 of Miscellaneous Registers and Certificates of Deaths ... of British Subjects in Foreign Countries kept and made by various British Foreign and Colonial Authorities since 1801 [–1870]’ (PRO, RG43/4). Although Goodman is not listed in the above records this certainly does not prove that he did not die in Paris in 1851 for there is every reason to believe that the above records do not record every death. It is very likely that Jewish records could be more productive as you mentioned in your letter of 1 November, or could there even be any official records in Australia of the deaths abroad of Australian residents?

    Bergman, G. F. J. George Baron Goodman / p.301-306, 381-382. ( v.7, no.4 1973)

    "After his return to England, Goodman probably continued to work in his profession as photographer, yet cruel fate made a sudden end to his promising career. On 18th October, 1851, the Sydney Morning Herald reported than on 2nd June, 1851, Mr George Goodman, who had been much respected during his sojourn in Sydney by all who knew him, had died in Paris after a short illness, leaving a large family in England."

    1839-06-15 (report Abraham Polack may leave colony).
    It has been currently reported for the last three weeks, that the Rothschild of New South Wales was about taking his departure from our shores by the Andromache, on Tuesday next ; but on inquiry, we find that such is not the fact; but Mrs. Polack, with her daughter and sons, go home by that ship, the former for the benefit of her health, and for the purpose of placing the latter at a first-rate seminary, preparatory to their receiving a college education. We understand this is a preliminary step towards Mr. P. winding up his affairs and retiring from business and the Colony altogether, to enjoy in peaceful retirement the benefits arising from the splendid property he has accumulated by his successful speculations; and most indefatigable exertions. Mrs. Polack leaves this with the good wishes of every one to whom she is known.

The shipboard meeting between Sarah and George quickly blossomed into a romance. On landing in Sydney, however, the couple struck opposition from Sarah's father, well-known Sydney emancipist auctioneer Abraham Polack. Polack's first objection was the difference in age between Sarah and her much older suitor..."
