By reconstructing the layout of the homestead buildings from old photos, it didn't take our cousin Matt Ross long to find our homestead. To see how he found it look here: https://www.gooderham-worts.ca/showmedia.php?mediaID=446 .
The farmhouse is listed as a heritage building and apparently dates from the 1600's. It is located at the intersection of what is now Low Road and Scole Common Road. You can see the Heritage Listing here https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1050246 .
According to a newspaper clipping, William's grandparents John Gooderham and Elizabeth Cobb also lived in this home, perhaps around 1740 when they married. William’s parents James Gooderham and Sarah Rodwell also lived there. See these three generations of our tree here: https://www.gooderham-worts.ca/register.php?personID=I1&tree=G1&generations=3
In 1831 and 1832 the three siblings, William, Ezekiel and their sister Elizabeth and her husband James Worts emigrated to Toronto Canada and started what became at one time, the largest distillery in the world, Gooderham &Worts.
1740-1832 Our Gooderham Homestead is a Heritage Listed Building
This story describes how we found our Gooderham homestead in Scole, England. Not only did our three ancestors grow up here, their father James Gooderham did too and so did his father, John, perhaps from the time he married Elizabeth Cobb around 1740.
