Ernest Gotts identified an Orford/Offord Gotts in Canada in 1918, who came from Hackney. He also identified Orford has having a son born in England in 1911 and more children in Canada. He is on both the 1891 and 1901 census but they aren’t so easy to find. In 1901 he is listed as OFFORD GOTTS with his wife Adelaide in Hackney.
In 1891 he is ORFORD COTTS as the youngest of 8 children, also in Hackney. His father is John Gotts a brush borer from Walworth, (who we have already as John 2920) and his mother is Mary Ann Mumford. John’s father is John 1186 Gotts who married Elizabeth Treeby in 1834.
In Canada, the family settled in Stratford, Ontario and Ernest has been able to trace another 10-15 Gottses to add to the tree.
