Martha Wigget(or Wiggit) was born 1 October 1823 in Mosley By, England. On 4 August 1850 she was married to James Godso who was born 17 July 1826 in Birmingham, England.
Martha and James left Birmingham about 1856 or 1857 for Australia in the “City of Hobart” with three daughters Jean, Ellen( Nellie) and Alma and they settled in Melbourne where James was either a goldminer or working in the goldfields as a builder. While they were there and living in the suburb Carlton they had a son whom they called James Carlton Godso.
The family left Melbourne on the “Omeo” and arrived in Dunedin in 1862. In Dunedin their youngest daughter, Lizzie, was born. Again it is not known whether James was a goldminer or whether he was building but it is known that he eventually formed a partnership “Anderson and Godso -Builders”
In 1873 James built a family home in Ravensbourne.
James died accidently in 1881 but Martha lived for many years, dying 8 September 1909 at the age of 88
