"The information on this death certificate as given by the eldest son Nathaniel reflects several facts that sit uncomfortably with the convict George Godwin. Firstly… age of death has his birth date around 1803-4 in Malmesbury. This date is further back-up with his age of 47 years (if born post 26th May 1852) when he married in Kincumber on 26th May 1852."
