Note: Image kindly provided by Di Godwin.

Note: The headstone for George is inscribed that he was 87 years of age at the time of his death in 1890. These are the same details as contained in his death certificate. This would mean that George Garlick was born about 1803. It is recorded that George Godwin, the convict, was 22 years of age at the time of his arrival in NSW. This would have George being born about 1808. In addition, the death certificate for George Garlick, includes the information that he was 47 years of age at the time of his marriage in 1852. This would have him born about 1805. To further complicate this matter, the DOB included on the Ticket of Leave for George, the convict, was 1818.

"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."

"[A] plaque and monument (a large bolder) was unveiled in Oct 1963 to to celebrate the centenary of Forster. The monument is in a tiny park in McIntosh Street on what was the original Godwin land, and is on/near to the site of their original home.

You will note that the monument shows the family arrived in January 1862, but at the time of preparing for the centenary there was conjecture and debate about the actual date of arrival. The centenary celebrations committee even produced / sold a small commemorative booklet, "Lakeland Adventure, A History of the Early Days of Forster-Tuncurry", in which it was stated that George Godwin (and family) came from Gosford in 1856! However, it was subsequently learned (and now proved) that the date was incorrect; it is fairly certain that the family did not arrive until late 1862 / early 1863. For one reason, three more Godwin children were born in the Gosford / Kincumber area, after 1856. In addition, George did not select / pay the deposit on his Forster land until mid 1863. Further, it was about 6 months after their settlement at Forster, which was then known as Cape Hawke, that the 6th child (Harriet Cape Godwin) was born and it is widely accepted that she was the 'first white child born at Forster'; this fact was also recorded on her headstone."

"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."

"[A] plaque and monument (a large bolder) was unveiled in Oct 1963 to to celebrate the centenary of Forster. The monument is in a tiny park in McIntosh Street on what was the original Godwin land, and is on/near to the site of their original home.

You will note that the monument shows the family arrived in January 1862, but at the time of preparing for the centenary there was conjecture and debate about the actual date of arrival. The centenary celebrations committee even produced / sold a small commemorative booklet, "Lakeland Adventure, A History of the Early Days of Forster-Tuncurry", in which it was stated that George Godwin (and family) came from Gosford in 1856! However, it was subsequently learned (and now proved) that the date was incorrect; it is fairly certain that the family did not arrive until late 1862 / early 1863. For one reason, three more Godwin children were born in the Gosford / Kincumber area, after 1856. In addition, George did not select / pay the deposit on his Forster land until mid 1863. Further, it was about 6 months after their settlement at Forster, which was then known as Cape Hawke, that the 6th child (Harriet Cape Godwin) was born and it is widely accepted that she was the 'first white child born at Forster'; this fact was also recorded on her headstone."
