Did you ever have any luck investigating Eliza Goldings roots?
We share Eliza as a ancestor - she was my Great Great Grandmother and my Great Grandfather (her son) was Thomas Henry Evans. I have no knowledge of a family story relating to Eliza. The only family 'story' relates to the Evans side in that some one walked from Wales to London and have found it very difficult to prove - did you ever hear anything regarding this in your branch of the family?
Please let me know if you have found out anything further as this would prove really intersting.
