Edward GOULDEN (

February 25, 1893 (WTHBH) During Monday night the residence of Mr. E. Goulden, in the Borough, Canterbury, was burglariously entered from the rear, and the thief or thieves carried off nearly £9 in gold and silver. There was a lot of silver articles in the same room in which Mr. Goulden had placed the money, but none of these were taken. Last week there were three burglaries at Ickham and Stodmarsh, and the police believe that the same man committed these as well as the one in Canterbury.

March 7, 1903, Canterbury Bankruptcy Court - Re: George Jones MASSEY, late of No. 10, 11, 12, 13 The Borough, Canterbury, Draper. This debtor applied for his discharge. The Deputy Official Receiver...The bankrupt commenced business in May 1894 at 1, Bon Marche, Hornsay, with a capital of 200 pounds, which he subsequently increased by 150 pounds. In 1896 he sold the buisenss for 444 pounds, buying the business at Canterbury for 445 pounds. Thiat business was only successful for a short period, and in 1897 he commenced to borrow money from Issac Gordon, the money lender. Brankrupt attributed his failure to trade competition but it was no doubt due to going to Gordon for money and paying 40 per cent for the advance. WTHBH
