Stephen Goldsack (1741-1809) married Ann Birch 7 January 1768 at Folkestone.  Ann was born in 1740 and died in 1803. Stephen died at Woolwich in 1809. There is speculation that Stephen may be a son of George (1708), the son of Petter Gouldsacke (1679) and Sarah Arthur (1675). George was married to Ann Austin on 20 Oct 1740 at Kennington (near Ashford). At the time of their marriage George was described as being “of High Halden”(also near Ashford). While there has been no evidence found that definitively links George to Stephen (yet!) it is interesting to note that George (1708) was a member of the Ashford congregation of Baptists.  Many of Stephen’s descendants were baptised and married in the Baptist church in Woolwich.  Also, it is interesting to note that the naming pattern of Stephen’s eldest children is consistent with his being a child of George and Ann.


The information presented on this page is derived from the work of Margaret and Arthur Jackson and from files sent to me by Jim Goldsack from Atlanta, Georgia.  I’ve added the Coveney information provided by Tom Brennan and material from the 1881 and 1901 UK Census.

There is reportedly a painting by James Sharples that shows the Forge at Woolwich Arsenal, with the inventor George Goldsack (1795).


ATTENTION, WE NEED YOUR HELP: There is great interest in determining the validity of the claim that George Goldsack invented the ‘Forge’. Also in locating the Sharples painting. In Wilbur Goldsack's MS on "The Family of Goldsack Thanet Kent", he mentions that the Sharples' painting "is preserved by the family". Please, if you know anything about this story contact me with the details.  Note: it is possible that the painting was the work of Paul Sandby
