Collins Family

Hello, I am currently researching my family tree and am looking for information on Collins family Joseph Collins who married Frances Goldfinch and lived with their family in Chamberhouse Farm Thatcham between 1810-1850 he was listed on 1851 census as a farm bailiff.  I know that Joseph Collins was born in 1783 in Kingsclere Hants and became farm bailiff the Collins family and a lot of other people in my tree had connections with Ufton Court in Berkshire his wife was born Frances Goldfinch and her parents were George Goldfinch and Frances Norris and a high percentage of my tree alternated between Hampshire and Berkshire.


One of my ancestors, George MAY, is described as a butcher at Goldings Yard, Thatcham, berween 1825 -1830. He died in 1830 and his brother Henry William MAY ran the business until c. 1839 when he moved into Bartholomew St., Newbury.

Can you please tell me whether Goldings Yard is still in existence, and if not where it would have been.

Thank you.
