There is a George Gotts in the 1823 Poll directory, a smith, in St Augustines parish.There is no close candidate in the 1841 census.

This is presumably the same George Gotts as in 1823. It is not known whether he had more than one stable or had moved since 1823.

George Gotts Golding is the son of George Golding and Lettice Gotts in tree #124.

He was working for Cubitt & Sons, a different company to Cubitt & Gotts in Ipswich.
