Ancestor Hung for Murder

Posted: 1178913889000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Goulding, Golden, Waters
There's a family story about a Goulding who, after emigrating from England to Southampton, Ontario, changed his name to Golden to escape the shame of a family member being hung for Murder. The only information I have is that this imigrant's wife was called Ann Waters, and they had a son Robert (who was my ancestor).
I've been trying unsucessfully to find information on the murderer.
Does anyone know anything about this (and I know its a long shot) or can anyone recommend any sources?
