Oliver Goldsmith revisited, c1991: p. ix, chronology (b. Nov. 10, 1731?) p. 1 (Goldsmith told a biographer that he had been born on 29 Nov. 1731, or perhaps it was 1730; his older sister said Nov. 10, 1729; references in Goldsmith's letters, together with alternative suggestions from other members of the family mean that every year from 1727 to 1731 has had its advocates)
