First Generation  Next


1. John Goodinowe, son of Robert Goodinowe-Goodynowe 1 and Mary Tudor,1 was born about 1535 and died on 7 Jan 1593 in Ebbsborne Wake, Wiltshire, England about age 58.

General Notes: Although we show John and Margaret as the parents of Thomas A., the connection must be better proven. The county is right but towns are non-substantiative. The names William, Julyan and Margaret do not continue in the line - only John and Thomas, sons of Thomas A., are found. In addition, John's Will indicates that the three children were under the age of 17 or, more likely under 16. We show a Will date of 7 Jan 1593. Thomas was the second child and would have been born no earlier than 1579. John, the father, was a husbandman.
From Ursula's 1618 Will we have the order of the children. Dorothy, Edmund and Ursula were under age 20, making five sons 20 or older. Thus, the oldest, Ralph would have been born no later than 1588, assuming 2 years between births, and Thomas, no later than 1598. Assuming Thomas A. was 23 at the birth of Ralph, the former would have been born ca. 1565. The 14-year gap (1565-1579) in these calculated births seems to show the unlikelihood of Thomas of John and Thomas A. as being the same person.

Will of John Goodinowe:
"In the name of God Amen the 18th day of November Year One Thousand ... I, John Goodinowe of the parrish of Ebbesbourn wake in the county of Wilts, husbandman, sick in body, but ... and perfect remembrance do ordain and make this my last will and testament in manner and form following: First, I bequeth my Soul to almighty God my body to be buried in the churchyard of Ebbesbourn ....

From Goodenows' Ghosts, Vol. 26, No. 2, p.38; information from U.K.-based Genealogist Jenny Potter:
Thomas' Will is a very interesting document when seen in its entirety because we have the rough notes from which the Will was written. The notes read as follows:
Upon the the xxth of December last 1617 Ths Goodinough did say that he would give unto his 3 youngest children to witt Dorothy Edmund & Ursula each of them xls [40 shillings] a piece to be paid unto them at the age of xx [20] yeares

All the rest of his goods & cattels he gave to Ursula his wife whom he made his executrix & he appointed Joseph Bower & Robert Button his overseers
Witnessed
John Button minister

The will was then written out formally:

Commentary on the Will of Thomas Goodinowe:
The spelling of the surname was Goodinough in the rough notes but Goodynow and Goodinow in the fair copy. There was no concept of "correct" spelling at this time.
This is a nuncupative Will, which means the testator did not sign it. The normal process in the making of a Will was that the testator dictated his wishes to someone, usually a "will scribe" who then went away and wrote out the Will in a formal manner and returned for the testator to sign it in front of witnesses. It was customary not to make a Will until you felt the end was imminent. Sometimes people left it too late, or were surprised by sudden illness or an accident and the result is an unsigned or nuncupative Will. Sometimes these Wills read "I give" showing that the Will was dictated but the testator did not sign the fair copy. This one reads "He gave" showing that the testator did not even have leisure to dictate his intentions properly. The handwriting of the notes shows that Thomas's wishes were scribbled down in some haste. Later a formal copy has been made stating that this was a nuncupative will and adding more formal phrasing.
And an interesting thought when we compare the two versions ... did Thomas get his full inheritance? The notes said that Nathaniel and Thomas should have two bullocks, but it doesn't say if this was two each or two between them. The final draft says they should have one bullock apiece.
Ralph was considered a legal witness even though he was a beneficiary. The other witness, John Button, was a minister. Obviously, he was a suitably authoritative person to act as a witness.
The probate:
... proved at the court of Sarum on the 19th March 1617 ... [The new year began on Lady Day, the 25th March, so it was still 1617 when Thomas's Will was proved. We would call it 1618 as we think of the year beginning on January 1st. The usual way to write these dates early in the year is 1617/18.]
We know Thomas died on or immediately before 20th December 1617 - five days before Christmas - because that is the date on the Will. It was not at all unusual for there to be several months delay before completing the formalities.
At the same time an inventory of goods was presented to the court - the same date is shown in the Latin endorsement at the end of the inventory.
An inventory was required by law, and it can give us more important information where it has survived with the Will. This inventory was taken on the 6th February 1617. Again it states that Thomas was of Donhead St. Andrew. The inventory was "taken and praised," written down and the goods valued by
John Button, clerk
Alexander Weekes
Joseph Bower
John Compton
The total value of Thomas's goods was 125 10s 4d, which is quite considerable for the time.
I have not reproduced the inventory in its original form; instead I have tried to interpret it so as to give it some meaning for people today. Those Goodenow Family Ass'n. members who made the trip to England in July 2007 and visited the 17th Century houses in the Weald & Downland Museum may be able to relate this to the Bayleaf farmhouse that they saw there.
The items listed tell us a good deal about his life. There is no real estate property mentioned. Probably this would have been copyhold and would have passed automatically to Ralph, the eldest son.
On his farm Thomas had: 20 rother beasts [cattle], five horses, sheep, three pigs, four stooks of bees, and some poultry.
He also grew crops: corn in the barn, hay and vetches, reed, corn growing upon the ground.
The farm equipment included; a cart and plough tackling, all the tools of husbandry, the wood.
He produced food: butter and cheese, bacon.
Sometimes inventories take us around the house room by room. This one does not, but it does tell us something of what was in the house: pewter and brass, the timber vessel, the iron stuff, the bedding and implements that belong thereunto, five table boards and two coffers, one chest, one cupboard, one chair and three stools, his wearing apparell.
And finally: certain goods at Ebbesbourne.
The farm has everything needed to sustain a family: cows, pigs, chickens, and horses for farm work or for riding. In December, corn in the barn would have been wheat or barley and probably some rye; corn on the ground would have just been planted in the autumn for next year's crop.
Wheat and rye were used for bread. Barley was used to brew beer. Water was unsafe to drink so everyone, children included, drank a weak beer commonly called "small beer."
The furniture in the house may not seem very much to us but it is quite typical for the time. The first three items are general household implements. Plates and other tableware were made of pewter and brass. The "timber vessel" is more likely vessels [plural]: brewing barrels and other large containers were commonly made of wood, as were everyday plates and platters. The "iron stuff" would have included items like fire tongs, shovels, pokers, cauldrons and trivets.
As well as the household tasks which are familiar to us, a 17th Century farmer's wife made bread, brewed beer and produced butter and cheese. The garden around the house was used for growing herbs, essential to the household. These would have included the culinary herbs still familiar to us, like thyme and rosemary, but also medicinal herbs like feverfew, and others which were used for keeping moths away from clothes or for providing pleasant scents.
The bedding is usually accompanied by "appurtenances" but in this instance a different word is used "implements". The bed frame itself was made of wood with ropes strung across to form the platform for the mattress. A good bed was of the "four poster" type with curtains to keep out draughts. The covers, sheets, pillows and pillow cases were all valuable items. They are all included in the term "appurtenances" or "implements" in this case. Even so, the whole lot is valued at 50s which was less than 3.
Tables were not normally permanent; they were more commonly boards erected on trestles as and when they were needed - hence the five table boards. Wardrobes were unknown at this period, though cupboards were coming into use. Most things, including clothes, were stored in chests or coffers. A coffer usually meant a smaller chest for valuables. Stools were what most people sat on, or sometimes benches, but Thomas had one chair, probably his chair to be used by the master of the house. That made four seats around the table. It does not seem enough for so large a family, but in contemporary pictures children were often depicted standing at table for their meals.
Thomas's wearing apparell, his clothes, was worth 4 the same amount as the hay and the vetches. The cart and the plough tackle were worth 3; the poultry was worth 3; and the pewter and brass was worth 3 4s.
It is difficult to make comparisons with modem goods and values, but the overall picture is of a small but comfortable farm. The valuers were not overly bothered with the household goods and did not go into detail. There were probably more goods in the house than are shown; some would have been Ursula's. Married women did not legally own anything but it was generally recognized that goods they had brought to the marriage still belonged to them and these would not have been included in the inventory.
As a widow Ursula could legally own the goods left to her under the terms of Thomas's Will. If she remarried they would automatically become the property of her new husband. Many Wills specified that in the case of a widow remarrying she forfeited her right to the property and it should pass immediately to the children. Hence widowhood may have been sad in some respects but it was the one state which gave a woman financial independence. Widowers commonly remarried to gain a housekeeper; widows frequently preferred to remain single.
Evidence of the relationship between John Goodinowe of Ebbesbourne and Thomas Goodinowe of Donhead, based on their Wills.
How does the information from the two wills compare? Does it fit with information from other sources?
We have established that John's children must have been born between 1557 and 1573. Since we think William was the eldest, and allowing two years between children, Thomas's date of birth would be after 1557 and before 1573.
Can we calculate Thomas's date of birth from other sources for comparison?
We know that Thomas's eldest son was Ralph, because that is stated in Ursula's will.
The Confidence passenger list [information from Goodenows...1638A.D.] does not give us Ralph's age, but it gives the ages of his brothers: John 42, Edmund 27 and Thomas 30. That puts John's date of birth ca. 1596. Allow two years between children and we can estimate Ralph's date of birth as ca. 1594.
That seems a little early given what else we know about Ralph. He had his first child, Elizabeth, baptized in Donhead in 1632. The most common age for men to marry was around 25 and the first child was usually born within two years of the marriage, so we would normally assume that Ralph was about 27 in 1632 which gives a date of birth ca. 1605. Did Ralph marry later than usual? It seems so. His younger brother, Simon, had his first child, Mary, baptized in 1626; he began his family six years earlier than Ralph. Considering this, a date of birth ca. 1594 for Ralph is quite feasible.
If we assume the same figures for Thomas, then that makes Thomas about 27 in 1594 when Ralph was born - and gives us a date of birth +/- 1567 which is nicely within the period calculated for John's children [1557-1573]. Of course, Thomas could have been older than 25 when he married, as Ralph was.
We know Thomas died in 1617. If our estimate for his date of birth is correct, he would have been about 50 then. That was quite young, even by the standards of the day. An early, unexpected death would account for the nuncupative Will made in a hurry.
If Thomas was the second son, he would not have inherited John's farm. That would fit with his moving to Donhead, probably to land acquired via his marriage.
Finally, we have links within the two documents:
Nicholas Button was one of the witnesses to John's Will.
John Button, "minister", was one of the witnesses to Thomas's Will, and Thomas appointed Robert Button as one of his overseers.
It may be a coincidence, since the name is quite common in the area, but I hope to prove a family link between Nicholas, John and Robert Button. If the Buttons were related, this would show that John and Thomas Goodenough were both close friends with the same family and thus strengthen the tie between them. It may even be that the two families were related, perhaps by marriage.
Finally, we have the line in the inventory of Thomas' goods:
Item: certaine goods at Ebesbborne ..... xls
The logical assumption is that whatever these goods were, they were stored at the family home in Ebbesboume, presumably occupied at that time by Thomas's elder brother, William.

3. Thomas A. Goodyknow-Goodynow-Goodenow-Goodnow 4 was born about 1565 in Donhead St. Andrew, Wiltshire, England3 and died on 6 Feb 1618 in Donhead St. Andrew, Wiltshire, England5 about age 53.

General Notes: Five members of Thomas' family, with some of their children, came from the south of England to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. They were the three brothers, John, Thomas and Edmund, and their sister Ursula, in 1638 aboard the good ship Confidence; and Dorothy a bit later. They had lived near each other in England in the neighboring shires of Dorset and Wilts; John in Semley, Thomas in Shaftsbury, and Edmund in Dunhead. Shortly after their arrival they joined with others to settle Sudbury, the nineteenth town in Massachusetts. The name Goodenow is well known there today.
The oldest brother, John, had only daughters, ending the name in his line. The third brother, Edmund, the youngest, was by far the most distinguished of the three, being prominent in Sudbury town affairs all his life. He died in 1688 and his life is commemorated by an ancient tombstone in the old Sudbury Cemetery in Wayland, MA.
Edmund's descendants remained in Sudbury for many generations; those of the family in eastern Massachusetts today are largely descended from his line. In general the original Goodenow spelling has been maintained, although Goodnow is quite common and a few Goodenoughs also stem from this line.
The second brother, Thomas, left Sudbury in 1656, when he joined a group that settled the town of Marlboro, MA. Early on, the descendants of Thomas showed the tendency to move into new territories in keeping with the general westward and northward movement from Massachusetts. The first to depart was Samuel, of the fourth generation, who left in 1755 and settled in New Jersey. Other brothers migrated to Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York. Many descendants in these lines changed the spelling of the name to Goodenough.
As the families from both brothers pushed westward, over the Erie Canal, down the Ohio River and across the prairies, they left behind an interesting record. Goodnow Mountain and Goodnow River in the Adirondacks, the town of Goodenow in Illinois, Goodnow Hills in Washington state, and many other sites, stand as mute evidence of the advance of the family. They were early pioneers in many areas: one founded Maquoketa, IA; another founded Manhattan, KS, as well as the State University there; a dozen were '49ers in California; and some were the earliest settlers in Oregon.
Among them were politicians, outlaws, farmers, lawyers, business people, merchants, educators, writers, missionaries, doctors, and soldiers. Some have been prominent; but most, just common folks. Today, Goodenow descendants are in every state and in all walks of life.

Thomas was a husbandman.

General Notes: Immigrant John Ruddick Goodenow did not father any known sons, so his surname did not carry forward. Since genealogists typically do not pay as much attention to female lines as they do to male lines, the number of database entries from John are very few, being only 1% of the total database entries.

Information from Alfred Sereno Hudson, The History of Sudbury:
The passenger list for the ship Confidence gives John's age as 42, Edmund's as 27, and Thomas' as 30. This would indicate birth dates of 1596, 1611 and 1608, respectively. Their sister Dorothy was married to John Ruddick, also a passenger on the Confidence. Thomas' wife was Jane Ruddock or Ruddick. It seems quite probable that John and Jane could have been brother and sister, or perhaps cousins. Edmund died April 16, 1688; Dorothy, May 9, 1686; John, March 28, 1654 (LDS); and Thomas, 1666.

John was a Freeman and in 1644 became a selectman.

There is some question about a first marriage to Joanna, and whether Nathaniel, a child born in England, belonged to Jane or Joanna. In the Confidence he was accompanied by his wife Jane, son Thomas, one year, and sisters, Ursula and Dorothy. Some believe the latter was Dorothy Ruddick, married to John Ruddick, brother of Jane.

Marriage Notes: ||Marriage of Susanna Goodenowe and John Rediat has an
unconfirmed date of 19 Sep 1670 reported by Banvard-The
Goodenows... 1638, quoting Donna Mae Roberts of
Brinklow, Montgomery County, Maryland. This is the same date
given for the birth of a son, John Rediat in Marlboro,
Massachusetts Vital Records. [Rediot, John, s. John and
Susanna, Sept. 19, 1670]
It is possible that both dates are correct if
Susannah was unmarried and named John Rediat as the father
while in labor in the presence of a midwife who reported same.
John, the alleged father, could then have married her on the
spot to avoid criminal prosecution and penalties for such a
crime, i.e., getting an unmarried girl pregnant. No record
has been located charging them with Fornication.

General Notes: John, son of Edmund and Anne Goodnow, was born in Dunhead, Wiltshire, England in 1635, and was brought as an infant to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the ship Confidence in 1638. He was brought up in the town of Sudbury, of which he was a citizen, to the age of 38 before he could take part in the government of the town. He was a farmer, and in 1656 married Mary Axtell. He was made a freeman in 1673, and on March 26, 1677, John Goodnow and others were granted liberty to build a saw mill on upper Hopbrook at a place viewed by a committee of the town, which if they do they are to have 20 tons of timber and earth for the dams.

Information from George Don Max, John Goodenow in Sudbury: A Chronology of Public Service: After detailing 65 acts of community services, concludes, "The public service career of Capt. John Goodenow, from drumming the townspeople Churchward to presiding over the Town Meeting, spanned more than half a century and as years rolled on the positions of public trust and responsibility to which he was elected, or appointed, extended to all parts of town government. Toward the end of his political life, perhaps due to a lengthy illness of his wife ... and because of thoughtless and uncontrollable impulses and desires, he placed himself in a situation that even his peers would not brook. However it happened, his was a record of effective service to his Town."

The above quotation was taken from: Thompson, Roger, Sex in Middlesex, 1986, Univ. of Massachusetts Press, p.171-172.
John was a Puritan and also a Captain in the militia. He is sometimes called John Jr. to distinguish him from the older John, who was his uncle.

Mr. George Don Max of Waterville, ME, a former Sudbury, MA town historian and librarian, provided additional detail as follows: Some years ago I was reading the diaries of the Rev. Mr. Israel Loring. His entry for Aug. 6, 1721 reads; "Dyed Capt. John Goodenow. I was with him on Saturday, the day before he Dyed. Told me then, that he was like a Pelecan in the Wilderness, and an Owl in the Desert. And pray'd that God would humble him down to Hell, but not throw him in there." The reference is a verse from Psalm 102:6, which is a "prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the Lord."
John Goodenow's plaintive plea calls out for the reason for its utterance. I sought the answer in the Sudbury town Records wherein I traced his career of service to the town. Finally the Records revealed a set of circumstances, which still did not resolve the question. In 1699 John Goodenow was elected to the offices of Selectman, Town Clerk, and Assessor; he had filled these positions several times earlier. In 1701 his name does not appear as a holder of a Town Office. In 1702 and 1703 he served as Highway Surveyor and was appointed to a committee to survey and locate a new road; likewise in 1704 he was a committee member to "seat the meeting house." At a town meeting held Feb. 4, 1704, the Town proceeded to elect him Selectman, Town Clerk, and Assessor; a resumption to those positions of power so suddenly interrupted in 1699.
Immediately following his reelection the Town held a Special Meeting on the 31st of March, 1704. The Warrant reads in part: "...Then & There to chuse a Town Clerk & an assessor and a selectman by reason of Capt. John Goodenow Modestly Refuesing in the time of it and dos still continue his Reselution in the Matter for Reasons best known to himself; And allsoe from the advise of our own Respective Justive Brown... and the Town being met chuse John Brigham Selectman, Richard Moore Town Clerk, and Noah Clap Assesser."
From the record and upon reflection it appeared to me that while John Goodenow's public life was seemingly irreproachable, his private condition had to be examined. Subsequently while in Cambridge at the Middlesex County Probate Court searching out Sudbury Wills and Deeds, I decided to look for John Goodenow in the files of the Middlesex Courts. Here was the answer to the mystery of his fall. What I discovered was substantially what Roger Thompson also found and later reported in his fascinating study, Sex in Middlesex; Popular Mores in a Massachusetts County, 1649-1699, published by the Univ. of Massachusetts Press in 1986.
In short, John Goodenow was accused of misuse of power by means of his offices; he was slick at horse trading, drank too much and was brought up before the Church to answer to it; was infrequent at Church and when not there enjoyed the company of Hannah Brooks, the wife of John Brooks, with whom he had carried on an adulterous affair for some years. His offences, both moral and civil, had become a public outrage and an embarrassment to the Town. Accordingly, Mr. Joseph Noyes, and others in town and some outside of it took Capt. Goodenow to Court in May 1699. Here was a situation that even they could not brook! He escaped prosecution by paying Court costs and resigning from his town offices.
His misdeeds and years were heavy upon him for the remaining days of his life. This is why in 1721 at the very door of death he beseeched God to "to humble him down to hell, but not to throw him in there."
(It seems like Capt. John wasn't the only one from the family to stray from the straight and narrow. Mr. Max also included pages from the Sex in Middlesex study listed above and others are mentioned in the following exerpt:)
"It is now widely acknowledged by British demographers and social historians that there was a tendency for sexual misdemeanors to run in families over several generations. Not only did 'every village have its problem family' but there is also persuasive evidence for the 'existence of a sub-society of the bastardly-prone.' This early aspect of what has been termed, not wholly appropriately in this particular area, 'the cycle of deprivation,' has not surprisingly been the monopoly in early modern England of the very poor, the mindless, the unsettled, the vagabonds, and 'masterless men.' Was it representatives of comparable groups in Middlesex who dominated the lists of sexually incontinent or inquisitive youth? Even a cursory examination of the court records reveals the same surnames recurring time and again. Thus, for instance, we find Mary, the daughter of Thomas Goodenow of Sudbury, convicted in April 1657 of fornication with James Ross, a Scottish servant, whom she adamantly refused to marry. In 1672 her sister Jane married Christopher Bannister of neighboring Marlborough, who had been convicted of fornication with Mary Parmenter in 1665, both of whose brothers, John and George, were to be similarly guilty in 1668 and 1679. One of Ross's daughters was punished for fornication in 1692. Returning to the Goodenow clan, Mary's first cousin Hannah was convicted of fornication in 1678, and Hannah's father, Captain John, was forced to resign all offices because of his adultery in 1697. Thus from tracing family connections with one case, we have uncovered three families with multiple offenders."

From Goodenows' Ghosts, Vol. 9, No. 1, p.6; Go Ahead, Knock - A Visit to an Early Goodenow Home, by Cathy Taylor:
Rain dampened the second day of the 1990 Goodenow Family reunion in Sudbury, MA. My husband Bob and I took maps and umbrellas on the independent tour of Goodenow sites in the Sudbury area. When the rain chased us out of the Sudbury Plantation Center burial ground, we drove to another site I remembered from the 1988 reunion: 3 Water Row in Wayland, the original Sudbury.
The brown-shingled saltbox house was built by John Goodinowe in the 1670s, burned by Indians in King Philip's War, and rebuilt in 1676 from the charred timbers. That much the Goodenows knew, but they didn't know the subsequent history of the house or its present owner. The carpool had driven by the house during the 1988 reunion, and I had shot a blurred photograph. Now I wanted a better one.
Tall old trees still blocked the view from the road. My instinct is not to knock on doors when I don't know who's behind them, but Bob has more nerve in such situations. He pulled into the driveway. A woman had just stepped out the door in the rain to gather flowers, and I hailed her.
"Excuse me. I'm a member of the Goodenow family, and we're in town for a reunion. We're exploring sites that have to do with our family. I'd like to know if we can stop and get some pictures ..."
The woman brightened steadily during this. "You're one of the Goodenows?" she burst out. "Wonderful!"
"You've heard about us?"
"Sure. My friend knows a family named Goodenow built her house, but she doesn't know any of them." Donna Streetar Sheridan, as the flower-gatherer introduced herself, invited us inside to meet the owner. We traded nods and followed her.
We set the umbrellas in the vestibule connecting the main house with the garage. It was one of several rambling additions to the original saltbox. Mrs. Sheridan vanished and returned with an elderly woman. She walked slowly, leaning on a cane, but her eyes were lively. We told her why we were interested in the house. "Come on in and I'll tell you what I know," she said imperturbably.
She said her name was Catherine Davis Carter, and her late husband had owned the house for years before her. He had no sure knowledge of its beginnings, but he had thought the house was built in 1670. "In King Philip's War, the Indians shot the husband and set the house on fire," Mrs. Carter continued. "The fire was started in the dining room. The widow went over the river to get help from her relatives. After the fire, she petitioned the general court for help in rebuilding, and they gave it to her. That was between 1685 and 1690."
Of the next 250 years in the life of the house, Mrs. Carter knew little. Her husband and his first wife bought it in the 1930s, soon after the house had been featured in a centennial history celebrating the incorporation of Wayland.
In 1957, Catherine Davis married the widowed owner of 3 Water Row. The age and cumbersome size of the house daunted her at first, but it didn't take her long to decide she liked it after all. The New England saltbox is still comfortable, as she showed us on a tour of the rooms.
Fire-marred beams still hold the ceiling of the keeping room, the central all-purpose room for storage, chores and family life that was the heart of the 17th-century New England house. Corner posts indicate the early date of three of the walls. A fourth was installed in modern times to create a bathroom.
The central chimney provides a fireplace for every room on the first floor. The dining room was once the baking room, and the iron oven door remains next to the hearth. Other massive beams in the baking room are carved with five-digit numbers in archaic style. Were they marked for reinstallation when the house was rebuilt? Mrs. Carter had no idea.
Two doors lead off the baking room - one to the first-floor bedroom or borning room, where mothers gave birth and nursed, and where the infirm often spent long months without medical treatment. The other door leads to an ancient cave-like cellar built of large rounded rocks, its damp floor flooded countless times by the Sudbury River. In the center, beside a modern gas furnace, are two ranks of tall brick arches, where vegetables were once dried and stored for winter.
The steep, narrow stairway winds around the chimney to a master bedroom and a smaller room. An even steeper and narrower stairway crawls into the odd-shaped attic. The ceiling planks of a room below can be seen through a gap in the attic floor.
Mrs. Carter learned about the early uses of the rooms from a Cochituate woman who had a knowledge of early American houses. This woman helped her search for the original deed in Cambridge, but they found nothing. The history of 3 Water Row remains open to further research and documentation.
Feeling her 86 years, Mrs. Carter planned to put the house up for rent and move to The Willows, a retirement home in Westborough, MA in August. Bob and I spent about two hours with her and her friend before leaving for the Goodenow dinner at the Wayside Inn. We had to start back to the Twin Cities the next night, and it hurt to have to miss the Saturday night event. Hal and Betsey Cutler's niece, an historical interpreter, planned to portray 17th-century Anne Goodenow in an after-dinner program.
Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Sheridan were showing avid interest in the Goodenows and their early life in Sudbury. I thought for a long time - could the Goodenows find room for them at the presentation? I took a chance and told them about it. While they enthused, we took pictures inside and out, and swapped addresses and phone numbers.
When I told Donna Sapp about the two friends of the Goodenow home, she invited them to dinner and the presentation. I asked Freddie Mittelstedt to take plenty of pictures. Later, Christine Banvard-Fox wrote me to say how much Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Sheridan enjoyed the dinner and presentation. Some Goodenows had been guests at the old house after brunch on the last day of the reunion. I hoped they would continue the friendship of Catherine Carter and the study of 3 Water Row.

47. Mary Ross 112,120,121,122,123 was born on 25 Dec 1656 in Sudbury, Middlesex, MA.124

General Notes: From Goodenows' Ghosts, Vol. 15, No. 2, p.38: research report by W. David Malcolm, Jr. to determine the identity of Mary's spouse:
According to the Middlesex County, MA record, included in the published Sudbury, MA Vital Records (hereinafter SVR), Mary Ross was born Dec. 25, 1656, daughter of James Ross and Mary Goodenow. (8) Incidentally, Mary Ross's birthdate is also given as 1659; since her parents were married Dec. 5, 1658 (8) after having been earlier charged with fornication, and since the next child was apparently not born until 1660, this may have been an attempt to clean up the record and "legitimize" Mary.
Some sources state that this same Mary Ross married, in 1678 (or 1673), John Gleason. (1,3,7,9) Other sources claim that this Mary Ross married, in 1678 (as his second wife), Joseph Graves. (2,4,6,7) Recently, I spent a week at the New England Historical and Genealogical Society (NEHGS) library trying to resolve this apparent discrepancy.
Again, according to the SVR, John and Mary Gleason were the parents of children born in 1681 and 1688; (8) other sources indicate births in 1684 and 1686 as well. Also, according to the SVR, Joseph and Mary Graves were parents of children born in 1680, 1681 and 1689. (8) Since the children of both marriages were born during the same time period, and since both husbands were presumably alive during the child-bearing years, it seems clear that Mary Ross did not marry these men serially.
Even though both Gleason and Graves sources claim the same birthdate and parents for Mary Ross, might there have been another Mary Ross in Sudbury during the time period in question? A search of the SVR and the Book of Ross produced no such results, with but one exception: Mary Goodenough, who as the wife of James Ross would have been known as Mary Ross. However, this Mary Ross had her last (known) child Daniel with James Ross on Oct. 28, 1681, at the age of 41. (8) She presumably remained married to James Ross until his death on Sept. 18, 1690, (8) following which she signed as "Mary Ross widd". (3) While obviously not the Mary Ross for whom we are searching, her presence in Sudbury during the same time period may have been cause for some confusion.
Thus it would seem that the Mary Ross born in 1656 was the wife of either John Gleason or Joseph Graves; the next step would be to try and determine which. During my week at the NEHG's library, I attempted to find as many sources as possible which would help to make this choice. These, together with my comments, are presented below.
Under Sudbury Marriages in the SVR is: "GLEISON..., Jo[h]n and May Ross, Jan. 15, 1678." (8) Of course, "May" could be a misspelling of "Mary", or a transcription error. In Random Notes from Part II of Sumner C. Powell's Copy of Sudbury, Mass., Records, we find: "...widow Mary Gleason, a daughter of James Ross (and widow of John Gleason), mentioned as see order 17 Dec. 1689." (5) In the Gleason Genealogy, published in 1909: "4. JOHN GLEASON...d. Sudbury, Mass., in 1689; m. in Sudbury, Mass., Jan. 10, 1673, Mary, dau. of James and Mary (Goodnow) Ross, who was born in Sudbury, Mass., Dec. 25, 1656, or 1659." (9)
Ernest E. Fewkes' Book of Ross, consisting of some 14 volumes of typescript, is a carefully compiled work containing biographies or genealogies of any and all Rosses, as well as transcriptions of all applicable town and court records. The copy I used from the NEHGS manuscript collection is comparable in scope and size to the original Torrey New England Marriages manuscript. Under Town Records in the Book of Ross, we find: "Jno Gleison & Mary Ross Jan. 15. 78", (3) presumably the same entry as found in the SVR, but note "Mary" rather than "May", suggesting a transcription error in the SVR. Under County Records, James Ross's Inventory of Estate has: "ffor memorandum Such things formerly given to his children... To his Eldest daughter Glesen 2 stears and a swine 5 - 8 - 0". (3) Finally, under Personal Histories: "1. MARY ROSS...born at Sudbury, Dec. 25, 1656: married John Gleason, at Sudbury, Jan. 15, 1678." (3)
Banvard's Goodenows...1638 A.D. has: "i. Mary ...Born, 25 Dec 1659. She married John Gleison, 15 Jan 1677/8." (1) The source for this is given as Mary Catherine Wyne Whitney, Whitney, Wyne and Allied Families: Genealogical and Biographical, Fort Wayne IN, 1928. (I was unable to find this in the NEHGS library). Lastly, Torrey shows: "GLEISON, John & Mary ROSS; 15 Jan 1678; Sudbury". (7)
Favoring Joseph Graves is Hiram Carleton's State of Vermont, which gives genealogical and family history of "her people in the making of a commonwealth and the founding of a nation". Published in 1903 in four volumes, it appears to contain no references. So far, this is the earliest mention of Mary Ross I've been able to find: "Joseph Graves...his wife died June 5, 1676, and he married in 1678 Mary Ross." (2) Note that this gives Mary's surname as Ross, but does not mention her birthday or parents.
A few years later, Emily Wilder Leavitt presented the Greaves-Graves lines in Starkeys (published in 1910). There are several paragraphs about Joseph Graves, culminating with: "He married (2) in 1678 Mary, daughter of James and Mary (Goodnow) Ross. She was born at Sudbury, December 25, 1656." (6)
Kenneth Vance Graves published Rear Admiral Thomas Graves in 1994, as volume 8 of the Graves Family Genealogies series. His version of Joseph's second marriage: "After his first wife died in 1676, Joseph secondly married Mary Ross, daughter of James Ross and Mary Goodnow, in 1678. She was born 25 Dec. 1656 in Sudbury, Middlesex Co., MA." (4) Several references are given for Joseph's entry: W.S. Heywood, History of Westminster, Mass., 1728-1893, 1893 (contains information about Joseph but nothing on his second wife Mary). Hiram Carleton, Genealogical and Family History of the State of Vermont, Vol. 2, New York, 1903 (see above). John Card Graves, Family of Rear Admiral Thomas Graves of Charlestown, Mass., unpublished manuscript, about 1922. (I was unable to find a copy of this, even among the NEHGS manuscript collection). Also referenced is Mrs. Larry Spurgin of Carlsbad, CA. Through correspondence with her I've learned that Mrs. Spurgin has been trying to solve this dilemma much longer than I have, and while originally subscribing to the Joseph Graves/Mary Ross theory, she now questions it.
Finally, Torrey has: "GRAVES, Joseph & 2/wf Mary [ROSS]; b 1678; Sudbury". (7) The brackets around Mary's surname are significant: "...a surname in brackets is one not derived from a marriage record...". (7) In the Torrey manuscript, only two references are given for this marriage, rather than the dozen or so often found: Starkeys and (I believe) State of Vermont.
In conclusion, the evidence seems to favor John Gleason as Mary Ross's husband, rather than Joseph Graves. Reluctantly, since I am descended from Joseph Graves, I will have to change Joseph's wife in my records from Mary Ross to Mary ?, thus pruning my family tree a bit.
It is interesting to ponder how this discrepancy might have come into being. Perhaps Carleton (or a predecessor) happened upon Mary Ross as being of the right age and in the right place to be Joseph's second wife. The published Vital Records of Sudbury were unavailable, being published the same year as State of Vermont, and it might have been difficult to find the Gleason/Ross marriage in the original records. Over the years, others apparently picked up the same piece of misinformation, and repeated it. It seems that I'm the latest to do so, for on p.73 of the August 1995 issue of Goodenows' Ghosts, under my name is a descendancy chart showing my line from Thomas Goodenow through Mary Ross and Joseph Graves! At least it's presented as needing clarification.
More research is needed; my work so far is preliminary. The challenge now is to find a source for Joseph Graves's second wife, as well as her surname, parents, and birth.

From Goodenows' Ghosts, Vol. 29, No. 1, p.11; information from Cynthia Herrick, prepared ca. 1999:
Thomas Barnes, the first son of Thomas Barnes, was born in 1662. According to History of the Town of Marlborough, Charles Hudson, Press of T.R. Marvin & Son, Boston (1862), p. 92-95, the principal inhabitants of Marlboro in 1686 included Thomas Barnes' son, Thomas, along with John Barnes, Jonathan Johnson, Samuel Goodenow, Abraham Howe, Josiah Howe, and 46 others. Thomas Barnes was married in Marlboro, MA, but moved from there when he received, on Aug. 27, 1691, a grant of a 40-acre home-lot in Brookfield, MA, on the north side of the Country road near the Gilbert Fort, where he built, [and later] sold to John Hamilton.
After Brookfield, MA, was destroyed by Indians, Thomas Barnes was one of the leading men in resettling the place, ca. 1695. In 1699, he bought the Coy estate at the west foot of Foster's hill; he also bought the Parsons' and Kent's home-lots on the hill. Thomas was one of eight men commissioned to build a sawmill in the town of Brookfield - the first in the town. For this, each of the eight men received a grant of 40 acres of land. In all, by grant and purchase, he ultimately held 1,100 acres. Thomas Barnes' assessed property valuation, ca. 1717, was second only to that of the famed Col. John Pynchon. Thomas Barnes' tax rate was 4, 8p; John Pynchon's tax rate was 5, 5s. The next highest assessment, just below that of Thomas Barnes, Jr., was that of John Hamilton, Sr., who had an assessment of 3, 17s, 8p.
Thomas Barnes, Jr., inherited part of the Indian Plantation lands of Marlboro from his father in 1697 and was involved in a title dispute to his land (as were his neighbors) until 1719 when the courts finally recognized the validity of the deed of purchase of these Indian lands obtained by the residents of the plantation area.
His house was the stopping point of the Committee when on duty at Brookfield and expenses were granted to his wife, according to the Committee's Records: "Sept. 17, 1714, granted to Mary, wife of Thomas Barns, 45 acres, for charges and expenses of the Committee from time to time" [History of Brookfield, MA].
Like his father, he was active in community affairs and he was a leading resident of Brookfield. Thomas and his son, Samuel, were chosen town assessors in 1718. Late in life he made his home with another son, Comfort, who lived north of the Ditch Meadow Swamp, near the Jonathan Nye house.
Thomas died April 23, 1734, being fatally gored by a bull.

General Notes: John was a deacon of Rev. Mr. Breck's church.

From Goodenows' Ghosts, Vol. 29, No. 1, p.11; information from Cynthia Herrick, prepared ca. 1999:
John Barnes, the second son of Thomas Barnes, Sr., lived from 1666 to 1752, nearly 86 years. There was more than one John Barnes in the Marlboro area during that time (one of whom appears to be Thomas Barnes, Sr.'s brother).
John Barnes was a deacon of Rev. Mr. Breck's church, First Church (elected Apri117, 1729) [Hudson's History..., p. 285,316].
John Barnes was a member of Samuel Morrill's Garrison at Fort Meadow in the Indian War, 1711-1713 [From the notes of Don Barnes].
It would appear from the many plot plans found amongst the Barnes Family Papers that John Barnes owned quite a bit of land in Marlboro, MA. Much of the land came from the division of the Cow Commons.
The following excerpt comes from Hudson's History..., p.38-39:
Having assigned house lots to the proprietors, and made other grants to individuals, they adopted, at a meeting held on Feb. 10, 1662, the following order, which contains more evidence of their zeal than of their foresight:
"It is ordered that all the lands situate and lying within this town, that are not already granted, from Mr. John Alcocke's line down to Stony Brook, and from thence up the Brook to Crane Meadow, and so along Stirrip Meadow Brook, and to be extended as the Brook runs to Assabeth River, and down the said River till it comes to the Indian Line; and all the lands that were taken south of said Indian Line towards Sudbury, are and shall remain a perpetual Cow Common, for the use of the town, never to be allotted without the consent of all the inhabitants and proprietors thereof at full meeting; excepting fourscore acres of upland within the aforesaid tract of land, to accommodate some such desirable persons withall, as need may require, opportunity present, and the town accept of."
It is exceedingly difficult for the first settlers in any new country, to ascertain the future wants of the inhabitants; and hence provisions looking far into the future are generally unwise. Dispositions of property in perpetuity, generally become sources of embarrassment and contention. So it proved in this case. The increasing wants of the inhabitants and the growing demands for land, showed the propriety, if not the necessity, of dividing the Cow Commons. But it was hardly possible to obtain the consent of every inhabitant and proprietor. Yet the wisdom of the measure became so apparent, that, after a considerable effort, a vote was obtained Feb. 18, 1706, "That the proprietors will divide the Cow Commons." This gave rise to many difficulties, as the vote was not unanimous; and finally a Petition was preferred to the General Court, which, on full consideration of the subject, on the Nov. 1, 1709, "Resolved, that it be recommended to the Inhabitants and Selectmen of Marlborough, to make such improvements to the reserved and common lands of said town, as will be most encouraging and beneficial to the advancement and increase of the plantation."

General Notes: From Goodenows' Ghosts Vol. 17, No. 4, p.79; information from The Affliction of the Joseph Goodenow Family, a research report by Mary Goodno and Terry A. Weisshaar:
Israel Loring, pastor of the First Parish Church in Sudbury, MA from the early to the mid-1700s, kept a Journal; several entries mention members of the Sudbury Goodenow family. (1) In particular, the Reverend Loring describes his visits to the family of Joseph Goodenow (2) and his attempts to lessen their "affliction." This affliction was the illness of Jotham Goodenow (3), son of Joseph and Patience Goodenow [Goodenows...1638 A.D., p.20 #37]. The Reverend Loring's entries are reproduced below in italics [in the Ghosts publication], retaining the original spelling and punctuation from Louise Parkman Thomas's "translation" of his journal, but adding our own comments as footnotes. The different spellings of Goodenow are evident. The first entry describes the death of Joseph's wife, Patience Goodenow.
February 22, 1732 - Died Patience Goodno' the Wife of Joseph Goodeno' of an Apoplexy. (4) She was taken Suddenly on the Lords day morning. A Sudden Death, and a Loud Call to me and Survivours to be always ready. (5)
In November 1732 Joseph remarried - to Ruth Haynes of Sudbury. Ruth Haynes was the daughter of John and Ruth (Ropar) Haynes (see "Descendants of Walter Haynes and Peter Noyes of Sudbury, Mass.," NEHG Register, Vol. 47, Jan. 1893, p.71-78). She was born March 4, 1685/86 and died April 11, 1747.
In the Goodenow book, Joseph Goodenow's marriage to Ruth Haynes is incorrectly attributed to his nephew, Joseph Goodenow (p.33, #81). This cannot be true. Born in 1686, Ruth Haynes would have been too old to have married nephew Joseph (referred to as Joseph, Jr.). Joseph, Jr. was born in 1700 and married Anna Allen in 1730. There is no record of Anna Allen Goodenow's death.
A second discrepancy is that the date of death of Joseph Goodenow, Sr. (1758) is also the date recorded for his nephew, Joseph, Jr. We believe that nephew Joseph died at least a decade later than his uncle since there are many Middlesex County deeds recorded after 1758 with Joseph Goodenow as a grantor. In both Middlesex and Worcester County deeds before 1758, nephew Joseph is referred to as Joseph Goodenow, Jr.
Returning to the Loring entries:
June 7, 1739 - Preach'd at Joseph Goodenow's from Mat. 11.28, (6) His Wife (7) being in a Melancholik Condition, and his Son in a low Condition.
May 22, 1740 - P.M. I was at Joseph Goodeno's and Spent Sometime With Deac: Stone and others praying for that afflicted family. Wou'd bewail my own deadness and Dulness in those Exercises, and Particularly my barrenness of matter in prayer, and Want of apt and fit Expressions. Lord pardon the iniquities of my holy things. May I take more Care for the time to Come in Preparing for Such Meetings; not Clogging my body With overmuch eating, etc. Lord hear prayers for the afflicted family.
December 25, 1741 - Friday. Preached a Sermon at Joseph Goodenough's from Lam. 3.8. (8) The family-Meeting being there, Mr. Woods began with Prayer, and I prayed after preaching. The Lord be praised for assistances Vouchsafed Granted, O Give Success!
June 3, 1743 - Friday Was a Meeting at Joseph Goodno's Upon the account of the distresses that the family Labours Under. I Began with prayer, and then preached from James 1.2,3,4, (9) My bretheren Count it all Joy, when ye fall into Divers Temptations etc. after Sermon Several of the Bretheren prayed, We Sung the first part of the 40th Psalm and I concluded with giving the blessing.
The "afflictions" finally reached an end on June 9, 1743 when Jotham died.
June 10, 1743 - Yesterday about Sun-rise, Died Jotham Goodeno' and was this day Interred. An Instance of Extraordinary afflictions, had in the first place a fever Which issued in a fever-Sore, the Sad effects of Which he has been Labouring Under thirteen years Last March. A Cough attended him, and he was Continuallly raising filthy putrid Matter, besides it issued out at his breast and he was Exercised with a Sore flux. His Distemper So far influenced his brain, as to deprive him of his reason, in a very great measure for Some years before he Dyed...
The Rest of The Story? - According to a specialist in internal medicine, Jotham Goodenow's "affliction" was tuberculosis or "consumption." This disease is characterized by a long illness, fever, lung problems and, in some cases, a bacterial infection that creates skin disorders of the type described by the Reverend Loring. Joseph and Patience had five other children; their sons, Lt. Daniel Goodenow and Peter Goodenow, both named a son Jotham. Jotham's oldest sister, Martha, married Isaac Hunt in 1721. Her grandchildren, sisters Abigail and Martha Hunt, married brothers Benjamin and Calvin Clark, respectively. Benjamin and Calvin were sons of Caleb Clark of Sudbury and younger brothers of Phebe Clark, wife of William Goodenow and 5th-great-grandmother of Mary Goodno Weisshaar. ...that's another story for another time.

General Notes: From Brian Pendleton and His Descendants, 1599-1910:
Caleb Pendleton, the youngest son of Capt. James and Hannah (Goodenow) Pendleton, was born at Portsmouth, NH, 8 Aug 1669, and died at Westerly, RI, 19 Mar 1746. He was a farmer and settled upon his father's land at Westerly. On the 26th of Jan. 1703, his brothers and sisters agreed "They having a gift of land given us by our grandfather Bryan Pendleton to be divided amongst us at our father's death, as per deed bearing date 31 Aug 1674; and our brother Caleb having built upon said land we mutually agree for ourselves with full consent of father James, that our brother Caleb shall have his part of land (given us by grandfather Brian Pendleton) where he now is." This instrument was signed by Joseph Pendleton, Edmund Pendleton, Eleanor Pendleton, Dorothy Pendleton, Eleazor and Anna Brown, Patience Pendleton and Mary Pendleton (the last two being the wives of Joseph and Edmund, respectively), and is recorded in the Westerly Land Evidences. On the 11th of April 1711, Caleb received a confirmation of this agreement, the deed being signed by Edmund Pendleton, William Walker, Eleazor Brown, Nicholas Cottrell, Anna Brown, "Eliner" Walker, "Dorithy" Cottrell. ..."We the proprietors of sd tract of land have . . . Devided sd tract of land into Seven Parts except one Part that Mr. George Lamphear Hath fenct." (W.L.E., iii, 135.) On the 3rd of June, 1733, Caleb Pendleton of Westerly, RI, signed off to James "Brettan" (Britton) of Bristol [County ?], MA, all his right in the estate of his grandfather, late of Saco, ME, and of his father, James Pendleton, late of Westerly. This deed was signed by Caleb's wife Elizabeth (Rockingham County, NH, Deeds, xx, 228). At a meeting of the Town Council of Westerly, 7 Oct 1699, it was ordered that Caleb Pendleton, Constable, "Doe warne Samuel Younglove and his wife, and Thomas Jossling and Mary Randall to departe out of our towne." It is a coincidence that while ... Caleb his descendants. This will (dated 1732) names a daughter Hannah, the full list of children coming in the following order: Jonathan, Eleazer, Anna, Mary, Patience, Abigail, Ruth, Hannah, Daniel and James. The son Daniel is not otherwhere referred to in this genealogy, nor is he included in the list of Eleazer's children given in the History of Stonington." This work also notes the marriage of Eleazer's daughter Hannah to William Wilcox, and states further that he married Elizabeth Brown as his second wife 5 Jun 1727. Is it not possible that Eleazer Brown was married twice and by his second wife had a son Daniel and a daughter Hannah, named after her deceased half-sister? ?June, 1712, in Brown Gen., p. 13. evicted one Mary Randall from Westerly his son, Caleb, Jr., married another one years later. On the 3rd of March, 1707-8, Caleb Pendleton was chosen "pettit juryman for to attend the Corte of Trials to be held for the Collony att the Collony Hous att Newport the last Tusday in this instant month." He was active in town affairs and repeatedly held office between 1698 and 1720, becoming Town Councilman in the latter year. Caleb was admitted to the church at Stonington, 18 Feb 1693, and was baptized with his two oldest children the following 23rd of July. (Records of First Congregational Church, Stonington, CT.) His wife's name was Elizabeth. We lack record of his marriage but Charles H. Pendleton of Westerly thinks she was a sister of George Lanphere, who had fenced part of James Pendleton's land. Caleb's children, as given in the baptismal records of the Stonington church, and as named in his Will were: James, bapt. 23 Jul 1693; m. (1), Elizabeth Lanphere; (2), Elizabeth Brown. Sarah, bapt. 23 Jul 1693; m. Seth Lanphere. Hannah, bapt. 7 Jul 1695. She probably died young as she is not mentioned in her father's Will, and in the Will of her grandfather, James Pendleton; her sister, Elizabeth, is named as Caleb's second daughter, which could not have been so considered if Hannah were living and the children were baptized in the order of their birth as is presumable. Caleb, Jr., bapt. 6 Jun 1697; m. Mary Randall. Elizabeth, bapt. 25 Jun 1699; m. Jonathan Brown. Brian, bapt. 15 Jun 1701; m. Anna Wilcox. Anna (Anne), bapt. 22 Aug 1703; m. Samuel Babcock. Read, m. John Saunders, Jr. Susannah, m. Stephen Wilcox. Ruth, m. (1), Benoni Smith; (2), Benj. Wilbur. While these children are not recorded upon the Westerly records they were all born in that town without much doubt as their father was a resident there from a very early age until his death. The descendants of Caleb Pendleton are very numerous and many of them have been difficult to trace. He was the ancestor of a restless race of pioneers who, always hungry for new lands, sought out the frontiers of civilization and often made the frontiers themselves.
