THE MAIN(e) STREAM (reprint, edited)

We are grateful to Ms. E. Stager, Luverne, Minn. for the work she did on the following:


This story really starts with our Daniel Goodwin's great grandfather, Stephen Woodgate of East Bergholt, Suffolk County, England, clothier. He died in 1598, after a long and productive life. He married first Kathryn Whiter, widow. Her maiden name is not given. By her he had three daughters, Elizabeth, Kathryn, and Ane. She died and he married second Mary Derehaw or Deraugh. By her he had four sons and probably two daughters. The sons were Steven, Thomas, Benjamin, Daniel, and John and a daughter Hanna and one other mentioned rather casually. Then his second wife Mary died and, according to one of his sons, he "lived many years unmarried".

Steven Woodgate's eldest daughter, Elizabeth, married John Goodwin, also a clothier. John Goodwin was a well respected man and a "go-getter". Many neighbors, relatives, and friends trusted him enough to leave the estates destined for minor children in his care, and he was named administrator and supervisor for a number of wills, including the estate of his father-in-law, Steven Woodgate. Elizabeth, his wife, died a year or so before her father, probably in 1597 and John survived her for only a few years, dying in 1600. We do not know how old they were when they died but probably not much older than 40 or 45. They had three children: John, Daniel, and Mary. This Daniel was our immigrant Daniel's father. None of the three children were "of age" at the time of John's death.

This is where the story really gets interesting because these three children of John and Elizabeth (Woodgate) Goodwin were, so to speak, "products" of really extended families, brought up in families where they had step sisters and brothers, half sisters and brothers as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins. The oldest of the three children, John, probably was nearly 21 at the time of his father's death and was left in the custody of a friend, Isaac Mitchell, to be brought up "in the trade or mystery of a clothier".

Daniel was given into the custody of William Holloway and his wife Elizabeth, a very interesting family. Elizabeth's maiden name was Lincoln, alias Skynner, and her marriage to William Holloway was her second marriage, she having been previously married to Geo. Hewburd (who died in 1598) by whom she had one son, William. It was William Holloway's second marriage, too, and he had four daughters before he married Elizabeth and had one son by her in 1604. So Daniel was brought up by a foster father who had one step-son and a foster mother who had two sons (the second by William Holloway) and four step-daughters. Then in 1608 William Holloway died, leaving Elizabeth with two sons who were half brothers and four girls who were one of her sons half sisters and her other son's step sisters, plus Daniel, a foster child.

It is not surprising to find Elizabeth (Lincon-Skynner) Hewburd, Holloway marrying for a third time, nor is it surprising, I suppose, that her third husband was John Goodwin, Daniel's brother, who thereupon became his foster- father, for Daniel in 1608 was still not of age.

John and Daniel's sister Mary, likewise, had some interesting family connections. She was committed into the custody of Robert Alefounder for her bringing up. The Alefounders were related by marriage to the Woodgates, the Holloways, and the Chapmans, alias Barkers, as well as the Lincon, alias Skynners. All of these families lived in East Bergholt or its environs, all were clothiers by occupation and all were close friends; they seem also to have been all very well-to-do, owning large amounts of property and controlling of large amounts of money.

We can only guess at the ages of birth and marriage of John, Daniel, and Mary Goodwin. John was probably born before 1585, Daniel around 1590, and Mary shortly after 1590. John married Elizabeth Holloway after 1608, Daniel married Dorothy Chapman, alias Barker, around 1615 and Mary married Dorothy's brother, Thomas Barker, shortly thereafter. Of their death dates we are sure because of their Wills. John died in 1638, Daniel in 1625 and Mary between 1639 and 1643 (the date of her husband's Will, at which time he had another wife).

Daniel, the father of our immigrant ancestor Daniel, died young - probably around the age of 35. He is called "gentleman" in his will and there is no indication that he was a clothier. He and his wife had three children: Edmund, the oldest son, probably named after Dorothy's father, Edmund Chapman, alias Barker; Daniel named after his father as well as his uncle Daniel Woodgate; and Stephen the youngest son, named after his great grandfather Steven Woodgate.

Daniel's will was short and left to the administration of his brother John and his father-in-law Edmund Chapman alias Barker. We assume the three sons were brought up by their mother, Dorothy. All three were mentioned in the will of their grandmother Marrion Barker who died in 1635. By that time their mother had been remarried to Edward Yeardly, and had three children by him, one son Edward Yeardly and two daughters.

Of our immigrant ancestor's later relatives we learn very little from the wills. His brother Edmund died in 1645, leaving a wife Margaret, a son Edmund and a son Daniel and a daughter Mary. None of the children had reached their majority. His half brother, Edward Yeardly, was still living in 1676 and inherited under the will of Sir Edmund Barker, the son of our Daniel's Aunt Mary. His Aunt Mary who married Thomas Barker was a double aunt, the sister of his father and the sister-in-law of his mother.

She and her husband had children: Thomas, Edmund (the Sir Edmund Barker mentioned above), Elizabeth, John, and William, all of whom were our Daniel's cousins, all of whom were born before 1635 and mentioned in their grand- mother's will. Our Daniel also had uncles William, Thomas, and George Barker, and an aunt, Thomazyne Harmon on his mother's side.
Of Daniel's brother Steven, we know only that he was mentioned as a grandchild (together with Edmund and Daniel) in Marrion Barker's will of 1635 when he bequeathed to his nephews Edmund and Daniel. We can perhaps assume that he died between 1635 and 1638. None of these early Goodwins seem to have lived to a "ripe old age".

Starting with this issue [sounds like there were identity concerns in 1981] we are starting a new manner of handling queries. In order that all the readers may share in the information given in answers to queries we will assign each query a number and will not print the name and address of person submitting the query.

[NOTE: The original documents did NOT include the sender's names; it is no longer possible to correspond with the various authors. These queries are for informative purposes only - Ed.]

Do any of our readers know of an ABBOTT or DRISCOLL family organization?

Searching for the father of Jane Goodwin, born in Michigan in late 1830's and her siblings, Wilson S. Goodwin b. 1841, Monroe Co., Michigan, Scott W. b. 1848, Joseph and Mollie A. Goodwin born 1858. Their mother was Amanda Goodwin born 1808 in New York.

I would like to find information on John Goodwin b. in Mass. The 1850 census recorded him as 39 yrs old and the 1860 census recorded him as 63 (?) so it's hard to know for sure. The 1870 census doesn't mention him!
John's wife Mary Ann b. in 1811 in Maine (where?). I wonder if she was a Noble(?) Children were:

1. Armanda Issadore b. 26 Oct. 1835/36 in Mt. Vernon, Kennebec County

2. Levi or Leni A. b. 1837 (1850 Census)

3. Charles D. (DeWolf ?) Goodwin b. 1839 according to 1850 census.

4. Olive F or I b. 1841; 1850 census

5. Lorinda b. 1853; 1860 census.

I am still hunting the parents of John Goodwine b. ca. 1740 - d. ca 1832 md. Martha Heady (Hayden) b. ca. 1749, their daughter Rebecca Goodwin b. 15 Oct. 1783 in Pa. md. Ruben Slavens 21 Mar. 1807.

Seeking my grandmother Goodwin's line. I have sketchy information about a Daniel Goodwin of Lower Argyle who went to sea out of Barrington, Nova Scotia. He married in 1824 Elizabeth, daughter of Gamaliel Kenney and had two sons: Lorenzo and Isaac. This Daniel was also a schoolteacher.
Source: A History of Barrington Township and Vicinity - 1604-1870 by the Rev. Edwin Crowell, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia mentions also Thomas and Nicholas Goodwin who came from England and settled in Shelburne and Argyle.

Seek all persons with the surname, Clinkard, or their descendants. Mary (Goodwin) m. Martin Luther Clinkard, an immigrant from Prussia, in early 1800's, and lived in Chelsea, Mass. He was a rigger in Boston. She had six known children.

Mr. S. THOMES, Gulf Breeze, Fla. has compiled a most interesting and beautifully illustrated record of the THOMES family. The title is Descendants of Thomas THOMES (1799-1859) of Castine. Maine. He doesn't have any for sale but has donated copies to the Scientific Society in Castine, Me., the State Library in Augusta, Me., and the Belfast Public Library.
We mention this because there were several marriages of Goodwins to THOMES in Buxton, Me. Some of these were: Edward GOODWIN of Buxton m. Cassandira THOMES of Westbrook 10 Sept. 1848
Miss Fraces GOODWIN of Buxton m. William H. THOMES of Westbrook 27 June 1854 These and many other GOODWIN vital records are on Film # 859053 from the Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. See the Records of the Church of Christ, Buxton, Maine, during the pastorate of the Rev. Paul COFFIN, D.D.
Cryus WOODMAN, grandson of Dr. COFFIN and native of Buxton, Maine had these records printed to preserve them. Those of you who have seen a copy of the 1868 issue of The Historical Magizine may remember that it was he who presented a copy of it to Daniel Raynes GOODWIN.


The following is a helpful quote from a letter by Evelyn STAGER who submitted the article Part of The English Ancestry of Daniel Goodwin, Immigrant for this issue;
For quite a while I was confused by the "alias" names I found in the wills. There were CHAPMAN, alias BARKER and LINCON alias SKINNER, as well as plain BARKER and plain SKINNER. Then I came across P.H. RENEY's book "The Origin of English Surnames", copyrighted in 1967, which states that English surnames were not really standardized as early as one would think and that "alias" was frequently used as a descriptive phrase, sometimes denoting occupation, to distinquish for example one family of LINCOLNs who were skinners - from other LINCOLN families in the same area. Some of these families may have taken the name LINCOLN and others the name SKINNER, so in searching further one should look into the possibility that some of Daniel GOODWIN'S relatives on his mother's side gone by the name CHAPMAN.


I was very happy to read in the Spring 1981 issue of the MOCA, the newsletter of the Maine Old Cemetery Association, that the members of the South Berwick/Rollinsford Lions voted in Sept. to form a clean-up detail to attack the Old Fields Burying Ground in South Berwick. This cemetery has burials as far back as the early 1700's and one of the people buried there is Mehitable (Hitty) PLAISTED GOODWIN, wife of Thomas GOODWIN, who was taken prisoner by Indians and held captive in Canada for five years before she was ransomed back.
The Lions have accepted custodial care of this cemetery, and in the spring of 1981 a project of preservation and repair to needy gravestones will begin. Members who attend the reunion should make it a point to visit this historic cemetery.


Shaking the Family Tree; the Records of Portland's Eastern Cemetery by William B. JORDAN, Jr. of Portland who is an active member of the Maine Old Cemetery Association is a most informative recent book on records of this cemetery. Mr. Jordan's findings are based largely on the 1890 survey, made by City Engineer William A. GOODWIN, together with information gleaned from many less formal compilations, many in manuscripts. These sources are supplemented by his own updating of interments since 1890 to 1980.
The two most recent issues of the Quarterly, published by the Maine Historical Society, Spring and Summer 1980, provide the alphabetical listing of interments ABBOTT through KNOX. Subsequent issues will complete the listing of more than 4,100 names of those buried at Eastern, together with their death dates, ages, and known relationships.
Our thanks go to Mr. C. JONES, East Machias, Me. for this information.

The Governor Goodwin Mansion, c. 1811, located in Strawberry Banke, Portsmouth.

Ichabod Goodwin, Governor of New Hampshire from 1859 to 1861, lived in this imposing house with his family for 50 years. One of the state's most prominent citizens for half a century, he was connected with nearly every important business and civic activity in the city.
He arranged the financing of the first New Hampshire troops to serve in the Civil War. His daughter was married to Admiral George Dewey. While architecturally the house retains numerous Federal period features, it bears traces of the Governor's occupancy. The furnishings are Victorian and many belonged to the Goodwin family. Doors close at 4:45PM

The DILLS family hold open house for the LEBANON HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Lebanon Historical Society was recently invited to an Open House at the home of Joan and Bob Dill on West Lebanon Road.
Forty members and friends enjoyed a tour of the house, which the Dills have decorated. Marjory Goodwin and Marion Stanley of Milton were special guests.
This was the home in which the Goodwin family lived for five generations. The original house was built in the late 1700s across the road from where it is now located. It was moved to its present site and raised to build a new first floor in the early 1800s.
A slide show was given by Ginny Stackpole showing the house from the 1800s to present. One noticeable change through the years was the loss of open fields. The Dills served refreshments and punch.

Portsmouth Herald (N.H.) Fri. 16 May 1980; "Goodwin Named Senior Citizen of Year"

Harry Goodwin, 93, was named Senior Citizen of the Year by the Community Council of Senior Citizens last week at the Older American's Luncheon at Yoken's.
While Goodwin was severely injured in an automobile accident 40 years ago and must use two canes to stand, he doesn't let his disability keep him from leading an active life.
A member of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, he teaches several times a week at St. Patrick's School and regularly visits the Kittery Convalescent Home.
An author, Goodwin is working on another book. During the summer, he attends various colleges through the Elder Hostel Program. Goodwin lives in Kittery with his daughter, Elizabeth Cormier, and her husband.
Sending letters of congratulation were Gov. Hugh Gallen, U. S. Congressman Norman D'Amours, the Elder Hostel Program directors for New England and Vermont's Bennington College, and the Kittery Convalescent Home. Sixteen organizations were invited to participate in naming the Senior Citizen of the Year.
