Query Answer V-13

Stephen GOODWIN: I suspect he and Daniel went to Virginia in 1635. (Editor's note: 0n p.734 of Passenger and Immigration Lists Index edited by William Filby with Mary K. Meyer Vol. 1, Daniell GOODWIN n.a. Va. 1638 and on p. 735 Stephen GOODWIN n.a. Va. 1635. Their source reference was Early Virginia Immigrants 1623-1666 Pub. Richmond, Va. W.C. Hill Printing Co. 1912, Reprint Baltimore Genealogical Pub. Co. Inc. 1960.) They are listed as head rights for a mariner William BARKER (they had an uncle by that name) See Cavaliers and Pioneers by Nugent reprinted by Gen. Pub. Co. Baltimore, pages 35 and 100. What I don't know yet is how they got from Virginia to New England. I think they may have gone in the spring of 1644 when Daniel GOOKIN (no relation,) was kicked out because of the work of Rev. Wm. TOMPSON a missionary from Mass. (This man is also an ancestor of that branch of the Goodwin family that moved to North Berwick.) Samuel GOODWIN married Anna Tompson GERRISH. John S. GOODWIN lists Stephen in Salem in l664 but no source record and I have not seen any other. Other oral history says Charlestown. I have checked and cannot find any confirmation. Any Information from about 1644 to 1652 "near Plymouth" Mass. of course would be appreciated.

Query Answer V-14

Lucy (Morgan) GOODWIN: See p. 230 Suffolk Manorial Families by J.J. MUSKETT. She was the mother of James Junius GOODWIN who commissioned The Goodwins of Hartford. Conn. The NEHGR article seems to put the connection through the Morgan side; I have read but do not follow it. The Goodwin family that Lucy married is not our Goodwin family although they may have known each other in England. They were from Blocking (?) Braintree, west of East Bergholt. Starr and Waters and others did lots of work for J.J. GOODWIN and that is why we feel that "our" Daniel came from Yoxford, his father Daniel buried there in 1625 and grand-father, John, of East Bergholt. James J. GOODWIN married Josephine Sara LIPPINCOTT. My mother, Alice H. HAPGOOD, was a companion to Cousin Sara before Mother got married in 1919. The Morgan family, incidentally, is the same as the J.P. M0RGAN of financial fame. Among other things they originally ran a tavern in Hartford and a stagecoach to Albany, NY. My Mother's mother was Mary Morgan SMITH of Hartford, Conn.

Dear Mrs. Sharp,
Flagon and Trencher: Descendants of Colonial Tavern Keepers was founded by Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr. and myself late in 1963. The purposes of F&T are: "Collecting and disseminating among its members, and eventually to others, information concerning taverns, their keepers, recipes, customs, & c; Building a body of genealogical records showing descent from tavern-keeping ancestors; Creating for members through dinner meetings and other means the spirit of good fellowship and friendship inherent in these purposes." We also teach that the Taverner was respected, and frequently appointed by public officials. Membership is limited to those who can prove direct descent from a person who conducted a tavern/inn/ordinary/ house of public entertainment, or other type of hostelry prior to 4 July 1776.
We have one dinner meeting a year, but the membership has grown so large (over 500 active members) that states and regions are going to be permitted to hold their own dinners, hopefully with colonial dishes and talks about colonial inns, customs, $ c. For the rest of this year, life membership is $20.00, which includes a membership certificate and a bronze clasp or pendent. (Next year, the application fee will be raised, when we start paying a genealogist to examine applications; I have never taken any compensation.)
Everything about F&T is simple, unpretentious: no black tie, no ribbons or medals, no ceremony. That's about it.

Sincerely Yours,
Kenn Stryker-Rodda
Keeper of the Tavern Records.

Shourds: History Genealogy of Fenwick's Colony (1876; Reprinted 1976 by Gen. Pub. Co., Baltimore.)

The following was printed with permission (1983) from the Gen. Pub. Co. Baltimore, MD.

John GOODWIN was the son of John and Catharine GOODWIN, of the parish of St. Buttolph, in Algate, London. He was born 25th of 10th month, 1680, and emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1701. From thence, the following year, he removed to Salem, and in 1705 he married Susannah SMITH, the oldest daughter of John SMITH, of Smithfield; they had four children - John, Mary, Thomas and William GOODWIN; the two oldest died young.

1. Thomas GOODWIN was born in 1721, and married Sarah MORRIS, the daughter of Lewis MORRIS, of Elsinborough, in the year 1743. Thomas and his wife lived on her property that she inherited from her father in Elsinborough until 1656, when they sold it to Samuel ABBOTT, and purchased the property in the town of Salem of John MASON. The said property was located on Broadway Street, and in the spring of 1757 they removed to Salem. In the 10th month, 1765, Sarah GOODWIN, wife of Thomas GOODWIN, died, aged forty-one years, leaving no children. Thomas GOODWIN'S second wife was Sarah SMITH who lived but a few years after her marriage, and departed this life in the year 1783. Thomas remained single for twenty years, and in 1803 he died, aged nearly eighty-two years, leaving his estate to his great nephews and nieces.

2. William GOODWIN, the youngest son of John and Susannah GOODWIN, was born in 1723, and in 1744 he married Mary MORRIS, second daughter of Lewis MORRIS; they lived in Elsinborough on her share of her father's estate; they had five children - John, Lewis, Susannah, Mary and William GOODWIN.

* John GOODWIN, their oldest son, was born in 1745, and in the year 1772 he married Sarah HALL, daughter of Clement and Margaret HALL. It was one of the first marriages that took place at the present Friends' meeting house in Salem. John GOODWIN'S wife lived but a short time after they were married, leaving no children. Mary GOODWIN, the mother of John GOODWIN, died in 1776, and consequently the property belonged to him after his father's death. John did survive his mother a few years, making a will and leaving his right of the real estate to his nephew, William GOODWIN, the son of Lewis GOODWIN.

* Lewis GOODWIN, the second son of William and Mary GOODWIN, married Rebecca ZANES, of Salem, daughter of Susan ZANES; they had two children - John and Susan GOODWIN.

John married Abigail CARPENTER and had three children - Lewis, William, and Thomas GOODWIN. Lewis GOODWIN'S second wife was Rachel NICHOLSON, the daughter of William NICHOLSON, of Mannington, and they had three children - William, Thomas and Morris GOODWIN.

William, the oldest son, married Huldah TOWNSEND, daughter of Daniel TOWNSEND, of Cape May.

Thomas GOODWIN married Sarah JEFFERIS, daughter of Joshua JEFFERIS.

Morris GOODWIN married Sarah SMITH.

* Susannah GOODWIN, oldest daughter of William and Mary GOODWIN, was born in 1750, and in 1773 she married John MASON. He was a widower when he married Susannah GOODWIN; his first wife was Ann HALL, daughter of William HAIL, Jr. They lived and owned on Broadway Street in Salem, which property is now owned by Morris HALL. John MASON and Ann his 1st wife had one daughter named Sarah, and she married Edgar BROWN. John MASON and his wife Susannah had six children - William, Mary, Ann, Thomas, Elizabeth and John G. MASON.
  1. Their oldest son William, died in 1776.
  2. Mary MASON married Abner BEESLEY and had four children - Mary, William, Benjamin and Thomas BEESLEY. Her second husband was Job WARE, who had two children - Job and Elijah WARE.
  3. Ann MASON was born in 1778, and married Joseph THOMPSON, son of Joshua THOMPSON; they had four children - Susan, the oldest married Joseph PANCOAST; Elizabeth, the second daughter died in her fifteenth year; Sarah THOMPSON married Thomas SHOURDS; Ann THOMPSON married Thomas FOGG.
  4. Thomas MASON, their second son, was born 1780. About the year 1812 he married Hannah HANCOCK, daughter of Joseph HANCOCK; he and his wife lived but a short time after they were married, leaving one child - Hannah MASON, and she married Richard M. ACTON.
  5. Elizabeth MASON was born in 1782, and she died single in the twenty-fourth year of her life.
  6. John Goodwin MASON was born in 1785; he never married, and died in 1839 in the fifty-fifth year of his life. John MASON, their father, died about 1787; his widow, Susannah MASON, married Joshua THOMPSON and had two children - William and Joshua THOMPSON.
* William GOODWIN Jr., was born in 1758, and married Elizabeth WOODNUTT, of Mannington; he and his wife had six children: 1. Prudence, the oldest, married Atkinson Conrad. 2. Mary GOODWIN married Jonathan WOODNUTT. 3. Rachel GOODWIN married Preston C. WOODNUTT. 4. Sarah GOODWIN married Henry DENNIS, her second husband was Jonathan WOODNUTT. 5&6 Elizabeth and Abigail GOODWIN always remained single; they were remarkable for their kind and sympathetic feelings, always willing to assist the poor and afflicted, going and looking after them in the abodes of poverty, and administering to their wants as far as their circumstances would allow; they continued in their noble deeds of philanthropy until old age and as long as bodily strength permitted them to do it.

THE INDEPENDENT Salmon Falls, N.H. 1916

The ninth annual reunion of the descendants of Daniel GOODWIN, who settled in Kittery in 1652, was held at Quamphegan Park, South Berwick, Me., last Thursday, August 31. Owing to various reasons, the attendance was not as large as usual, about sixty-five being present.
The business meeting was called at 11:30 a.m., the President Roy C. GOODWIN of South Berwick, presiding. Prayer was offered by Rev. Bernard Copping, pastor of the Congregational church in Salmon Falls. The report of the executive committee was made by Mrs. Henrietta W. GOODWIN of Dover, after which the President appointed a committee of three - Charles PLUMER, of Rollinsford, Mrs. J. J. GOODWIN of Portsmouth, and Miss H. Blanche GOODWIN of Dover, to nominate officers for the ensuing year.
The meeting then adjourned for dinner, which was served in the dining hall by Mr. and Mrs. Frank E. SWASEY and assistants.
At two p.m. the business meeting resumed, and reports of the secretary, treasure, and auditor were read and accepted. Mrs. J.J. GOODWIN made a report for the committee on the GOODWIN coat-of-arms, and it was voted to continue that committee for another year, hoping they may ascertain the English origin of the family, accurately, and thus be enabled to find the coat-of-arms belonging to Daniel GOODWIN, the emigrant.
Miss Sarah B. GOODWIN of Newburyport, Mass. read the names of seven persons connected with the family whose deaths had occurred since the last meeting: Miss Sarah Elizabeth GOODWIN, Mrs. William A.H. GOODWIN, and Mrs. Sarah S. RAITT of South Berwick, Daniel GOODWIN and John SHAPLEIGH of Eliot, Mrs. Lizzie Raitt LEAVITT of York and Mrs. Alice Jane GOODWIN of South Eliot.

The report of the nominating committee was read and it was accepted, the following officers being elected:
A very entertaining program was given consisting of piano and mandolin duets by Misses Annie WILLIAMS and Marian GRASON of South Berwick; a song by Miss WILLIAMS; a vocal duet by Misses Eva LAMBERT of Kittery and Evelyn GOODWIN of York and recitations by Mrs. Annie W. Baer of Rollinsford. Mrs. BAER's part of the program was especially good, both selections receiving encores. An art exhibition and victrola selections completed the program.
Those attending were:
EDITOR'S NOTE [Alice Sharp]
This is the last in a series of reprints of the meetings of the former Daniel GOODWIN association because we don't have any more clippings of the meetings that followed 1916. If anyone has any subsequent records we would be happy to receive them so they could be printed.

My grandfather, Daniel GOODWIN, is listed in this article as one of the seven people connected with the family who had died since the last meeting. See the article on Goodwin Family Bible Records in this issue for his birth on 11 Oct. 1832 and his marriage to Mary A. LORD.

Moses E. GOODWIN, mentioned in an article in this issue, was one of the vice-presidents and a former president.

Mrs. Susan A. RAITT, was the wife of John Fairfield, Raitt Edith was her daughter. Edith's sister, Mabel, md. Edgar Irving GOODWIN. Their Raitt line is thus according to O1d Kittery and Her Families by Stackpole in the section on Raitt genealogy;
In list of these attending was the son of Jeremiah and Hannah Maria (JONES) GOODWIN. Hannah was the 1st wife of Jeremiah; his 2nd was Isabel D. WILSON. Jeremiah was the s/o of Thomas and Sally (PAUL) GOODWIN. Parents of Thomas were Daniel and Sarah (HOBBS) GOODWIN.


Among the names of the unforgotten, will readily be recalled that of Capt. Moses GOODWIN. His life of almost fourscore years was well-filled with the interests and welfare of Eliot.
His home on the Goodwin Road was pleasantly attractive; and he had a wise and thoughtful voice in public affairs and duties.
Eliot was his native town and life-long home. He was born January 29, 1815; and his departure did not occur till March 7, 1893, at the age of seventy-eight years.

The youths of long ago, went early to work and trades. And the choice of Moses was to become a ship-carpenter. It was one of the occupations that attracted attention, and was a pleasant anticipation for the boys.
Moses was apprenticed to Master Samuel BADGER, who had a yard on Badger's Island. We recognize it today as near the Ferry landing in Kittery. At this trade of ship-carpenter, he worked many years and in several yards.

One of these yards was Hanscom Yard, (in Portsmouth) widely known today as the location of the Green Acre Inn, - the summer resort of scores of people who enjoy days by the riverside in Eliot. At Hanscom Yard he was employed in building the ship of historic name and fame, the Nightingale. This boat of renown was built in 1851 by Samuel HANSCOM. It was originally designed to carry Jenny LIND to her Sweden home. Old people will remember that she was the Nightingale of their early years; and the halls of music were crowded to hear the notes that echoed from her marvelous lips and songs. But the Nightingale ship did not carry out its design. It became greatly the reverse; it collected a cargo of African Negroes, designed as slaves. (See page 172, of this issue of Old Eliot.)

Moses GOODWIN received the title of Captain in 1840. He was commissioned by Gov's John FAIRFIELD as Capt'n of Company A, Cavalry, First Division, First Brigade, Maine Militia. From that date he was usually called "Capt. Moses."
He was not only Captain, but he held many Town Offices: He was elected Town Clerk, Selectman, Town Treasurer, and Tax Collector.
He was also elected County Treasurer, and Representative to the Legislature at Augusta.
He married Margaret KENNARD; the children were: Albert, Moses E., Edwin K., Maggie A., Mary Alice.
