    Children, born in Hingham, Massachusetts Bay Colony:

    John Gould, born 28 July 1646, and baptized in Boston 30 Aug. 1646, age 33 days; married Mary Crossman.

    Joseph Gould, born 11 March 16[48/]49, and baptized in Boston 25 March 1649, age 14 days; no further record; may have died young.

    Stackpole, in his sketch of the Goold family in Old Kittery (page 461), may have been the first to state in print that the John Gould who settled in Taunton by the early 1670s was the son of “Jarvice Gold,” a cordwainer, from Co. Kent, England, who came to Hingham, Massachusetts [Bay Colony], in 1635 and then moved to Boston, where he died 27 May 1656, aged 51. His wife, Mary, outlived him.GEGW 18.8

    On 6 April 1635, “Gervase Gold,” age 30, a servant of Clement Bate/Bates, was enrolled in London as a passenger to sail for New England aboard the Elizabeth (Enclosure 1-35 30The passenger emigration records were originally published in early volumes The New England Historical and Genealogical Register. In 1987, the Genealogical Publishing Company of Baltimore published Peter Wilson Coldham’s The Complete Book of Emigrants 1607—1660, in which the same lists were again included (Enclosure 1-36). Mr. Coldham, however, while he “surveyed many sources not used by Hotten,” “gathered all entries for a given ship, and omitted the day-by-day groupings of arrivals at dockside” (Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England 1634—1635, 3 vols. to date [Boston: The New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1999—], 1:xxx).). That Jarvis was from the English county of Kent is likely, since Clement Bate was baptized there in the parish of Lydd in 1595, as was Clement’s brother James Bate in 1582, also a passenger on the Elizabeth. Not documented is that Gould was from this same parish, and indeed he could have hooked up with the Bates family in the Parish of Biddenden, where Clement had children in the years just prior to emigration (Robert Charles Anderson and others, The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England 1634—1635, 3 vols. to date [Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1999-], 1:195—200).GEGW 19.1

    Clement Bate settled in Hingham in Massachusetts Bay Colony, where a year after arrival Jarvis Goold was granted a lot for a home by the town, which he later sold (Enclosures 1-37 and 1-38). By wife, Mary, Jarvis had two sons, the baptisms of whom were recorded in the First Church of Boston in 1646 and 1649, with the father designated a member of the church of Hingham (Enclosures 1-26 and 1-37). Jarvis died in Boston in 1656 (Enclosure 1-26 31Early Boston vital records were first published in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register.), intestate—without a will—but the inventory of his estate reveals he was a shoemaker (Enclosure 1-39).GEGW 19.2

    What became of the widow of Jarvis Goold was not determined for this report.GEGW 19.3
