About Henry Gooch, Capt.
Lt. Col. Henry Gooch, born 22 Jun 1619, was in Virginia before 1656 when he was appointed Justice of the Peace for York County, on the Governor's Counsel in 1657, Commissioner of York County in 1658 and before 1662 was Sheriff of York Co. He sided with Bacon in Bacon's rebellion of 1676, and at its conclusion, was fined "six thousand pounds of neate porke" and pardoned. He was lucky to escape with his life, as about 23 of Bacon's con-conspirators were hanged. Henry Gooch and his wife Millicent, widow of possibly Robert Kinsey, had a son William. Lt Col Henry Gooch died 15 Jan 1683, age: 63. William Gooch, son of Lt Col Henry Gooch, married Ursula Claiborne, daughter of William Claiborne.
