MARGARETC3 SPENCER (2. Patience2 William1), born circa 1632, died by 1673 (husband's second marriage); married as his first wife before Mar 1653 (birth of first known child) DANIEL1 GOODWIN, believed to be the Daniel Goodwin born Yoxford, Suffolk, England 1617 (IGI) or 1620 (rickmorgan@mediaone.net; CFAA), died by 16 Mar 1712/3 when his son Thomas took administration of his estate (MPA 2/100, #6985), son of Daniel and Dorothy (Barker) Goodwin. Daniel married second after July 1673 widow SARAH (Sanders) TURBET, daughter of Lt John Saunders of Wells and Cape Porpoise, and widow of Peter1 Turbet.

           Margaret's father, Thomas Spencer, provided very well for her, his eldest daughter, as seen in the following excerpt from YD 2:79:

The deposisun of Nicholasse Hodesden & his wife Aged 40 years & upward. These deponants being sworen saith that about fifteene or sixteene yeares agooe that Thomas Spenseer being att quamphegon at the howes wee then lived in said that he had given the on half of his half part of the mill & Timber thereunto belonging being on quartor part of the mill unto Daniell Goodin for his dafters Portion Nickhollas Hodsden & his wife reploied & said neyhbouer Spenser I wish you well to Consedar what you doe for you had many Children & every on would have a lettell & you cannot give every one such A Portion & he answared & said that shee wase the Eldest dafter & hee had don yt & farther saith not:/ Taken upon oath this 18th day of Aprill 1670

  Daniel was in Kittery by 1652, as he deposed in Aug 1701 that he had been a resident of the upper part of Kittery for fifty years.  If he is the Daniel of Yoxford as suggested above, he could have been the Daniel Goodwin with  brother Stephen who were headrights for land in VA for their uncle William Barker, captain of the ship America.  In 1702 he appears on a list of the original members of the Berwick Church.  While there was an earlier church by 1663, no records survive (Old Kittery Families, 195fl) and there was no official Congregational Church in Berwick before 1702 (Joseph Anderson, personal communication).
           Daniel Goodwin was a keeper of a public house in Kittery for many years.  He was also town commissioner and sergeant, constable for 1662/3 and coroner in 1668.  In 1711, Daniel and second wife Sarah gave a deed to his son Thomas for the homestead in return for maintenance during their natural lives (YD 7:220).
           Daniel's last child, SARAH GOODWIN, was his second wife's child, rather than Margaret's.  This daughter Sarah, born ca 1674, married Berwick 6 Dec 1694 Isaac Barron of Chelmsford MA, a soldier assigned to guard Berwick, and had at least four daughters recorded in Chelmsford, surname Barron: 1. Sarah, b 29 Sep 1695  2. Mary b 11 Sep 1698  3.  Elizabeth b 9 Sep 1700  4. Hannah b 14 Oct 1703.
