Matthew Gough is the first person by this name to appear in Virginia. Little is known of him, though he appears to have held a position of some stature in the colony. Matthew arrived by 1639 and settled on a tract named "Warwick" in Henrico County, Virginia and served in the House of Burgess, Grand Assembly from 1642 to 1644 for Henrico County. Hotten's list of emigrants to Virginia show transport for a Matthew Gowgh, age 28 years aboard the "Constance" and a Matthew Gough, age 22 years transported on the ship "Safety".
