--------------------

The first record of Daniel Goodwin in New England is a grant of land made to him by the town of Kittery in 1652.

Daniel Goodwin was a pioneer, a sergeant in the local frontier force, a constable, a member of the church, a tavern proprietor, and a land owner in the parish of Quamphegan, a part of early Kittery that became Berwick and then South Berwick, Maine. He leaves to descendants eligibility for membership in the Piscataqua Pioneers (whose ancestors must have settled on either bank of the river in colonial days), in Flagon and Trencher, Descendants of Colonial Tavern keepers, and in the Goodwin Family Organization. There are several of his blood in all three.
