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

1. Name: The name GOOLD, GOOLDE, GOLD, GOLDE, and GOULD can be traced in England to an early period, the family being of that ancient Normandy stock which was transplanted to English soil with the coming of William the Conqueror.

John Gole or Gold was a crusader of the 13th century. Collinson in History of Amersetshire (2:172) gives the following account of him:

us gave him an estate in Scarborough (by deed still extant) about 1229In the time of Henry III, Ralph de Vallibus, being obliged to send men in the service of the King when he undertook a crusade to the Holy Land, amongst others despatched on

John Gole out of his manor of Scarborough, who went, accordingly, to Jerusalem, and was present at the siege of Damieta (1217) where he fought valiantly; and after his return, as a reward for his merits, this Ralph de Vallib.

The Goulds are descended form this John Gole, granted an estate in the County of Somersetshire for his valor. Various branches of the family figure extensively in the annals of that county, as well as Hertford, Devon, Buckingham, and London.

Some held important offices in the army and navy, others were prominent as merchants, bankers, and members of the learned professions.

In 1235 a branch of the Gould family was seated at Bovington, Hertfordshire, and from the middle of the 15th century the line can be traced without interruption from Thomas Gould of that place, born about 1455, through Richard, whose memorial tablet of brass in the Bovington church contains the following: "Of your charitie pray for the soul of Rychard Gold and Joan his wife, which Ric. deceased ye xxiv day of August in 1531, whose soul Jehu pardon," Thomas, who died in 1547, Richard who died in 1558, and Richard born about 1553 who remove to the parish of Chesham, County Bucks, to the immigrant sons, Zaccheus and Jeremy who came to New England.

THOMAS GOULD, of Bovingdon, in the parish of Hemel Hempsted, and county of Hertford, seems to have been born as early as the year 1455. His last will and testament is dated 1520, August 29, and was admitted to probate Sept. 28, thirty days later. In this will he bequeaths property to his wife Joan, and to seven children, five of whom had not attained the age of legal majority. The eldest two children were sons.

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

Thomas GOULD died 29 Aug 1520 in Bovingdon, Herts, England. He lived in Hemel Hempsted & Hertford County. His will was dated 29 Aug 1520 & proved 28 Sep 1520. At the Archdeacons court of Huntingdon, but now at Peterborough is as follows: In dei noie ame. In the yere of o Lord MCCCCCXX the xxix day of August I Thomas Goold of Bovingten the elder in good myne and hole memory make my testament and last will as in man followeth First I bequeth my sowle to almyghty and to e blissed lady saint Mary and to all the holy copany of Hevyn my body to be buryyd in the church yard of saint Laurence at Bovyngton Itm I bequeth to the high aulter ij Itm to the moder church of Lincoln vj Itm to the rood light xij Itm to o ladys light xij Itm to saint Laurence light xij To saint Lenards light viij Itm to saint Nicholas light viij Itm to the mayntaynyng of the torches vj viij Itm to the gildyng of saint Laurence tabernacle v niks .
