About Hannah Gookin

From Tyng Family

3.  Hannah Tyng (Edward2, ___1); b. 7 Mar 1639/40 at Boston, MA; baptized 6 Sep 1640; d. 28 Oct 1688 at Cambridge, MA, at age 48; d. 29 Oct 1688 at age 48.


  1. Capt. Habijah Savage, son of Maj. Thomas Savage and Faith Hutchinson, 8 May 1661 at Boston, MA; 1st husband;
  2. m. Gen. Daniel Gookin, son of Daniel Gookin and Mary Byrd, before 1685; 2nd husband, 3rd wife;


The "Hannah Tyng" who was born in Boston, England, came to Virginia on the "Sea Flower", and married Capt. Thomas Savage is as fictional as "Lady Grace O'Neill", and with less excuse.

There are no records of ANY Tyngs in early Virginia at all - but there are plenty in Massachusetts. A Hannah Tyng was born in the Boston colony in 1640, to Edward Tyng and Mary Sears, and was married twice - first to Habijah Savage, son of Major Thomas Savage, and after 1669 (when Habijah died) to Daniel Gookin, who had relocated from Virginia to Massachusetts. She survived both husbands, finally dying in 1688.

Ed --

Since you appear to be knowledgeable in the matters of the various Daniel Gookins, and since your notes are not included in your website (that I have been able to find), I have a question ...

Can you identify the two Daniel Gookins (Sr & Jr) who signed Edward Shepard's will in Cambridge, MA on 1 Oct 1674? To wit:

"In the name of God, Amen. Know Ye that I, Edward Shepheard of Cambridge, New England, Mariner, being through the favor of God arrived unto old age expecting daily my change, I account it my duty to set my house in order; and therefore do heregy make and declare this instrument for my last will and testament,

1. I commit my immortal soul into the hands of the Lord God Almighty, the only living and true God: distinguished into three glorious persons, The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; resting and relying on the merits, righteousness and satisfaction of my dear Lord Jesus Christ for life and salvation.

2. That concerning my body, my will is that it be decently interred resting in hope that by the virtue of Christ's Resurrection it shall in God's appointed time be raised up again and united to my soul and both soul and body in one man be translated to eternal happiness and there to live with God and praise him forever.

Lastly, concerning my temporal estate my will is that that which shall be and remain after my death, my will is that my just debts and funeral expenses, being first paid, the remainder to be disposed of as followeth,

Imp- I geve and bequeath unto my dear wife Mary either the sum of twenty pounds to be paid her by my executors within three months after my decease in such household goods and other things as may be suitable for her at equal prices as two honest men shall judge or in case of difference to be determined by the County Court; or else the use of my dwelling house, barn and orchard that lie on the north side of the Street during her life, provided she keep the same in tentable repair. All the rest of my estate my will and order is that it be divided into six equal parts-- two parts I give and bequeath unto my son, John Shipard, or in case of his death before me then equally divided among his children; unto my daughter Elizabeth one sixth part or in case of her death before, then equally divided among her children; unto my daughter Deborah one sixth part, and in the case of her death before me then equally divided among her children; Unto the children of Daniel Pond which he had by my daughter Abigail, deceased, one sixth part equally divided; unto my daughter Sarah one sixth part, or in case of her death before me then equally divided among her children.

I do hereby nominate and appoint by dear son, John Shipard my executor of this will and in case he should decease before me that I do appoint his eldest son my executor.

In testimony of the truth hereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this first day of October, 1674.

Signed: Edward Shephard

In presence of us, Daniel Gookin, Senior Daniel Gookin, Junior."

Edward's will is on file at the Middlesex Probate Office in East Cambridge, Mass.

The Daniel Gookins are of interest to me as part of my Strickland genealogy. It is commonly accepted that it was Thwaite Strickland who built a dwelling for a Daniel Gookin in Westerly, RI, and that this Daniel Gookin is reportedly the son of a Daniel Gookin who emigrated to Virginia from Ireland and is possibly a clue to any possible connections between the Stricklands of New England and those who descended from Matthew Strickland of Isle of Wight, VA.

The above Edward Shepard is Thwaite Strickland's father-in-law.
