notes

From Goodwin Neck, York County, Virginia (website)

"Our family descends through James Goodwin's (1620-1678) son Peter (abt1670-1731), who inherited the Goodwin Neck land. Peter married Rebecca Tiplady . . . in York Co, VA. Their son James Goodwin, born August 1704, married Diana Chisman, whose family is listed in the Adventurers of Purse and Person Virginia 1607-1624/5 and Their Families published by the Order of First Families of Virginia, 1607-1624/5. That book indicates Diana Chisman's family to have been living in Elizabeth City as early as 16 February 1623/4. The young couple had only one son, John Goodwin born November 15, 1735, before Diana died."
