About John Goodwin


Although the will names no places, it is obvious that William was of Blofield, because he refered to the parish church of Saint Andrew which is in Blofield, but more, he bequeathed to his son John the tenement called Gibbs. This tenement was in Blofield and was later bequeathee by John's son, John Junior, in his will of 1593. Thus, these two items in his will establish William as being of Blofield and that he was the father of John through whom this line of descent runs.

Archdeaconry of Norwich, Wills: Holmes 86: Will of John Goodwin made 25 April 1593 & proved 20 August 1593
