About Rose Ann Gould

Rose was born about 1624 in England, United Kingdom. Rose married Francis GOULD by 1649 in Braintree, Norfolk, Massachusetts, United States.


At the Chelmsford town meeting of October 7, 1673, the town made a contract with Joseph Barrett, son in law of Francis Goole, to build a house on Robins Hill, outside Chelmsford. When built the house consisted of one room, 16 feet by 18 feet, covered with a single thickness of boards, and had one window. The house was undoubtedly built to serve as a Lookout post to warn the town of approaching hostile Indians, at that time a danger in the area. Francis---Goole, or Goold, signed an agreement with the town selectmen stating that "I have taken to hier the house and land that I now live in of the selecttmen of the town For which house and land I Do covenatt with thin to pay yearly the sum of one peck of endian Corn For the towns use as wittnes my hand this last tuesday in Desembor 1673. (Signed) Francis Goold, his mark."

Thus Francis and Rose Goole moved into the Robins Hill house, outside Chelmsford, with their children, Francis lived there until his death, March 27, 1676, while Rose remained in the house with her daughter and son in law, Hannah and Daniel Galusha, after they took it over from the town. Rose died about 1679 in Chelmsford.

In the records for this generation the name Gould is spelled variously as Goole, Goold, Gold, and Gould.
