  • Notes 
    • "Daniel Gookin was the son of John Gookin of St. Augustine, Kent, England. In 1616, Gookin and his family removed to Carrigaline in Munster, Ireland and by the 1620s became a transporter of Irish cattle, goats, and human passengers to the Colony of Virginia and started a small settlement on land he held a patent to there from the Virginia Company. In 1622, he became a shareholder in the New England Company. After the collapse of his Virginia enterprise, he petitioned the king for a patent to land on the Island of Saint Brandan, a land to be yet discovered, and for free exportation of live cattle in early 1631."
