  • Notes 
    • "Edmund held an official position as church warden of the parish at Donhead St. Andrew. Nevertheless, he was fined in 1636 and sentenced to do public penance for attending 'nonconforming' sermons outside his parish. He was also reprimanded in 1637 for going to church in Shaftsbury, where his brother, Thomas, lived." [The Goodenow Family Association]

      Emigrated with his family April 1638, on the Confidence out of Southampton.

      Deputy, for Sudbury, to the Massachusetts General Court nine times between May 1649 and January 1681.

      "Sudbury was attacked by the Indians during King Philip's War, and he probably commanded the Goodnow Garrison, which probably was, as garrison houses often were, his own home fortified as part of the defenses of the town. Contemporary records speak of a retreat to 'Captain Goodanous Garrison.'" [James Cox Brady and His Ancestry, citation details below.]
