    Notes:

    One of JTSs eleven proven "gateway ancestors."

    Citizen and grocer of London. He came to New England in 1665 with power-of-attorney of his mother-in-law, to collect on a debt owed her by her brother Ephraim Child, who had died in New England in 1662. He was disappointed in this mission, finding nothing to his uncle's estate but further debt. According to a written-out memoir left by William Goddard's son Edward (b. 1675 in Watertown), "his contracted circumstances and the plague then raging in London...was probably the occasion of his continuing to tarry here and sending for his wife and children who came over in 1666."
