    • RESEARCH NOTES:
      1. Elizabeth Goodwin and John Crow are mentioned in the following excerpt of William Goodwin's biography: "The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633," Volumes I-III:
      "William Goodwin
      Origin: Braintree, Essex
      Migration: 1632 on Lyon [Hotten 150] First Residence: Cambridge Removes: Hartford 1636, Hadley by 1659, Farmington by 1670... Estate: ...In the Hartford land inventory of February 1639 "Mr. William Goodwing elder there in Christ Church" held twenty-two parcels, seven of which had been granted to him: three acres with dwelling house, outhouses, yards and gardens; one acre, one rood and ten perches in the Little Meadow; thirty acres, three roods and twelve perches of meadow and swamp in the North Meadow; four acres and thirty-four perches on the east side of the Great River; fourteen acres in the Old Oxpasture; eight acres in the Cowpasture; and twenty-eight acres, three roods and twenty-eight perches on the west side of the Little River. Among the remaining parcels, acquired by purchase, was "one parcel belonging to Mr. Goodwin & to John Crow jointly lying on the east side of the Great River," which they had bought from several persons, totalling seven hundred sixty-six acres [HaBOP 23-28]. On 26 March 1645 "Mr. William Goodwin of Hartford upon Connecticut River, ruling elder in the Church of Christ there, and John Crow of the same town, planter," sold to "Thomas Newell of Tunkses Sepos [Farmington] and John Standly of Hartford ... all our buildings and dividend or dividends of land made or to be made at Tunkses Seposs" [Farmington LR 1:54]... Marriage:: (1) Shalford, Essex, 7 November 1616 Elizabeth White, daughter of Robert White of Messing, Essex [NEHGR 55:24]; she died before January 1669/70. (2) After 7 December 1654 and by January 1669/70 Susan (Garbrand) Hooker, widow of Rev. Thomas Hooker; she died at Farmington 17 May 1676 [Farm VR Barbour 58, citing FarmLR 2:141]. Child: With first wife
      i Elizabeth, b. say 1620; m. by about 1640 John Crow of Hartford (probably as his second wife, since his eldest daughter Esther was born about 1628 and so was too old to be daughter of Elizabeth Goodwin) [Goodwin Gen 105-07]. In 1674 "Ozias Goodwin aged 78 years and W[illia]m Goodwin aged about 45 years" testified that "Mr. W[illia]m Goodwin deceased and Mr. John Crow his son-in-law ... were copartners in their buyings and sellings" [Goodwin Gen 107-08, citing Connecticut Archives, Private Controversies, Volume One].
      Associations: William Goodwin's first wife, Elizabeth White, was sister of Mary White, wife of Joseph Loomis of Braintree, and of Anna White, wife of John Porter of Windsor [NEHGR 55:22-31]... Bibliographic Note: The family of William Goodwin has been especially well treated in print, due mostly to the patronage of James Junius Goodwin and the research of Frank Farnsworth Starr. In 1891 a number of authors, at the behest of James Junius Goodwin, wrote lengthy chapters which were gathered as "The Goodwins of Hartford, Connecticut, Descendants of William and Ozias Goodwin," (Hartford 1891), cited herein as Goodwin Gen. A biographical account of William Goodwin himself was prepared by Rev. George Leon Walker (pp. 77-94), and a similar treatment of Ozias Goodwin was done by Charles J. Hoadly (pp. 97-102). Frank Farnsworth Starr compiled the genealogies of the descendants of these two immigrants (pp. 105ff.). James Junius Goodwin then commissioned Starr to compile an account of some of his ancestral lines, which did not include any Goodwin material, presumably since that had already been published in 1891 ("Various Ancestral Lines of James Goodwin and Lucy (Morgan) Goodwin of Hartford, Connecticut," 2 volumes [Hartford 1915], cited herein as Goodwin Anc). Finally, the same team produced a massive three-volume set based on decades of research on the Goodwin name in England ("English Goodwin Family Papers, Being Material Collected in the Search for the Ancestry of William and Ozias Goodwin, Immigrants of 1632 and Residents of Hartford, Connecticut," 3 volumes [Hartford 1921], cited herein as Goodwin Papers). The material of most interest to descendants of William Goodwin may be found in Volume Two (pp. 1123-24, 1171-77)."

      2. NEHGS Register, Vol. 55, pages 22-31, 1901, see notes of Robert White for full transcript of article from which the following partial excerpt is taken:
      "The children of Robert White of Messing, Co. Essex, England, Who Settled in Hartford and Windsor. By a Descendant...
      William Goodwin and his wife Elizabeth left but one child, a daughter Elizabeth, who married John Crow, an early settler of Hartford. The date of her birth is not known, but it could not have been earlier than 1617, nor has the date of her marriage been found..."
