Edward GOLDSMITH (c1580-?)

and unknown (?-?)


Edward Goldsmith may have been my 11x Great Grandfather.  His date and place of birth/baptism and marriage are unknown, to me.  Might he have been the son of John Gouldsmyth of Rotherfield, whose will was proved on 10 December 1616, or, William Gouldsmith a blacksmith of Rotherfield, whose will was proved on 30 May 1623?  I have yet to read both wills.


Edward Goldsmith had 2 known children children:

  1. Tabitha Goldsmith, my possible 10x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 14 December 1606 in Rotherfield, Sussex.  She married William Whitney in 1629.  (They have their own page.)

  2. William Gouldsmith was baptised on 31 December 1609 in Rotherfield.
