Much of the section on the family of Edward Goodman of Ruthin was excerpted and summarized from the book: “Godfrey Goodman, Bishop of Gloucester“, by Geoffrey Soden, For the Church Historical Society, London SPCK (1953). This work was located in the Research Department of the Boston Public Library. Due to the limited amount of time available, I attempted to glean as much of the genealogical data as possible, but probably missed some. I will attempt to rectify this at a later date.
Portions of the Soden book also refer to the “London Society of Genealogists, Pedigree of Goodman Family“, by W. Middleton. This pedigree probably contains more detail than in the book, and I will be trying to obtain a copy of it. JPG Image from book (Large!).
Also, in the Library of Congress is a title by Goodman, “A Memoir of Gabriel Goodman“, call number BX5199.G6N5, (1825), that may relate to this branch of the Goodman family, and probably is that of the Gabriel Goodman who was Dean of Westminster.
Additional information on christenings and marriages in London is from LDS data from English church records of the time.
Many details on the Williams and Goodman families, and other related families of Wales, were found in “Annals and Antiquities of the Counties and County Families of Wales“, by Thomas Nicholas, London (1872), and reprinted by the Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, (1991).
Many of the historical details were found in “The Oxford History of Britain“, ed. Kenneth O. Morgan, Oxford-New York (1988).
References on cultural and social origins of the American Colonials are drawn largely from “Albion’s Seed”, Four British Folkways in America, by David Hackett Fischer. Oxford University Press (1989).
