PREAIMBLE. 



Since the year 1854, the writer hcas employed such 
intervals of leisure as he has found available, in the en- 
deavors : — first, to trace back the lineage of his family, 
and secondly, to follow out the posterity of its earliest 
American member, Zaccheus Gould, who appears to 
have sought the shores of New England between the 
years 1636 and 1638, and to have established himself 
finally in that part of Ipswich Avhich was subsequently, 
and chiefly through his efforts, set off into a separate 
town under the name of Topsfield. 

During these sixteen years, the town, church and 

county records of New England have been laboriously 

and extensively scrutinized, and such opportunities as 

have been found for obtaining information from special 

\ family records have been improved, until the results of 

ffhe investigation, which at the beginning was prompted 

„_^ by personal curiosity alone, have attained a magnitude 

' that confers upon them an interest of much wider range. 

• Many members of this family, and of others bearing the 
- same name, and not improbably affiliated with it by a 

common origin on the other side of the Atlantic, have 
contributed largely and most cordially to the stock of in- 
formation gathered, and the family records have already 

• acquired a fulness far surpassing that which had been 
anticipated. Through the laborious and assiduous efforts 
of my friend Mr. Somerby, the well known antiquarian, 

^sundry unknown and long-forgotten records have been 
, discovered at various places in England, which have

A 



developed the family pedigree for six generations previous 
to our first American ancestor, and have thus brought 
to light the relationship of some of the other American 
families of the name, while they have introduced a slight 
element of confusion, by showing the simultaneous pres- 
ence in New England of two persons named Zaccheus 
Gould, uncle and nephew, the latter dying unmarried at 
a comparatively early age. 

A manuscript letter, written in the early part of the 
present century by Rev. Daniel Gould of Bethel, Me., 
and purporting to give an account of the family as com- 
piled by himself from various traditions, and from manu- 
scripts which now seem to have disappeared, furnished 
the first clews for tracing the history of the family in 
America. Although many of the statements in this letter 
have proved to be incorrect, they have none the less guided 
to sources of information which could otherwise have been 
found only with great difiiculty. Some of these clews 
were effectively followed up during the early stages of 
the inquiry by Mr. Thomas B. Wyman of Charlestown, 
who made a number of journeys in my behalf to various 
parts of the New England States, in order to examine 
early records and to find the present representatives of 
different branches of the family, for the purpose of col- 
lecting such information as the elder members might be 
able to supply from memory. 

During the past few years, much additional information 
has been gathered by my kinsman, Mr. John H. Gould 
of Topsfield, whose avocations have carried him repeat- 
edly to Western cities, where he has gleaned a rich har- 
vest of facts regarding those descendants of Zaccheus of 
Topsfield, who, following the example of their honored 
ancestor, have sought and found new and thriving homes 
towards the settin£r sun. 



Thus the mass of family memorials has gradually ac- 
quired dimensions which have of late suggested to me 
the duty of placing it upon record in some permanent 
form, and in such a manner as to be accessible to all 
those interested in the subject. A plan of this sort was 
already forming itself in my mind, when events occurred, 
in consequence of which I am now on my way to another 
hemisphere, with a view to a protracted absence from 
home. Several years must probably elapse before the con- 
templated work can be prepared and published. Mean- 
while, in the natural course of human affairs it must be 
expected that many of the elders will be taken away, 
who can now give information which a few years would 
render unattainable. And should I myself not be per- 
mitted to return to ray own land, there is no assurance 
that another would soon be found with opportunity and 
inclination to continue these inquiries and make public 
his results. 

Influenced by these considerations, and being unable 
to find time for arranging in proper form all the mate- 
rials hitherto collected, it has seemed best to prepare a 
condensed abstract of the family history, containing little 
excepting names, places and dates, and to offer this to 
my kindred throughout the land, as a germ or nucleus, 
from or around which a worthy family memorial may at 
some future time be developed. Many of the numerous 
gaps in this abstract can doubtless be filled out by some 
person now living. Even where dates and names cannot 
be supplied, some definite information as to place will 
often lead to the information needed ; either by guiding 
to official records, by identifying known individuals, or 
by discriminating between different persons who bore the 
same name and Avere living at the same time. The 
amount of facts already gathered relative to persons in 



the United States, bearing the name of Gould, but not 
known to be descendants of Zaccheus, is quite large ; and 
some fortunate, though slight discovery or identification 
may at any time transfer one or more entire families from 
these records into their true place in our genealogy. Fur- 
thermore, it is morally impossible that in so extensive a 
record as is comprised even in this present abstract, mis- 
takes should not exist. I have endeavored to avoid these, 
as far as possible, by admitting no statement regarding any 
descendant of Zaccheus Gould, which is not authenticated 
by some official record, family Bible, or near kinsman of 
the person concerned. Nothing has been accepted as 
true because found in print, nor is any mere surmise, 
however plausible, presented as a fact. Indeed, there are 
few, if any, statements herein contained, for which the 
authority cannot easily be produced. 

I therefore earnestly request every one who may be 
able to add to the information here presented, or to 
correct any errors which he may recognize, to communi- 
cate with Mr. John H. Gould of Topsfield, wdio has 
kindly undertaken to receive such communications, and 
to record the facts in proper form during my absence in 
South America, — which will probably continue for about 
three years. 

The arrangement adopted requires little comment. 
The small superior tigures appended to some names indi- 
cate the number of the generation from the first American 
ancestor. The marginal numbers are affixed for the sake 
of reference only, and are subsequently repeated at the 
head of those paragraphs in which the corresponding per- 
sons appear as parents of families. The limits prescribed 
for the present abstract, comprise such paragraphs or fam- 
ily groups for all fathers of families to the seventh gene- 
ration of descendants from Zaccheus Gould, and similarly 



for all those mothers of families who were born to the 
name of Gould. Wider limits than these would be in- 
compatible with the plan of this present publication ; but 
information is desired both regarding other descendants 
in the female line, and regarding later generations than 
the seventh. 

The dates here given are intended to be in the Old or 
New Style, according to the usage at the time; so like- 
wise, the months of January, February and part of March 
to be regarded as belonging to the preceding year until 
1750, and to the following year after that epoch. But in 
many cases where confusion might arise from the ambi- 
guity in numeration, the double dates are given. 

Hoping that this contribution to the family history may 
not be deemed valueless by my kindred, now so widely 
distributed over the continent, I solicit from them the 
means of rendering the record more complete, and as 
much information as possible concerning the numerous 
individuals here mentioned, especially those who are not 
now living. — Benjamin Apthorp Gould.

ABSTRACT OF THE FAMILY RECORD. 

Thomas Gould, of Boviugdon, in the parish of Hemel Hempsted, and 
county of Hertford, seems to have been born as early as the year 
1455. His last will and testament is dated 1520, August 29, and was 
admitted to probate Sept. 28, thirty days later. In this will he be- 
queaths property to his wife Joan, and to seven children, five of 
whom had not attained the age of legal majority. The eldest two 
children were sous. 

Richard Gould, of Bovingdon, was the second son of Thomas, above 
named, and his wife was likewise named Joan. He was born, 
apparently, not later than 1478, and died in 1531 ; his will being 
dated August 25th and proved October Uth of that year. His 
widow died in 1537. 



8 

Thomas Goui-d, of Bovingclon, son of Richard and Joan, was born in 
or before the year 1500. His will is dated in 1546 and was proved 
in 1547. By his wife, Alice, he had seven children living in the year 
1537, and eight at the time of his own death ; only two of them 
being at that time under eighteen years of age. The first four of 
these children were sons ; the third being 

KiCHARD Gould, of Stoke Mandeville, who was born as early as 1530, 

and married (perhaps as his second wife), Jane, widow of 

Weden. By her he had two sons, Richard and Henry. 

Richard Gould, of Boviugdon, born about 1553, was the elder of 
these sons, and his descendants appear to have been prominent 
among the early settlers of New England. He was father of 

1. Jeremy, who married Priscilla Grover, came to Rhode Island, 

and after his wife's death returned to England, leaving 
behind him three sous, the eldest of whom, Daniel, married 
in 1651 Wait Coggeshall, and became the ancestor of the large 
and highly respectable family of Goulds of Rhode Island. 

2. John, of the " Corner Hall," in Hemel Hempsted, and of King's 

Langley, — possibly also himself a colonist of New England. 
His youngest son, Zaccheus, died in New England unmarried, 
and letters of administration on his estate were granted to 
his elder sister, Elizabclh, in England. Other children of 
John also came over. 

3. Zaccheus, our ancestor, who was born in 1589 and died in 1670 

at Topsfleld. The stones may still be seen in the Topsfield 
cemetery which probably mark the places of burial for him- 
self and his wife Phebe. In company with Messrs. Zaccheus 
Gould, his descendant of the sixth generation, and Samuel 
Todd, his descendant in the seventh, I exhumed these stones, 
hoping to find some inscription, but without success. 
Henry Gould, younger brother of the last named Richard, was born 
about 1555. His posterity appear to have remained in England, 
residing mostly in Buckingliamshire, at least for the next three gen- 
erations. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

1. Zaccheus Gould, born about 1589, resided at 

Hemel Hempsted and Great Missenden, in Eng- 
land, came to New England about 1638, estab- 
lished himself finally at Topsfield, and died there 
ab. 1670. By his wife Phebe, who died 1663, 
Sept. 20, he had the following children : — 

2. Phehe, bapt. at Hemel Hempsted, 1620, Sept. 27, 

m. Dea. Thomas Perkins of Topsfield. She was 
living in 1681. 

3. Mary, bapt. at Hemel Hempsted 1621, Dec. 19; 

m. John Redington of Topsfield. 

4. Martha, bapt. at Hemel Hempsted, 1623, June 15 ; 

m. John Newmarch of Ipswich ; died 1699. 

5. Priscilla, m. John Wildes (b. 1620) ; d. 1663, 

April 16. 

6. John, b. 1635, June 10-21; m. 1660, Oct. 12, 

Sarah Baker; d. 1709-10, Jan. 26. 

SECOND GENERATION. 
2 

Phebe-, dan. of Zaccheus Gould, m. Dea. Thomas 
Perkins of Topsfield. He was the son of John 
and Judith Perkins of Ipswich, was born ab. 
1616, and died 1686, May 7, set. 70. Their chil- 
dren were : [see Geneal. Reg. x. 213, 4.] 

7. John, m. 1666, Nov. 28, Deborah Browning; d. 

1668, May 19, leaving a son Thomas, b. 1667, 
Nov. 4. 

8. Thomas, m. 1683, Sarah Wallis ; d. 1719. 

His children were, Martha, b. 1695 ; Robert, 
b. 1697; Samuel, b. 1699; Sarah; Phebe; Han- 
nah. 



10 

9. Elisha , m. 1680, Feb. 23, Catherine Towne 

(b. 1662, Feb. 25, clau. of Jacob and Catherine). 
His children were Thomas, b. 1681, Oct. 15 ; m. 
1719, Nov. 26, Mary Wildes. [See Bradbury his- 
tory of Kenuebunkport] ; Elisha, b. 1683, May 

27 ; m. Lucy , who d. 1751. 

10. Timothy. 11. Zaccheus. 

12. Margaret, m. Joseph Towne [b. 1673, March 22.] 

13. m. Lanison. 

14. Judith, b. 1658, Jan. 28. 

3 

Mary^, dan. of Zacchens Gould, m. John Eedixg- 
Tox, of Topsfield, selectman in 1661. He died 
1690, Nov. 15. His children were: [see Gen. 
Reg. ii, 157.] 

15. Daniel, m. Phila. Pcabody (b, 1698, Sept. 28). 

16. Mary, m. 1. 1674, March 25, John Herrick of 

Beverly (bapt. 1650, May 25; d. 1680), son of 
Zachary and Mary Herrick. 

2. 1682, March 13, Robert Cue of Salem (who 
was, in the Herrick genealogy, supposed to have 
married Mary the daughter, instead of the daugh- 
ter-in-law of Zachary Herrick) . 

17. Martha, m. as his 2l1. wife, John Gould, 

Jr. [b. 1648, Aug. 5 ; d. 1712, Jan. 24], son of 
John and Joanna Gould of Charlestown, Upper 
Village. This alliance between persons resid- 
ing so widely apart suggests the possibility of 
some kinship between the Goulds of Topsfield 
and those of Stonehani. The children of this 
marriage were Samuel, Abraham, b. 1692, 
and Isaac. (See Vinton's "Giles Memorial," p. 
170.)

Martha^, dau. of Zaccbeus Gould, m. Johu New- 
march of Ipswich, whose will, made 1697, Feb. 
14, was proved 1697, April 26. He seems to 
have been a resident of Ispwich as early as 1638. 
Their children were : 

19. John, m. Johanna 

20. Thomas, m. Abigail 

21. Zaccheiis, b. 1653, m. Frances (who died 1731,

1700, Mercy Sumner (b. 1675, Jan. , d 1763, 
May 8). 

36. Samuel, b. 1669-70, March 9 ; d. 1724, ; m. 

1697, Apr. 20, Margaret Stone. 
37\ Zaccheus, b. 1672, March 26; d. 1739, ; m.

40. Mary, b. 1681, June 16; d. 1689, May 2. 

Each of these five sons of Capt. John- Gould was the 
founder of a numerous family or tribe, and it may be 
convenient to keep these distinct from one another in our 
record.

There is some confusion upon the Boxford records in 
the names of SamueP Gould's children. "Moses" is there 
erroneously written "Amos," and the birth of Jonathan 
does not appear, although his baptism is upon the church 
record, and he is named in his father's will.
