The history of the Goddard family in England 
was L-ouipiled by Clark LaMotte Goddard. H?s 

sudden death in 1905 made it necessary that an- 
other should continue what he had begun. 

As I had been ranch interested in the gene- 
alogy, had obtained some data concerning the 
American part of the family, and had access to 
records in the Xewberry Library in Chicago. Illi- 
nois, it became my pleasure as well as my duty 
to finish the work so enthusiastically begun by 
Clark LaMotte Goddard. No. 57.

"I was very glad of the information you seni. 
Although I had it in another form in a book pub- 
lished by William Austin Goddard in 1833, I was 
glad to have it corroborated. 

1 have been fortunate in securing a manuscript 
by Samuel Aspinwall Goddard, a descendant of the 
William who came in 1665, that went to England 
to live and there traced the connection between the 
English and American families. 

I have received some help from a grandson of 
his, an architect in London, England, whose address 
1 obtained from the Rev. Edward H. Goddard, of 
Cliffe Pypard, England, who is a direct descendant 
of the old line. 

The English genealogy is published in Burke's 
Landed Gentry and gives the name of Edward God- 
dard, of Englesham, the father of the William that 
came to America in 1665. 

You will see by the leaves that I send you that 
we are a "long family." 

While it does not make us any more important, 
it is a pleasure to be able to trace our ancestry so 
far back. 

The fact that Goddard is a Saxon name makes 
me suspect that some of the name came from "the 
Low Countries" with the Saxons that invaded and 
conquored England, with the Angles." 

(Extract from letter from Clark LaMotte God- 
dard to Frances Melanie Goddard Holmes, dated 
May 2, 1904.) 

"I obtained the arms from John Goddard 
Clark, who is a relative in the 17th century on 
father's side, but not on mother's though he bears 
my name reversed. He has been in the Bank of 
California over 40 years. He loaned me the cuts 

and I had a few printed for distribution to the fain- 


When in France with Malcolm on a bicycle tour 
in 1902, I met an English clergyman. Upon ex- 
change of cards, he remarked that the name was 
very familiar as he had a dear friend of that name. 
I got his name and address, Rev. Edward H. God- 
dard, of Clyffe Payard, England. I wrote him after 
my return, and found him to be one of the last of 
the original Goddards who had an estate of over a 
thousand acres. Through him, I learned of the 
Goddards of Swindon, England, who have an estate 
of over three thousand acres. 

Curiously, Malcolm and I circled 'round within 
20 miles of this estate on our wheels and saw the 
"Goddard Arms" among the inns mentioned in the 
guide book but had no idea of any family connec- 

The die which printed the arms on this paper, 
I got from Rainald William Knightly Goddard, of 
London, a descendant of the American branch who 
returned to England." 

(Extract from the manuscript of Samuel Aspin- 
wall Goddard, a descendant of William, of America, 
who made his home in England after 3817. Date 
of manuscript, March 17, 1845.) 

The family of Goddard, or Godard, as it was 
anciently spelt, is of a very great antiquity. It de- 
rives its origin from a Saxon source, possessed 
property in England previous to the conquest, and 
is recorded in Domesday*. Subsequently to this, 
some of the family resided in Hants, and these God 
dards are recorded in the Winton Domesday as re- 
siding and possessing lands there, temp. Henry I. 

*The Domesday book, or simply Domesday, was the first 
great English record published at the cost of the nation, 
made by direction of William the Conqueror and finished in 
1086. It treats of the different classes of persons, of lands 
and owners. The original is in Westminster. 

After this period, becoming more numerous, 
the family appears to have separated, one branch 
having settled in the counties of Leicester and 
Norfolk, time of King John. (Recorded in Chan- 
cellors rolls, 3d year, King John, 1202.) 

In 1233, Thomas Godard held lands in Middle- 
ton, county of Norfolk. 

In 3d of Edward III, (1327-77), a fine was 
levied on the lands of Nicholas Godard, of the same 
place. Lands were conveyed to Nicholas and Wal- 
ter Godard, 3d of Richd. II. About this time, Wal- 
ter Godard was Lord of Denvers, having married 
the heiress of that family. His heir, Robert Godard, 
held a Lordship in Walpole and was buried in 
Kensington church in 1148. Of this family was Sir 
John Godard, Governor of Louviers, in Normandy, 
6th Henry V. (See Bloomfields Norf.) 

In the reign of King John, 1202, we gain the 
first authentic information of the settlement of the 
Godard family in Wilts. 

Walter Godard-ville, or Godard-vil, who for 
some purposes appears to have added to his origin- 
ally Saxon name the Norman termination of ville, 
(which his descendants as readily discarded) held 
tenements and lands in Chippenham and Albourn 
in the county of Wilts. We also find grants of land 
to him in the time of Henry III at Bornten in the 
county of Northampton, at Pedrisham in the coun- 
ty of Dorset, and at Liskeree. In 1234, an injunc- 
tion was issued to the said Walter Godard-ville 
from Henry III to send horses and arms and assist- 
ance to the Earl of Brittany. He died at a late 
period of the 13th century, and from him lineally 

John Godard, of Poult on, (see extract from 

A letter from Rainald William Knightly God- 
d.^ird, grandson of Samuel Aspinwall Goddard, to 

whom I sent copy of the above for verification, 
says, May 4th, 1903, "The first five names you give 
in preceding page are more or less incorrect. 
Walter Godard-ville left only a daughter. Robert 
Goddard, buried at Terrington, Norfolk, was no 
connection. He belonged to the Norfolk Goddards, 
whose arms are on the title page of Austin God- 
dard 's book." 

There is an estate in England, at Clyffe Pypard, 
that has passed from father to eldest son for about 
three hundred years. The present owner is a daugh- 
ter and at her death the estate will pass out of the 
name. There is another estate at Swindon that has 
been in the family nearly as long, but has not pass- 
ed directly from father to eldest son. It is now 
owned by Major Fitzroy Pleydell Goddard, son of 
Ambrose Goddard, M. P. 

(Clark LaMotte Goddard, 1903.) 


John Godard, of Poulton and Uphams, Co. 
Wilts, living 1368-1434, held property at Upham, as 
per family deed dated 1429. His son and heir, 

John Godard, of Poulton and Upham, was 
father of 

Walter Godard, of Cherill, living 1460, whose 

John Godard, of Upham and Clyffe Pypard, is 
stated in the visitation of Wilts by Robert Tress- 
well, Bluemantel, 1569, to have married Elizabeth, 
daughter of William Beringer, of Manningford 
Bruce, Wilts. He died 10 March, 1545, leaving 

Thomas Godard, of Upham (and of Ogbourne) 
Wilts, 2d son of John Godard, of Upham, (see God- 
dard of Clyffe), by his wife Elizabeth Beringer, 
living temp. Henry VTTT, m. 1st, Anna, sister of Sir 

George Gifford, Co. Berks, and was succeeded by 
his son, 

Richard Goddard, who resided in a handsome 
mansion at Upham, which had belonged to John of 
Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, was said to have been 
granted by him to the family of Goddard. 

He married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas 
Walrond, Esq., of Albourn, and had (with a daugh- 
ter Elizabeth, m. Louis Pollard, Esq., of Newen- 
ham) three sons, I, Thomas, his heir; II, Edward of 
Engelsham, m. Priscilla, daughter of John D'Oyly, 
Esq., of Chiselhampton; III, Richard of Upham. 

Edward Goddard, of Engelsham, farmer, born 
in Norfolk, England, about 1600, was once very 
wealthy, but reduced by oppressions during Civil 

Married Priscilla, daughter of John D'Oyley, 
Esq., of Chiselhampton. (G. G. and B. G.) 

His house was destroyed by a Company of 
Cavaliers. He escaped in disguise. There were ten 
children who lived to become men and women.

Paul Goddard lived in Conway, Massachusetts, 
where he was born, until he was twenty-one years 
old, when he came to New York, where he spent 
the rest of his life. During the first three years of 
his residence in Now York, he taught. The family 
of four children all dated their conversions to one 
evening when some young friends came in to con- 
verse and pray with the family. This was in Paul';? 
thirteenth year, and he lived a Christian life sixty- 
seven years. He used to walk four miles to church, 
and often stood during the whole service. Mr. God- 
dard was a farmer, and one of great industry, 
energy and wisdom in the management of land and 
the care of stock. Starting out in early manhood to 
make a fortune, the method that he adopted was by 
toil, economy and industry, to win it. 

He cleared his farm in York, N. Y., lived first 
in a log house, and afterward erected one of brick. 
The men are rare who perform such an amount of 
labor as he did, while, at the same time, he was in- 
terested in the welfare of the community and giving 

for the kingdom of God. In all his busy life he 
found time to lead his family in morning prayers. 

His strong, ambitious manhood was regulated 
and directed by the divine chart he had early ac- 
cepted for his guidance, and his old age was serene 
and hopeful. For over fifty years he lived on his 
farm, and then removed to Lima, N. Y., where he 
died in his eighty-first year, gathered as a shock of 
corn fully ripe.
