Also, "Frideswide Morris wife of Sir William Goulston 1686 , She may have remarried to Sir James Etheridge but died in December 1687." Also "1686 Sir William Goulston and his wife Frideswide (nee Morris) who may have married secondly Sir James Etheridge but if so she did not survive him long being buried in December 1687.

Thanks, Marion. I have done so. There is more to be found, but I think what I've sent may be enough to get started?
