There are five profiles that are in the category of England, Orphaned Profile needs work.

I am related to some Goulds from South Molton, Devon,  they are not direct ancestors, this was back in the 1700s , four generations going onto the late 1800's, I have not added them to wiki yet, as they are  very distant from me. But my Goulds that I have not added here are could be related to the five profiles you want to adopt. The oldest Gould I have from South Molton is William Gould born 1725 South Molton, died South Molton 1801.
It looks like the North Molton Goulds are a different family. The earliest that I've been able to trace the paternal line is back to a William Gould, baptized in 1707 in North Molton, who married Margaret Bawle in Chittlehampton in 1732.
They are probably related but  from too far back to connect

If they are truly orphaned profiles you can adopt them and help wikitree by adding sources, (not family trees from ancestry) and biographies if you are so inclined.  Thank you for offering to improve them.  If you wish you can reorphan them.  You do not need to adopt them to make improvements if they are open profiles, white lock.
