Edward Gold was born about 1607, based on his age of 28 in 1635. It has been suggested by Savage that Edward was from Hawkhurst, based on other passengers on the Elizabeth being from Hawkhurst. But the surviving Hawkhurst registers have no one by that surname in the 16th or 17th centuries.
Edward Gold, age 28, embarked on the Elizabeth (Mr. Wm. Stagg master) for New England on April 9, 1635. On the 6th of April Jarvice Gold, age 30, also embarked on the Elizabeth. For this reason, it is often assumed that they were brothers.
Edward was a pail-maker. He first lived in Hingham, Massachusetts, removed to Boston, Massachusetts, by 1657, and returned to Hingham by 1663.
Edward married Margaret, widow of George Bacon, by 1643. She died 6 or 7 Feb. 1682/3. Margret, 6 Feb 1682(p25)
Hannah Gould, bp Hingham 12 March 1642/3(p15)no further record
Sarah Gould b. c 1648;bp. 29 Nov. 1658 died at Hingham 11 Feb 1731/2(p100) in her 85th year; m. in Hingham 29 November 1675 Arthur Cain24 Nov 1675(p16)
Abigail Gould b. say 1650, bp Hingham 21 November 1658;(p108) m. Roxbury, Massachusetts 10 March 1669/[70?] Thomas Lyon "Edward Goulds Daughter married Mar. 14 1669."(p295)
Hannah Gould b. say 1653 bp. Hingham 31 May 1660; m. Hingham 26 February 1673/4 Samuel Hobart.(p.14)
The baptisms of these children do not list a parent. But there are no other likely Gould's for these daughters to belong to. Jarvis Gould seems to have had only sons and Robert Gould is too young. Also the 3 last baptisms appear to have occurred when the girls were 8 to 10, which is unusual, because the usual scenario for late baptisms is all on the same day.
