  10. John Gostwick Sr. b bef1666, of Stoke Bruerne, married Letitia

Of Interest, ranked:

1) John Gostwick Esq., b1669, d.1715, married Martha Hammond, daughter Mary b1697

+1 for daughter named Mary, +1 for mother using 'Martha', +1 for all children baptized in London, +1 for Mary & John in legal action in London abt1710; Mary listed as Infant
2) Charles Gostwick, b. bef 1660, Middlesex, married Elizabeth Parnell, marriage only
+1 for Middlesex, +1 to be alive old enough to marry
3) William Gostick, b. abt 1677, married Mary Sadler, daug Mary b bef1712
+1 for daughter named Mary

With +4 for Martha Gostwick being Mary Gostwick, daughter of John Gostwick & Martha Hammond, I am comfortable with this as a match until other evidence surfaces.
