  • He is linked to Fenwick, first known Goswyk Manor house location, and holds 1/3
  • He is linked to Goswick the town, and Holy Island
  • He has a son named Patrick de Goswyk as they appear together in 1242.
  • Henry de Goswyk & Adam de Behill hold other 2/3 at Fenwick
  • Patrick was a revenue collector for the Bishop of Durham


Patrick first appears in the Testa de Nevill about 1210.

abt 1210, Gosewic, Northumberland, England[5]

Patricius de Gosewic tenet terciam partem de Gosewic in drengagio et reddit inde per annum 13.s. 5.d. et facit operaciones apud Fenwic.

Translated: Patrick de Gosewic, holds the third by the year, and he pays a portion of the 13.s. Gosewic's tenure 5.D., and makes operations at Fenwic

Adam of Behill, Henry of Gosewic, Patricius of Goswick, each hold a third part of Gosewic


He appears as witness to many transactions, but few of them as subject, suggesting he holds a roll where he is acting as a clerk, or administrator; perhaps for the Bishop of Durham, who was the true government at the time for the area.
