Gostwick Name Study

Re: Currently Conflicted connection between Gostwick-16 and Gostwick-63

Query Target: FATHER OF William Gostick b. 1675-1682 married Mary Sadler 1698, so birth is (1698-16=b bef1682) of Podington, Beds.

Children's names: Mary, George, Thomas, Isaac?

William's father would be 16-50yrs old at birth (1675-16=b bef1659-1667) and (1675-50=b aft1625-1632) Let's shoot the middles as a range Statistically, William's father would likely be born between (1628-1662)

Select * from people where sex=M and...
where name contains (("gas") or ("gos")) = 1208 records
and Birth < 1670 = 187 records
where name doesnt contain ("gascoig") = 178 records
and Birth > 1627 = 37 records
Exclude 7 records by hand that werent really people = 30 records
where Death > 1675 = 22 records

Unlikely choices:

  1. Benjamin Gostwick of Devon, b1650-d1679, unlikely
  2. Isaac Gostwick, b1663, Northants, unlikely
  3. John Gostwick, b1648, Staverton, Devon married Mary Pudner unlikely
  4. John Gostwick Sr, bef1666-d1738, Stoke Bruerne, Northants, unlikely
  5. Joseph Gostwick, b1663, London <<-- this Joseph went to Maryland
  6. Robert Gostwick, b1639, Devon, unlikley
  7. Roger Gostwick, b1633, Devon, unlikely
  8. Roger Gostwick, b1639, Devon, unklikely
  9. Samuel Gostwick, b1641, Devon, unlikely
  10. Thomas Gostwick, b1638, Devon, unlikely
  11. William Gostwick, Rev. b1643, Devon, 'Rector of Purley'(Berks) unlikely

Likely Infant deaths with only baptisms:

  1. Rowland Goswick, b1655, Willington, Beds son of Sir Edward 3rd Bt & Mary Litton (baptism only)
  2. John Gostwick, b1654, Willington, son of Sir Edward 3rd Bt & Mary Litton (baptism only)
  3. Francis Gostwick, b1658, London, son of William & Sibilla Heath, (baptism only)
  4. John Gostwick, b1661, London, son of William & Sibilla Heath, (baptism only)

Beds Results not yet ruled out:

  1. Charles Gostwick, b1653-d1691, Willington, Beds
  2. Charles Gostwick, bef1660-daft1702, married Elizabeth Parnell
  3. George Gostwick, b1636, Marston Moretain
  4. John Gostwick, b1641, Marston Moretaine, son of William & Susanna
  5. William Gostwick, b1630, Willington

London Results not yet ruled out:

  1. William Gostwick, b1644, St Giles in the Fields, London, married Joanna Wolfe 1674

The bold William b1644 married Joan is where I have placed this William. More evidence could easily change my mind, but hes the best current choice, IMHO

Conflated choice based on Death date in Cambridge Records.
