John Goodfellow of Fovant, Wiltshire

John Goodfellow was Ari’s 8x great-grandfather. He lived in Fovant, Wiltshire, and must have been born in about 1673 (working back from the births of his children from 1695, so probable marriage in 1694). I have found a baptism at the church of St George in Fovant, on 24 July 1674, with father Richard.

Otherwise all we know about John is from the baptisms of his children: William, Mary, Anne, Lucy and Jane (all from the collection of Wiltshire, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, 1538–1812 on Ancestry.co.uk).

Unfortunately, none of them gives their mother’s name.

John died in July 1743 and was buried at the church on Fovant on 24 July.

Ari, this is how you are related to John:
