Barbara Gouldman is of interest because her name is ‘Barbara’ and ‘Gouldman’ and there is a mystery in early 1700s Virginia about a Barbara Goulden that may actually be a Barbara Gouldman.
Two Barbara Gouldmans are known to have existed, both in England.
All records for these Barbara Gouldmans can be found on FamilySearch.org
My interest in these Barbara Gouldmans is due to my search for Barbara Goulden, c1720 VA – 1794 NC, who married John Rains of Caroline County, Virginia. ‘Barbara’ is a very rare name. Just as ‘Francis’ was and remains popular as a name for male Gouldmans in Virginia across 400 years, it appears that the name ‘Barbara’ has a historical appeal to Gouldmans on both side of the Atlantic.
