Book (Online/PDF) Cavaliers and Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, 1623-1800, by Nell Marion Nugent

Golding/Golden/Goulding Family History on Facebook


This book is an 850 page treasure trove of who came to Virginia when, and under what conditions and where they went. A transported person was an immigrant that usually agreed to work for their transporter for as many as seven years. The tradeoff is that they got their passage to Virginia paid for and they received some form of livable means of supporting themselves during those seven years.

A number of Goldens and Gouldens can be found in the book.

Missing from the book is any reference to a William Golder/Golden/Golding arriving in 1635.

In 1635, William Golden, a probable Gentleman, sailed from England for Virginia on 21 August 1635 aboard the ship George; in 1638 William was possibly in Massachusetts, by 1640 he was in New York (Gravesend), and by 1643 he was one of The Proprietors in the settlement of Monmouth County, New Jersey. >>> Am in search of more info on this particular William.
