1956-still here / William David Golden
2013.08.12 – Removed John 1/2 as being a son of William Golding b.1704. No evidence for two Johns in the family and William’s will only mentions one.
2013.06.23 – Changed the death date for John Golding b.1640 to d.1684 from d.1734; also added a link to my theory as to his origins.
2013.06.16 – Add link to newly created John Henry Golden information page.
2013.05.09 – Changed the birth year from 1635 to 1640 for John Golding married to Elizabeth Ripley. The 1635 date came from John Golding who was born 1635 to John Golding and to Joyce Thompson (b.1605 at nearby Nocton) ; John and Joyce also had a child named William Golding born just the year prior on 6 April 1634. Both were christened at the same church. >>> Think about this: even modern Dunston is ‘but a small village‘ per its 2013 description in Wikipedia. What are the chances that these Goldings are not related and that either the father or the grandfather is really named John William Golding — it would not be the first or second or third time within this family. >>> And with William being the first child of John and Joyce Golding then how often is it that the first born son is named after the father or the grandfather? … OK, so this sounds like guesstimation … but … =^)
2013.05.09 – Changed status of William Leftridge Golding as possibly having immigrated to Massachusetts or to Virginia, from just Virginia … if he immigrated at all.
