General Notes: Just a note on Black Dutch... This also included Indian heritage. Many, mostly Cherokee were
Indians who wanted to remain in the standard population after the trail of tears when the Indian Tribes were
forced to move to reservation. They would tell the Census takers they were ei: Black Dutch, Black Irish, Black
German, & therefore, if they were fair skinned enough to pass, would be aloud to stay at their place of
residence. Later it was also picked up by lite skinned blacks or those of mixed heritage ( as if all Americans are

** One of the stories I have heard of in Kentucky was a family for which Mom that never allowed her children
outdoors. She was Indian and she feared that if they got into the sun, they would be recognized for their
ancestry and the family would be sent away.

was Vestryman of the Hanover Parish Church for many years. He was appointed Church Warden in 1743. His
wife, Margaret Goffe, presumably died about 1719, as he is recorded selling land about that date which deed his
wife did not sign. This couple had nine children. In his will he mentions his second wife, Mary. This later
marriage produced four more children.
Note that since Richmond County, VA was formed in 1692 from Old Rappahannock County, Isaac did not
necessarily move before getting married in 1707. Likewise in 1729, part of Richmond County became King
George County, thirty-eight years before Isaac died. In Isaac Arnold's will, dated Sept. 15 1757, he states he is
from Parish of Hanover in King George County, VA. He mentions Isaac as eldest son, Thomas Goff,
grandfather of his son Isaac, daughter Dianah Wharton and Samuel Wharton her now husband, son William
Arnold, son Benjamin Arnold, youngest son Mark Arnold, daughter Sarah Moran, daughter Isabell Rogers,
daughter Elizabeth Arnold, daughter Mary Arnold and daughter Susanna Arnold.

Isaac Arnold I, the fourth and last child of Thomas and Grace Arnold, was born in Old Rappahannock County
circa 1685 and married in Richmond County to Margaret Goffe in 1707. He died in 1758 in King George
County, Virginia. Apparently he led a very active life; was prominent in many County Councils and was
Vestryman of the Hanover Parish Church for many years. He was appointed Church Warden in 1743. He made
an effort once or twice to establish his land in his blood line by creating an "entail" on his land, but in each case
after his death the heirs broke the agreement and sold the land. His wife, Margaret Goffe, presumably died
about 1719, as he is recorded selling land about that date which deed his wife did not sign. This couple had nine
children. In his will he mentions his second wife, Mary. This later marriage produced four more children.

The children of Issac Arnold I and Margaret Goffe were also born on this same land bat after the new county of
Richmond was formed and the youngest ones in the still later formed county of King George. Most of these
children moved on westward with the opening up of new frontiers. The new frontiers of these early days only
moved about one or two hundred miles for a generation, and only explorers went into the unknown beyond.
Isaac II, the oldest son, as well as William and Benjamin, moved southwest into Spotsylvania County and
James into Fauquier County. One son, Mark, was in Kentucky as early as 1780 before the close of the
Revolutionary War. Some of the daughters married local county men but most of them moved on with their
husbands.

There is no record of his birth which can only be estimated from the first record in which he appears. Shortly
after the birth of the first son of Thomas, Humphery, on 30 August 1727, Thomas' father, Isaac, gave a deed of
gift of 60 acres of land being a part of a 226 acre grant which Isaac had obtained earlier. This gift specifically
refers to his son, Humphery, and was evidently also a gift to the recently married couple-Thomas and Mary,
On this account the date of marriage of Thomas and the date of birth of Humphery can be estimated.
On 3 May 1733 having cleared up a question of title to the same property, Isaac again provided a deed of gift
for the same 60 acres to Thomas Arnold in which it was again specified that this land should be for "Humphery
Arnold eldest son of Thomas".
No additional records exhist for Thomas Arnold until 1743 when he died intestate at his home in King George
Co. His widow, Mary, was named as administratrix 6 May 1743 and the inventory of his estate was recorded 3
June 1743.
There is no further record of this family in King George Co. other than the sale of the 60 acres by Humphery in
1753 (9). It would appear that until the sons were grown and probably as long as the widow, Mary, lived the
family remained at the homeplace. It would seem Mary may have died soon after 1749 and by 1753, about the
time Humphery married and soon moved to Prince William Co. Also about the same time, Isaac first shows up
in Orange Co. If there were other children any daughters may have married by that time or sons or daughters
may have joined Isaac in Orange Co.
The evidence regarding there being a second son, Isaac, is altogether circumstantial. This Isaac is believed to
have been the Arnold whose son Humphery, of Culpeper Co. was later of Garrard Co. Ky. where he died. The
name Humphery is a key inference in this presumed relationship.The given name, Isaac, also occurs among the
grandchildren of this Isaac in Garrard Co., Ky. Furthermore no other parentage for this Isaac of Orange Co. can
be found among all the Arnold families in Virginia at this time. Finally, the deed of gift of 60 acres of land
strongly implies that there was at least one younger son.
Parents: Isaac ARNOLD and Margaret GOFF.

One researcher has him "arriving in Pennsylvania in 1754 with brother, Phillip Arnold. Two years later
Nicholas was in Berks County, Pennsylvania (1756). He was indentured for three years..." Another researcher
has him tied to the Thomas Arnold (1649 - 1726) Lineage, being a brother of Humphrey Arnold and gives his
case for believing this. (See 2nd possibility at bottom of page.)
Note the marriage bond for Samuel Hind and Peggy Willis Arnold as folows:
Marriage Bond of Lincoln County Kentucky - Know all men by these ______ that we Samuel Hind and
Humphrey Arnold are held & firmly bound unto his Excellency Edmund Randolph Esquire Governor of
Virginia in the Sum of Fifty pounds Current Money to the payment whereof to be made to the said Governor
his Heirs & ______ we bind ourselves our Heirs & firmly by the presents Sealed with our Seals & dated this
29th day of Oct 1787 The Condition of the above oblegation is sent that whereas there is a Marriage shortly
intended to be Solemonized between the above bound Samuel Hind of Peggy Willis Arnold for which a License
has issued Now if there is no lawful cause to obstruct the Said Marriage then this obligation to be void order to
remain in full force. Signed Samuel Hind - Humphrey (his mark) Arnold. Sealed & Delivered in presence of
Willis Green.
Humphrey Arnold signs it giving a connection with that lineage and, to me, giving more weight to the second
possibility described below.
I think the statement of the last researcher made rings true. "In the case of Nicholas even though he and his
children prospered in Kentucky no information from any of their descendents have given any indication of his
origin. His date of birth has been reported as 1734 but is not supported by any specific evidence. It must be
recognized that this entire proposition is essentially speculative and any one of several bits of well supported
evidence could change the parentage identification completely. "
It is speculated with only tenuous circumstantial evidence that Nicholas Arnold was the third son of Thomas
Arnold. The only record of his children is that for Humphrey Arnold. Thomas died by 1743 at which time his
oldest child, Humphrey, was still only sixteen years old. Mary, the wife of Thomas died about ten years later.
During these ten years her three sons would have still been under her care and assisting in managing the farm
where they lived. When she died the older two sons would have been over twenty one and both were probably
married by that time. A youngest son born about 1732 would have just reached the age of twenty one. In his
case during these ten years it is possible that there might have been a guardian appointed for him.
It is to be noted that only one of the assumed three sons of Thomas, that is Isaac, had a family name. Both the
names Humphrey and Nicholas could easily have come from the family of the mother, Mary, which family
identity is unknown.
The circumstances of growing up without a father may have led the three sons to following very different
paths. The oldest son inherited all their father's land. The second son, Isaac, was very much on his own and
while he married and had a family, he never prospered.
It is possible that a third son, speculated to be Nicholas, might have benefitted from his mother's relatives or
from a guardian. In any case within two years after his mother's death he was able to secure a 400 acre land
Descendants of GOFFE

grand in western Culpeper County which provided a base for his future livelihood. At that time he was a
resident of Orange County where he appears in the Court Order records as early as 1754. From other records
mostly from 1774 on it appears that Nicholas lived in the eastern part of Orange County about at the middle
between the northern and southern boundary.
The circumstance of the marriage of the first son of Nicholas in Fauquier County also suggests that he may have
had a close association with his older brother, Humphrey, who as soon as possible when his mother died sold
the homestead in King George County and bought land in Fauquier where he lived and died. This brother,
Humphrey, served in the Revolution and it is almost certain that it was he who was a surety for his daughter,
Mary's, marriage in 1780. This particular evidence is the key item suggesting that Nicholas and Humphrey were
brothers.
Profiting from the 400 acres in Culpeper which he sold for five thousand pounds in 1780 and his 300 acre
holding on Terry's Run in Orange which he sold in 1784, he and many of his family joined the Travelling
Church to go to Kentucky.
In view of the very differing circumstances that existed from his brother, Isaac, and his family and association
between these two families was lost very early. The older brother, Humphrey, well settled in Fauquier had no
basis or reason for moving to Kentucky so he remained there where he died.
The fortunes of the family of Nicholas in Kentucky were not only favorable but were totally independent of
those of the families of Isaac and Humphrey. Thus almost immediately after the moves to Kentucky all
association and even recollection of the brothers and their families could have been lost. It is significant that in
none of these families has there been any tradition that carries back beyond or even to the particular brother.
The early death of the father, Thomas, and the relatively young death of the mother probably before she was
fifty also makes it reasonable that all tradition or recollection to the parents or all their children would have been
carried forward.
In the case of Nicholas even though he and his children prospered in Kentucky no information from any of their
descendants has given any indication of his origin. His date of birth has been reported as 1734 but this is not
supported by any specific evidence.
It must be recognized that this entire proposition is speculative and any one of several bits of well supported
evidence could change the parentage identification.

General Notes: Bond by Humphrey Arnold, consent for bride by Nicholas Arnold, Wit by Robert Hamilton and

Research of Charles HIND, Frankfort, Kentucky:
" I think there can be little doubt that Peggy Willis ARNOLD HIND was a daughter of Nicholas ARNOLD. She
probably came to Kentucky before her father in the Traveling Church part with at least one sister and her three
brothers, John, James, and Lewis, or perhaps she came only with one or two of the brothers and met the other or
the other two out in Kentucky. Circumstantial evidence points to her being at Bryants Station in 1783 at the time
of the Indian attack, and she was probably one of the girls who followed the women of the fort down to the
spring to get water."

tracts of land which Thomas HINDS sold and deeded to James T HINDS. The land is on Little Barren River.
DEED: 15 Sept 1876
Thomas HINDS and wife Elizabeth to James T HINDS…two tracts of land…Tract 1:..Beginning at HANDY's
tract of 25 acres then with a line of J T HINDS…COOK..8 ½ acres; Tract 2: Beginning at W T HINDS
line…SPILLERS 1000 Acre survey…edge of a small hollow and near a log way…18 ½ acres. There are 27 acres
in the small two tracts.
William L MUDD wants a sale of the land to settle the note and the estate.
James T HIND states that it is untrue that he purchased the 50 acres from Thomas HINDS. He denies that the
note to his father, Thomas HINDS, was made for the land mentioned in the petition. He bought from Louis
HINDS and paid him for it. Louis bought this tract from M GOFF and GOFF made the deed to James T
HINDS, the deed referred to in this petition. Thomas HINDS never owned the land or any part thereof, nor did
he ever hold a lien on it. J T HINDS further states that the land in the amended petition is a part of his
homestead and he is now living on it and occupying the land., and without the balance of the land now owned
by him is not worth as much as $1000 and he is entitled to and claims the 50 acres under the homestead law. He
asked for the suit to be dismissed.
DEED: 14 September, 1876 Jesse M. Goff and wife, Martha to James T. Hinds. .50 acres. .$200 ..Little Barren
River.. .Wm Spiller's upper corner standing on the clift of Little Barren River. .Mary Clemons. .Richard
Craddock...
Warren.. . AMENDED PETITION:
W. L. Mudd amends his petition and states that the note sued upon is for the purchase price of three tracts of
land instead of two tracts mentioned in the original petition.
Thomas Hines, sometime before his death, purchased of Jesse M. Goff a tract of 50 acres and paid him, and
Thomas Hines sold the tract to J. T. Hines at the same time that he sold the two small tracts mentioned in the
original petition. The note was filed for the three tracts of land. Goff made the deed to J. T. Hines. Therefore,
he has a lien on all three tracts.
REPLY: W. L. Mudd denies that J. T. Hines purchased the land from Lewis Hinds and paid him for it. Mudd
denies that Thomas Hinds ever owned the land.

know a thing about the note. I heard them speak about his giving a note, but I know nothing about it. I don't
know who he purchased all of the land from. I know he got some of it from Pa. I don't know that I ever heard
Pa speak of James T. owing him. I heard them speak something of having this trade up for land. I don't know of
James T. owning any other land. I don't recollect of ever hearing them say anything about the money. My
brother has never lived on any other farm except on the one where he now resides. I don't know how many
acres my brother purchased of my father. I don't know anything about the indebtedness of my brother.
Depo. of James B. Montgomery (5 July, 1881 at New Salem Baptist Church) Age 70; live Green County. I was
acquainted with Thomas Hines, dec'd. I wrote the note sued on. It was executed for land. It was for the land
that J. T. Hines now lives on. Mr. Hines told me a good deal, but I don't recollect it all. That note was what was
due Thomas Hines from his son, J. T. Hines, upon a final settlement. J. T. Hines had a claim against Thomas
Hines for perhaps a hundred dollars. I do not recollect what was said between them at the time. Old man Hines,
I think, had two claims against his son, J. T. Hines, to make the amount of the note. My impression was that
both claims were for land. I think the whole note was for the land. I don't know if the land was sold by decree
or not. I heard it was. I know that he owned another tract of land which was cut off from his father's land,
besides the land he got from Jesse Goff. He executed a note sued on, in part or all, for that piece of land. The
house that James lives on is on the land that Jesse Goff deeded to him. I think a fair value would be $8.00 per
acre.
Depo. of Jesse M. Goff (5 July, 1881 at New Salem Baptist Church) At 42 years old; I live in Green County. I
am acquainted with the 27 acres referred to. I would put it at about $7.00 or $8.00 per acre for a fair value. I
reckon it would be worth more than that if sold on time. I understood when the question was put to me, that it
was for a cash value. I am the Jesse Goff who deeded the land to the defendant. I sold the land to Bob Hines
and he paid me half of it down and gave me the note for the balance. I then traded the note to Capt. Thompson
and he and Hines both told me the note was paid. I bought the land from my father, William Goff. The
defendant's father, Thomas Hines, never had any lien on it that I know of.
Depo. of J. W. Carter (6 July, 1881, at New Salem Baptist Church) I am 38 years old and live in Green County.
I am a brother-in-law of J. T. Hines. I don't know if my father-in-law, Thomas Hines, had any interest in the 50
acres deeded by Jesse Goff or not. He listed it while Lewis Hines was gone to Kansas and he told me he
reckoned he would get the land. Lewis wrote to him for the money, and I went with him over to Ike Russell's to
borrow it, but didn't get it. I did not know that the note was given until after the old man's death. It was said
that it was given for land and that is all I know about the note. I don't know how J. T. Hines became indebted to
his father, without it was for that note. Bob Hines, they tell me, bought the land from Jesse Goff before the war
and I reckon he paid him for it. I don't know who furnished the money. I never hear the old man say anything
about the indebtedness of his son, James T., to him nor anything about furnishing any money to pay any
person for the land. I know nothing about how James T. made the payment of Goff. I've never heard how he
got the land, or where he got the money to pay for it. The note calls for two pieces of land, 7 acres and 17 acres,
I believe. I know nothing about the trade. Thomas Hinds listed the land of Louis Hinds while he was gone to
Kansas. This is the same land. I can't tell you if Thomas Hines listed that land as his own or as his son's, Lewis
Hinds. I don't think Thomas ever claimed the land in my presence. The only claiming he ever done was that he
just claimed the whole boundary after Lewis left here. He owned the land all around it, and that lay in the
middle and the old man just claimed the whole boundary. QUESTION: You have stated that Thomas Hines said
that he reckoned he would get the land of Louis Hinds. Now state if that was not on account of his son's wife
and two children dying and leaving his son without heirs.
ANSWER: No, not that I know of. He told me that he would get it from Lewis, that Lewis had gone off and left
it. I don't think Thomas ever paid his son anything for it. I don't know if J. T. Hinds paid his brother Louis
Hinds for the land.
Depo. of Mrs. Martha F. Carter (6 July, 1881, New Salem Baptist Church) I am 32 years old and reside in
Green County. I am a sister to J. T. Hines. I don't know if my brother was indebted to his father at the death of
the old man. I don't know anything about the debt, only that he said he would sell it to him. It was the land
where James T. Hinds now lives. Mr. Carter, my husband, and myself were living on the land at the time and he
was talking about us moving off, that he would have to give it up to Jim Tom Hinds as he was about to sell it to
him. This was the land deeded by Jesse Goff to J. T. Hines. This was not the 27 acre tract. This was a week or
two before we moved away from there, about four or five weeks ago. I don't know if my father ever paid Louis
Hinds for the land. My father was not hard run an aiming to sell off a portion of his land that I know of. He
was at that time unable to buy land and pay for it.
Depo. of William Lewis Hinds (6 July, 1881, New Salem Baptist Church) Age 35; live in Hart County, KY. I

James Carter. I sold it to my brother, James T. Hines. He paid me for it. He paid me part money and part in
stock. I didn't make him a title bond. There was no writing of any kind between us. My father has no interest of
any sort in the land. He furnished no money. I do not know what the note was for from my brother to my
father. I did not know there was such a note until the day of the sale. I think my brother James paid me $325
for the land. He paid it all in money except one mule at $100. He paid me $125 and the mule at one time and
then in about a year, he paid the balance. I never heard my father say that he paid any part of it. I've never
heard my father mention that James owed him. My father never owned the 50 acres. My brother, James T.
Hinds, let Jack Carter move on it.
Depo. of James T. Hinds (6 July, 1881, New Salem Baptist Church) I am the defendant in this action. I was to
give my father $216 for the land, I believe. The deed shows it paid. He let me have the land and said he would
mark it paid and afterward concluded that I had better give him something to show, so they could not butt it up
against me in the settlement of the estate. I gave the note for $316 for the land and other little trading around.
When he let me have the land he said he would mark it paid and afterwards concluded that he might die and said
I had better give him something to show so that the children could see what lowed when the estate settled up
and that if my part didn't come to that much I could pay the balance over to the children. The deed was written
about the time or after he was taken down sick. James B. Montgomery wrote the deed. ---
JUDGMENT: To sell the land. The land was appraised by John E. Davenport and John T. Rhea in May, 1879
at $121.10. The land sold' on October 20, 1879. The highest bidder was James A. Carter for $75.00

General Notes: Just a note on Black Dutch... This also included Indian heritage. Many, mostly Cherokee were
Indians who wanted to remain in the standard population after the trail of tears when the Indian Tribes were
forced to move to reservation. They would tell the Census takers they were ei: Black Dutch, Black Irish, Black
German, & therefore, if they were fair skinned enough to pass, would be aloud to stay at their place of
residence. Later it was also picked up by lite skinned blacks or those of mixed heritage ( as if all Americans are
not of mixed heritage, of course).
** One of the stories I have heard of in Kentucky was a family for which Mom that never allowed her children
outdoors. She was Indian and she feared that if they got into the sun, they would be recognized for their
ancestry and the family would be sent away.

General Notes: Joseph W. Gough offered the following on the Goff GenForum April 16, 2001 (Message No.
1719):
"William Gough, head of my line of Gough's, was born in County Gloucester, England. Records disagree on the
year of his arrival in Maryland. The "Tercentenary History of Maryland" says that he arrived in 1673; a record
handed down by William Joseph Gough of Sacramento, California says that he arrived in 1664. No one has ever
been able to find who William Gough's Parents were.
"I found this on the internet that may interest you.
"William Gough was born in England in 1605. He was married to Martha Baxter (1610-1670) and had four
children: William Gough Jr. born 1630; Martha Gough, born 1640; and twins Robert and Thomas Goffe, born
1645. Thomas Goffe married Margaret Arnold in 1670 and had four children. William Gough and his family are
believed to have sailed to America on the ship Amitee in 1635".
Since there were four children born to this couple. Two were named Goffe and two were named Gough. I am
wondering if this was William Gough or William Goffe, or could they both be the same person.J.W.G."
And, from William & Mary Quarterly, Series I, Volume V, pp. 110-112, the following:
GOOCH FAMILY
"The name Gooch appears under the form of Gooch, Gouge, Gough, and Goffe.
"William Gooch lived near the present site of Yorktown. In November, 1654, Capt. William Gooch represented
York County in the House of Burgesses, and March 31, 1655, he was one of the councillors appointed by the
General Assembly. He died the following October, aged 29. Burks's "Peerage and Baronetage", edition of 1896,
gives a William Gooch, uncle of the Governor of Virginia of that name, as having died in 1655. He may have
been this William Gooch, who became a major after his appointment as councillor. William Gooch, of York
County, left a daughter Anne, who married Capt. Thomas Beale. He probably left a son William, as Henning
(Vol. II., p. 158) tells of a difference between martin Palmer and John Prosser, who "married the relict of
William Goffe," about 1,000 acres in New Kent, granted by patent to "Capt. Palmer, and by a later patent to
William Goffe, son of William Goffe, deceased."

Thomas KENDALL and his wife, Martha GOFF, were the parents of William KENDALL who later married
John Combs' daughter, Elizabeth.
Martha Goff was the step-daughter of John PROSSER

Be it known unto all men that I John PROSSER of the County of Rappa. ... the Memory of my Deceased
Martha and for severall services done me by Martha the only daughter of my said Wife...unto the said Martha
and her now Husband Thomas KENDALL and their heirs forever one parcell of land containing three hundred
acres of land being part of a devident of a greater quantitie lying and being in the Freshes of Rappahannock
River...
Although the following paragraph is rather long, it is important in showing the relationship between this family
and the supporters of William Claiborne and of Bacon.
"In the York county books Henry Gooch, called "brother" of Major James Goodwin, was supervisor of the
estate of Major William Gooch. On the death of Robert Kinsey, he married, about 1661, Millicent Kinsey, the
widow. Henry Gooch was justice of York county, and became lieutenant-colonel. He took sides with Bacon,
and Mrs. Ann Cotton tells of a severe retort made by the commander upon him. When Bacon met the men of
Gloucester County at the court-house, he got out of patience with their lukewarmness, and offered to go away.
"Col. Gouge" tried to compromise things by calling out to Bacon "he had only spoke to the Horss (meaning the
troopers) and not to the foote." Bacon testily replied, "he had spoke to the Men and not to the Horss, having
left that servis for him to do, because one beast best would understanding the meaning of another." When the
revolt died out, the last meeting of Lawrence and the rest was held at Col. Gooch's house in New Kent
(probably in that part now King William). In 1676-'77 he was fined 6,000 pounds of tobacco and pardoned, on
his bended knees, by Sir William Berkley. This is all that is known of him (See Force's "Tracts" and Henning's
"Statutes".) Rev. John Gough was minister at Jamestown during this time, and he died January 15, 1683/4. He
married at least twice, and had by first marriage Wiliam Gough (Gooch). He married, secondly, Jane, sister of
Rev. Rowland Jones of the neighboring parish of Bruton, and her issue mentioned in the latter's will were
"Henry, Rowland, Jane, and Elizabeth Gooch."
"There is a patent to William Gough for 1,225 acres in King and Queen on Papettico Swamp, formerly the land
of "Mr. John Gough," and since granted October 26, 1694, to William Gough, as "son and heir" to his father. In
the same neighborhood there is a grant to "Mrs. Jane Gouge." Her will is on record in King William under the
name of "Joane Gough," and bears date February, 1701/2. It mentions sons Henry and Rowland Gough,
daughter Joane Peake, and son-in-law William Gough. On July 17 following, Henry and Rowland Gough
qualified as executors. William Gough (Gooch, Gouge), the "son-in-law" (the term then meant 'stepson'),
married Ursula Claiborne, daughter of William Claiborne (grandson of Secretary Claiborne), and had issue
Claiborne Gooch, eldest son ("Virginia Magazine of History and Biography", Vol. II., p. 318).
There is a little more to the article, including information on Sir William Gooch, governor of Virginia from 1727
to 1749, who was born in 1681, but had no direct descendants. ELC 2002
