Very interesting post and summary of the Gove Book info. However, am particularly fascinated by the opening paragraph with the comments "...old and eminently respectable English family...traces easily to the years of the fifteenth century;"
As far as I am aware the Gove researcher, early in the last century, was reduced to speculation as to the name derivation and any solid info on John Gove's (1604) ancestry.
Can you please elaborate on your comments and where one would go to find such ancestry info.?
