Goody Bassett who was hung in Stratford Connecticut was the wife of Thomas Bassett. This is the Thomas who came to America in 1635 on the ship "Christian". He settled in Stratford with his first wife "Goodie", who was hung as a witch in 1651. He then married Johanna Beardsley, a woman 36 years younger than he. She had a family by him but the children are shown as having "never been seen". " History and Genealogy of Old Fairfield" indicates Thomas Bassett who married Sarah Baldwin as the son of one of the sons of Thomas Bassett who married Johanna. Johanna ______ Beardsley was married previously and her maiden name has been lost. I'm looking for her maiden name. Thomas had 3 children that I can find Thomas Bassett JR., Mary Bassett and Sarah Bassett. I am decended from Thomas Bassett JR. Which I found in a New England Magazine circa 1898. Any information on "Goodie" "Goodwife" Bassett would be appreciated and any further information on Thomas Bassett SR. and Joanna Beardsley.
