Good Morning Alex! (well it is 8:40 a.m., here in Oklahoma USA, anyway) Let me tell you what i know about Thomas Goodfellow, as i have documented ALL that I do know. lol- Thomas may have been of Dutch Descent even though i have looked (online) at both, Holland and England, and only get results when i search England. Thomas was son of Thomas. I know from probate records in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut that his wife, Mary Grant Goodfellow says to looks to the London, Essex Area for him and his parents. One book says that most of the puritans came from the vicinity of: Braintree, Colchester, and Chelmsford, and that he followed Rev. Thomas Goodfellow, to New England, Newtown and to Hartford-although Thomas Goodfellow isn't searchable, online, until the book, The History of the First Church in Hartford by George Leon Walker (pg. 421. He was in Hartford before 1639, married Mary Grant in 1681, moved to Wethersfield, 1674, served under Henry Buck, Blacksmith, 1673 (having previously served under John Cherry), died in 1685. There are 2 Thomas Goodfellows in the London Area that could be my Thomas Goodfellow or his father, one born in 1604, the other, 1611 (Goodfellowe). Online i searched GOOGLE and BING but there are few records from that time period, but there are records of Thomas Goodfellow, London, England.What i want to know is this: Does the Buck stop here, do you think? Does my ancestry of my own last name begin and end with Thomas Goodfellow. Should i give up my Quest to findhis family in England. What do you think, Alex because i know you are fairly good at this-lol- and don't have any clue what i should do. Thank you, Alex, for your advice by the way. There really isn't anyone left i can ask about this sort of thing. My dad died, well, almost 6 years now in April and his sister (our historian) died 1 year after. I Just REALLY appreciate you taking the time to help me. Oh, and as to your question about to what extent the pilgrim fathers were involved....I don't really know.You say fathers. were there more than Rev. Thomas Hooker?
