Re: John the Crusader/ Zacchaeus Gould/y-DNA
From our English genealogy resource:
Looks very much as though the Golde/Gould Family trail from Dorset to Hertfordshire, started with Robert Golde of Sampit,. Referred to on the attachment as 'still living in 1323'
Checking back through my Database for Hertfordshire, the very first Golde/Gould record I have listed for Hertfordshire dates to 1322 : -
Robert Golde grants two acres to Stephen Grubbe in the Parish of Offley, Hertfordshire. This comes from the Records of the Duchy of Lancaster.
Some 26 years later in the year 1348, the next record in Hertfordshire refers to a John Golde, then a succession of records for a John and William Golde leading up and in to the 1400's. This follows nicely with the records for the offspring of Robert Golde and Elizabeth Botiler.
From 1429, there is a record for John Golde working as an Attorney for James Botiler, Earl of Ormond. To do with a Land Transfer and apperturnances. (Same family line as his Grandmother/Greatgrandmother - Elizabeth Botiler).
Attorney John Golde is referred to as John Golde of Somerset.
The records then go on to mention John's son John. Various records follow where the two John's are involved in Attorney work and then moves on to John the younger and then through to the Bovingdon records to a plethora of records for William, Richard, Thomas and John Golde/Gould/Goold up through to the middle 1500's.
