Misc. Notes
See Rodgers233 and Anderson222 for many details on the considerable estate of Edward Goffe. This is the Goffe of “Goffe’s College,”642 one of the original Harvard College buildings along today’s Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge.

Thompson670 has discovered the precise geographical origins of Edward Goffe and the full name of his wife Joyce Frost, and provides further details on Edward’s life prior to his migration to New England.

Could there be a family network here of Goffe/Wilkinson/Longley/Blood/Crispe? Thompson suggests a possible relationship between Edward Goffe and the Rev. Edmund Brown of Sudbury and his wife Anne (Whiting-Lovering) Brown.
