1701 Myrtle was raised by her father’s sister Lydia Hamm and her Hamm grandparents.

Comments from son Victor F. John:
She changed to Methodist because I couldn’t join the Scouts as a Lutheran.
She met Clarence at the Marshfield Hospital, where he had been taken after a train wreck. He had been married previously to meeting Myrtle and had a daughter.
They received $25,000 from the train wreck settlement, and went on a spending spree, spending a lot of it in Florida. When they got back they bought a bowling alley in Schofield, Wisconsin. All this happened just before[after] the depression in the mid 1920’s[30s], so the bowling alley went bust as no one had any money to spend on such luxuries during the depression.
Lived in Gillett, Oconto Co., Wisconsin, Laona and Crandon, Wisconsin and Wausau, Marathon Co., Wisconsin.
Spent a lot of time making canned goods preparing for winter. I can remember bags of cheese hanging in the rafters dripping liquid until it turned into cottage cheese.
NOTE: my corrections added in [] because, they were married in 1931, and depression started in 1929.

Mrytle was living with her daughter Claire during her illness which is why she died in Waukesha.

1702 Mysteries Of The Early Goble Families And Their English Roots!
The first of the family in America was Thomas Goble, who settled at Charlestown, Mass., in 1634, but later removed to Concord, in the same colony. By his wife Alice, he was the father of six children, John, Thomas, Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah, and Daniel.”

Thomas Goble (1590-1657) of West Sussex, England
by Terence T. Quirke, PhD, CG
Civil Registration of births, marriages and deaths did not start in England until 1837. Prior to that time the most reliable source of such data is to be found in Church of England (C of E) parish registers. In some parishes such records began to be kept as early as the mid-1500s. Until about 1750 most of these records were written in Latin.
There is an index to Sussex marriages, which can be accessed by the name of the groom and/or bride, +/- actual or approximate date of marriage. I requested information about the marriage of Thomas GOBLE and Alice MOUSALL, probably at least by 1630 since when they arrived in North America in 1633 or early 1634 they had a son who was said to have been about three or four years old.
The reply I received was: 5 November 1619, Thomas GOBLE and Alice BROOKMAN at Aldingbourne, West Sussex. This is several years earlier than expected and the last name of the bride is different than that previously published in North American genealogies. Thomas is reported to have died in December 1657, with no age at death given . If he had been 20 at the time he married (i.e., b. 1599) he would have been 58 at death, not an impossible age, even in those years.
In examining several pertinent early New England genealogical references, it is seen that many do not state Alice's maiden name, leave it blank, or state that she was "perhaps daughter of Ralph MOUSALL" without citing any source of that supposition. In fact, Dorothy Hand DYMOND after reviewing various family relationships and relative ages in previous works, states, "Thus, Mousall cannot be considered the maiden name of Thomas (1) Goble's wife."
The result is that a marriage of one Thomas GOBLE and an Alice somebody took place in the right place at about the right time and three of the 'known' names out of four are as anticipated. On this basis and with the aforementioned uncertainties in mind, it is believed at this time that the marriage record found in Aldingbourne of Thomas GOBLE and Alice BROOKMAN is that of the couple that arrived in Charlestown, Massachusetts in late 1633 or early 1634, pending information to the contrary.
A search in transcripts of the Aldingbourne parish records was made for baptisms of Thomas GOBLE, Alice BROOKMAN and their son John said to have been born about 1629. Thomas and Alice probably immigrated to North America in search of "religious freedom" as many of their contemporaries were reported to have done. From this one can suppose that in England they were opposed to or, at least, unhappy with the state Church of England. They were thus, 'dissenters' or 'non-conformists'. This is further indicated by the fact that they were admitted to the First Church of Charleston soon after their arrival . In England at this time for a marriage to be legal and recognized it had to be performed in and by the C of E, which explains the record reported above, but non-conformists usually did not have their children baptized or buried from the C of E. In fact, baptism in some sects was not performed until one was an adult. With this knowledge it is not surprising that no baptism of a John GOBLE was found between 1600 and 1650. However, Thomas's parents may have been more traditional since there is a record as follows : "2 Jan 1590 (1591) Thomas filius Willmi GOBLE de Westergate." Westergate is a village within a mile of Aldingbourne. This would make Thomas 29 at the time of his marriage and 67 at death. Neither age is impossible, the age at death being the least credible.
There is no record in Aldingbourne of the marriage of a William GOBLE going back to the first entry in the parish records on 30 October 1558. On 1 May 1593 a burial of "Willmus GOBLE de Westergate" is recorded . There is no record of a baptism of Alice BROOKMAN in the Aldingbourne parish register. Neither is there any record of the burials of Thomas, John or Alice GOBLE that might indicate that the people recorded remained in the area until death and thus could not be the people in Massachusetts. However, this is not necessarily substantive since as stated above, non-conformists probably would not have been buried from the C of E, anyway.
In a cursory examination of the I.G.I. the surnames BROOKMAN, MOWSELL/MOUSALL and GOBLE were seen to occur in some of the adjacent or nearby parishes. It may be that the antecedents of the couple who came to North America can be identified with greater confidence in another parish. Meanwhile, a search for early GOBLE wills will be made with the anticipation that other significant family relationships and localities may be identified.

Thomas Goble was born born January 2, 1590/91 in the village of Westergate, near Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England and migrated to America in 1634. Thomas, with his wife Alice, and son John, who was about 3 or 4 years old at the time, paid for passage on one of the many ships headed for "the colonies" (probably the Abigail, Hopewell or Lion), and migrated to America in about 1633 or early 1634, settling in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Either in route or shortly after arriving in the colonies, Alice gave birth to their second child and first daughter, Elizabeth, in 1634.
Previous genealogical studies have suggested that Alice was Alice Mousall, the daughter of Ralph and Alice Mousall. However, according to newly discovered marriage records it is believed Alice's surname was Brookman. Thomas Goble and Alice Brookman were married at Aldingbourne, West Sussex on 5 November 1619.
Thomas and Alice were admitted to the first Church of Charlestown on August 30, 1634. Thomas received his papers as a freeman September 3, 1634 (at the General Court) and was granted 4 acres "planting ground on Newton Line" the same year. To become a freeman meant to be granted citizenship and freedom to live in a city or borough.[Freeman 3 Sep 1634 - Massachusetts Bay Colony]
By 1638 Thomas owned, in or near Charlestown, 5 lots:
* (1) House and 1/2 acre at west end of common
* (2) 4 acres Linefield southwest Cambridge line,
* (3) 2 3/4 (acres) cow commons (3/4 sold to W. Baker in 1654),
* (4) 15 acres woods
* (5) 50 acres Waterfield

By 1638 he had not only amassed sizable land holdings but had increased his family by three additional children: Thomas Jr., born about 1635; Mary born February 27,1636; and Sarah, born in May of 1638.
On October 1, 1640 Thomas Goble served on what is believed to have been the first jury ever to convene in Boston. It found Hugh Buets guilty of heresy and that "his person and errors are dangerous for infection of others." The defendant was ordered "out of the jurisdiction by the 24th psent, upon paine of death and not to returne, upon paine of being hanged." The jury was granted 12s (shillings) for their services (presumably 1s each). On December 13, 1653 "goodman goobell" paid 1 pound, 16 shillings "in Indian" (corn) for tuition and fees to Harvard College. This was followed by a similar payment on January 15, 1654 of 1 pound in "wheatt and Indian"; and a payment on December 8, 1655 by "old gobbell" of 1 pound, 14 shillings and 6 "d", 17 shillings "in wheatt" and 7 shillings, 6"d" "by Indian." The index of the Records of Court of Assistants of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, volume 2, identifies "goodman goobell" and "old gobbell" as Thomas Goble.
Thomas had become a respected citizen of Charlestown. He was a very wealthy man by the standards of the time and place, and consequently was probably important in local government. Land was at a premium at the height of the Great Migration, and settlement pushed out in all directions. Before moving his family to Concord they had another child, Daniel (2) Goble, born July 18, 1641. Daniel was hanged for murder in 1676.
Thomas acquired a large farm near Concord, which upon his death on December 29, 1657 in Concord, Massachusetts, went to his son, Thomas (2), his third child. The farm remained in the Goble family for many years, as it was described in several deeds as "the land known as Goble's farm." The old house was still standing as late as 1904, and the farm could be located at the edge of "Walden Woods" on the road leading west from Lincoln Village near Concord "the land known as Goble's farm."
This photograph of the farmhouse of Thomas Goble is copied from Concord, a Climate for Freedom, by Ruth R. Wheeler, 1967. This book contained photographs of many of the homes of early Concord residences. She says of this house - "Goble farm house, later owned by Farrar, near the old Sudbury bound, on Wayland Road, Lincoln." Thomas Goble and Daniel Dean, contemporaries in the new world, purchased 1000 acres of the new land of Concord from Thomas Stow and Henry Woodis in 1660. Thomas Goble became one of the major investors and landholders of Concord. The old house and the farm could be located on the road leading west from Lincoln Village near Concord.
Thomas's will was signed by him "the 30th day of the 9th month, 1657" (November 30, 1657) and probated December 29, 1657. Alice was still living at the time of Thomas' death, as she was mentioned in his will - "I give and bequeath to Alice my wife fair profit of all my stock so long as she liveth a widow...". The inventory taken of Thomas' estate listed some items which were only owned by the very wealthy, i.e.: "one featherbed, two feather pillows, & wool blankets, one small featherbed, two bolsters, two blankets, and one trundle bed, 40 pounds of paraffin, two iron pots." Bedding and linens were a mark of wealth, most people didn't have them. Paraffin would have been for candles of the highest quality, a real luxury item. Iron pots were manufactured items imported from England. Additionally, the mere fact that Thomas Goble could write his own inventory to the will and sign his name put him in a special class. Literacy was higher in New England than elsewhere because of the Puritan emphasis on reading the Bible, but still those who could both read and write were a minority.

Terence T. Quirke, Jr. Ph.D. CG. who is a member of the Goble Family Association is descended from the Hawhurst England branch of the Goble family. Their progenitor was John Goble, born before 1638 in Etchingham, Sussex, England. Dr. Quirke has provided us with two interesting discoveries.

* While searching for records on Thomas, prior to immigration, a search of the Sussex Marriage Index revealed that Thomas GOBLE married Alice BROOKMAN at Aldingbourne, West Sussex on 5 November 1619.
* Dr. Quirke also researched the Aldingbourne, baptismal parish record transcripts in West Sussex and found Thomas and identified his father. "2 Jan 1590 (1591) Thomas filius Willmi GOBLE de Westergate." (See above article relating to this.)

Possible brothers for him are Robert, Thomas and William. He does have a brother John who is mentioned regarding guardianship of his children.

According to book James left Scotland as an orphan to live in Ireland with Aunts and there married Jean. Calculating his age at the birth of their children, he married at about 40, kind of late for a first marriage. They only had the two children, granted others born earlier could have died young. Anyway no actual sources for this information. A website [] states that a different James and Jean are meant, but are probably related.

Early School Records from 1696; In turning over the musty volumes of our town records, which for many years have been in quiet repose, we find some interesting matters relating to the introduction of public schools into Portsmouth. At the time widow Bridget Graffort presented a lot of land for a public school house in the year 1700, there does not appear to have been any school house owned by the town. Schools for boys had been patronized by the town, but the teachers received some further compensation from the parents. The town clerk was doubtless a man of average education, or he would not from year to year have been elected to his office. The following literal extracts from his records are curiosities in more respects than one.

There may be earlier records of public school movements, but we have not found any made prior to 1696.
On the 16th of March in that year, among the votes passed was the following:

Findagrave entry for Nathaniel - Memorial #46687581:

Nathaniel Berry, s. of Joseph & Rachel Berry, was b. circa 1665 at Portsmouth, NH and d. before Aug. 16, 1718, the date his estate inventory was rendered at Mansfield, Conn. He m. at Hampton, NH on Dec. 3, 1691, Elizabeth Philbrick, b. at Hampton on May 3, 1667, dau. of Thomas Philbrick and Ann Knapp [Dow: History of Hampton, NH, vol. 2, p. 918].
The following is provided as the basis for correcting numerous misconceptions about the Nathaniel Berry family. Further, to correct longstanding errors in the printed literature regarding daughters Bethiah and Elizabeth.

In 1712 the Nathaniel Berry family was residing at Portsmouth, NH within that town's Greenland parish or tax district. Present-day Greenland, NH was not separated from Portmouth and made its own incorporated town until 1721. In the list of Portsmouth's Greenland tax district dated Feb. 5, 1711/2, "Natll Bery" was taxed at 15 shillings. [NEHGR 22:451]

Rev. William Allen, son of Rev. James Allen of Pittsfield, Mass., was ordained the first pastor of the Greenland church on July 15, 1707, but his record of baptisms and marriages do not begin until 1712. In a list titled the "Names of those in covenant before my ordination and in full communion," number 20 is Elizabeth Berrey. This indicates that prior to July 1707 Elizabeth (Philbrick) Berry at least "owned the covenant" of some Congregational church, presumably at Portsmouth. This refers to the "half-way" covenant of the Congregational Church that allowed persons to have their children baptized, but not also take communion. In a separate heading of "Persons admitted since my Settlement," apparently made in the year 1712, number 3 is Nathaniel Berrey. [Ibid, 28:252]

In the Hartford, Conn. Probate District is the following abstracted estate record [Manwaring, Vol. 2, pp. 354-5, citing Probate Vol. IX, Page 283]:

• Nathaniel Berry, Mansfield. Invt. £165-18-06. Taken 16 August, 1718, by Thomas Huntington and John Arnold.
• Court Record, Page 78--2 September, 1718: Adms. granted to Elizabeth Berry. widow.
• Page 107--7 July, 1719: This Court appoint Elizabeth Berry to be guardian to her children: Sarah, age 14 years; Abigail, 11 years. Recog., £100. Also, the widow exhibits an account of her Adms. Allowed. Order to distribute the estate as followeth:

• To Elizabeth Berry, widow, £25-13-01
• To Nathaniel Berry, son, £20-07-00
• To Rachel Fulshom, Ann Fenton, Bethiah Gove, Elizabeth Berry, Sarah Berry, and Abigail Berry, to each £10-03-06

• And appoint Thomas Huntington, John Arnold and Thomas Storrs, of Mansfield, distributors.

Based on the above, coupled with the marriage record of their dau. Ann, the Nathaniel Berry family arrived at Mansfield, Conn. by 1716. To the best understanding available, Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Philbrick) Berry had the following children, assumed to have been b. at Portsmouth, not Greenland, NH:

• i. Rachel Berry, b. circa 1693, purportedly d. at Windham, Conn. circa 1733; she m. Israel Folsom at Hampton, NH Sept. 30, 1713. Thereafter and beginning in 1716, all of their known children were b. of record either at Ashford, at adjacent Stafford or Windham, Conn.

• ii. Capt. Nathaniel Berry, Jr., b. May 1695, d. at Kent, Conn. Dec 30, 1757, Æ. 83; m. Rebecca Hatch at Falmouth, Mass. Dec. 18, 1722, dau. of Joseph Hatch and Amy Allen, b. of record at Falmouth Jan. 25, 1699/700. She d. at Kent. Conn. May 9, 1783, Æ. 84. They are ancestral American grandparents of Sir Winston (Leonard Spencer) Churchill, Prime Minister of England during WW II.

• iii. Bethiah Berry, poss. b. May 6, 1697, d. at Hampton, NH April 17, 1727, "aged" (Æ.) 30, after giving birth to four children. Her first child, dau. Elizabeth, was b. at Hampton Nov. 12, 1719. She m. by late 1718 as his first wife Edward Gove of Hampton, NH, s. of Ebenezer Gove and Judith Sanborn. In the inventory of Bethiah's father at Mansfield, Conn. is a debt owed to Edward Gove, Bethiah's husband. Each of Edward and Bethiah's four children were individually named for their respective grandparents: in birth order Elizabeth (Philbrick), Nathaniel (Berry), Ebenezer (Gove) and Judith (Sandborn.) Dow's History of Hampton, NH, vol. 2, pp. 738-9, incorrectly gives Bethiah the maiden name of Clark, which is why her descendant family has not been successful in uncovering the identity of her parents for the last 100 years.

• iv. Ann Berry, b. circa 1699, d. July 1, 1785 at Willington, Conn.; m. Jan. 1, 1716/7 at the Greenland Cong. Chh. at Portsmouth, NH, Francis Fenton [NEHGR 65:352]. He was b. at Woburn, Mass.

1725 Nedstatunet at Aga has been inherited in the family we know at Aga from medieval times to now, and what we know about the family and the ownership circumstances at Aga before ca. 1600 is discussed in Vol. I,
pp 296-99.

Farm No. 4, Aga.
1. Johannes Torgilsson Galte (b. ca. 1560) was probably born at Torsnes, where his father lived in 1563, but his grandfather lived at Aga in 1521. He inherited not a little land after his father, but also got lands with his two wives. In 1591 he represented Ullensvang at kongehyllinga1 in Oslo. He was married twice. His first wife must have been of the Torsnes family, since she had the best odel rights to lands that Nils Guttormson on Torsnes had pawned as security for loans. That her other son was named Per also points back to Peter Nilsson, [possible father for wife], on Torsnes; perhaps she came from Sandvin in Kvam. Johannes became a widower around 1600, and then married the widow Kristin Fykse and moved to Fykse in Kvam, but in 1627, when he apparently had become a widower again, he had returned to Aga. Probate after him was held 21 May 1644 at Hovland. His landed estate amounted to ca. 20 laupar butter landskyld. He owned 2 lp. butter, 2 hides in Aga in addition to parts in Stillingseik in Vats, Samland in Jordal, Haugluten in Seim and Nesodden in Granvin, Neteland in Kvam, Lydvo at Voss, Hereid and Lægreid in Eidfjord, Hakestad in Ulvik, Apold, Hovland, Sekse, and several smaller parts here and there.
