      Margaret had no children by either husband. She was still living when her father made his will but was not named in the will, apparently because, unlike her sisters, she had no children. Barnaby Jackson d. testate May 28, 1670 (probate date) in [St. Mary’s or Calvert Co.,] Md.

George’s estate records indicate that he was not survived by a wife. His administrator was Joseph Vansweringen and the sureties were John Home [sic] and Tobias Tolle. The next of kin in George’s inventory is Mr. Turberfield. The last record found for George’s wife Margaret Goodrick Jackson is on Sep. 24, 1692 in St. Mary’s Co.

      The last record found for Robert is in Charles Co., Md. on Dec. 7, 1705 when he states his age as about 70. Source: Charles Co., Md. Court Records, Liber Z, p. 226.
      There are no estate records for Robert Goodrick. The last record found for Robert’s wife Elizabeth is believed to be Dec. 6, 1687 if one accepts the proposition that the date of Gyles Blyzard’s Charles Co. will, which is set forth at Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 2, p. 35, errs by transposing the date the will was made. Gyles had not even m. his first wife Susannah Caine/Cane by Dec. 6, 1678. The last previous records for Elizabeth are dated July 1684 and Jan. 22, 1685/6.

      Francis Goodrick [Sr.] - m. _____________. The name of Francis’ wife is unknown. There is a claim that his wife was named Mary but no evidence has been found that this is so; the wife of son Francis Goodrick, Jr., however, was named Mary.
      Source: Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 9, p. 57.
      Francis Goodrick [Sr.] was still living in Charles Co. at age 79 [so b. 1647] on June 6, 1726.
      Source: Charles Co., Md. Court Records, Liber P No. 2, p. 387. It appear that he was deceased by Sep. 1728 which is the first time that son Francis Goodrick, Jr. is no longer called "Jr."

      There are no estate records for Francis Goodrick [Sr.]
      Mary Goodrick - m. Francis Gunby. Francis Gunby “ran away [from Charles Co.] leaving one daughter [Constant] who married a Burgess.”
      Source: Hooper, Debbie, “Abstracts of Chancery Court Records of Maryland, 1669-1782,” p. 14.
      It is not known where or when Mary Goodrick Gunby died. John Gunby d. testate Dec. 20, 1695 (probate date) in Somerset Co., Md., but because his will devised Charles Co. land, a copy of same was also recorded in Charles Co.
      Sources: (1) Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 2, p. 107, and (2) Charles Co., Md. Wills, 1665-1708, pp. 153-155 (MSA Microfilm Roll CR 49,151, part 1). Gunby’s will mentions no relatives except a son John Gunby to whom he leaves “one shilling when he shall demand it;” the rest of Gunby’s estate is left to his friend Joseph Wartton (Maryland Calendar of Wills version)/Richard Warton (Charles Co. version.)

      GEORGE GOODRICK AND FRANCIS ANKETILL.

      The name of George Goodrick’s wife (the mother of his children) is not known. Francis Anketill, Sr., who d. testate on Feb. 18, 1675/6 (probate date) in Calvert Co., Md., was m. to Jane ______ in 1654 and Elizabeth ______ by 1659. Source: Maryland Land Office, Patent Records, Liber 4, p. 113. Circumstantial evidence suggests the possibility that the maiden name of George Goodrick’s wife was Anketill or the maiden name of a wife of Anketill was Goodrick. George Goodrick appears to be related in some way to Francis Anketill, Sr., but there is no proof that this is so, and Anketill is not found in George’s records or vice versa. However, a review of the records of George Goodrick’s sons-in-law Barnaby Jackson, George Thompson, Raymond Staplefort and Francis Gunby reveals considerable circumstantial evidence for such a relationship. Also, and perhaps more to the point, Goodrick named the second of his two sons Francis and Anketill named the second of this three sons George.
