My Goodrich ancestors
Goodrich was born abt 1616 in either Ribston, Yorkshire,
England or Guilford, New Haven, CT. The book "The Goodrich Family in
America" by Lafayette Wallace Case, 1889, page 350 mentions this Richard as
"an original settler of Guilford." No parents are listed. He died on May 7,
1676 in Guilford. The same book shows he married Dinah on June
7, 1646. She was born in 1620. Children for this marriage are
given as Bartholomew (9-3-1647), John (3-13-1650), Rachel (9-24-1653), and
Elizabeth (10-8-1655). Note that Lydia is not listed among their
children and one researcher I have contacted claims that Lydia was the
daughter of Richard's unknown first wife. Note the birth date for Lydia
(abt. 1643) would make her older than any of the children of Richard and
Dinah and she would have been born before their marriage. Richard was the twelfth
signer of the Guilford Plantation Covenant in June 1639.
The children of Richard and an unknown first wife are:
The 5 children of Richard and Dinah as listed in "The Goodrich Family in America" are listed below.
References for each of their families are noted.
02. Lydia Goodrich, daughter of Richard and an unkown first wife was born abt. 1643 in Guilford, New Haven, CT. On January 24, 1660 she married James Evarts, son of John Evarts and 1st wife Elizabeth. I descend from Lydia and James' son John Evarts who married Sarah Crampton.

|Goodrich links to royalty|
The parents of Richard Goodrich are not proven but the majority of researchers feel he is either the son of: (Henry Goodrich and Jane Savile) or (Richard Goodrich and Muriel Eure), either of which would give Richard a royal lineage given the documented lines. I would appreciate any information that helps to prove Richard's parents.
