I know very little about this line, except for what has been published by William and Mary and by a paper documenting “Jews in America” (of which I am proud to say I am related to the first permanent Jewish resident in North America).

The Clan
There are quite a few non-bloodline Goodwins I’ve discovered, but in the name of saving my fingers, instead of typing, I’ll just show you the chart.

Starting on page 108, a listing/narrative of the history of the Goodwin family.

I have Lyde Goodwin being born in Bristol, England, and later marrying and living in the USA. Obviously he came here in-between, but no details as of yet.
