THE GOFFE FAMILY
***********************************
[Webmaster's note: There is much discussion regarding the origin of John-1 GOFFE below. Since I could not find any definitive proof of his ancestry, it is not included here].

John-1 GOFFE, who came from England with his two brothers in 1662 or 1663, was admitted to "Increase Mather's Church" in 1676 or 1677. He took the usual oaths at about the same date. He m. 1678 to Hannah Sumner, daughter of William & Elizabeth (Clement) Sumner, of Boston, and d. at Boston July 24, 1716. She b. 10 June 1659 and d. between 1715 and 1720.

***GENERATION TWO**

John-2 GOFFE, Esq. (John-1) was born 18 Sep 1679, baptized 24 Sept. 1679; he died 18 Sep 1748; was commonly known as "Squire" Goff; About 1701 he m. Hannah Parish (or sometimes written Parris). She b. in Boston, MA in 1679. She was the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Parish/Parris who had a garrison house in the south part of Dunstable (now Nashua) NH. REPORTEDLY, [see note below] her father Robert, mother and older sister were massacred by the Indians about 1691 and that the two young girls hid under a hogshead in the cellar and were saved, Hannah reportedly being one of these This story is in dispute. John & Hannah Goffe removed from Boston to Londonderry 1719.
Note--The story of the massacre of Robert Parris and his wife and daughter and the miraculous escape of two little daughters by an ingenious concealment in the cellar has been given in several publications. The event is not mentioned by Penhallow or by Pike. The story of the massacre was first published, 1823, in Farmer and Moore's Collections.,[p.58] Vol. II, page 306. It has been refreshed and enlarged by Fox and Nason. The record proves that Robert Parris died in Chelsea and that his wife survived him. One of the little girls said to have been concealed in the cellar on the date of the assumed attack, was a wife and mother of several children and was safely living in Chelmsford; the other was married and living in Boston]. One of the first settlers of Derryfield [Manchester NH]. In his will, he bequeathed to his daughter Mary, 50 pounds, 5 shillings, old tenor, and one cow. To his grandson, Benjamin Litchfield, he gave one hundred acres of land in the township of Londonderry. He also gave to his grandson, John Kidder, all his right, title and interest to a fourth division in Londonderry. To a number of granddaughters Hannah Gorman and Sarah Linkfield, along with Sarah Kidder, Mary and Esther Kidder he gave forty shillings each, and the remainder of his property he left to his son John, and his grandchildren, the heirs of his daughter, Mary Wood. His son John was appointed executor.

***GENERATION THREE**

Col. John-3 GOFFE, (John-2, John-1), b. 25 March 1701, probably in Boston MA; baptized in Second or North Church (Increase Mather's) 25 March 1701 ; died 20 October 1781; married 16 Oct 1722 in Roxbury MA [or Boston in one course] to Hannah Griggs, of Roxbury, MA, dau of Ichabod & Margaret (Bishop) Griggs; she was b. 2 Oct 1702 and d. 18 May 1798. He went with his father to Londonderry NH at an early period. He settled at the mouth of Cohos brook, the outlet of Massabesic pond at the Merrimack river, about three miles below the city of Manchester, at what is called "Moore's village." He is sometimes called "Hunter John" in old documents, as his early life was spent hunting. He was also a justice of the peace. The (current) Wayfarer Inn is located on the site of the historic John Goffe's Mill. He was granted this land as a reward for his services to the colony in the French and Indians wars. In 1746 to 1755, was a captain in service; in 1757 he served against Crown Point, as lieut. col., and in Col. Munroe's surrender, lost 80 men by massacre; in Amherst's campaign he was second to Col. Lovewell, and in 1760 led 800 provincials to Montreal under Haviland. In 1761 he was at Ticonderoga, as we learn from a letter written by him to his only son, Lieut. John Goffe. He was stationed at Fort William Henry, which surrendered to the French; eighty out of two hundred of the New Hampshire regiment were murdered by the Indians, as they marched out of the fort, unarmed, after they had capitulated. In 1768 he was Colonel of the 9th N. H. regt. (He was appointed colonel by Governor Wentworth, and held his commission as such until the Revolutionary War.) In the register of New Hampshire for 1768 we find him colonel of the ninth regiment of militia. At the time of the American Revolution, Colonel Goffe was too old to take an active part as a soldier. In 1771 when New Hampshire was divied into five counties, and the courts were re-organized, Colonel Goffe was appointed judge of probate for Hillsborough county, and retained that office until 1776. He removed to Bedford some time previous to the American revolution, and represented Bedford and Amherst in the General Court. He was a religious man. As was the custom in those days, he would conduct divine service on the Sabbath in his own house. It is said he sang and prayed, and read a selected discourge to his audience. People from Bedford and also Goffstown and possibly Merrimack and Litchfield attended that worship. He is buried in the old graveyard in Bedford NH.

REGARDING JOHN GOFFE'S MILL
A Historic marker can be found on Route 3 in Bedford near the Manchester line, about .2 miles north of its junction with Route 101. This is considered the site of Squire John Goffe's log homestead on Bowman's Brook. John Goffe's Mill, now part of the motel complex across the road [see the Wayfarer link], was built in 1744 by his grandson, Major John, rebuilt in 1834 by his great grandson, Theodore, following a fire, (and the following year added new and improved mechanical devices, the most notable being an iron turbine that replaced the wooden wheel). The unsually heavy flood in the spring of 1909 caused the mill to collapes, and the mill was abandoned and the buildings on the land were leased for farming In 1939 another descendant, Dr. George Woodbury, returned to the ancestral home in Bedford NH. The site consisted of a wooded lot, a vacated house and the crumbling ruins of the old mill on Bowman's Brook. Dr. Woodbury restored the mill, operated it throughout the 1940's and 1950's turning out stone ground flour and pine furniture, specializing in a milking stool (popular as a TV chair). He wrote two books about the Goffe family and the mill. In 1962 the Dunfey brothers purchased the property and opened the Wayfarer Inn. The grist mill was incorporated into the gift shop. The Inn is now owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

Hannah-3 GOFFE (John-2, John-1) b 4 Feb 1705-6 [old proprietor's book], and died at Litchfield NH August 29, 1734; she m. 9 Feb 1723 in Londonderry NH to Edward Lingfield [Linkfield] by Rev. Mr. McGregor. He is called "Corp. Edward Lingfield" of Nutfield, and is listed among those joining the 'Lovewell Expedition' in April 1725 to attack the Pequawket Indians (he survived the expedition). In 1722, along with his brothers-in-law, John Goffe Jr. and Benjamin Kidder, built a house on Cohas Brook, being the first nown inhabitants of the present city of Manchester.The first tax-list in 1733 for Nottingham NH [part of "Old Dunstable"] shows the name of "Edward Lingfield." He bought, Oct 13, 1724, of Henry Wark, a tract of land in Chester [NH] which he sold January 3, 1725-26 to James Frye of Andover MA, and July 5, 1725 he bought of Benjamin Kidder another tract of land in Londonderry NH , which he sold March 30, 1727 to John Moore. Edward Linkfield died by 30 Nov 1748 -- In the Haverhill District probate book, 1748, shows guardianship of [his son] Benjamin Linkfield, minor, aged more than fourteen years, son of Edward Linkfield of Haverhill District, yeoman, deceased, granted to James Walker of Souhegan East, yeoman, Nov. 30, 1748.

In 1722 he and his brothers-in-law, John Goffe Jr. and Edward Linkfield, erected houses on Cohas Brook, then in Nutfield, and became the first known inhabitants of Manchester. He was a landowner there from 1721 to 1729, and from 1732 to 1740. He lated removed to "Souhegan East" (later Bedford NH) where he resided until his death. His name appears on the Muster Roll of the Chelmsford MA company in 1724, and in 1725 his name appears on the list of men in Capt. Joseph Blanchard's Company at Dunstable NH. He was one of 46 men who marched from Dunstable about 16 April 1725 under the command of Capt. Lovell. At "Ossapy" he fell seriously ill, upon which the Captain halted his men and built a fortification where Benjamin Kidder was left under the care of the company doctor.
