Ens William Goodrich
Birth: Feb. 13, 1622
Bury St Edmunds
Suffolk, England
Death: Nov. 14, 1676
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

William was born in Bury St. Edmunds, County Suffolk, England and came to America in 1635. His father was John Goodrich and his mother was Marjerie Howe Goodrich. His parents remained in England and are buried at Bury St. Edmunds in County Suffolk. Most of the Goodrichs in the USA today are descendants of William.

Ensign William Goodrich, a son of John and Margerie (Howes) Goodrich of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England was baptized February 13, 1621/2 at Bury St. Mary.

William probably came to America in 1635 with his older brother John and their guardian Clement Chaplin on the Elizabeth. Clement Chaplin departed Cambridge with the followers of Rev. Thomas Hooker in 1636 and came to Hartford, but settled instead in nearby Wethersfield, where he was the Ruling Elder.

William Goodrich married on October 4, 1648 in Hartford, Connecticut Sarah Marvin (1631-1702), a daughter of Matthew and Elizabeth Marvin of Great Bentley, Essex. William and Sarah had 5 sons and 4 daughters, and lived out their lives in Wethersfield. William died before the inventory of his estate taken November 14, 1676, and was buried in Wethersfield Village Cemetery in a grave that probably had one of the perishable markers from that time that are no longer visible.
