Ozias Goodwin1

b. say 1596, d. before 1683
     Ozias Goodwin was born say 1596. He died before 1683.1

Materials for a sketch of the life of Ozias Goodwin, brother of Elder William Goodwin, are very scanty. He was born in 1596, as appears by some proceedings in court in September, 1674, when he testified that he was seventy-eight years old, and it has been assumed that he was younger than his brother. He married, in England, Mary the daughter of Robert Woodward, of Braintree in the county of Essex. This is shown by the will of said Woodward, made May 27, 1640, in which is the following: "Item I give & bequeath unto my daughter Mary Goodwin the wife of Ozias Goodwin now in New England tenne shillings."

It is not known when Ozias Goodwin came to New England. His name is not found among the passengers in the ship Lion, which arrived at Boston September 16, 1632, and brought Elder William and several others, who established themselves first at Newtown, now Cambridge in Massachusetts, and subsequently at Newtown, now Hartford in Connecticut. Governor Winthrop tells us that the Lion brought one hundred and twenty-three passengers, whereof fifty were children; of the seventy-three adults we have the names of thirty-three, all males. It is hard to believe that the forty others were all females, or that even one half of the adult passengers were of that sex, considering the newness of the plantations. Whether he immigrated in that ship or not, no trace of him has been found at Cambridge, or elsewhere in Massachusetts.

His first appearance in Hartford is as a landholder among "such inhabitants as were granted lots to have only at the town's courtesie, with liberty to fetch wood and keep swine or cows by proportion on the common." And there was recorded to him, February, 1639/40:

1.     One parcel on which his dwelling-house now standeth, with yards or gardens therein being, containing by estimation four acres more or less; abutting upon the highway leading from Seth Grant's to the Centinal (Hill) on the east, and the highway leading from the cow-pasture to Mr. Allen's land on the west, and on Tho. Burchwood's land and on Rich. Lord's land on the south, and on Tho. Hale's land on the north.

2.     One parcel of swamp on the east side of the great river, containing by estimation four acres more or less, abutting upon the great river on the west, and on the land now common on the east, and on Nich. Disborowe's land on the south, and on John Bydle's land on the north.

The home lot, or first parcel above described, was on what is now Trumbull Street, near Church Street. It does not seem to have been in his possession at the time of his death, or in 1668. Between 1640 and 1655 there was recorded to him:

One parcel on which a tenement now standeth, which he bought of widow Ketcherell, containing by estimation two roods, be it more or less, and was her dwelling-house; abutting on the highway leading from the mill to the old ox-pasture on the southwest, and on the burying-place on the east, and on Jeremy Adams his land on the northwest.

It may be conjectured that he removed his dwelling to the lot last named, partly from what is said above as to his former home lot having passed out of his possession, and partly because at a town meeting, February 15, 1655/66, it was voted, that Jasper Gunn and Ozias Goodwin should have liberty to make and maintain a stile in the burying lot, for their use to go the next way to meeting. The meeting-house was situated on the old State-house square, and it would be much more convenient for him to go to it from the Trumbull Street lot through what is now Pearl Street, then the road from the meeting-house to the mill, than it would be to go through the burying lot.

To this lot he bought a small addition, December 13, 1661. Some other small parcels of land were from time to time recorded to him, which it does not seem necessary to specify here.

Ozias Goodwin was one of the company from Hartford, Windsor, and Wethersfield, who on the 18th of April, 1659, signed an agreement to remove to Hadley in Massachusetts, "therein to inhabit and dwell, by the 29th of September come twelve months, which will be in the year 1660." That he sympathized with his brother and others who removed on account of the troubles in the church in Hartford is quite likely, but that he did not go to Hadley to dwell is evident from the following vote on the records of that town, under the date of December 19, 1661: "The towne have renewed Ozias Goodwin's former grant, provided he be here as a resident by the middle of May next, discharging all just dues and demands, else liable to forfeit his allotments with all expense to the toune," to which is added this significant clause, "Mr. Goodwin ingages the conditions in the premises for his brother."

So far as appears by the records, Ozias Goodwin never held any town office in Hartford, nor took part in public affairs. His name appears on the list of freemen of the Colony of Connecticut dwelling on the north side of the riveret in Hartford, which list wasmade October 13, 1669.

Except in her father's will, no reference has been found to the wife of Ozias Goodwin. It is quite evident that she died before her husband.

Ozias Goodwin died in the spring of the year 1683, as shown by an inventory in the Hartford Probate Records, Book IV, taken the 3d day of April 1683, signed by Wm. Goodwin Senr., Nathaniel Goodwin, and Wm. Pitkin.

The inventory was exhibited at the adjourned county court at Hartford, April 4, 1683, and the agreement for distribution approved, and both ordered to be recorded.

Although Mr. Goodwin was never a wealthy man, the meagerness of the inventory of his personal belongings may perhaps be explained in this way. He was an old man, about eighty-seven at the time of his death, and had been a widower for we know not how long. He may have divided his household effects among his children during his lifetime, reserving only what was necessary for his personal use; and it is not unlikely that one of his sons lived with and cared for him.

Of the number of his children we know nothing but what the agreement for the division of his estate reveals to us; that is, that three survived him. The eldest son, William, was born about 1629, for in 1674 he testified that he was about forty-five years old; Nathaniel is supposed to have been born about 1637; Hannah is thought to have been born about 1639, and in 1661 married to William Pitkin, Esq., who had come to Hartford from England about two years previously; and by him she became the ancestress of many who have attained distinction. She survived her husband about thirty years.
