John Goldsack (1882-1955)




(1) Petter Goldsacke/ Gouldsacke (1679-1724) married Sarah Arthur (1675-1729).

Sarah was born in Nonington to John and Mary Arthur. John was buried 20 June 1690 at Nonington and Mary was buried there on 27 Oct 1715. They had seven children, all baptised at Nonington (the first four on 13 September 1666):

(2) Mary Arthur (c.1654)

(2) John Arthur (c. 1661)

(2) George Arthur (c. 1664)

(2) Robert Arthur (c. 1666)

(2) Elizabeth Arthur (bap.10 Sept 1672)

(2) Edward Arthur (bap. 10 Sept 1672)

(2) Sarah Arthur (Bap. 28 June 1675)

According to the Bishop's Transcripts Petter Gouldsacke married Sarah Arthur at Saltwood on 16 January 1699. The entry reads: " Peter Goldset of Saltwood (Batchelor) married after Banns Sarah Arthur of Hythe at Saltwood". The entry was found after seeing the following Quarterly Session records for 1699-1700:

FILE - Sessions Papers - ref. Q/SB/26 - date: 1699-1700

item: Order for William Honeyman, gaoler for the Eastern Division to bring into court at Epiphany Quarter Sessions for East Kent Peter Goldsack to give evidence in a settlement case - ref. Q/SB/26/98 - date: 14 January 1700/01
item: Incomplete document concerning the appeal of New Romney against a removal order of Sarah, the wife of Peter Goldsack, from Saltwood to New Romney - ref. Q/SB/26/109 - date: 14 January 1700/01

The above Peter Goldsack was one of the HOME CIRCUIT prisoners reprieved to be transported to Barbados or Jamaica on July 11, 1702. He is listed as "Peter Goldsacke of Cheriton".

For whatever reason, Petter was in trouble and was separated from his wife. They were reunited in July 1702 and the couple moved to Ringwould, however their first three children were baptised at Nonington (with a notation that the family was from Ringwould). The last two were baptised where they lived, at Ringwould. This could be related to to the fact that Sarah's family lived in the area. Her brothers and widowed mother still lived there until Mary's death in 1715. Here are Petter and Sarah's children (first one baptised a year after Petter's return):

(2) Peter (bap. 25 July 1703 - 1774)

(2) John (bap. 21 Oct 1705-buried 10 July 1734) m.( 14 May 1733, Buckland) Sarah Redman (d.1734)

(2) George (bap. 17 Oct 1708) m.(2 Oct 1740, Kensington) Ann Austin. *George was a member of the Ashford Congregation of Baptists.

(2) Elizabeth (baptised 12 Sept 1712- buried at Ringwould on 6 Feb 1714) * Interesting to note that Petter Gouldsacke's sister, Elizabeth, was married 22 April 1712. Was his daughter named in honour of his sister?

(2) Sarah (bap. 5 Feb 1715) m.(13 July 1738, Canterbury, St. Martin's) Abraham Sturges. Both from Ash.

Petter died in 1724 and was buried at Ringwould on the 22nd of May. Sarah shortly thereafter moved to Dover to be with her family. The Arthur family had been in Nonington until Mary's death in 1715. After that they went to live and work in the Dover area. It is possible that Sarah went to live with her brother, Edward. Sarah was buried at Dover (St. James) 15 Feb 1729.



(5) John Goldsack (24 May 1681-1711) was born in Dover, St. James parish. He married Joanna Vile (b.26 Dec 1679) at Dover on 28 July 1703. Joanna was the daughter of Edward Vile (1646-27 Sep 1733, Dover) and Thomasin Dove (d. 13 Mar 1726, Dover) they were married 24 July 1677 at Dover. These were their children (all births and deaths at Dover, St. James):
