I have been researching the Goffe/Goff Family Line. Below should be a link to let you view my Descendant Lineage ( this includes EVERYONE tied to this lineage of Goffe/Goff's, even other surnames - possibly two pages, sorry adding this part is new to me). As for now I have over 2200 names and 680 surnames starting with a John Goffe b.about 1527 m. Margaret possibly being parents of Thomas Goffe b. about 1550 in England descending down to Anthony Goffe/Goff b. 1656 m. Sarah Polley descending down to one born January 27, 2002.
Thomas Goffe (1550) starts the Goffe's in England with having atleast seven (7) of his grandchildren coming to America in the 1600's to make their living in MA, CT, or RI. From what i've read of other researcher's - looks like the Goff's were one of several first settler's with somewhat of high authority in MA. We've had shoemaker's, several who've fought in wars (Rev. War, War of 1812, etc), utilized water-power of the village tributary to Palmer's river for sawing lumber and other mill purposes.
I also have Stephen Goffe & Elizabeth Goffe's lineage to a point.

Some of what I have may be incorrect, please feel free to write me and correct any mistakes you might find or ask questions if you have one. I would like this lineage to be as correct as possible and since we're ALL human's we can make mistakes.

If you have photo's of any of these relative's and would like to have them added here please either email me a copy or snail mail a copy.

Thank You! Jean Goff
