(Note from the Gostwick of Willington book by:H.P.R.Finberg pg.138:  Gostick is a variant of the name which occurs very frequently in connection with undoubted members of the family, and no doubt represents the usual pronunciation.  thus, Henry V111 calls Sir John G. "our treasurer GOSTYK", and the Prerogative Court, in granting administration of the first baronet's estate call's him "SIR WILLIAM GOSTICKE, otherwise"GOSTWICKE.".  Parish registers and other records in Herts, Beds, Northants, Suffolk, and London contain many references to persons named GOSTICK, who probably represent offshoots thrown off by the Willington family centuries ago.  Between 1836 and 1883 JOSEPH GOSTICK, who by the latter date had changed his name to GOSTWICK, published a number of books, chiefly on German Literature)
