It is not likely that Edward and Anne (Wentworth) Gostwick waited until 1611 to start their family since they married in 1603.

I have no definate proof, but am listing the children who is most likely children of Edward & Anne.

 1. 1605, Mar.06th. Anne G.  bapt. St.Olave's, Hart Street London, (dau of Edward


1614,Feb.19, Fraunces (daug of SIR EDWARD GOSTWICK, KNIGHT) bapt.Feb.19,1614 County of Berkshire, Bisham -Parish Register 1560-1812..Since Frances was born in 1614, Sir Edward Gostwick, knight was born ca. 1592 or earlier. (kgk)

William Gostwick age 30(m) Aug.17,1674 London St. Margaret Lothbury "Joanna Wolf"
(widow) age 27.  If William was age 30 in 1674 then he was born ca. 1644.
I find one William Gostwick b.1643 (son of Gabriel)

William Gostick c. Jun.14,1675 Westminister St.Paul,Covent Garden
(son of William & Joan)


There is a William Gostwick born ca. 1630 that married a "Sibil/Sybilla"(?)
IGI listings for William & Sibil/Sibilla Gostwicke/Gostwyk/Goustwyck

1658, Jul.20, Francis Goustwyck c. London St. Helen Bishopgate

(all listed as children of William and Sibil/Sibilla)



1.a.1.2. Mary Gostwick b. Jul.26,1612
             married Jan.20,1628 Ravensden, Bedford Co. Eng.
           Nicholas Spencer b.Nov.15,1611 (? on birth year) died 1644
                     children listed:
William Spencer of Cople b.n/r d:Sep.1686 (m) Catherine Wentworth (dau of Thomas)
Nicholas Spencer b.1633 d:Sep.23,1689 Westmorland Co.Va. (m)Frances Mottrom
Michael Spencer b.n/r
Robert Spencer b.n/r
Edward Spencer b.n/r
Mary Spencer b.n/r

The above information can be found in several different Gostwick family Genealogy records of England, but as to the accuracy of those children belonging to Sir Edward and Anne (Wentworth) Goswick, we do not have accurate proof.  There were many Gostwick,Gostick, ect., families throughout different Counties of England.


In London Co.England I find on the IGI records:

Frances Gostick c. June 10,1622 London St.Giles Cripplegate(dau of Edward born ca. 1599/1600))
Jane Gostick c.Aug.06,1623 London St.Giles Cripplegate (dau of Edward)
Mary Gostick c. Jan.10,1624 London St.Giles Cripplegate(dau of Edward)

Since this Edward Gostick has named his children: Frances, Jane & Mary, this sounds like the Edward Gostwick who would be the son of Sir William and Jane (Owen) Gostwick/Gostick.  Since Jane (Owen) Gostwick/Gostick is said to have re-married in London Co., it is most likely that her children were all in London Co. also.



Hertford Co.England IGI records:

Edward Gostwyke c. Mar.30,1620 Graveley, Hertford Co.Eng.
Thomas Gostoyke c. Jul 03,1621 Graveley, Hertford Co.Eng.
Hanna Gostwyke c. Dec.09,1622 Graveley, Hertford Co.Eng.
Ann Gostoyke c. Aug.12,1624 Graveley, Hertford Co.Eng.

(All  listed as children of Edward Gostwyke/Gostoyke)

(This appears to be the children  listed under Edward and Anne (Wentworth) Gostwick)

In HPR Finbergs Gostwick's of Willington, he states that Sir Edward and Mary Litton Gostwick had issue as the same listed above, but that the son William (m) Sep.17,1668 Watton on Stone,Hertford Co. " Mary Boteler" If so, then William was only 18 years of age in 1668.,
