Many past Gostwick researchers have listed this William Gostwick as the son of Robert Gostwick  of Bedford County,who left a will in 1563, and mentions his children William, Abraham, and Anne.

Note that this William who died in Prison in 1574 was "late of Ware, in Hertford County". And he mentions a brother "lawrence" Gostwick, where Robert mentions a son "Abraham".
