First Generation


This is certainly not the first generation but it is the first generation that I have traced back to. I visited with Paul Gosnell (son of James Lawson Gosnell), Madison Co, NC on 8/18/2007 and he is very knowledgeable about his family history. Paul stated that Two Gosnell Brothers came to America on the ship "The God Speed" in 1607. Their names were Joseph and James. Ages 22 and 20. He is certain that is where the Gosnell Heritage started in the USA.

Drawing of The God Speed

In June of 1606, King James I granted a charter to a group of London entrepreneurs, the Virginia Company, to establish a satellite English settlement in the Chesapeake region of North America. By December, 108 settlers sailed from London instructed to settle Virginia, find gold and a water route to the Orient.

Of the original 108 settlers Captaine Bartholomew Gosnold was among them. Bartholomew Gosnoll it is believe he died of scurvy and dysentery only three months after arriving. But there was an Anthony Gosnoll listed as a "gentlemen" and Anthony Gosnold listed as the same.


Paul Gosnell (Son of James Lawson Gosnell)
also stated that Joshua Gosnell that married Elizabeth Delila Bowers real name was Joshaway and that Joshaway had to stay two steps in front of the law because he was a bigamist. We know he had two families and was married to only one of the women. He also stated that Joshaway was nick named "greasey pockets" because he carried meat in his back pockets to give to Hannah Gunter's children. Paul helped to clean the land at Sodum Laurel, Madison Co, NC where Joshua and William Wiley Gosnell are buried. He stated that there are soapstone headstones for these men.
