My mother-in-laws maiden name was Good so I have done a little research into the family. Underneath is a little bit of the history of the Goods of West Cork which I received from a friend, a link to Killowen graveyard where many of the Clan are buried and a link to two other websites. many of the Goods in this are were farmers, bakers, shopkeepers vintiners or all three. The only common christian name to be found in your family and that of my mothere in-law is William so it is unlikely that they are connected. Most of the Goods are now to be found within a 30 mile radius of Ballineen.
Hope this is of some help to you.
Underneath is the story of how the Gods arrived in West
Thomas Good b. 1583 married Mary Tirrcell
He left Redmarley D’Abitot, Worcestershire in 1634(or 1630) Was Sherriff of Worcester. He was fined £30 by Charles 1st for refusing a Knighthood and went to Bandon Co.Cork. “This action drove Good and all his relatives into the ranks of those who sympathised with Cromwell, with whom some came over to Ireland.”
One of the Goods,William, settled in Co. Cork at a place called Killowen near Bandon, receiving as his settlement the Ploughland of Mawmore. One of his sons William married Sarah Hosford and settled at a place called Kilbarry about 10 miles due north of Bandon.
(was Sarah Hosford or Bradfield? – not sure )
Sarah, wife of Wm. Of Kilbarry, buried in Murragh graveyard with her grandson Wm. Aged 3years,, eldest son of Richard Good of Aherlow, Aherla.
Wording on the headstone;-
Sacred to the memory of Sarah, dearly loved wife of Mr. Wm. Good of Kilbarry who departed this life 21st October of 1838 in the 68th of her age.
William beloved eldest son of Richard Good of Aherlow departed this life 4th may 1833 aged 3 years.
If you google “Thomas Good Redamrley Worcester” you should come upon a site “Virginia cousins” which will support some of the above.
When speaking to Teresa Mrs. Giles said that the above Thomas Good had 7 sons who came to Ireland with him. They settled in the Ballineen area and all Goods in the region are descended from those seven. Also buried in Murragh are the Goods of Kilvurra and Tullyglass. The earliest recorded deaths are:
John Good,of Tullyglass, who died on 24th May 1801 aged 91 years,
James Good who died 2oth September 1799 aged 88years
William Good who died 27th February 1767 aged 19 years.
