Agnes GOSLING. She was born approximately 1570 in Weyhill area, Hampshire, England. There are a number of Gosling families in Hampshire, but no parents have yet been proven for this very early period. Although her marriage date is noted from those who seem to have seen the original record or an index, I have not yet seen an original where I would expect to find her father's name. The church below, St Michael's & All Angels, may be the one her family attended.
On 13 Oct 1589, Agnes married Robert BENT in Weyhill. Robert was the son of John BENT who died in 1588. Agnes and Robert apparently had 10 children, although I have only noted 7 names found in baptism records for Weyhill:
- Margery, bap 28 Mar 1590
- Richard, bap 7 May 1592
- Jane, abt 1594, d. 1631; m. Robert Plympton, 2 surviving children
- *John [ancestor], bap 20 Nov 1596, d. 27 Sep 1672 Sudbury MA; m. 1624 to Martha [unknown-possibly Blanchard]; 5 children
- Maria, bap 24 Sep 1598, buried 2 Feb 1598/99.
- Dennis, bap 10 Dec 1599\
- Agnes, bap 16 Jul 1602, d. 1639 on voyage; m.Thomas Blanchard; infant died on voyage
