  • Name Michael RICKSON 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Est 1630 
    • Estimate based on date of marriage. However, this would make him 91 when he died, so maybe he married a little younger. I doubt he was born after 1640.

    • In 1649 Dorothy's guardian was her brother-in-law Vincent Brice (husband of her sister Mary). Vincent was a Faversham Hoyman, and it seems probable that as such he knew and was a friend of Michael's and introduced the two, quite likely Vincent arranged the marriage.

    • This marriage was of a widower Michael who I think must be this Michael. Not only have I found a burial for the previous wife of this Michael before this date, but I think the only other Michael Rickson in the area at this time was the son of this Michael. The wife (widow) of this other Michael left a will from which it is clear she hadn't died by the time this marriage took place.
