    • Under heading for admons. granted in 'Oct Ano Dm: 1690':
      "Johes Gotham vicisimo Septimo die Em[anavi]t Com[missi]o Johanni
      Gotham patri naturali et l[egi]timo Johannis
      Gotham nuper de Ramsgate in Com[itatu] Cantii
      Sed in Nave the Resolucon posti?? Nave erat
      the Experiment superalto Mari apud Liverpool
      in Com Lancastria Cælibis Def[unc]ti H[ab]entis
      &c Ad Administrand[um] bona juria et Credita
      dicti def[unc]ti de bene &c Jurat[o]"
      which translates:
      "John Gotham On the twenty seventh day issued forth a commission to license John
      Gotham the natural and lawful [i.e. biological and legitimate] father of John
      Gotham late of Ramsgate in the County of Kent
      But in the ship the Reolucon afterwards the ship was
      the Experiment high above the sea at Liverpool
      in the county of Lancashire the deceased being a bachelor
      and to administer the goods rights and credits
      of the said deceased he having been sworn etc. well etc."
      ['alto' in reference to the sea usually means out of sight of land, according to Collins Little Gem Dictionary, 1957 edn.] 
      (TNA ref: PROB 6/66 f.171)

      Seems clearly this John - the only one it could have been I know of, i.e. for whom I don't have a death and wouldn't have been impossibly old. In addition, being described as of Ramsgate fits - Ramsgate was in the parish of St. Lawrence in Thanet, where this John was baptised and where his parents still lived. Finally, admon. was granted to his  father, John - this John's father was John and was still living.
