(For clarification, or perhaps confusion, please first read Appendix A - Various Individuals Named John, Joseph, and Jacob Gootee)

One family tree listing from the Internet indicates Joseph Gootee (Gouty) Senior was born in 1661 at St. Donat, Diocese, Vienne, France. Another family tree on the Internet indicates Joseph Gootee Senior was born in 1661 in Vienne, Poitou-Charentes, France. Neither listing identies a source of the information. The Maryland Archives of 22 May 1695 record the naturalization of John Goutee (Senior) and Joseph Goutee (Senior) and Joseph (Junior) and John, sons of said Joseph Goutee.
(1A)

Joseph Goutee, a son of John Gootee Senior and his wife Margaret, married Elizabeth Insley on 25 February 1689/90

Appendix A

Various Individuals Named John, Joseph, and Jacob Gootee


Nine Individuals Named John Gootee

(various spellings include: Gowty, Gouty, Goutey, Goute, etc.)


1. Name: John Gootee Senior
a. birth date:
27 January 1639/40
b. birth location:
Saint-Gregoire, Ille de Vilaine, Brittany,
France (per
Descendants of John Gootee listing, author not
known)
c. death date: 1711 (per will - Old 6 175 / 16 May 1711)
d. death location:
Dorchester County, Maryland (per will)
e. spouse’s name:
Margaret, perhaps Beeson was her surname
(per land records and Maryland Archives naturalization)

f. marriage date and location:
probably about 1660 in France
g. left a will or died intestate: will - 6 Old 175 / 16 May 1711
h. occupation: weaver (per will); also cordwainer or shoemaker
(per
Descendants of John Gootee listing, author not known)
i. item(s) of special significance: first Gootee to arrive in Maryland; identified in the Maryland Archives in 1695
(per Volume 19, page 211)

will - Old 6 175 / 16 May 1711:
John Goutey of Dorchester County, Weaver, to his son Joseph Goutey, Planter: All of his property except one heifer given to Grandson, Joseph Goutey and one shilling to daughter Judith Coale.

The first documented GOOTEE in Maryland was John GOOTEE (Jean GAUTIER), a French citizen who arrived on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in February 1662, sponsored by Antoine LeCompte, a Gentleman and large landowner in Maryland.
John was married to Margaret, whose last name is unknown but believed to be Beeson or Besson. Margaret and a son, Joseph, arrived in Maryland in 1666 and she completed her servitude (indenture) on 6 February 1679. At that time her husband, John, was granted fifty (50) acres of land, which they named "Callais," located between what is now Egypt Road and Little Blackwater River (eventually, "Callais" contained 450 acres). John and Margaret Gottee [sic] and Stephen Beeson (Ettiene Beeson were naturalized on 19 April 1671 and listed as "Citizens of France."
There apparently is a record of a John Goute [sic] that arrived in New Kent, Virginia, at the head of the York River, east of Richmond, Virginia, on 5 March 1654. This John was transported by John Peteete. If this record is correct, then this John Goute probably was born by 1636. This surely must refer to John Gootee Senior if correct.


2. John Gootee Junior (a son of John Gootee Senior and Margaret, his wife)
a. birth date: probably by early 1660s
b. birth location:
France (per Maryland Archives
naturalization)

c. death date:
1699 (per will probated 1699)
d. death location:
Dorchester County, Maryland ( per will)
e. spouse’s name:
never married
f. marriage date and location:
not applicable
g. left a will or died intestate: will – made 04 May 1699 and probated 07 August 1699, Dorchester County, Liber 21, folio 103
h. occupation: tanner (per Old 5 124, Dorchester County,
Maryland, 15 November 1698, land record, John Goutee
Junior, tanner, to Joseph Goutee Senior)
i. item(s) of special significance: no known children; identified
in the Maryland Archives in 1695 (per Volume 19, page
211)

will - Liber 21, folio 103,
probated 07 August 1699. He devised all of his real estate to his father and mother, John and Margaret Gootee.

(inventory) Inventories and Accounts. John Goutey Jr., 1699, Dorchester, Liber 6, folio 290

It must be John Gootee Junior who was a witness to the will of Andrew Insley on 14 April 1699 which names Michael Todd as a son-in-law.

3.
John Gootee the Elder (a son of Joseph Gootee Senior and his first wife, Elizabeth Insley)
a. birth date:
probably in early 1690s
b. birth location: Dorchester County, Maryland (per residence
of his parents)
c. death date: about 31 May 1748 (per will)
d. death location: Accomack County, Virginia (per will)
e. spouse’s name: married Mary Lisney before 1727, apparently
in Accomack County, Virginia (per will of Mary Lisney
Gootee and land record analysis)

f. marriage date and location:
(per will of his wife and land
record analysis)
g. left a will or died intestate: will (per page 268, Orders, Accomack County, Virginia, 1744-1753, 31 May 1748)
h. occupation: unknown
i. item(s) of special significance: identified in the Maryland
Archives in 1695 (per Volume 19, page 211)

will - 31 May 1748 John Gowtee administered his will to Widow, Mary. Mason Abbott and Thomas Parramore, Sec. (pg 268, Orders, Accomack County, Virginia, 1744-1753).
1727 Ralph Lisney left his land, 100 acres (A169) (including 30 acres of A166) to his daughter Mary, who married John Gowtee. (Vol 2, Virginia’s Eastern Shore by Ralph T. Whitelaw)
James Brown administered his estate to John Gouty. (Vol 2, Virginia’s Eastern Shore by Ralph T. Whitelaw).

This John Gootee is the son of Joseph Goutee mentioned in
Archives of Maryland, Proceedings and Acts of the General Assemply, 1693-1697, Volume 19, Page 211, Assembly Proceedings, May 8-22, 1695. 211, An Additional Act to the Act for Portes. Lib. L. L. 2., p. 90, An Act for Naturalization of Mathias Mathiason, als. Freeman, Peter Golley, John & Joseph Goutee and Joseph and John Sons of the said Joseph Goutee.


4 John Gootee the Younger (a son of Joseph Gootee Senior and his second wife, Ann Harper)
a. birth date:
probably about 1714 to 1717
b. birth location:
Dorchester County, Maryland
c. death date:
1764
d. death location:
Dorchester County, Maryland
e. spouse’s name:
Elizabeth “Betty” Lnu
f. marriage date and location:
g. left a will or died intestate: TO DO
h. occupation: TO DO
i. item(s) of special significance:

John Gootee the Younger and his wife Elizabeth Lnu possibly had a son named Joseph Goutee born 02 November 1757 in Dorchester County, Maryland.

The following must refer to John Gootee the Younger who died in 1764 because it lists John Goutee as “Junior”.

Settlers of Maryland 1751 – 1765:
Goutee, John Jr; Dorchester County, Maryland
Name of Tract Acreage Date Reference(s)
Hazard 21 3 Jul 1761 BC14/528; BC17/224
Second Chance 20 3 Jul 1761 BC14/519;BC17/353

It is possible John Gootee the Younger who appears in the Maryland Calendar of Wills, Volume 7, as a witness to the will of John Hollock, since the will is made in Dorchester County, Maryland. However, another John Gootee, a son of Joseph Gootee Junior and his first wife Sarah, also lived in Dorchester County, Maryland at this time.

5. John Gootee (a son of Joseph Gootee Junior and probably Sara Mills)
a. birth date: 1710 (per deposition in Dorchester County on 12
June 1764 in OLD 20 218; (born about 1713 per
Descendants of John Gootee listing, author Bob Gootee)
b. birth location: Maryland (per Descendants of John Gootee
listing, author Bob Gootee)
c. death date: before 30 March 1780 (per Descendants of John Gootee listing, author Bob Gootee)
d. death location: Maryland (per Descendants of John Gootee listing, author Bob Gootee)
e. spouse’s name: Elizabeth “Betty” Bramble (per Descendants of
John Gootee
listing, author Bob Gootee)
f. marriage date and location: about 1744 (per Descendants of John Gootee listing, author not known) (It seems likely he
would have married about 1730 if he was born in 1710.)
g. left a will or died intestate: unknown
h. occupation:
unknown
i. item(s) of special significance:


This John Gootee must be the one who gave a deposition on 12 June 1764 in OLD 20 218 where he stated his age of “54 years or upwards”. The depositions in this land record were given to a Dorchester County, Maryland, court and we assume this John Gootee lived in Dorchester County at that time. This John Gootee therefore was born about 1710. This John Goote may have died before 30 March 1780 in Maryland.

This is where is gets very confusing. Need to research the following from an internet listing. Seems to mix two John Gootees in my opinion:
Dorchester County Revolutionary Patriots 1775-1783 by Henry C Peden:
Gootee (Goutee, Gouty), John, (2 Apr 1755-4 Aug 1818) Son of John and Betty Gootee of Dorchester Parish [Ref: FF-99, GG-41]. Subscribed to the Oath of Allegience and Fidelity in 1778 [Ref:K-30, L-117]. The children of "John and Betty Goutee" were William Goutee b. 25 Aug 1745; Prissiller Goutee b. 2 Nov 1746?; Mary Goutee b. 2 Mar 1748; John Goutee b. 2 Apr 1755; dau. Cynthia Goutee or Gouty, married John Nicols or Nicolls in 1797; Joseph Goutee b. 2 Nov 1757? in Dorchester Parish [Ref: GG-41, RR-2186 (SAR National Society No. 107560, documented and approved in 1974]. John Gotee was head of household in Straights Hundred in 1776. aged between 21 and 30, one male between 16-21, one female between 30-40 and three females between 10 and 16 [Ref: AA-46].


6. John Gootee (a son of John Gootee the Elder and his wife Mary Lisney)
a. birth date: probably about 1740 (parents married before 1727; his father died in 1748)
b. birth location:
Accomack County, Virginia
c. death date: after August 1764
d. death location:
probably Accomack County, Virginia
e. spouse’s name: Bridgett Major
f. marriage date and location: 1764 in Accomack County,
Virginia
g. left a will or died intestate: unknown
h. occupation: unknown
i. item(s) of special significance:

This John Gootee is identified in the will of his mother, Mary (Lisney) Gootee. (See Appendix C for entire will.)
This John Gootee fits with the age of his father and mother and a location in Accomack County, Virginia.
It was probably this John Gootee in Accomack County, Virginia, who proved this will: 24 Jan 1772 - 31 Mar 1772, will of John Pettit Jr. (nunc) - To son William Pettit. Balance of Estate to wife during her widowhood, then to be divided between my two daughters.
Proved by John Gootee and Betty Taylor. In order of probate: Trophenny Pettit, widow of testator qualified. (Wills and Adminstrations, Accomack County, Virginia, 1663-1800 by Stratton Nottingham, page 678.).

will of his mother, Mary (Lisney) Gowtee, August 20, 1764:

7. John Gootee (a son of Jacob Gootee and Margery Pritchett Wingate)
a. birth date: probably about 1738
b. birth location:
Dorchester County, Maryland
c. death date:
about 04 August 1818 (also see "1818 John Gootee deceased 4 Aug. 1818.", The Note Book of Silas Nicols, from the notes of Miss Ruth Jones, Family Record, Ancestry.com)

i. item(s) of special significance:
Patriot of the American Revolution

John Gouty and family moved to Caroline County, Maryland by the time of the 178 Caroline County, Maryland, census. See 1778 Maryland Census – Caroline County, lists a John Goutee. Per 1778 Census of Maryland compiled by Bettie Stirling Carothers (14423 Eddington Drive, Chesterfield, Missouri 63017). Also see MSA Citation 1419-6-9858 for John Goutee in 1778 Caroline County, Maryland census.
?1778 Caroline Co., MD, Fidelity Oath, John Goutee, Choptank Hundred?
Entry in the 1783 Choptank Hundred/District Census automatically qualifies the individual as a Patriot of the American Revolution according to the Sons of the American Revolution. John Gootee is listed for owning two tracts or parcels of land in Lower Choptank District Hundred in the 1783 Maryland census.

This John Gootee was a son of Jacob Gootee who was the son of Joseph Gootee Senior and his wife first wife Elizabeth Insley.

wills – summary: John Gowty of Caroline County, Maryland, Daughter: Rhoda Cannon, widow of Joshua Cannon; Son: Abel Gowty; Daughter: Britanna Willis; Son: Pritchel Gowty; Daughter: Centhea Nichols, widow of John Nichols; Daughter: Vility Stevens; Grandson: James Gowty; Granddaughter: Mary Gowty; Granddaughter: Lucretia Gowty; Grandson: John Stevens Gowty; Gives all to 4 grandchildren and appoints William Stevens to watch out for them until they come of age.

We know Pritchett Gouty was born 04 July 1765 so he probably should have been age 45 at the time of the 1810 census, but he appears in the 26 to 44 age listing.
If Zachariah was born about 1778, he would have been about 32 years old in 1810.
John Gouty makes no mention of a wife in his will. He appointed William Stevens as sole executor. It is my opinion that he was living with Zachariah Gouty at the time of the 1810 census. There is a Wm. Stevans listed in the 1810 as age 26 to 44 with two males up to 10 years of age, one female up to 10 years of age, one female 16 to 26, and one female 26 to 45. It is likely this William Stevens was the person appointed as sole executor of the John Gouty estate.
The 1820 census for Caroline County, Maryland, only lists Abel Gowty, James Gowly(probably Gowty), and Thomas Gowty. John Gootee and his wife were both death by 1820. Pritchett Gouty and his family had moved to Ohio before 1820.
Need to research the following statement:

In 1696 Alexander Johnson left 100 acres to his daughter Elizabeth, who later married Joseph Gootee Junior. (Volume 2, Virginia’s Eastern Shore by Ralph T. Whitelaw). The bequest by Johnson to his daughter Elizabeth had been entailed and they had no right to sell the land.

(“Joseph Gouty Junior and Elizabeth Johnson had a daughter, Mary Gootee, who married Levin Taylor”. (Barbara Massey Horsman, Massey Family of Worcester County, Maryland, Heritage Books, Inc., Bowie, MD, 1995)
In 1785, Mary Taylor, widow, and son Jesse and his wife, Rachel, sold 37 acres to William Massey.

The majority of the Gootees from Dorchester County and Caroline County, MD are descended from Joseph’s son, Jacob and his offspring, Capewell, Jabez, Shadrack. Jacob’s son, John, changed his name to Gowty and moved to the Caroline County area. Around 1800, the Gootees started to move and claim land in the west and in the South. For instance, Andrew Gootee’s grandsons, Joseph Wheland and George S. Gootee, accompanied by Joseph’s family, decided to go to Kentucky and and settled near Springfield, Washington Co, Ky. Consequently, there are many Gootee/Goatee/Gowty/Gouty families now located primarily in Maryland, Delaware, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

The second son, Joseph, was born in France circa 1661 and died in 1716 in Maryland. Joseph was married two times. His first wife was Elizabeth Insley, daughter of Andrew and Elizabeth Insley. This union produced eight (8) known children. The sixth, Jacob Gootee, born circa 1696 and died 9 March 1779. Jacob married Margery Wingate (or Pritchett), circa 1721. No documentation has been found to determine the exact last name. Jacob was a Revolutionary War Veteran.
(The third child of John and Margaret Gootee was Judith Gootee who was born in Maryland circa 1673. Judith married John Cole in 1691 and at that time they were given fifty acres of land called, "Graveling", by her parents.)
John Gootee and his brother Joseph, were naturalized along with two of Josephs sons, Joseph and John on 22 May 1695.

Records at Hall of Records in Maryland, L213, f307, 1662, reads: "Then came Antonie LeCompte and enters a right vist (namely) for his wife Easter, John Gooteer, Andrew Guidrey, and Ambrose for which he demands a warrant having sworn as usually on a warrant and to the Surveyor Generall to layout for this LeCompte, 200 acres of land. Dated the 21st of February 1662. Return Last August last."
So, evidently my ancestor John
Gootee (Gautier) was in Maryland in February 1662.
According to another document at the Archives of Maryland, LWH&L pg 48,19 April 1671, John Gottee and wife Margaret and Stephen Besson, born in Kingdom of France, were naturalized.
Can anyone help me find the area of France my ancestors were from ? I have searched records and paid for info from France but have never been able to pinpoint where in France thay were from.
Obviously John
Gootee met LeCompte in England as that is where the ship departed from.
Any help with this problem will be most welcomed. Any leads appreciated.





Seeking info on the first three daughters of Joseph GOOTEE, b. ca 1660 in France and d. 1716 in Maryland. Married (1) Elizabeth Insley, dau of Andrew and Margaret JONES INSLEY on 25 Feb 1689/90 in Maryland.
