John Goodman (b.ca. 1637; d.?). Winecooper.
Resident in the parish of Saint Mary Hill in 1655.
A second winecooper, also named John Goodman, was resident in the parish of Saint Catherine Coleman in 1656 and 1658. This second John Goodman was thirty-two years of age in 1656 and thirty-four years of age in 1658, whereas the John Goodman of Saint Mary at Hill was eighteen in 1655. The signatures of the two John Goodmans are also clearly different.
Evidence from High Court of Admiralty
Eighteen year old John Goodman deposed on July 25th 1655 in the High Court of Admiralty. He was examined in the case of "Travers against Pomeroy and against lighter of about 200 tunns whereof the sayd Pomroy is owner and against any other".
Goodman stated that Canary wine belonging to Gyles Travers was unloaded in January 1655 from the ship the John and Mary (Master: William Webber). The wine was put into a lighter (Master: Thomas Taylor) and carried to Buttolphs Wharf, where the lighter was moored safely and securely all night. The next morning another lighter, with a burthen of eighty tons (Master: one Pomeroy), was moored to a ship at Buttolphs Wharf. This lighter allegedly veered into Taylor's lighter, despite being warned, sunk the lighter's boat and then ran foul of the lighter, breaking her hawser and casting her adrift. As a consequence, one pipe of wine worth £30 was staved in and "utterly lost".
