Various spellings of the Gouty surname are used in source documents in the Maryland Archives. For purposes of this genealogical research and reporting, the Gouty form of the name will be used except where an actual source document is presented.
There were numerous individuals named John Gouty, Joseph Gouty, and Jacob Gouty connected with the Gouty Genealogy in Dorchester and Caroline counties in Maryland and with Accomack County in Virginia in the 1600s, 1700s, and early 1800s. Please see Appendix A to help identify these various Gouty family members.

The author has found only two Gouty family members with the first name of Jacob. The subject of this presentation is the Jacob Gootee was a son of Joseph Gootee Senior. A second Jacob Gouty was the son of Joseph Gouty Junior. This second Jacob Gouty is referred to in various places as Jacob Gouty Junior.

We will first briefly discuss Jacob Gouty, the son of Joseph Gouty Senior, and then try to clarify information about Jacob Gouty Junior who was the son of Joseph Gouty Junior. Afterwards, we will return to and more fully discuss Jacob Gouty, the son of Joseph Gouty Senior.

Joseph Gootee Senior, planter, made a will dated January 4, 1716, and it was probated March 13, 1716 (Maryland, Dorchester County, Wills 14, 319) See Appendix B for complete version of the will of Joseph Gouty Senior.
The will of Joseph Gouty Senior indicates the following facts:
1. His wife’s name was Ann.
2. His dwelling plantation was called Callais.
3. His dwelling plantation to wife Ann during her widowhood or until death, then to son Jacob Gouty, to be delivered to him at the age of sixteen years, except
4. If Jacob attains age of 16 and Ann is still living, then to Jacob when Ann dies.
5. All of personal estate to wife Ann during her widowhood, but if she remarries, she only receives 1/3 of personal estate, and remainder to Jacob upon attainment of age 16. If Ann is still unmarried when Jacob is 16, then Ann and Jacob divide equally.
6. Son Andrew to receive 200 acres of land originally called Callais commonly known as the “Lower Landing”. If Andrew has no children, then to son Jacob
7. Son John the Elder all that ridge of land called ?Hall? Ridge and all that land that appertains unto me lying on the south west side of the said Ridge. If no issue, then to son Jacob.
8. Daughter Lucy Gowty land called Chance.
9. John Gouty the Younger Burbrook (Boorbrook) and all the land that appertains unto me betwee said Burbrook and the Blackwater River. If no issue, then to Jacob.
10. Daughters Eliz Shorter, Mary Robinson, Ruth Gowty, Rosannah Gouty, Triphena Gouty, Lucy Gowty and Elenor Gouty each one shilling and no more.
11. Son Joseph Gouty one shilling and no more.
12. Wife Ann as sole executor.
13. Witnesses: William Evans Junior, John Cole, William W. Shorter

Andrew Gouty, brother of Jacob and son of Joseph Senior, was the father of Jacob Gouty Junior. The will of Andrew Gouty, made 19 January 1774, does not mention a son named Jacob Gouty because Jacob died before his father about 1767.

Jacob Gootee was born ca.1691-6, the sixth of eight children of Joseph Gootee Senior and Elizabeth Insley.

437 ix. Margery Pritchett, died Unknown; married (1) Wingate; married (2) Jacob Gootee Abt. 1721. Margery Pritchett was born in 1701.


Jacob Gootee married Margery Pritchett, who had first married a Wingate. Margery Pritchett was a sister of Phunback Pritchett.
Jacob Gootee and Margery Pritchett Wingate were the parents of John Gootee.
Phunback Pritchett, brother of Margery Pritchett, was the father of Elizabeth Pritchett.
Elizabeth Pritchett married John Gootee.
John Pritchett, father of Margery Pritchett and Phunback Pritchett, was the grandfather of both John Gootee and his first wife Elizabeth Pritchett.

Jacob Goutee died before 13 March 1767, the date of the final accounting for his estate. (Dorchester County, Balances of Final Distributions, Liber 5, folio 20. Solomon Trego and Rosannah, his wife, are listed as administrators of Jacob Goutee late of Dorchester County deceased. John Goutee and George Cole are listed as sureties. The widow, unnamed, received 1/3 of the balance. The three children of the deceased received the remainder.
Rosannah Goutee was a sister of Jacob Goutee and she married Solomon Trego at some point in time. Solomon and Rosannah were the administrators for Jacob Goutee according to this court record. We assume the John Goutee mentioned in the record as a surety was the son of Jacob Goutee.
John Gowtee was the administrator for Jacob Bramble, deceased, per an account dated 10 June 1760 found at Prerogative Court Accounts, Dorchester County, 1718-1777, SM7, Book 44 Pages 290-292, 1759-1760, SR 13858-1, Roll 56-1, MSA SM7-54. “The account of John Gowtee administrator of all and singular the goods and chattles rights and credits of Jacob Bramble late of the county aforesaid deceased.” Also, “Of money paid by this accountant to the deceased’s brother Jacob Gowtee for funeral expenses as by his account proved and receipt appears . . . 2 0 0.”
“On the 10th day of June Anno Domini 1760 John Gowtee the forgoing accountant made oath on the Holy Evangels of Almighty God that the forgoing account as here stated to the best of his knowledge is just and true which thereupon after due examination is passed by. Sureties are John Harper and Bartholomew Woolford. James Auld D Comry D County Representatives unknown if any – Final Account.”
The above court record indicates that Jacob Goote was “the deceased’s brother”. This leads one to believe that Jacob Gowtee was a “brother-in-law” to Jacob Bramble, i.e., was married to a sister of Jacob Bramble. The sister of Jacob Bramble would be at least the second wife of Jacob Gowtee. The date of their marriage was before 10 June 1760.

In the presence of us John Gowtee
The John Gowtee who was a witness to this transaction may have been John Gootee the Elder, a son of Joseph Gootee Senior and his first wife, Elizabeth Insley. This John was probably born in the early 1690s and died about May 1748. However, he probably was in Accomack County, Virginia by 1738. He died there in 1748. John Gootee the Younger was probably born about 1714 to 1717 and would perhaps be about 22 years old in 1738. He remained in Dorchester County so he may be the signer of this Bill of Sale.
The most likely witnesses to this document were George Griffith who was the father of Mary Griffith who married Joseph Gootee Junior. Joseph Gootee Junior had a son John Gootee born in 1710. This George Griffith and this John Gootee seem to be the most likely candidates for the witnesses on this land record. See Liber 28, folio 329, 13 July 1750, George Griffith, Dorchester County, Wills, “To daughter Mary Gowtee, daughter Eliza, Sheild, George Gowtee, and John Fram, 1 sh. sterl apiece”.
Also see Liber 31, folio 300, 20 April 1761, GRIFFITH, GEORGE, [Dorchester Co.]
    To each of my sister Mary Gowtees chldn. a cow calf or yearling.
    To my bro. John Griffith, all my negroes [not named], horses, & cattle.
    Witn: John Trippe, Jr., William Whit, William Lewis.
    28 April 1761, all 3 witn. depose that on 20 April 1761 they heard Geo. Grifith, then sick, now d., say all his sister's chldn. should have a cow calf or yearling &
then sd. John Trippe said I suppose you'll leave your negroes, horses, & cattle to your bro. Jonny, to which he answered yes.
    The aforegoing dep. were taken in the presence of Joseph Gowtee, who mar. decd.'s sister.


There are only five possibilities as to the father of John Gootee who was the father of Pritchett Gootee: Joseph Gootee Junior, Andrew Gootee, Jacob Gootee, John the Elder, and John the Younger. This is due to the fact that all Gootee surname descendants came through Joseph Gootee Senior and these five were the only sons of Joseph Gootee Senior.
Andrew Gootee did not have a child named John Gootee. Andrew was born about 1698 and died about 1774. The will of Andrew Gootee does not mention a John Gootee.
Joseph Gootee Junior was born about 1692 in Dorchester County, Maryland, and died in 1728 in Accomack County, Virginia. He had a son John Gootee who was born in 1710. The will of Joseph Gootee Junior does not mention any children except his daughters Elizabeth and Mary. It does mention his brother John Gootee (presumably the Elder and not the Younger).
John Gootee the Elder probably was born in the early 1690s and died by 31 May 1748 per the administration of his will in court. This John Gootee lived in Accomack County, Virginia, and it would seem reasonable that any children of his would live there as well.
John Gootee the Younger was born about 1714 to 1717 and died by 1764. He apparently was born in Dorchester County and died in Dorchester County. Two land records appear to identify him as they are in the name of John Goutee Jr.: Hazard and Second Chance, both dated 03 July 1761.
Jacob Gootee who was born about 1699 and died in 1779. At the time of Jacob’s death in 1779, the John Gootee who is supposed to be the son of Jacob, would have been about 41 years old if he indeed was born about 1738. It seems very reasonable that a son aged 41 years of age would be the accountant for his father’s estate administration.

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.

of his parents)
c. death date: about 31 May 1748 (per will)
d. death location: Accomack County, Virginia (per will)

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.

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:

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.

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.

Maryland conducted an extraordinary census in 1776 [that] listed everyone, male and female, adult and child, by name and included their age. People are listed by the "Hundred" (a political, military, and census subdivision of a county) in which they lived, so it's possible to locate them within a certain part of the county. Unfortunaty, this census does not list all counties or all Hundreds within counties. It is also, unfortunately, not organized by family but is simply a list of males and a separate list of females. Other useful records of the time include a list of militia members as of 1776, a tax list of 1777, lists of signers of the Loyalty Oaths of 1778, and another census of 1778, taken together to separate Tories from Whigs, and another tax list of 1783, taken to finance the War.

Gootee (X)

Patent Liber WC2, Folio 84, shows Margaret Gootee "Service 1666, wife of John and John granted warrant for wife's service."

Chapter I of the 1671 Act of the Maryland Assembly naturalized John Gootee and Margaret his wife who were born in France. Chapter Ten of the 1695 Acts naturalized John and Joseph Gootee and John and Joseph Gootee sons of the said Joseph.

On March 16, 1677, a 100 acre tract of land was laid out for John Gootee. The tract was named "Canta" and it was located on the west side of Fising Bay adjoining Roasting Ear Point. On February 12, 1680, a 450 acre tract called "Callis" was surveyed for him; it was located on the western side of the Blackwater River.

On May 30, 1690, John Gootee, Sr., and Margaret his wife deeded to John Gootee, Jr., several tracts of land including "Insley's Point," "Bowbunck," and "Callis.:

On May 4, 1699, John Gootee, Jr., made his will and it was probated August 7, 1699. He devised all of his real estate to his father and mother, John and Margaret Gootee. His father, John Gootee, was named as executor.



Joseph Gootee, Sr., planter, made a will dated January 4, 1716, and it was probated March 13, 1716 (Wills 14, 319). The abstract of his will shows that he devised "Callis" his dwelling plantation to his wife, Ann. It also named John, his eldest son, and sons Jacob, Andrew, Joseph and youngest son John. The abstract also named daughters Elizabeth Shorter, Mary Robinson, Ruth, Rosannah, Triphena, Lucy and Elinor.

In 1691 John Gootee, Sr., and his wife Margaret had deeded "Graveling" to their son-in-law and daughter, John and Judith Cole.

INSLEY (129)

On June 11, 1669, a 50 acre tract of land on Hungar River was surveyed for Andrew Insley; it was called "Insleys Chance." Patent Record, Liber 6, Folio 27, shows that Andrew Insley was transported into the Province of Maryland in 1669 and was in service until 1667. He married Margaret Jones whom he transported in 1668 (Pat. L11 F507).

Dorchester Land Record 5 OLD 125 dated November 19, 1698, names Andrew Insley and Elizabeth, his wife. Apparently, Andrew married a second time. In deed 5 OLD 125 Andrew and Elizabeth transferred property to their son-in-law, Michael Todd, cordwayner alias shoemaker, and their daughter Margaret Todd, his wife. This same deed named Joseph Goutey (Gootee), son-in-law of Andrew and Elizabeth.

In Dorchester Land Record 2 OLD 163 dated July 13, 1722, Mary Insley, daughter of Andrrew Insley, is shown as the mother of George Hooper.

Andrew Insley made a will dated April 14, 1699, which was probated August 2, 1699. In the abstract of his will he named his wife, Elizabeth, sons James and William; daughter Mary; son-in-law Michael Todd and his wife Mary (probably intended to be Margaret).

GRIFFITH (XX)

In 1684 a 200 acre tract called "Griffiths Chance" was surveyed for Henry Griffith; it was located on the west side of Cone Creek (Nanticoke Creek). He later had several additional tracts patented.

Dorchester Land Record 5 OLD 140 dated September 1, 1699, shows that Henry Griffith married Elizabeth Tassell, the widow of Francis Tassell.

Dorchester Land Record 5 OLD 108 dated February 1, 1697/8 sows that Henry Griffith had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Walter Cemey.

Henry Griffith, planter of Dorchester County, made a will dated February 22, 1708, which was probated August 9, 1709. In his will he named sons Samuel, John, and Abraham; daughter Sarah Griffith (Wills Part II - 12, 223).
