George E. Williams, A Genealogy of Some of the Descendants of Richard Goodale of Newbury, Mass. (Hartford, Conn.: author, 1983), 1-6, is a basic genealogy for Richard’s descendants in the male line. The English origin was first developed by Walter Goodwin Davis, “John Goodale of Great Yarmouth,” American Genealogist 22 (1945/6): 17-21. Myrtle Stevens Hyde, “Additions to the Family of Richard¹ Goodale of Salisbury, Massachusetts,” American Genealogist 85 (2011): 134-40, expands upon Davis, but questions the assignment of a maiden name to Richard’s wife.
