Facts and Events
"John GOODALE, or GOODALL, a wealthy chandler, lived at Great Yarmouth, the famous port of the herring fishery in county Norfolk from about 1613 until his death in 1625. His earlier life had been spent in the smallmarket town of Downham, sometimes called Downham Market, still in Norfolk, but in the far western end of the county and a few miles south of King's Lynn. Although it has not yet been fully proved, he was probably the son of Thomas Goodale, "the elder", and a nephew of Richard Goodale, a tallow chandler of Downham Market who made on 12 July 1587, a will which was proved October 3, 1588...we can presume still further that John had been his uncle's apprentice and later his partner in the chandlery business.
The will of John Goodale was made 25 June, 1625 and proved 24 Sept 1625 by Elizabeth Goodall, executrix, with power reserved to John Goodall, the son, executor.
