States and Counties to research: 


Esau Goeing:  On May 31, 1693, Esau Goeing was indebted to Gawin Corbin.  He was no longer in the county, so the sheriff attached a horse belonging to Esau Goeing to pay the debt.  Also noted was a bridle and saddle of Esau Goeing in the hands of Abraham Smith. Mr. James Ellis confirmed the debt of Esau Goeing to Gawin Corbin.  (83).

It appears that this is the same Esau Goeing who appeared in Talbot County, Maryland, in 1672.  In that case, Anne, the wife of Esau Goeing proved rights to land for service provided in Talbot County, Maryland. Esau Goeing assigned his wife’s rights for her service to John Pitt in Talbot County, Maryland.  (26).  (Note:  This transaction tells us a few things a) Anne Goeing was owed for her service – likely this was an indenture, meaning she arrived at least 4 years earlier (1668 or before). Since she was married, and selling her rights to her service, she was now free.  b) Esau Goeing married Anne Goeing, and as her husband, he was selling her rights due to her for her service.  Since he was contracting and married, he obviously was not under any indenture either – no documents have indicated Esau ever was a servant, nor have any documents indicated when Esau Goeing arrived in the Americas.  He may have been born in the Americas.  c) Relationship to Thomas Going – it appears there “may” be some relationship with Thomas Going.  Both Thomas and Esau appear in records in Talbot County, Maryland about 1671/72.  Both then appear in records in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1693.  This “suggests” they are related in some fashion, but it is unknown how).
