Feb 28, 2017 – found this info on a William Gawine in Surry County, Virginia:

Capt Perry intermarried with the executrix of Jeremiah Clements. This land also borders Wm. Thomas’ land. Wits Wm Drummond and Worsham Hosmanden. This is in Surry County, Virginia records. Recorded Nov 10, 1660.
This fits in with the time-line of William Gowin being transported to the head of Ware Creek in York County, Virginia on April 14, 1653 by Mr. William Hoccaday. (Note: William Gowin may have been the son of John Gowing who was transported from Maryland to Northumberland County, Virginia in 1650). See also, the transaction below in 1654 between a William “Gopeinge” (which may be a transcription error), and John King in Surry County, also involved was wit Nich. Perry.
