Henrico County, Virginia

1686 – John Gawin’s former servant – John Marshall:  In 1686 we find John Marshall, a former servant of Mr. John Gawin, of York County, engaged in a game with Joseph Bascom, in which the latter lost a wager of five pounds  sterling, a sum equal in purchasing power to one hundred and twenty-five dollars in American currency, a proof of how far the gambling went even among persons of very moderate means.  In the course of the same year a game took place between Captain Soane and Richard Dearlove, of Henrico county, in which ten puts were played for a stake of fifteen hundred pounds of tobacco. Soane was successful, but as Dearlove refused to pay when called upon, a suit was entered against him in court. 18 In 1690 Allanson Clerk, of the same county, who had won four pounds sterling of Peter Rowlett in a game of put, was thrown out of court because, when the game was played, no sum was placed in the hands of a stakeholder, or regular contract to pay such a sum was drawn up, as required by law to give the betting a legal footing. 19 . . .  16 York County Records, Vol. 1675-84, orig., p. 328.  “York County Records, Vol. 1684-7, p. 144, Va.

He had a son, Shadrack Gowin who was born in 1790 and who married Syntha Inman January 31, 1809 and who remained in Jefferson County. Daniel Gowin had a grandson, Drury Goin, born to Fanny Goin out of wedlock. There were two individuals named Drury Gowin/Goans in Grainger County. One who was born be­fore 1781 was a bondsman for the marriage of Nancy Gowen to James Randolph November 22, 1802. Drury Goans was born in 1793 in Tennessee and was married to Mary Goans August 23, 1817 in Grainger County. She was born in Ten­nessee in 1798. The younger Drury Goans was on the Grainger County tax lists from 1819 to 1828 with Daniel Goan/Gowen. Daniel Goan and Drury Goans were recorded as “white” on all tax lists and census returns. Daniel Goan, born between 1755 and 1758, applied for a Revolu­tionary pension in Campbell County, Tennessee in 1818 and make a supple­mental application in 1820.
