The Goodwin family is described in a history of Alkerton "The
present Alkerton House may have belonged to the Goodwin
family, another of Alkerton's principal families, since it has
the letters B.G. 1633 on the end wall. The Goodwins, later
found in several north Oxfordshire villages, were settled in
Alkerton in the early 16th century. Thomas Goodwin (d. 1531)
and his son Richard (d. 1560) were both buried in the
churchyard. Thomas was of sufficient standing to leave money
to eight churches, of which Alkerton was one, and his
grandson, another Thomas (d. 1581), left a legacy to the poor
of the village. In the 16th century the Goodwins had two
houses in Alkerton and in 1665 were living in one of the two
largest houses there." (British History Online,
