Jacob Gooding (died c.1791) lived in Fairfax County. In Ledger A, 324, GW recorded on 2 Sept. 1770 “20 Maryland Dollars let you [Gooding] have myself to buy a Hanger &ca”; and he recorded receiving from Gooding in October 1770 “one Cutteau” [couteau] worth £6.
Gooding and Robert Adam received a lease on 2 April 1772 from Charles Alexander for an unspecified amount of land on Four Mile Run. The lease was for the lives of Jacob Gooding and Robert Adam and Gooding’s son, John Gooding. The hundred acres Gooding wanted to lease from GW was part of the land that GW had bought from James and George Mercer. Evidently nothing came of Gooding’s venture.
