[Fairfield 1:228-9] NG is first seen at Milford, whence he soon moved to Fairfield. Married 1) between 1648 and 1655, Martha, widow of Edmund Harvey. In 1657, Winthrop wrote of Golds wife at Fairfield as suffering from hypocondraiaca. Perhaps she did not long survive; Martha's name has not been found in Fairfield records folowing her marriage to Gold, though he was later recorded as responsible for the portions of her children.
When Mrs Mary Benfield was examined in 1665 at the house of the magistrate NG, she was questioned privately by Mrs Sarah Gold and Mrs Beatrice Risden. In 1682, Joseph Banks gave 10 pounds by will tomrs Sarah Gold Sr, making Maj Gold one of the overseers. In September 1692, Sary Gold testified with Ann Wakeman (widow of Rev Samuel Wakeman) in the witchraft trials. No further reference is found and when NG made his will in 1694, he had no wife living.
