Richard Goodwin - his identity was of a mystery for a long time. The Richard Goodwin who married Emily Fitzgerald should not be confused with Richard Downing (or Dawiny) Goodwin, born 1834 in Sydney, son of Thomas Fayette Goodwin and Ruth Munro, as Richard Downing Goodwin died aged 2 in 1836 (evidence: family bible, and headstone in Sydney Burial Ground). By Peter Sherlock. 

Latest update: Through DNA matches, we found out that Richard Goodwin's heritage was actually Goodhind!
