William was born about 1640 in England. He may very well be the William Gosnell who was transported from England to Virginia by Thomas Dodson who received a grant of 1200 acres in Northumberland Co., Va. in 1658 for the transport of 24 persons including one  William Gosnell.Our William was one of the nine servants who was transported to Maryland from Lower Norfolk County, VA in 1665 by Cornelius Howard.15 Dec. 1677 William "Gosling" proved his right to a 50 acre grant of land " for service performed in the Province" Probably in the Provincial Militia" The location of this land is not noted, but it probably located in Anne Arundel County and very possible it was  the land that his sons sold in 1724. William was probably not married prior to his marriage to Sarah Hills daughter of William Hills & Elizabeth Griniff in 1688. Sarah was step daughter to Maurice Baker
