Early Origins of the Godolfan family
Cornwall at Godolphin, a church district, in the parish of Breage, union of Helston, hundred of Kerrier. "This place, anciently called Godolcan, has been long celebrated for its tin-mines. It gave name to the family of Godolphin, who were its lords in the time of William the Conqueror, and of whom Sir Francis Godolphin, by his perseverance and success in mining, increased the customs more than £10,000 per annum in the reign of Elizabeth. Sidney, son of Sir William Godolphin, Bart., a distinguished statesman, was in 1689 created Baron Godolphin, of Rialton, which title, having become extinct, was revived in 1832. An old mansion on the Godolphin estate, belonging to the Duke of Leeds, is now occupied by a farmer." CITATION[CLOSE]
