      1636; A statement from the Will of Daniel Vincent, Leatherseller and Merchant Adventurer of London, dated 4 April 1636:
      . . . Delivered by the said Mr Daniell Vincent ____ wit - Jo Skynner, Tho Skynner, Saml Gosse.

      1646-47; several documents related to a dispute between Samuel Gosse, citizen and grocer of London and Robert, Lord Rich, Baron of Leeze (Leighs). Referring to an incident wherein, Samuel Gosse procured the arrest of Lord Rich for failure to pay back loans, over 1000 pounds, he was owing to Gosse. In turn, Samuel Gosse was convicted and imprisoned for unlawful arrest of rich. Gosse was released in short order. It appears that the money owing to Gosse was never paid.

      1647; To desire Concurrence in an Ordinance for making Samuell Gosse One of the King's Waiters [in the Custom House. Agreed to; 17 Sept 1647.
      Be it Ordained, by the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament, That Samuell Gosse, of London, Gentleman, shall have and hold the Office or Place of One of the King's Waiters, in the Port of the City of London . . and also all and singular Vails, Fees, Rewards, Allowances, Profits, and Emoluments whatsoever, to the said Office or Place due . . to be paid by the Customers, Collectors, or Farmers of the Customs and Subsidies . . which said Grant, so prepared, the Commissioners for the Great Seal of England are hereby authorized and required to pass, under the said Great Seal, in usual Form, accordingly."

      1649; Will of Samuell Gosse, Grocer of London; 11 May 1649; Prob 11/208/169.

      1649, July; Rebecca, widow of Sam. Gosse, complains that "there hath not any progresse beene made unlesse to ye unhappiness of yo' petr," her husband's end being probably hastened by the disease he contracted in prison. She begs report to the House . . The citizens [of London] who are members of the Committee for Compounding to state the case. July P Watkins and Moyer, two of them, report that Gosse is dead, having never recovered the weakness contracted in prison, which hastened his end. His widow is unprovided for, saving what is recovered of this debt, which, with interest and charges, is 6,300 [pounds-. The House having so far noticed the injury as that, before they would pass any act for Lord Rich's discharge, they resolved to hear the case, it is reasonable to request them to require the payment thereof out of the 1,500 [pounds] annuity, before confirming their order for remitting the 2,000 [pounds] fine.
