Biography

In April 1397, two months after the dissolution of his only known Parliament, Goldston served as a juror at an inquisition ad quod damnum held at Chichester. A parishioner of the city church of St. Olave, he was present in June that year when Bishop Rede made his visitation. He again served on a jury in the following summer, this time at the assizes at Lewes in a suit regarding the ownership of property in Chichester, but was committed to prison with his fellows for accepting bribes, there to remain until he paid a fine.

C143/427/13; Reg. Rede (Suss. Rec. Soc. viii), 106; JUST 1/1510 m. 8. He was perhaps the father of Philip Goldston, parson of the same church of St. Olave up to Feb. 1424; CPR, 1422-9, p. 184.
