Goble Ancestors

Some researchers believe that WILLIAM GOBLE and JOHN GOBLE were brothers. JOHN GOBLE was born 1536 in France and died 1609 in West Sussex, England. He apparently left France in 1560 to avoid religilious persecution and settled in England. If WILLIAM and JOHN were really brothers and JOHN didn't leave France until 1560, then it's reasonable to assume that WILLIAM would have been born in France as well. Yet, all research I've seen points to WILLIAM being born in England. Was WILLIAM really born in England or was he born in France? Both WILLIAM'S and JOHN'S descendants are born in the same area in England, both have sons named WILLIAM and JOHN and their descendants travel to the same area in Massachusetts about the same time. It does seem to point to the two being brothers. Does anyone have any evidence to back this up?

Generation No. 2

THOMAS GOBLE (WILLIAM GOBLE1) was born in 1589 (christened January 4, 1590) in Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England and died between November 30 and December 11, 1657 in Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. He married ALICE BROOKMAN, November 5, 1619 in Aldingbourne, West Sussex, England. She was born about 1600 in Sussex, England and died after 1657 in Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

Notes for THOMAS GOBLE
THOMAS immigrated to Massachusetts from England in 1634.
As far as I know, Thomas Goble was the first Goble in this country (of my line of Goble's). He settled in Charlestown, Massachusetts in 1634 but moved to Concord at some point and that is where he died. There is some disagreement as to his wife's maiden name. I believe it was Alice Brookman; others believe it was Mousall. There is a marriage record showing Thomas Goble and Alice Brookman being married November 5, 1619 at Aldingbourne. There is also a baptismal record for Thomas dated 1590 that appears to show him to be the son of William Goble of Westergate. Assuming Thomas was a baby when he was baptized, that would have made him 29 at the time of his marriage and 67 when he died in 1657.

Thomas was a wealthy and respected person in Charlestown and in Concord as well. His house in Concord was still standing in 1904 but I'm uncertain if it still stands today.
