The eldest son, George (d. 1602) had some difficulty in paying off the enormous debts inherited from his father (See Historical MSS. Commission, Hatfield MSS. IV, pp. 501, 515 and passim, V and VI passim. For extracts from these, see Captain Francis Goring, op. cit.) and he tried unsuccessfully to purchase his father's office from Sir Robert Cecil. His property was valued by the sheriff and most of the revenue appropriated to the Queen's use throughout his life time, though he retained a small allowance and was provided for as a Gentleman Pensioner.
He was one of the executors of Lady Dacre from whose husband he had purchased Danny and in her will (Danny MS. 1126, fo. 122.) She bequeathed to him household goods and furniture at Danny.
By his marriage to Anne, the daughter of Henry Denny of Waltham Abbey in Essex and of Cheshunt in Hertfordshire, he had five sons and four daughters.
Of his four daughters, Anne married Anthony Stapley the regicide, Sibell married Laurence Ashburnham of Guestling and Mary Sir William Elliott.
George died in 1602, leaving his property to his wife until his son, George, came of age. (Will of George Goring P.C.C. 44 Montague.)
(Notes to The Danny Archives, East Sussex Record Office.)
Goring is only mentioned once in the extant parliamentary journals. On 31 Oct. he informed the House that Mr. Goddard Pemberton, elected for Lewes with him, had chosen to sit for Peterborough.
