It definitely says Wolworth, but I wonder if the writer might have been confused.

Walworth is/was in Surrey, and strictly speaking it would have been incorrect to give the location as London

I agree. While itís clearly written Wolworth, I think it's very unlikely that Walworth or Newington would be described as London in 1614/15. This marriage was at St Mary Stratford Bow, very close to the City of London. And as John was recorded in the marriage register as a Gouldsmith, the City seems more likely.

This could be Johnís apprenticeship in 1604 ...

Boyd thinks it's the same man - see Inhabitants of London, on FindMyPast, if you have access.

The 1610 record nails it, thanks. I was about to post this as well. Also gives his parents & confirms the apprenticeship occupation & the Staffordshire link.

Boyd claims he died in 1658, without issue, buried at Highgate, and there is a PCC will.

ADDED - also a PCC will for his widow Rebecca, 1660.
