The National Archives site has the PCC wills, as explained on website:
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/wills.htm

Searching for Goodfellow 1500-1700 produces a fair few results all over south/middle/east of England.

However the following three relate to a parish or the alias mentioned in other messages, so might be worth checking out. Wills can be downloaded for 3.70 (last time I used, anyway). So relatively easy to check out from a distance, even if only to eliminate:

Will of Matthias Goodfellowe, Girdler of Saint Lawrence Jewry, City of London
Date range: 16 February 1642 - 16 February 1642
Reference:PROB 11/188/212

Will of John Goodfellow, Gentleman of Saint Lawrence Jewry, City of London
Date range: 22 October 1649 - 22 October 1649
Reference:PROB 11/209/469

Will of John Gilbert alias Goodfellow, Clothier of Saint Olave Southwark, Surrey
Date range: 16 February 1664 - 16 February 1664
Reference:PROB 11/313/211

May be red herrings, but for this time-period you have to check any possible clue, as there are so few of them ....
Good luck!
