  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Goshen 
  (1.)  A  district  in  Egypt  where  Jacob  and  his  family  settled,  and 
  in  which  they  remained  till  the  Exodus  (Gen.  45:10;  46:28,  29, 
  31,  etc.).  It  is  called  "the  land  of  Goshen"  (47:27),  and  also 
  simply  Goshen"  (46:28),  and  "the  land  of  Rameses"  (47:11;  Ex 
  12:37),  for  the  towns  Pithom  and  Rameses  lay  within  its  borders; 
  also  Zoan  or  Tanis  (Ps.  78:12).  It  lay  on  the  east  of  the  Nile, 
  and  apparently  not  far  from  the  royal  residence.  It  was  "the 
  best  of  the  land"  (Gen.  47:6,  11),  but  is  now  a  desert.  It  is 
  first  mentioned  in  Joseph's  message  to  his  father.  It  has  been 
  identified  with  the  modern  Wady  Tumilat  lying  between  the 
  eastern  part  of  the  Delta  and  the  west  border  of  Palestine.  It 
  was  a  pastoral  district,  where  some  of  the  king's  cattle  were 
  kept  (Gen.  47:6).  The  inhabitants  were  not  exclusively 
  Israelites  (Ex.  3:22;  11:2;  12:35,  36). 
 
  (2.)  A  district  in  Palestine  (Josh.  10:41;  11:16).  It  was  a 
  part  of  the  maritime  plain  of  Judah,  and  lay  between  Gaza  and 
  Gibeon. 
 
  (3.)  A  town  in  the  mountains  of  Judah  (Josh.  15:51).
