  • The Goodrich family in America. A genealogy of the descendants of John and William Goodrich of Wethersfield, Conn., Richard Goodrich of Guilford, Conn., and William Goodridge of Watertown, Mass., together with a short historical account of the family in England, the origin of the name, a description of Goodrich castle etc (1889)
  • The following, copied by Com. Casper F. Goodrich, U.S.N., from a genealogical tree extending from 1465 to 1819, in possession of James Pitt Goodrich of Egarth House, Egarth, Denbighshire, England, corroborates the foregoing and gives some additional details:
  • "As early as 1465, Edward Goodrich of Kirby, Lincolnshire, baronet, married Jane, dau. and heiress of James Williamson, Esq. John Goodrich, first child of Edward and Jane (Williamson) Goodrich of Kirby, born 1485; married, 1507, Katherine Dymoke; was high-sheriff of Lincolnshire, 1535. Henry, second child of Edward and Jane Goodrich, born 1487; married, 1508, Margaret, dau. of Christopher Rawson; bought Ribston Manor, Yorkshire, from Charles Brandon, duke of Suffolk. Thomas, third child of Edward and Jane Goodrich, born 1489; bishop of Ely, etc. Katherine, fourth child of Edward and Jane, born 1492; married Sir Thomas Mussenden.

  • "Richard, son of Henry and Margaret (Rawson) Goodrich, born 1510; married Clara, dau. of Richard Conyers, Esq., of Norton Conyers.
  • "Richard of Ribston, son of Richard and Clara (Con-

  • " Sir Henry Goodrich, knight and baronet, son of Richard and Muriel (Evans) Goodrich, married Jane, dau. of Sir John Savile, baronet of the exchequer. John Goodrich, second son of Richard and Muriel (Evans) Goodrich, married ______ and emigrated to Virginia in 1635, and with him came Henry, Richard, John, and William."
  • Mrs. C. Stark Newell of Goshen, N.Y., only child of Dr. Chas. S. J. Goodrich of New York City, found among his papers after his decease the following document, given him by Judge Charles Goodrich of Pittsfield, Mass., who was the grandson of William,1 given to the doctor on his 11th birthday by the grandfather then 93 years of age. The document is as follows: "A man by the name of Goodrich married the Duke of Marlboro's sister. By her he had two sons: John, who was named for the duke, and William. The father died, and his brother brought John and William to New England. Not long after, the duke became childless, and sent over for John to return and become heir to his estates. John embarked for England, but died on the passage. The uncle purchased a farm for William in Wethersfield, Conn. This was about the year 1640." The only proof to be offered in support of the validity of this document is its internal evidence. It was made by David,2 who was nine years of age when his father died, of sufficient age to remember it, if heard, from his father's own lips; therefore it can not be traditional, nor can it be a forgery, for it was given by father to son, and at the same time it carries the record of both families of William1 and David2 which record is true in every particular; hence not a forgery.

Goodricke baronets

The Baronetcy of Goodricke of Ribston was created in the Baronetage of England by King Charles I on 14 August 1641 for his loyal supporter John Goodricke of Ribston, Yorkshire. He represented Yorkshire in the Cavalier Parliament from 1661 to his death.

The family was originally of the county of Somerset, and from there moved into Lincolnshire, upon the marriage of Henry Goodricke, third son of Robert Goodricke, of Nortingley, with a Lincolnshire heiress, Miss Strickford.[1]

In Lincolnshire the Goodrickes flourished for six subsequent generations, until Henry Goodricke, (third and youngest son of William Goodricke, —brother of Thomas Goodricke (1494–1554), Lord Bishop of Ely, and Lord Chancellor of England of Edward VI— purchased Ribston and other estates, in Yorkshire, from Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk in 1542.[1][2]

Henry Goodricke married Margaret, daughter and co-heiress of Sir Christopher Lawson, knt. of London, and dying in 1556, was succeeded by his eldest son:[1]

Richard Goodricke, of Ribston, in Yorkshire, who was born in 1524. He was High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1579, and died in 1581. He married Clare, daughter of Richard Norton, of Norton Comers, in Yorkshire and was succeeded by his eldest son:[2]

Richard Goodricke, who was born in 1560 and was also High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1591. He married Meriol, daughter of William, Lord Eure, and dying in 1601, was succeeded by his eldest son:[1]

who according to John Burke writing in 1844 was Sir John Goodricke, knt. who married Jane, daughter of Sir John Saville, of Methley, in Yorkshire, knt. was succeeded by his son Sir John Goodricke, 1st Baronet;[1]

but according to Thomas Wotton writing in 1741 the 1st baronet's father had a given name of Henry and not John and give the following details:[3] Sir Henry Goodricke, knt. who was born in 1580 and died in July 1641. He married Jane, the daughter of Sir John Savile of Methley in Yorkshire, knt., one of the Barons of the Exchequer, (and his second wife Mary daughter of John Robison of Ryther,[4] ) who at length was heiress to her brother of the whole blood, Sir Henry Savile, Bart. There were twelve children by this marriage, of which were three daughters, Jane, and Elizabeth, who died unmarried, and Mary, married to Richard Hawksworth, of Hawksworth, in Yorkshire. Esq; and nine sons, but only three survived their father, viz. Sir John, his eldest, at his death. 2. Savile Goodricke, Esq; who died at Vienna, aged 32; and, 3. Sir Francis, who married Hester, the daughter of Peter Warburton, of the Grange, in Cheshire, Esq; but died without issue, in August 1674, at Durham, where he was chancellor.


John Goodricke of Ribstone Hall (1617–1670), son on of Sir John (or Henry) Goodricke and Jane, was created a baronet on 14 August 1641. He supported the Royalist cause during the English Civil War. After the Civil War he sat as an Member of Parliament for the Cavalier Parliament. He was married twice. First to Catharine, daughter and heiress of Stephen Norcliff, esq. by whom he had a son Henry who in 1670 succeeded to the Baronetcy. Sir John second marriage was to Elizabeth, Viscountess-dowager Fairfax, by whom he had another son.[1]

Henry the second Baronet represented Boroughbridge 1673–1705. The fifth Baronet was Member of Parliament for Pontefract 1774–1780 and for Ripon 1782–1789. The seventh Baronet bequeathed in 1833 the Ribston estate to his business partner who sold it in 1836 (see Holyoake-Goodricke Baronets). His successor as eighth Baronet was his distant cousin, a grandson of the fourth Baronet. On his death without issue the Baronetcy was extinct. RICHARD GOODRICKE,(1) was High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1574. He married Clare or Clara, daughter of Richard Norton, of Norton Conyers, Esquire.

Richard Goodricke was buired at Ribston Hall. His arms, impaling those of his wife, with the supporters, two naked boys and the motto "Reien sen Deiu" (with out God nothing) are still on the south wall of the chapel at Ribston.

  • In the Inquisition post mortem taken at Wetherby, Co. York, April 10th 1582, after the death of Richard Goodrick Esq., it is stated that he was seised of the manors of Hunsingore and Great Ribston, Walshford, Cattall, Grewelthorpe, Little Ribston, lands in Calthorpe, Plompton, Kippax, and Thorescrosse, etc. and the rectory of Hunsingore and advowson of the church there.
  • Also, that he died January 8th 1581\2 and Richard Goodricke, gentleman, is his son and next heir, and aged, at the time of his fathers death 22 years and more. Other estates bequeathed to him and his heirs would have reverted to the elder branch of the family.

According to " Flower's Visitation," 1564, Richard Goodricke was "heir by order of Law, by a Covenant made by his father to the said Richard his son," which indicates the probability of a separate deed having been made confirmatory of the testamentary settlement of his estate made by Henry Goodricke.[5]
