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, esq. third son of Robert Goodricke, esq. of Nortingley, with a Lincolnshire heiress. Miss Strickford.[1]

'In Lincolnshire the Goodrickes flourished for six subsequent generations, until Henry Goodricke, esq. (third and youngest son of William Goodricke, esq.—brother of Thomas Goodricke (1494–1554), Lord Bishop of Ely, and Lord Chancellor of England of [Edward VI—purchased Ribstone 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, esq. of Ribstone, in Yorkshire, who was born, 1524. was high-sheriff of Yorkshire in 1579, and died 1581. He married Clare, daughter of Richard Norton, of Norton-Comers, in Yorkshire Esq; and was succeeded by his eldest son:[2]

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 [disambiguation needed ], of Methly, 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.
