Died: 1775

John Goodwin, Jr., was a successful master buider elected to The Carpenters' Company before 1763 although no Company records prior to the 1760s survive to confirm the date of his membership. Highly respected by his colleagues, Goodwin served on the important price book committee that set rates for carpentry work. He was also appointed trustee for The Company to conduct negotiations leading to the acquisition of the lot and construction of Carpenters' Hall, to which Goodwin was a major contributor. At the time of his death, Goodwin's estate was valued in excess of 2,500 pounds.
