Goode, John (b. 1630, d. 1708)
Note: John Goode was born at the Whitsen (or Whitestone or Whitby) estate in northern Cornwall, England, between 1620 and 1630. He went to Barbados between 1643 and 1650, and there he married Frances Mackanuss (or Mackernuss). She was the daughter of either Jacob or William, two brothers who were living in St. Michael, Barbados. John moved to Virginia in 1658. He settled at a plantation on the colonial frontier about for miles from the present site of Richmond, which he named Whitby in memory of his English home. The house at Whitby was the first house built on the James River near Richmond. After the death of his first wife, John married Anne Bennett in 1666. He was no longer young, but they had eleven children. By 1690 Goode had acquired 688 acres of land in Henrico Co. and 2270 acres in Chesterfield Co. He died at Whitby in 1709. The old home was torn down after 1800.

"John Goode the immigrant"
P.30 Will of John Goode, 1709
After his arrival in Virginia, soon settled down into the occupation of a tobacco planter. After the death of his Barbadian wife, he married Anne Bennet, a recent arrival from Holland, who bore him 12 children, some of whom, including his two sons, Thomas and Joseph, were miners in 1708 when his will was drawn up, and were consequently born after 1687.
"Old Virginia Houses Along The James" by Emmie Ferguson Farrar. "WHITBY", the ancestral home of the Goode family in Chesterfield County should be of considerable interest. John Goode, who came to Virginia from England in or about 1650, built Whitby on the James four miles below Richmond, in what is now Chesterfield Co. It was an English type of house, with dormer windows, and chimneys at each end. Horse racing was one of the chief interests and pleasures of the early family of the Goodes in Virginia. The first track in the county was at Whitby. The race horses, too, were a home product. Many racers were bred in Henrico County, especially in that part of it that is now Chesterfield County. John Goode's plantation consisted of five thousand acres. There is a Goode's Creek. Goode's Bridge across the Appomattox River had been destroyed during the Civil War, and some authorities claim that Lee's army forded the river, on the retreat to Appomattox; some suggest that a pontoon bridge was thrown across, but Maude Atkins Joyner says that Goode's Bridge has been rebuilt in time for Lee's army to cross over on it from Chesterfield into Amelia on the way to Appomattox.
John Goode, who built Whitby, was married twice. He raised several sons and daughters. The Goode genealogy, in the Virginia State Library in Richmond, records more than five thousand descendants of John Goode. There are many distinguished citizens among them Col. Robert Goode, of Whitby, led the County Militia against Tarleton's marauding troops during the Revolution. Whitby was burned during the Civil War. From VA Cousins, page 30: Whitby torn down in 1878, traditionally the first house built on the James River. Whitby lies nearly opposite "Powhattan", the seat of the Mayo family, the very place where Captain John Smith had his first interview with the great Indian "Werowance", whose descendants have in several instances intermarried with those of John Goode.
