Richard Goodall

???? - 1792


Executor, creditor and agent or adviser of John Straw of the City of London. He (or possibly his wife) was party to the suit of Goodall v Lynch, arising from the wills of John Straw of the City of London (q.v.) and his wife Katherine Straw (also q.v.): the couple had left their property primarily to their niece Katherine Lynch and her brother Thomas, subject to paying off debts to Richard Goodall. Richard Goodall himself was involved in raising money from John Straw for, and possibly providing loans himself to, the firm of Serocold & Jackson.

  1. The will of Richard Goodall, merchant of Chapel Yard near Spital Square, proved 24/09/1792, contains no reference to Jamaica property or to the Straw family, but is almost certainly the same man: in the will he identified his wife as Susanna, and Mrs Susannah Goodall appeared as 'trustee' of Katherine Shaw in the Accounts Produce for the Barbican estate in St Andrew Jamaica in 1796.
