Unfortunately for Charles, Newcastle was not convinced, noting in the file that The Governor forgets to add to Mr. Good's other qualifications that he is his Son in Law.3
Reverend Good was educated at Cambridge and served as a midshipman in the Royal Navy during the Peninsular War. He was ordained deacon in 1823 and priested in 1824. He died in 1898 at the age of 98.4
