Colonial Tasmanian engraver, amateur photographer, newspaper editor and merchant mariner. As the editor of the Cornwall Chronicle, Goodwin regularly upset his readers and members of the Launceston community with his 'abominably scurrilous' caricatures and drawings.

engraver, amateur photographer, newspaper editor and merchant mariner, was master of the “unlucky” convict ship Kains which arrived at Sydney in March 1831 after a lengthy and troublesome voyage from England lasting 246 days.

Only some of the latter are identified with his initials but almost all the woodcuts are considered to be his work, including The Never Failing Undertaker 1836, which King (p.30) describes as 'the most daring cartoon of the early period’. His first woodcut, accompanying a verse, 'The Sheriff’s Officer’, on the front page of the Cornwall Chroncile on 16 April 1836, was annotated: A piece of wood that bears the cut of the ...
