Sir Henry Goodricke, 2nd Baronet (1642–1705) was the son of Sir John Goodricke, 1st Baronet whom he succeeded in 1670. He inherited the family estate of Ribston Hall in North Yorkshire and in 1674 replaced the old house with a new mansion.

Career[edit]

Sir Henry Goodricke served almost continuously as Member of Parliament for Boroughbridge from 1673 until his death, with the exception of a period spent as British Envoy Extraordinary to Spain to Spain from 1679 to 1683. During the Glorious Revolution of 1688, he acted as the Earl of Danby's lieutenant in the North in support of the revolution and was rewarded by the new regime with the office of Lieutenant-General of the Ordnance, a post which he held until 1702.
