A gardener at Kew from at least 1796 until 1801. Visited India in 1796 to bring back to Kew a collection of plants formed by Christopher Smith. Appointed in 1801 to join Flinders' Investigator voyage as assistant to Robert Brown. Contracted dysentery at Timor, and died off Sydney, 11 June 1803. His collections were incorporated (unacknowledged) in Brown's own. A small number of specimens collected at Kew by William McNab, from plants raised from seed collected by Good during Flinders' voyage, are now in DBN.
