Goode received his early education first in Buckingham, then under T. Bull, a Dissenting minister at Newport Pagnell.

On taking Holy Orders in 1786, he became Curate of Abbots Langley, Hertfordshire; then of St. Ann’s, Blackfriars; and subsequently Rector of the latter, adding thereto one or two lectureships.
