Joseph Goddard was an architect active in the mid- to late-19th century. He is particularly noted as being part of a long father to son line of architects working in Leicester, England.
Goddard was born on 11 April 1840 in Leicester, the son of local architect Henry Goddard (born 1792, died 1868), to whom he was later articled, and his wife, Ann, nee Gardiner (born 1806, died 1885). Goddard died on 10 October 1900 at Manor House in Newton Harcourt, just south of Leicester, his place of residence since 1898.
