Joseph Henry Good

Joseph Henry Good was an architect and surveyor active in the late-18th and early- to mid-19th centuries.

He was a pupil of Sir John Soane from 1795 to 1799 and after several commissions, particularly in London, he became, from 1826 to 1857, Surveyor to the Commissioners for Building New Churches and later from, 1829 to 1848, Examining Architect to the Incorporated Church Building Society.

Good was born in 1775 the son of Reverend Joseph Good, a Somerset clergyman. He died on 20 November 1857.

According to Colvin, his most noted architectural work still surviving is that of the Armourers' and Brasiers' Hall on Coleman Street in London (1839-41) which Good designed in a late neo-classical style.
