Goodwin was one of the earliest clerical supporters of the democratic puritans, and then of the army against the Parliament. His 'Anti-Cavalierisme' (1642) proclaims the need of war to suppress the party 'now hammering England to make an Ireland of it. Ejected from his living for refusing to administer indiscriminately in his parish the baptism and the Lord's Supper, he set up a covenanted community within his parish and set up an independent church in Coleman Street, which had a large following. At the Restoration Goodwin, with John Milton, was ordered into custody on 16 June 1660. He kept out of the way, and at length was placed in the indemnity, among eighteen persons perpetually incapacitated for any public trust. He was named as one of the men who was excluded from holding any state office in the Indemnity and Oblivion Act 1660. He died in the plague year, 1665. ". A Very Scarce title.
