This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Jerry D. Wilson, El Cajon, CA

William Goodacre Jr. b.1803 - d.1883

William Goodacre came to America with his father Robeert Goodacre in 1823. He and his father produced 19 drawings that were engraved and published in "Hinton's History and Topography of the United States" in 1831. Thomas Cole also had engravings published in Hinton's History. The New York Historical Society's "Dictionary of Artists in America from 1780 to 1880" records William in America from 1829 - 1835; drawing, teaching and exhibiting with the National Academy of Design in New York City.

Prior to his residence in New York City, William taught drawing in Richmond Virginia. Julia D. Sophronia Snow in her 1935-1939 four -part article "Delineators of the Adams-Jackson American Views" in the magazine "Antiques" recognized that the etchings were variously attributed to Wm. Goodacre, Wm Goodacre Jr, and Robert Goodacre but concluded that all were the same person. She wrote, "What tides have swept the artist's originals whether I should like to know; all traces of them are lost." However, Fiske Kimble in his book on the State Capitol of Virginia attributes a water color of the same in the Valentine Museum to William.

Robert Goodacre returned to England in 1826. William traveled in Europe for a brief period but returned to America. He left America when his father died in 1835 and took over the family business.
