James Stanley Goddard (died 1795) was a fur trader established at least by 1761 at Michilimackinac in the Green Bay area of what is now Wisconsin. He was considered to have significant influence with First Nations communities around Lake Michigan. In 1766 Goddard along with Captain James Tute were dispatched by Robert Rogers (1731-1795), the colonial frontiersman, on an expedition that was to parallel to that of Jonathan Carver who had been contracted by Rogers to lead an expedition to find a western water route to the Pacific Ocean, the Northwest Passage. In 1775, Goddard with Charles Langlade (1729-1801), the French fur trader, led a force of First Nations soldiers to the relief of Montreal then held by the rebel Americans. Goddard and his troops arrived at Montreal after the American rebels had retreated.
