Good Man (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Good Man

A word of various imports, according to the place where it is spoken: in the city it means a rich man; at Hockley in the Hole, or St. Giles’s, an expert boxer; at a bagnio in Covent Garden, a vigorous fornicator; at an alehouse or tavern, one who loves his pot or bottle; and sometimes, though but rarely, a virtuous man.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
