Godfrey was the 3rd son of Edward Miller Mundy by his first wife, Frances Meynell. In 1794 he was appointed Cornet in the 24th Light Dragoons. Later that same year, he was promoted to Lieutenant in the 3rd (King’s Own) Dragoons and by 1797, he attained the rank of Captain. He also served as Aide-de-Camp to Major-General Lord Charles Fitzroy between 1797-1802 and was in Ireland during the rebellion of 1798.
