S S usually means Skinner Street in Godwin's diary (where he ran his bookshop and later lived as well). Belcher and Bovy both appear just this once in the diary. See work notes below

Edwards, engr

Friday, 22 May, 1807

22.5.1807 call on Edwards, engr
Most likely engr was short for engraver (though engineer is possible). The only Edwards engraver I could find active in 1807 was William Camden Edwards (DNB 1777-1855) but he was apparently living in Bungay, Suffolk in 1807 and for most of his life. There was a Humphrey Edwards engineer at 3 Mill-st, Lambeth-walk in 1815 P.O. directory. Richard Edwards printer was at Red Lion-ct, Fleet-st from 1804 and later moved to 6 Crane-ct, Fleet-st till his death in 1829. But probably none of these

Pasley, Charles William

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only):

2.5.1807 breakfast at Coleridge's, w. Pasley
Charles William Pasley (DNB 1780-1861). See Letters of S T Coleridge. Godwin was lucky to catch him off duty between the battle of Maida July 1806 and the siege of Copenhagen August 1807

Polhill

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Wednesday, 6 May, 1807

6.5.1807 call on Polhill
The only mention of Polhill in Godwin's diary. Godwin had received a letter that morning from Lord Holland (Bodleian MS Abinger c.10 f.37-8) concerning Godwin's attempts to raise a loan, so this call may have been relevant to that project.
