Godwin Diary

Adkins

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Saturday, 11 April, 1807

11.4.1807 M(arshall) calls for Adkins / 11.8.1807 Bow Street, w. Corbet & T(homas) T(urner), warrant ; Jo. H(odgkins) calls : Adkins calls : M(arshall) & T(homas) T(urner) dine : H(odgkins) & Adkins call ; Bow Street
The second entry above seems likely to have been Harry Adkins, police officer Bow-street public office (Holdens directory 1811 and in Old Bailey proceedings 1809 to 1819). So the first entry quite likely referred to him as well. A Harry Adkins was later keeper of Warwick gaol (1830s & 1840s)

Hippisley

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Sunday, 1 March, 1807

1.3.1807 dine at King's w. mrs Hippisley / 3.3.1807 evening mrs Hippisley's, w. King &c / 8.3.1807 dine at Plunket's, w. King, mrs Hippisley &c / 1.4.1807 call on Hippisley; adv. Macarthy / 2.8.1823 Augusts Hippisley calls / 22.1.1825 miss Hippisley calls / 18.3.1825 again / 8.6.1826 Hippisley calls / 22.8.1826 again / 23.8.1826 meet Hippisley / 30.10.1826 miss Hippisley calls / 11.1.1827 miss Hippisley adv. at dinner / 4.6.1828 meet Hippisley / 29.9.1828 meet mrs Hippisley / 24.11.1828 write to mrs Hippisley / 3.7.1829 meet Hippisley

Rossewen

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Tuesday, 3 March, 1807

3.3.1807 Rossewens at mrs Hippisley's
Perhaps an Irish name but I found no trace of it in that spelling

Wolsey

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Tuesday, 3 March, 1807

3.3.1807 at mrs Hippisley's, w. Wolsey / 24.2.1811 Wolsey calls / 25.2.1811 again / 18.3.1811 again

Despite the fame of Cardinal Wolsey this was a rare surname in Godwin's day. Wolseley was more common, and as the guests at mrs Hippisley's were of Irish connections, Sir William Wolseley (1779-1819) 3rd baronet of Carlow who died unmarried, is a possible, but I could find very little about him, and he seems less likely for the three calls in 1811.

Dolland

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Sunday, 8 March, 1807

8.3.1807 dine at Plunket's, w. Dolland
The only example of this name in Godwin's diary. Nearly all the Dollands in directories were of the Dollond optician family (DNB per.1750-1871), very often spelt Dolland. Old Bailey 15.2.1804 Barnard Dollond cheese and ham dealer 89 Strand. The guests at Plunket's were mostly Irish and the name Dolland was not unknown in Ireland but I found no likely candidates.

Munday

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Monday, 12 October, 1801

12.10.1901 chaise w. Philips's : call on Munday, Oxford / 1.4.1807 dcall on Philips; adv. Munday / 10.4.1813 write to Munday / 5.6.1813 call on Munday, Oxford / 1.9.1823 call on Munday

cobb

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Wednesday, 1 April, 1807

1.4.1807 call on Philips (adv. Cobb) / 10.8.1807 Cobb sends / 20.2.1809 call on Cobb / 18.11.1815 call on Cobb, cheese-monger / 29.10.1828 sup at Hodget's, w. Rhodes Cobb

Supple

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Sunday, 1 March, 1807

1.3.1807 dine at King's w. Butlers, Mays, Supple, Italian Jew & mrs Hippisley; adv. Plunkets
All the guests listed by Godwin were Irish (apart from the Italian Jew). Supple was an Irish name and only appeared this once in Godwin's diary. There were some of this name living in London.

Ring

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Friday, 20 February, 1807

20.2.1807 call on Philips, adv. Ring
Quite likely John Ring 1752-1821 doctor and author. His will PCC 18.5.1822. Morn Post 12.11.1821 died 7.11.1821 age 69. In 1807 his "Beauties of the Edinburgh Review, the Stinkpot of Literature" was published
