Godwin, Hannah.

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Sunday, 14 March, 1790

apprenticed 27.9.1778 for 2 years to Isaac Hoyle of Norwich, millener, premium £20. (Nat Arch IR1/61 f12) In her letter to her brother of June 1785 (Abinger c.1 f.24-5) Hannah Godwin wrote "I leave Mrs Hoyle's at Michaelmas" so she stayed a full 7 year term.
from her mother's letter of May 1788 (Abinger c.1 f78) it seems she was in partnership with Frances and Anna French, (the unmarried sisters of Joseph Fawcett's wife Charlotte).

Astley, Jacob

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Monday, 18 July, 1796

18.7.1796 dine at J Astley's with H Astley. Astleys appear in 1796 in Godwin's 1796 list but the entry isn't coded to Jacob Astley's person record in GD website.
 
Harwood's friend and Norfolk MP Jacob Astley, whom Harwood later insulted at an election meeting (see Bury and Norwich Post 30.3.1803), and probably his wife Hester. See History of Parliament for Jacob Astley and his father Edward. Their seat at Melton Constable was near to Godwin's mother's house at Dalling.

Mary

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Saturday, 16 July, 1796

16.7.1796 event tag: the comment in the GD website suggests that this "Mary chez elle" clearly referred to Mary Wollstonecraft, who was a hundred miles away. Possibly Godwin put an entry for 1797 in the wrong year when writing up his diary, but since he never called Mary Wollstonecraft "Mary" anywhere else in the diary, nor did his letters address her as Mary, it seems quite possible that this referred to another Mary. Godwin had supped that night at W.
