Hogan, Thomas Cockerell

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Monday, 16 March, 1812

The GD website has Hogan as an Idenified Person but knows almost nothing about him.The mentions of Hogan in Godwin's diary were approx 200 from 16.3.1812 to 12.2.1816, most of these were Hogan calling on Godwin, and taking tea and supper with him. 24.8.1814 was the last time Hogan came to Godwin, after which Godwin wrote to him a few times, called on him once, and heard from him via others (mostly Charles Clairmont). While Hogan was coming regularly to Godwin's, Godwin only called on him a few times and wrote to him a few times.

The GD website has coded these to be Longdill's partner, though the context is minimal this is probably correct, for his details see below
