Wm Reid 1775 directory 3 Bush-st Bristol accomptant. About 1776 William Reid accomptant of Hot Wells freemason in Jehosophat lodge, Bristol. Directories 1793 and 1795 William Reid, All Saints-pass Bristol, broker. 1797 St Michaels-hill. 1798 and 1799 Paul-st, Kingsdown, Bristol insurance broker. Couldn't trace his family details.

Richard Clark, chamberlain of London (DNB 1739-1831) was presumably the last two entries above, and may have also been the first two (if not, I regard them as too hard to identify because the name is so common).
