Godwin Diary

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.
