15.7.1796 mes Temple & Arthur at Raven's / 8.1.1797 mes Temple at King's / 17.9.1804 call on Jo(seph) G(odwin) & H(olcrof)t (or Harriet?) : Curran calls n(ot in). adv. Temples / 1.10.1824 call on Lemon, SPO adv  Upcot, Temple / 19.10.1831 dine at Uwins with miss Temple
Temple was a fairly frequent surname among Norfolk farmers. Of the later four entries in London, that of 1804 may have been the Norfolk connection Temples if they were visiting Joseph Godwin, the diary entry seems ambiguous as to where the "adv" was.

GODWIN DIARY: 9.11.1795 at John King's / 18.3.1796 there / 16.5.1796 there. In Godwin's 1796 list for 1795
One of the proprietors of the Telegraph newspaper, along with John King, Charles Este, George Robinson & David Evans Macdonnell, all of whom were present on the first occasion and all except Robinson on the other two. Said in newspapers to be a half-pay ensign, which fits with a John Williamson ensign of 18th foot, listed in army half-pay from 1783 to 1808
