31.3.1795 Casey at King's (= Carey see original) /16.9.1795 Cary at John King's / 23.11.1795 House of Commons with Cary
The entries at King's were surely Captain John Carey later Viscount Falkland, (as all Carey entries at King's have been coded in GD website), and that at the House of Commons very likely him too, Godwin having seen Carey at King's only two days before on 21.11.1795. The topic of debate in the House on 23.11.1795 was the so called "two bills", for the security of the King, and against seditious meetings, and the many petitions for and against them.

Barrale, Miss

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Thursday, 30 July, 1795

30.7.1795 miss Barrale at King's (possibly the same person as miss Bannal at King's 3.12.1795)
Judging by results on Ancestry website, the name Barrale was rare in England at that time, more common in France. But one strange anomaly is, there are quite a number of Barrale entries on Ancestry in the censuses of 1841, 1851 &c but absolutely none in the Death Registration Indexes.

there was a Bowling Green House at Putney, where Godwin had just walked. It had been the residence of Lady Grantham, and William Pitt died there in 1806. There was also a Bowling Green House on the other side of New Road from Somers Town, and John King's address was sometimes given as New Road, though in 1795 he was living in Piccadilly
