see Autobiography of Francis Olace, ed. Mary Thale p. 53-4 (in Greyhound Court where Place learned to turn and file) Place made a simple error calling him Cuthbertson. There was indeed a John Cuthbertson, mathematical, philosophical and optical instrument maker c.1743-1821 who worked in Amsterdam in the 1770s and 1780s and then returned to London, trading in Shoe Lane Holborn and then Poland Street. However the mathematical instrument maker in Greyhound Court was David Cuthbert

15.12.1794 Richter & Baxter discharged / 26.8.1804 Baxter at Tooke's / 12.10.1806 again
The above entries have been coded in GD website to Baxter family (Baxter of Dundee). The first should belong certainly, and the other two probably, to John Baxter (fl 1794-1816 in DNB London Corresponding Society act. 1792-1799)

Landseer, Mrs

CRABB ROBINSON DIARY 25.5.1820 Mrs Lanseer, mother of the artist - radical views
                                                  12.6.1827 "the late Mrs Lanseer was a firm believer and Unitarian Christian"
I could find no trace of the death of Mrs Ann Landseer but she seems to have been the person Crabb Robinson was referring to (see below for details). In noting her Christian beliefs Robinson was defending her against those who confounded her radical views with disbelief. He could not have meant John Landseer's wife Jane nee Potts who lived till 1840
