Clarke, Hewson

8.2.1806 Hewson Clarke callsn
Very likely Hewson Clarke (DNB 1787 - in or after 1845) who at age 18 had come down from Gateshead  to Cambridge University, but was more interested in literature than study and it's perhaps a shame that Godwin missed or refused the call and never recorded the name again. There is a burial record at St Dunstan in the West, London on 21.5.1817 for a Hewson Clarke age 29 from Serle's Place, which accords well with his birthdate and with  the reports of R Welford and E Mackenzie, (which are contradicted by works and letters published in his name in 1832 and in 1845 in Canada)
