Must be William Darton DNB 1755-1819 publisher and/or his son William DNB 1781-1854. William senior had a son Thomas born 1783. Joseph Harvey 1764-1841 was a partner (see DNB for Darton). Like Godwin they specialised in children's books. The 1810 entry suggests that Godwin had a case against Darton in the Court of Requests, or he went to watch someone else's case against Darton. I couldn't find it in the newspapers, and Court of Requests records at Nat Arch cease in 1642
