Earle

17.6.1807 explanation, S S; adv. T(homas) T(urner) from Earle / 13.7.1811 Earle adv. at theatre
Possibly the attorney's clerk James Henry Earle (c.1787-1856) son of the surgeon Sir James Earle (DNB 1755-1816). He later took a law degree at Cambridge and got ordained in the Church of England. He was articled to Washington Coates of Lincolns Inn for 5 years on 22.1.1805 for a substantial premium of 300 guineas. Possibly also his father or one of his uncles or brothers but he seems to have been the only Earle in the legal profession at that time, where Thomas Turner was most likely to have contacts. The Earle at the theatre in 1811 could just as well have been Sir James Earle.
