Knapp, Leonora

10.12.1800
The GD website discusses the coding of LK in its editorial notes for the person record of Leonora Knapp, suggesting that apart from one entry on 29.5.1830, Leonora Knapp didn't appear in Godwin's diary after 1815, with which I agree. However there are many LK entries after 1815 coded to Leonora Knapp and they should all be transferred to Louisa Holcroft/ (Kenney) nee Mercier. In the period between Louisa Holcroft's marriage to Kenney in March 1812 and the end of 1815 Godwin gradually shifted his use of LK from Knapp to Kenney. Two of those entries I think GD website has coded wrongly. 27.10.1812 LK calls & dines. This was before Godwin had used LK for Louisa Kenney, nor did Louisa Kenney call on the Godwins otherwise after her marriage till 20.7.1813 so I think this should be transferred to L Knapp who had often called on Godwin. 2.10.1814 dine at L K's can be identified as Louisa Kenney by the arrival of two of her sisters F(anny)  H(olcrof)t and Dowlings (see Mercier, Elizabeth) and should be transferred to her from Leonora Knapp.
