Raynal at Joyce's 16.1.1806 / adv. at Joyce's 17.2.1806
Godwin noted reading works by Raynal several times between 1791 and 1832. This was the Abbé Raynal 1713-1796. Joyce's visitor may have been an emigré relative of his. The French Biographical Index lists four other Raynals who were alive in 1806 but in the texts referred to by the index I could find no sign that they had gone to England. Francois Raynal 1726-1810 religious and orientalist / Jean Raynal 1723-1807 historian / Pierre Raynal 1755-1833 schoolmaster / Pierre Raynal 1768-1849 schoolmaster
