Both times at Holcroft's in 1790 with Fenwick, the second time with Bond also, no suggestion at present who this was. The four times at Joseph Johnson's and all Dr Simmons entries were probably Dr Samuel Foart Simmons will PCC 1813 of St James Piccadilly. Johnson published and Simmons edited the journal "Medical Facts and Observations" 1790-7. See also my entry for Millen, Sarah F who was perhaps an illigitimate daughter of Dr Simmons

As a widower he married Susanna Lamb spinster at St Pancras on 24 December 1798.

September 2015 the DNB has credited my website and adopted a revised version based on my suggestions and with other additions that look like the contributor took my research seriously and did a bit of research herself, (which greatly cheers me up as it is not the norm)

Comments

Might I suggest that it is possible that the Dr Simmons referred to might be Richard Simmons (who I believe was half brother of Samuel Foart Simmons) surgeon of the British Lying In Hospital, who was living at 85 Newman Street at this time.
