C & B

sup with C & B, Marlb. Strt  23.9.1800 / 11.10.1800 call on Cn / 17.10.1800 C sleeps / 18.10.1800 C at Perry's
John Philpot Curran DNB 1750-1817 & James Boaden DNB 1762=1839, the only C and only B already named that day. Godwin had Curran to dinner, then went to the theatre with him, where they met Boaden and all three supped together. The other Cn & C entries above all surely referred to Curran but not coded to him in GD website


30.6.1810 H Boinville calls: C B dines
This C B has been coded on GD website to the Baxter family, implying presumably Christina Baxter who certainly came to London later with Godwin's daughter Mary, but no reason to think she was in London in 1810, her father had last seen Godwin in the summer of 1809. This was more likely to have been Cornelia Boinville age 15
