Yarley calls 20.5.1798
A one-off call but a rare name, though it could have been a spelling of Yardley. See work notes below


Yarnolds 13.2.1805 at R Taylor
I found no connection between Richard Taylor DNB 1781-1858 printer and any Yarnolds, which was a name from Worcestershire and the Welsh borders while Taylor's family was from Norwich, and no Yarnolds in British Book Trades Index. Some London Yarnolds in work notes below

Unitarian family based in Liverpool / Rev Richard Yates DNB 1769-1834 or his brother Rev William Yates 1774-1830 schoolmaster of Shacklewell. I'm not inclined to think any of these were…

Yeates, Thomas senior & junior

Thomas Yeates of the Strand proposed Society for Constitutional Information 21.12.1781 by John Jebb 2nded Richard Brocklesby
Thomas Yeates hatter & hosier Villars St Strand 1774, 30 Strand 1779-1785, York House, Strand 1785-1791 (?will PCC 1816, 1837?)
Thomas Yeates (DNB 1768-1839) was according to DNB appointed secretary to the SCI in 1782 and removed from post in February 1784 after failing to manage the Society's finances. According to the SCI books he resigned as secretary on 28.11.1783 and was made an honorary member, then on 6.2.1784 he was rude to Richard Brocklesby…

Yeo, James

17.12.1810 T(homas) T(urner) sups. (adv. Sir James Yeo)
James Lucas Yeo DNB 1782-1818 naval officer (knighted 21.6.1810, set sail again Feb 1811). What Godwin meant by an adv in brackets after a full stop at the end of a day's entry is anybody's guess. Maybe Sir James came up in conversation, paraded past the window or knocked on the wrong door by accident?

Yoell, Yoel

12.5.1788 see Yoel (at or after Robinson's). Yoel Yoell watchmaker and finisher, Duke St, Aldgate took apprentices in 1785 and 1792 and at Portsea, Hants in 1796. There was also a Messrs Yuell & Co tailors of Bloomsbury in 1788 and a Yuel, Esq of Hart St, Bloomsbury who subscribed to Bell's Shakspere in 1788

I can't see now why I suggested Thomas Young DNB 1773 - 1829 for the above four entries, except that he was a surgeon who would have known Carlisle, and an interesting thinker who might have been at Johnson's. (Oct 1794 to Edinburgh, toured Scotland summer 1795, to Gottingen 1795 dissertation Gottingen July 1796, resided 6 terms at Cambridge 1797-9, "appears to have spent as much time as possible in London")

Young, Charles Mayne

                 31.10.1822 at Aders "Ch: Young among others - he did not please me as before. He was loud even vociferous - his talk political commonplace - an effort at saying odd things, but his humour coarse"
