5.3.1791 at Timothy Hollis /  18.9.1796 at Horne Tooke's
Isaac Preston admitted Lincolns inn 1769, eldest son by 2nd wife of Isaac Preston deceased (will PCC 1768) of Beeston St Laurence Norfolk; subscr to Jebb's Works 1787, Law List 1793 counsel Norfolk circuit, recorder of Lynn, died 6.5.1796, will PCC 1796.

Just possibles are William Preston DNB 1750-1807 dramatist lived Dublin, Thomas Preston DNB 1774-1850 for the Tooke's entry & William Preston DNB 1742-1818 freemason

Montagu, Basil

First entry in Godwin diary (1788-1836 only): 
Saturday, 6 December, 1794

The DNB entry for Basil Montagu is in error about the date Montagu married his 2nd wife, Laura Rush, which was at Glasgow on 6.9.1801. His 3rd wife was clearly the one in entries after 1806, she was famous as Thomas and Jane Carlyle's 'noble lady'.
Although Montagu first appeared in Godwin's 1796 list for 1795, the entry for 6.12.1794 was only a 'see' so may have been him.
The B M on f 46r of Vol VII of Godwin's diary before the 1796 list is surely him, see Montague, Sidney
