Noticeably each time with the Rev Charles Este. (Note I previously described Rev Charles Este here as "an unmarried literary parson". Not sure why I thought he was unmarried. In fact he had married Cordelia Croft in 1775 and they had at least five children who survived infancy. She died in 1828 a few months before he did. For information about their oldest son Charles Edward see
