The brothers Thomas & Isaac Fawcett seem to have both had a son Thomas baptised in 1775, the Thomas buried 1795 age 26 doesn't quite fit them, though he was from Finsbury Court which was near to Thomas Fawcett's in Chiswell St. The SCI member, and so probably the Thos Fawcett in Godwin's Diary 1796, was most likely Thomas son of Isaac Fawcett, and probablt the bankrupt of 1803 as his father was a whalebone merchant and Old Change was not that far from Pancras Lane.
