The Nugent at Carr's in 1795 may well have been the Irish artist and engraver Thomas Nugent as he was next to Martin Archer Shee, another Irish artist who came to England with Nugent and they married two sisters named Power, (Shee in 1796 and Nugent in 1798). That day at Carr's was where Godwin first met Carlisle and Shee, both of whom he met later with Carr, but he apparently didn't meet Thomas Nugent again. The two earlier Nugent entries were each in different company and the first one earned a place in Godwin's 1796 list alone among the company he appeared with. Thomas Nugent may have had radical sympathies, he certainly made a portrait of Lord Edward Fitzgerald.
The three L Nugent entries in 1828 probably referred to George Nugent Grenville DNB 1788-1850 (Baron Nugent). Godwin's L was often short for Lord. He was a whig of radical sympathies. The Nugent at Reynolds' breakfast in 1828 was probably him as well, as he was listed with Normanby and Morpeth, who were probably Viscount Normanby (Constantine Phipps DNB 1797-1863) and Viscount Morpeth (George Howard DNB 1802-1864), all titled politicians of liberal sympathies, followed by the poets Wordsworth & Coleridge, and Ralph Bernal DNB 1783-1854 another liberal politician and William Jerdan DNB 1782-1869 of the Literary Gazette. Two other celebrated poets, Thomas Moore and Thomas Campbell, had been invited.
The extensive work notes below (and I have more on paper) show how hard it is to find Nugents in a haystack.
