The only three times Proby appeared in Godwin's diary, (except in 1798 when Godwin read a book by William C Proby comparing Godwin's philosophy with that of Lycurgus of Sparta), and all at (or near in the first case) John Taylor's. Possibly the author William C Proby about whom I know nothing, possibly John Proby, Lord Proby 1780-1855 History of Parliament. John Taylor DNB 1757-1832. Records of My Life
