5.9.1810 dine at Aldis's, w. Rees
Coded in GD website to Abraham Rees DNB 1743-1825 but I suspected in this case at Aldis's it was George Rees DNB 1776-1846 MD of Finsbury-sq (Holdens directory 1811). However seeing that a John Rees was among the mourners at Lady Aldis' funeral 7.10.1822 (as reported in the press though left out of Godwin's list) I also wondered if it was John Rees surgeon 1790-1841, who married Eliza Maltby in 1828 at Covent Garden, but I couldn't find him in directories before 1839 at 240 Blackfriars-rd. Aldis was surgeon to the New Finsbury Dispensary, was the same age as George Rees, and both had studied at Guy's and Bart's
