See also my entry for Stevenson, though one place where the two were possibly confused was meet Stevenson on 14.9.1805 two days before the call on mrs Stephenson above (Godwin had noted no Stevenson since 1802 and no Stephenson at all before 1805). The six day interval before Thomas Stephenson came to tea suggests he was related to the mrs Stephenson of the first entry above. There may also have been some connection with the Rowans and/or with Grace Mary Cooper. Thomas Stephenson son of William & Elizabeth born 12.1.1791 bapt 20.2.1791 St John Clerkenwell would have been 14, which would be quite probable except perhaps for the "call on" entry. See Godwin's letter to his wife dated 5.6.1806 (Bodleian MS Abinger c.42 f.23) which suggests Stephenson was a potential guest at Charles Clairmont's 11th birthday party the day before.

The entry of 1835 must have been Benjamin Charles Stephenson surveyor general of the Board of Works and Major General in the Hanoverian service, in 1827 executor of Duke of York's will, died 10.6.1839 in 73rd year buried 15.6.1839. Three days before the above entry on 22.9.1835 he had been according to the newspapers, with the King (William IV) in Bagshot Park
