GODWIN DIARY mrs Tomkins 23.10.1794 at Jennings'.
Perhaps the Mrs Tomkins who regularly visited her brother-in-law John Augustus Bonney when he was in the Tower from 16.5.1794 to 24.10.94 when he was moved to Newgate ready for trial (her visit to Jennings the day before the move may have some significance). Born Ann Hague c.1760, in 1782 she married Charles Tomkins, printseller son of the landscape painter William Tomkins (who died 1792). Her younger sister Mary, as Mary Johnson widow, married Bonney at St Pancras on 23.9.1787, the witnesses being Charles Tomkins and Thomas Hague. Hague was articled to Bonney for 5 years on 7.6.1788 and acted as his attorney during his imprisonment
