Morning Chronicle 25.3.1796 ad for subs for LCS sending deputies into the country, list of those receiving subs included Hughes, bookseller, Carthusian St, Charterhouse Sq (Thale p351 note 49). On 23.5.1796 Div 4 of LCS resolved against a general meeting, signed by John Arnold President and Jas Hughes Secretary (Thale p358). These two not certainly the same but are close in date and no other Hughes in Thale.

Robert son of John & Elise Hawes bapt 27.12.1748 Bury St Edmunds
The best source for his family was the will proved PCC 10.4.1801 of his aunt Unica Hawes of Botesdale, Suffolk from which we see he had many cousins, his father had died by 1784, his grandparents John & Ellen Hawes were buried in Rickinghall churchyard, his uncle Robert was an apothecary of Bury St Edmunds (whose will was proved PCC 1784).

Frost at 16 Pepper St, Lomans Pond, Southwark was an address for LCS signatures 12.11.1795, and the president of Div 15 of the LCS on 18.9.1797 was called Frost (see Thale). Nearest but unlikely identification I found was John Frost pawnbroker of Tooley Street Southwark will proved PCC 21.1.1799. Though both in St Saviour's parish, Tooley Street and Lomans Pond were not particularly close.
