21.6.1810 Daly, Rexworthy, Tracy &c call
Godwin didn't often use the &c in a list of callers (I use it on this website to abbreviate his lists but in this case and on the next day with Kingston he used the &c). Rexworthy and Tracy both only appeared once in diary. Both rare names

30.6.1810 H Boinville calls: C B dines
This C B has been coded on GD website to the Baxter family, implying presumably Christina Baxter who certainly came to London later with Godwin's daughter Mary, but no reason to think she was in London in 1810, her father had last seen Godwin in the summer of 1809. This was more likely to have been Cornelia Boinville age 15

Miles junior

8.6.1810 dine at Johnson, w. Miles jr. &c
John Miles 1784-1856 was an executor of Joseph Johnson's will and married Anne daughter of Eliezer Chater in 1811. His father Joseph Miles of Liverpool will PCC 1816 had married Joseph Johnson's niece Mary and their only other surviving son in 1810 was Joseph Johnson Miles 1800-1867 so he was likely the 10 year old Miles jr at Johnson's in 1810

7.6.1810 call, w. M(ary) J(ane), on D. of Cumbd
Ernest Augustus 1771-1851 fifth son of George III was Duke of Cumberland & Teviotdale from 1799. On 31.5.1810 he was attacked and wounded and his valet Sellis was found with his throat cut. Cumberland was an extreme Tory in the Lords. Francis Place was foreman of the coroners jury which concluded Sellis had cut his own throat but there was much speculative scandal about Cumberland's role in these events
