See DC to Arthur Shakespear, 28 June, 1785, borrowing £1000 for Kent land purchases. It is merely a presumption that this man is descended from ropemaker Alderman Shakespear and that his "brother" David is likewise a son of the alderman. See the book title on Alderman Shakespear. See Hibbert, King Mob, p. 148. This man considered to be a juror for the trial of Lord George Gordon after the riots. It was joked he would be prejudiced on account of his trade, ropemaker, in the decision of the jury. This man would be the son of Alderman Shakespear the ropemaker, linked to some of DC's family from Jamaica. This man signed the 1799 petition for the WI docks.

Arthur and Jane had the following children:

  143 M i No issue, Of Albany Shakespear John Matthew-44722 was born in 1778. He died in 1844. He was buried in Stepney.

Dear Dan, I have come across you site and all your hard work whilst googling for information on John Balgrove. I am a member of Warsash Local History Society and am researching for a short article on John Balgrove who lived at Great Abshot,[near Warsash] Titchfield and, after his death his daughter and family [Bradshaws] continued to live there. John Blagrove was a very interesting as well as wealthy man and I'm sure he would have had his image immortalised. I have located a miniature of his wife Ann with his daughter, Elizabeth Bradshaw & son in law and I was wondering if you are aware of any portraits of John Blagrove himself. It would be good to see a picture of who I am writing about and would be a useful addition to my article for our newsletter! I notice Peter Dickson has contributed a lot of information and wonder if I might be able to contact him with the same question? Thank-you for any help you are able to give. Regards, Penny
