In 1791 a Samuel Rawle was apprenticed to Thomas Bonner,of Gloucester as an engraver. (National Archives IR 1 Series 66 f 5). He moved to London in the late 1790's and married Mary Purkess 28 April 1801 at St. Pancras. His obituary appears in the Essex Standard of 14 Nov. 1860.
"Oct. 31st at his residence, Kentish Town, Samuel Rawle, Esq. aged 84 and on the 6th inst. Mary, his widow, aged 83, after a union of 61 years."
He was a friend of William Lyddon, Solicitor of 24 Carey Street who was born Eastbury Farm, Carhampton, Somerset. There is a journal in the Somerset Heritage Centre DD/X/HDG/3 that has a poem "To my Worthy Friend Mr. Sam. Rawle" written by William Lyddon January 17, 1790
