Example text

The last mention of him in the bills was on 2 December 1745, when he shared a benefit with several others. A Mrs Howard was granted a benefit at Goodman's Fields on 6 February 1747; she is not known to have been in the troupe, though she may well have been. Howard, Mr [fl. 17351736], house servant. Latreille identified Mr Howard of the Covent Garden Theatre in 173536 as a pit office keeper at a salary of 2s. 6d. nightly. On 31 May 1736 Howard shared a benefit with two others, and at some point during the season he replaced Mrs Redfern as a boxkeeper.

Hough's activity at Drury Lane ceased after the spring of 1742, and it seems most probable that he was the Mr Hough who had a benefit at the New Wells, London Spa, on 23 February 1743 (the place seems to have been specially opened for the occasion). On 7 February 1746 the Reverend John Lloyd leased Sadler's Wells to Thomas Rosomon, who had previously managed the New Wells, Spa Fields, and to Peter Hough. The lease that Peter and Rosomon obtained was for 21 years at a yearly rental of £100 plus the rates and taxes.

By 1668 Hudson was receiving £42 10s. 10d. yearly as one of the King's composers. A warrant in the Lord Chamberlain's accounts dated 26 April 1669 suggests that the widow of Richard Hudson, a violinist and probably a relative of George, was to receive £32 5s. "by vertue of an assignment from George Hudson" of his livery payments for 1665 and 1666. Richard must have loaned George some money, taking as collateral the arrears in liveries. By 21 January 1670 George had become a warden in the Corporation of Music, though that position probably brought him no income.
