According to the Proceedings of the Old Bailey (available online), in May 1820 an Edward Hodder prosecuted a young black man called William Wilkinson. He alleged that after they met in Hyde Park one night, Wilkinson extorted money by threatening to accuse him of soliciting him for sex. Wilkinson was convicted and hanged. The Times carried an account of the trial, but refers to the prosecutor as 'Captain Huddersby'. Same man?
