in Leicester - between the 1770's and the 1780's

from Music and Friends: Or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante, page 14:

Though so indifferent a performer on the violin, I undertook to establish a junior musical society, to play overtures and symphonies, of which I took the lead. Our pieces were Valentine’s Marches, Humphrey’s Symphonies, and as much as we could play of Handel’s and Corelli’s Concertos.
