Charles Lewis Phipps et al. in Sloperton Cottage, Bromham, Wiltshire - 25 February, 1819, at night

from Diary of Thomas Moore, 25 February 1819, page 271:

The Macdonalds and Hugheses dined with us. With a little assistance from Phipps (who joined us when his wife and he came in the evening) finished five bottles of wine. All stayed to supper, and seemed to enjoy themselves. I sang in the evening, and, in spite of the wine, was in good voice.

Thomas Moore was friendly with two brothers, Robert and William Hughes. William was associated with the Devizes bank of Lock and Hughes. As both brothers were married with families, it's not possible to identify which was involved in this experience.
