James Mince was recorded in the London Gazette as bankrupt in 1791/92 at Bell Square, Foster Lane ( Issues 13356, 13372 and 13442).
The London Gazette has no further notices beyond the initial bankruptcy. No notices of creditors meetings, dividends , or release etc.
So it sounds as if they got nothing as Mr Mince had quietly disappeared.

However Goldsmiths' Hall record him notifying a change of address to 26, Phillip Lane Aldermanbury on 28 March 1790, very soon after registering his mark alone as a smallworker at the old Bell Square address 5 February 1790. His son was apprenticed to him on 7 July 1790.
All this before bankruptcy proceeding had been instigated at his old address.

His death in the Goldsmiths' Alms Houses in 1808 seem to follow a rather too common story of a descent into poverty

However I recently bought a (rather battered) fish slice with his oval mark of 1790 (Grimwade no 1526) dated 1802/1803 !
Did he quietly disappear in 1790 and carry on, with the possible connivance of Goldsmiths Hall, at the second address ?
He certainly did not give his new address to the creditors !!!!
