Notes

  • Edwin's father was the gaoler at Ilchester and when Edwin was about 10 years old Mrs Leigh Perrot was imprisoned for stealing lace and stayed in the gaoler's house. In her letters she describes the family as uncouth and dirty and the younger children as noisy, however, she also says that the older girls entertained her with music. Edwin's father was literate and, as Edwin was able to become a solicitor, the children were probably educated quite well too.

    .
  • On 26 day of June 1849 Edwin Ward Scadding signed a Petition asking for permission to bring a Writ of Error in Parliament. He had, apparently, previously won an action against Joseph Patrick (who had since died) and Louis Lorant but Lorant challenged this by bringing a Writ of Error against Edwin. This caused the case to be heard by the Court of Exchequor where the judgement was reversed. Edwin felt this was the error and now wished to bring a Writ of Error returnable in Parliament.
