Eardham, Sir George

Father of a large family, including three marriageable but dowerless daughters, Emily, Augusta and Josephine.

"...a stout, plethoric gentleman, with a short temper and many troubles.... Sir George suffered much from gout, and had obtained from the ill-temper which his pangs produced a mastery over his daughters which some fathers might have envied" - Ralph the Heir
