Thank you for that Jill
Edward Colsill lived at 37 New Bond Street which was a juvenile library and he was a wood and ivory turner. Sophia was the daughter of Thomas Sawyer of Tunbridge Wells. There is a lithograph of Edward in the National Portrait Gallery www.npg.org.uk
Edward's father also Edward who died in 1910 was a turner and toy maker of 34 Bond Street who had his warehouse at 37 Bond Street. In his will proved 3 Mar 1810 (PCC 1810 129 ) he left his wife Mary (nee Colshill?)the profit of two houses (one in Brook Street and the other in Maddox Street).
Sir Peter Edlin was granted a coat of arms which was the traditional coat of arms of the Edlin family (Emine, a fess vair, or and guiles) with a difference in chief taken from the Colshill Arms and the swans neck crest replaced by the Colshill Crest. I have been trying to trace the details of these differences and the associated pedigree but I am unwilling to pay the huge search fee demanded by the College of Arms.
I also have been unable to link him to the 16th and 17th century Edlins who were confirmed to have the original arms.
