April 8th 1858

Dear Sir,

I find that a family of the name of Edgeworth married into the ‘Talbot’ family in all probability between 1670 & 1690

My searches have hitherto left me in ignorance of the name of the Lady who married an Edgeworth, from the fact of my attention having been almost exclusively directed to the male members of the family.

It has however, occurred to me that the fact of the marriage may be well known to you & that you may be able to tell me who the Lady was and all about her – If you can do so I shall be very much indebted to you for the information; while if you cannot I must crave your pardon for having troubled you with the enquiry

I beg to remain, DrSir Yr very obedt St
