Edmund John Thomas Judge MOURILYAN (1841-1882)

Biographical Details

Edmund John Thomas Judge Mourilyan (1841-1882), known as Ned, was the eldest brother of Eugénie Narcisse Sladden (née Mourilyan).

Edmund Mourilyan was born at Sandwich, Kent, on 18th September 1841, the eldest of eight children of John Mourilyan, a solicitor, and his wife, Mary Anna (née Wood).  He was baptised at St Clement, Sandwich, on 17th October 1841.

On 14th February 1863, as a 21-year-old law student, Ned married 26-year-old Martha McGlew at St James, Clerkenwell.  At the time of his marriage, he was living at 4 South Villas, South Street, Greenwich, whilst Martha, lived at Castle Villa, Muswell Hill.  Martha’s parents, Robert and Elizabeth, had died in the 1850s.  Ned and Martha did not have children. 

At the time of the 1871 census, Ned was living in Richmond in the home of his recently-married sister, Mary Anna, and her husband, Frederick Dalgarno Robinson.  Ned was a solicitor and was possibly working for his brother-in-law who was also a solicitor. Ned was described as unmarried, but this was an error.

Ned appears to have split his time between France and England.  The Post Office London Suburban Directory for 1880 reveals that both Ned and his father were residing at 21 The Green, Richmond, working for the firm of Mourilyan & Son.

Ned Mourilyan died on 24th June 1882 at 188 Boulevard Haussmann, Paris, aged 41.  He was described as “formerly of 3 Rue Chapeyron but late of 188 Boulevard Haussmann and of 370 Rue St Honoré all in Paris in France and of 21 The Green, Richmond, in the county of Surrey”.  Ned was originally buried at Auteuil Cemetery but was moved to Passy Cemetery less than a year later.

Ned had appointed his brother-in-law, Frederick Dalgarno Robinson of Richmond, as the sole executor; he left a personal estate of £1653 16s 2d.
