    Notes 
    • Very general regret will be felt in Lincoln's Inn and the Chancery Courts at the death, which occurred in London yesterday, of Mr. Edward Beaumont, one of the oldest practising barristers, who had for long been recognized as one of the most learned and capable lawyers in equity and conveyancing matters.
      Edward Beaumont was the second son of James Beaumont, a London solicitor, and was born in 1845. He was educated at Highgate School and at St. John's College, Cambridge, where he was a Wrangler, and he was called to the Bar by Lincoln's Inn. of which he was subsequently elected a Bencher, in 1870. He soon acquired an extensive practice, which he retained until his death. In consequence of the large amount of business which passed through his chambers, his pupil room in time became one of the most popular in Lincoln's Inn, and the list of men who subsequently acquired distinction in the profession and elsewhere is a remarkable one. It includes Lord Buckmaster, Mr. Justice Romer. Lord Finlay, Sir Harold Morris, K.C., Mr. Colam, K.C., Sir Edward Chamier, Sir Edgar Bonham-Carter, Sir William Brunyate, Sir Malcolm McIlwraith, Lord Remnant, Sir Samuel Roberts, and Lord Cushendun. Some years ago a large gathering of his former pupils testified to the affection and respect in which he was held by giving him a dinner, at which Lord Buckmaster presided.
      For more than half a century Edward Beaumont undoubtedly had one of the best equity and conveyancing practices in Lincoln's Inn, and there were probably few of the great firms of family solicitors whom at one time or another he had not numbered among his professional clients. About 1902 he was appointed Junior Counsel to the Attorney-General in charity matters. Whether at the critical stage of his career he did not fail to follow the right road of taking silk, which would probably have led to the Bench, may be a matter for conjecture; but, however this may be, it is certain that in his day no counsel practising in the Chancery Courts, whether leader or junior, ever attained a higher reputation for learning, integrity, and geniality than did Edward Beaumont. To the Judges who had trusted him ; to clients who had relied on him ; and to generations of pupils whom he had launched upon successful careers, the news of his death will bring a sense of real personal loss. He was a prominent Freemason and a member of the Court of the Cutlers' Company.
      Edward Beaumont married Elizabeth Helen, eldest daughter of John Lawrence Tatham, the well-known conveyancer. She died in 1912. A son, Mr. John W. F. Beaumont, K.C., who was appointed Chief Justice of Bombay last week, and a daughter survive him. [obituary, The Times] [7]
