Sir Edward Thurland was an eminent lawyer & judge, reasonably fair for the times (in which most were jaundiced by corruption and partiality). He was quite careful of his reputation.
Even so, when he was named for judge on a case,(Easter Sessions, Reigate, Surrey 1671)one party sollicited him heavily beforehand and the other party,Sir Nicholas Stoughton, Bt.(whose memoirs I've just transcribed)hired Thurland's son as counsel,'which I suppose was the reason his father was so much for me'. Stoughton refers often to Thurland in his MS.
