Benoit of Comberbach

Champion defender for The Great Lawsuit (1843), Benoit Woodbridge Comberbach (of Comberbach) would eventually pen By Order of Understanding in the late 19th century (a transformative legal doctrine better known as Clemency and Commiseration in the 20th century and simply, Druthers for Others, or how it is referred to today).

The Family Crest Of Thomas Middleditch

Chiefly set in the hundred of Pimhill, Myddle Castle was built perhaps 1308, by Lord John Le Strange. The castle would ultimately collapse into ruin during the earthquake of 1688, but recognition of the Middleditch family crest would only grow. Spelling variations eventually included: Middle, Midel, Mittel, Mittle, Middler, Midlar and Thomas Middleditch.
