Biographical or historical data
Edward Barradall was born by 17 October 1703, on which date he was baptised, probably in London, England, to Henry Barradall and Catherine Blumfield Barradall. He studied law and moved to Virginia by February 1731. Barradall presented a license to practice law in Caroline County, Virginia, 14 December 1732, and also practiced in Richmond and Westmoreland Counties, Virginia. Barradall became the lawyer for Thomas, Lord Fairfax (1693-1781), and moved to Williamsburg, Virginia, to represent Fairfax's proprietary interests in the General Court and before the Council. Barradall was appointed to the James City County, Virginia, Court 5 May 1736, and became the presiding judge 15 December 1738. He was elected mayor in 1736 and after serving his one-year term was the city's recorder. Elected to the House of Burgesses for the College of William and Mary in November 1738, Barradall was chairman of the Committee for Courts of Justice. Barradall was appointed attorney general for Virginia in late 1737, and received his permanent appointment from the king for that position and for the judgeship of the Court of Vice-Admiralty in March 1738. Barradall remained attorney general of Virginia until his death 19 June 1743. He was buried in the Bruton Parish Churchyard. He married Sarah Fitzhugh 5 January 1736, and they probably had no children.
