Biographical Sketch
Edward Marion Chadwick was born 22 Sept. 1840 in Ancaster, Ontario. His family moved to Guelph, Ontario, when Chadwick was 11, where his father, John Craven Chadwick, served as a justice of the peace. Chadwick later studied law in Toronto in his late teens. He was admitted as a solicitor in 1862 and was called to the Bar on 20 May 1862, entering into partnership with William Henry Beatty in February 1863. The next year, Chadwick married Beatty's sister, Ellen Byrne Beatty, who died shortly after in 1895. Chadwick's focus in law was conveyances and estates. He was made a King's Counsel in 1910. In addition to his legal work, Chadwick pursued interests in genealogy and heraldry. He wrote a number of genealogy books, namely the two-volume "Ontarian families" (1894-1898), "The Chadwicks of Guelph and Toronto" (1914), "The people of the longhouse" (1897) and wrote for the journal "Ontario Genealogist and Family Historian" from 1898 to 1901. As a heraldist, Chadwick designed the shield for the Province of Saskatchewan (1905), the coat of arms of the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada (1908), and the supporters, crest, and motto for the Province of Ontario shield (1909). An officer of the Queen's Own Rifles from 1866 to 1882, Chadwick was also made an honorary chief of the Six Nations. Edward Marion Chadwick died in Toronto on 15 December 1921.
