The following is an interesting insight into Edwards affairs:
"Edward Alston, Orator's uncle, late of Loughton, co. Bucks. deed., mortgaged various parts of his estate, and neglected to pay either principal or interest. His creditors obtained an execution against him, and he left his house privately and went to London, and sent for your orator (Sir Joseph), and represented his misfortunes and the ruin that threatened his family, if he were not speedily helped. . . . .
