Hello Ed, I have just read your article on the Stodarts, pianoforte makers etc, also James Stodart Surgical Instrument Maker & Cutler, 401 Strand, London. My G,G,Grandfather was David Stodart, he continued the Cutlers business after James Stodart FRS died in 1823/26. I believe a David is mentioned in James' will as a nephew. Davids father was Samuel. Samuel was James' FRS brother, the only records I have of Samuel are from Robert Riddle Stodarts Appendix to - Memoir of James Wyld of Gilston and his Family. also of Robert Stodart of Kailzie and Ormiston Hill. By Robert Stodart Wyld, LL.D. printed for private circulation 1889.
In the Appendix it stated that Samuel left a family in India!
If you have any other information that may relate to my family I would love to hear from you.
Phil Stodart.
