"His [Edward Snr] only child, a son by his first wife, died in 1880, from an accident, to his inexpressible grief."4

Individual Note 2

The odd middle name may have been given for a Mr Thomas Monk who was a witness at the marriage of Edward and Emily - a family friend or benefactor perhaps?

Text From Source: "The Brighton Herald" Saturday May 1st 1897:

"DEATH OF MR. EDWARD HOADLY. - It is with great regret tht we record the death of a much-respected and esteemed townsman, in the person of Mr. Edward Hoadly, who passed away early yesterday morning, at his residence, 15 St. George's Place, after a protracted illness. Mr. Hoadly was a native of Leamington. He came to Brighton some 40 years ago, and was associated with the grocery business at that period carried on at the bottom of Trafalgar Street by the late Mr. Pannett, whom he afterwards succeeded, and in which he continued up to the time of his retirement, some 15 years since. The deceased gentleman had served on the Board of Guardians from the year 1885, and for the last two years had been Vice Chairman of the Board, every member of which entertained for him a high regard. Mr. Hoadly also officiated as Overseer in 1891-2, and was recently on the Burial Board. He was a very old member of the congregation of St. Peter's, and last year acted as Churchwarden, retiring from failing health. Mr. Hoadly, who was in his 65th year, was twice married, and leaves a widow to mourn his loss. His only child, a son by his first wife, died in 1880, from an accident, to his inexpressable grief. The funeral will take place next Tuesday at the Extra Mural Cemetery; the first portion of the Service being held at the Parish Church at noon. The arrangements are in the hands of Messrs. Attree and Kent."

THE BRIGHTON AND HOVE GUARDIAN
WEDNESDAY MAY 5TH 1897:

"DEATH OF THE LATE VICE-CHAIRMAN of the GUARDIANS

We announce with deep regret that the late Vice-Chairman of the Brighton Board of Guardians, Mr Hoadly, passed away at his residence on Friday morning, at 15, St George's Place, Brighton. He had, as is generally known, been in failing health for some time, afflicted with a heart trouble, but there were solid hopes that with the return of the spring and summer he would be restored to active health again. At the first meeting of the newly appointed Board of Guardians, held at Easter, there was some question as to the propriety of appointing Mr Rose vice-chairman when there was the possibility that sometime, if not actually at once, the popular occupant of that seat for so long a period, Mr Hoadly, would be able to return to it. It was intimated in reply, however, that Mr Hoadly would not regard the appointment in the light of a slight, and Mr Rose then, in taking the chair, after his unanimous appointment, intimated that he should be ready to give place, on his return, to Mr Hoadly. He would, he said, much rather support him than supplant him. Very probably no one present at the meeting thought Mr Hoadly's end was so closely upon him. At the last meeting of the old Board, the Vicar, the Rev. Prebendary Hannah, move "That this Board desires to record its great regret at the continued illness of its esteemed Vice-chairman, Mr Edward Hoadly, and expresses the hope that he may soon be restored to health and able to resume his duties as a Guardian." The motion was unanimously carried. Mr Hoadly seems to have been considered almost convalescent, when, on Sunday, a relapse took place, and he was again prostrated. It soon became evident that he was not going to rally from this attack, and, becoming gradually weaker, he died peacefully a few minutes after the stroke of midnight on Thursday. The deceased gentleman, who was 64 years of age, first became a member of the Brighton Board of Guardians in 1885. He was also a Churchwarden of St Peter's, and took great interest in the affairs of the parish. He signed the notices convening the last Easter Vestry meetings.

THE FUNERAL

The mortal remains of Mr Edward Hoadly, of 15, St George's place, were interred yesterday in the Extra-Mural Cemetery. The deceased, who died on April 30th, was churchwarden of Brighton from April 1896 to April 1897. The first part of the burial service was held in the parish church by the Vicar, who was assisted by the Rev. Canon Deedes, the Rev. Fairfax Scott, the Rev. D. L. Secretan, the Rev. E. H. Nash, and the Rev. F. L. P. Maurice. The chief mourners were Mrs Hoadly (widow), Mrs Leach (sister-in-law), and Mr S. Hoadly, Mr A. Hoadly, Mr Harry Gibbs, and Mr W. Leach. Among other persons present, either at the church or at the grave were Mr J. J. Holder, Mr D. Friend, Mr. J. R. Gwatkin, Mr W. Bennett (chairman of the Board of Guardians), Mr Mellor, the Rev. Seymer Terry, Mr Lethbridge, Mr W. W. Welling, Mr G. J. Calton, Mr J. O. Thomas, Mr S. Anscome, Mr A. Habens, Mr E. Booth, Mr Bevis, Dr Fox Goode, Mr J. Horton Stephens, Mr A. Dann, Mr Spooner, Mr A. Morris (clerk to the Board of Guardians), Mr Cripps, the Rev. Heathcote Smith, Dr E. Hussey, Mr T. Dewe, Mr E. T. Pearce, Mr T. Berry, Mr G. J. Galliers, Mr Hobbs, Mr Hilton, Mr J. J. Jones, and Mr Burden (Master of the Workhouse).
The Vicar, the clergy, and the choir met the coffin at the entrance to the church, and twenty four boys from the Warren Farm Schools, in which the deceased took so deep an interest, formed the rear of the procession. The coffin, which was covered with flowers, was laid on a bier in front of the chancel. The coffin was of polished oak, and bore on the breastplate the inscription "Edward Hoadly. Died 30th April 1897, Aged 64 years". The 90th Psalm having then been sung, the hymn "Lead kindly light" was given, after which the Rev. E. H. Nash read a portion of Scripture. The hymn "Peace Perfect peace" followed, and, after the collects, the hymn "Now the labourer's task is o'er" was sung. At the graveside the Rev. Vicar took the remaining portion of the service, assisted by the Rev. Fairfax Scott. The wreaths and crosses bore the following inscriptions: -
"In loving remembrance from Harry, Marian and children, Berkhampstead"; "In loving memory from Alfred"; "In loving memory from mother and all the girls"; "To our dear friend from the children of the Warren Farm schools"; "In loving memory from Sam and Annie"; "With deepest sympathy from Mr W. Bennett and family"; "With affectionate sympathy from Mrs and Miss Edwards"; "With sincere regret and sympathy from Madame Verly"; "With deepest love and sympathy from E. And N.P."; "With deepest sympathy from the members and officials of the Brighton Burial Board"; "Remembering affectionately all kindness: Alice"; "In loving remembrance, Mr and Mrs G. H. Graham"; "In token of affectionate regard from the officers of the Warren Farm School"; "With sincere sympathy from his former colleagues and members of the Brighton Board of Guardians"; "With sincere sympathy from Mr. and Mrs George F. Dover"; and "With deepest sympathy from Mr and Mrs James Hamblin"; and "In loving memory, from Emily and Harry." "
