He was committed to prison for marrying Louisa whilst she was a ward of Chancery, but later released. Letters of Administration granted 1847 to Louisa Agassiz, wife of James David Agassiz esq. of Dawlish, East Teignmouth, Devon, daughter. (In view of the length of time since the death this was presumably a Grant de Bonis non).
