Elbridge Henry Goss, The History of Melrose, County of Middlesex, Massachusetts, (The City of Melrose, 1902. Melrose, Mass.; A W Dunton & Co., Printers), "Electronic," Page 379.
HON. SAMUEL EDMUND SEWALL
"He graduated from Harvard College in 1817. He came to North Malden in 1846, when it had but two or three hundred inhabitants. He was elected State Senator from Stoneham in 1852, as his house was just over the line from Melrose; but this territory was detached from Stoneham and joined to Melrose in 1853. He was identified with the anti-slavery movement from its beginnings, being one of the few who joined William Lloyd Garrison when he came to Boston in 1830. Mr. Sewall was also a prominent member of the National Anti-Slavery Society.
Upon the organization of the Liberty party he was for two years its candidate for Governor. He acted with that and the Free-Soil party until they were merged in the Republican party. He was ever foremost in advocating the passage of laws for the benefit of women, and while in the Senate he drafted a bill which became a law, giving married women the right to hold property. His only printed work is a pamphlet entitled Legal Condition of Women in Massachusetts, which was first issued in 1868; then revised in 1870, again in 1875 and again in 1886.
