This chapter discusses Saunderson’s politics and his estate. Throughout his life, Edward Saunderson’s politics had been rooted in the land. He had run for the House of Commons in 1865 because his family had a longstanding parliamentary interest in the County Cavan and because he instinctively associated proprietorship with political participation.
