                                        for many years, then moved to London when Anthony was aged around eleven.  William's father & his uncle had a
                                        a particularly difficult childhood when their father died prematurely and their mother remarried. 

                                        Both apprenticed in their respective trades, leaving home at an early age. Whilst Anthony's brother William 
                                        followed his father's trade of tailoring, Anthony assumed the trade of Boot-making, considered learnt from 
                                        his paternal uncle.
                                        Anthony had seven siblings in all, three brothers & four sisters.

                                          Anthony Harrison Scard, Head, aged 25, Boot Maker employing 9 men, born Middlesex.

                                           William's wealth appears to have been accumulated over the seven years since his marriage and whilst in the death 
                                            of his uncle Thomas Scard he may have inherited his Uncle's Shop, Anthony's accomplishments were very likely due 
                                            to his own craftsmanship and endeavour.  His interest in the physiology of the feet and his philosophical approach  
                                            was renown in London and undoubtedly this passion contributed to his outstanding success.

  1854 Anthony Harrison Scard gives evidence in a Trial at the Old Bailey, London on the 18th Sept. 1854.

           1854: Meanwhile Anthony's philosophies and passion relating to the care of the feet is evident in a treatise mentioned 
                                        in the Chamber's Journal of Popular Literature, Science & Arts.
