Brydall was a fellow of Queen's College, Oxford, and a bencher of Lincoln's Inn. A remarkably prolific writer, he published 36 legal treatises, and left 30 others in manuscript at the time of his death. All of these are brief, synthetic works. Holdsworth says they are good summaries that are "clearly arranged and based on the leading authorities." Written near the end of the Stuart Monarchy, Jura Coronae is a strongly monarchist overview of the laws and legal rights reserved by the Crown. Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of this work.
