The answer says highly ranked so may be "General Tom Thumb" as he was also known.

Understand it,I drag away electric lead and am walking on my toes! Dig (understand) + anagram "it I drag" (away) + e ( lead letter of "electric" gives "digitigrade" - walking on toes?

More comfortable is "Cosier"
Just looked it up in Chambers and it gives "Shakesp. - a cobbler", which fits with your answer to 49.
