Edward was born in Great Shelford and baptised on 11 December 1842. He was the son of William and Elizabeth and his father worked as a carpenter.  He grew up on the High Street in Great Shelford (1851) and at 19 Earl Street (1861). By the age of 18 he was working as a tailor and later became a tailor’s foreman (1871) and then tailor/robemaker. He worked in a partnership with Joseph Flower and John Neil in a company called ‘P.J.

The family lived at 19 James Street (1871), 14 Trafalgar Road (1881), 59 Chesterton Road (1891) and then 22 Market Hill.  Edward died at Market Hill aged 54 years and the Cambridge Chronicle and Journal reported that ‘he had been acutely suffering from a painful malady for many months. He was a Liberal and a Nonconformist, and was esteemed by his fellow workers’.
