  • Notes  Married:
    • Before sailing to Australia Edward married Frances Johnson, known as Fanny, who was the daughter of Elizabeth Johnson, a widow.

      Edward,his father John, his wife Fanny and his three servants, William Chapman, Thomas Lang and Mary Hosegood made up the party that set sail from England in April 1823 on the Allies. Five months later they sailed into Sydney to start a new life. The following year, William Chapman and Mary Hosegood were married at Newcastle. William died in 1827, leaving Mary with a young family.

      Edward and Fanny who had no children of their own, brought up Emma Chapman, the eldest child, as their adopted daughter. Emma married Charles Joseph, reputedly Fanny's nephew, at St Paul's, Paterson in December 1847. Charles and Emma later returned to England, where they spent the rest of their lives.
