EDMUND W. SCANES
EDMUND W. SCANES 1843 - 1905
Edmund W. was born about 1843 at Ide, son of John & Mary A. Scanes. The 1851 census shows at age 8 he was at home, I'm not sure if this means he was educated at home or he didn't go to school at this time. His older brother Adrian age 12 was a scholar.
Edmund certainly did have some education as the 1881 census shows him age 38, unmarried, an Officer and School Master at the St Thomas Union Workhouse at Old Okehampton Road, St Thomas, Exeter.
Edmund died in June 1905 aged 63 years, he is buried at Ide.
