Edward Moden

Edward Moden was the youngest of the six children of labourer Edward Moden, and his wife Mary Ann (née Freeman) of Coveney, Cambridgeshire, England.

Edward was born in September 1867, four months after his father had died at the age of 38yrs.

His mother Mary Ann re-married a few years later to David Seymour of Green's Farm in Ely. Edward went on to become a Horse Keeper on Barton Farm, Ely.

Edward married Mary Ann Cross of Ely and the couple had seven children.

Tragically, their second daughter Grace (born 1891) and their oldest son Edward (born 1894) both died in their infancy.

The existence of Edward junior was not discovered and then revealed to his nieces until 2004. He had died at just 4 hours old, born prematurely and died from Atelectasis (an under inflated/developed lung).
