Edward Ede was educated at Eton but, although a good allrounder, did not obtain a place in the XI. A batsman of considerable skill, he also kept wicket and bowled lobs with success on many occasions: he learnt to bowl through watching old Clarke coaching the boys at Eton. Ede was closely associated with Hampshire cricket all his life, and to the day of his death took the keenest interest in the fortunes of the county. For many years he was editor of the Hampshire County Cricket Guide, and for almost a quarter of a century, commencing in 1882, was honorary scorer to the county team. At one time he was prominently identified with the turf, having several horses in training. His twin brother, GM Ede, was a very well-known gentleman jockey: he won the Grand National on The Lamb for Earl Poulett in 1868, and was killed two years later when riding Chippenham for the same owner in the Sefton Steeplechase at Liverpool.
