General Notes: In his Watts Family Records, Caspar Graham states:
Edmund went to Cheltenham College from August 1861 to April 1869. While there he met and became friends with The Peel brothers.
On leaving the school he applied, and passed with flying colours, the examination for the Straights Settlements Cadet Service. His fellow cadet was Frank Swettenham, first Resident General of the Malay States, and they were posted to Singapore, Edmund becoming Acting Assistant Colonial Secretary. Swettenham was to write of Edmund, "a brilliant and accomplished person with whom I was proud to be linked as a Far Eastern Cadet." Edmund later became the Collector of Land Revenue in Malacca. It seems there may have been some financial impropriety for which he resigned his post (Singapore or Malacca?) in 1875.
He married Annina Elizabeth, the sister of the Peel brothers, probably in 1875, possibly overseas. They were to have two children before he died around 1879.
She remarried.
