Edwin's family have lived and worked in the Southern Midlands area for nearly 200 years. His grandfather was instrumental in building our state's first hydro scheme and his father Charles was a Councillor here for many years and served for 19 years in the Tasmanian Parliament. The family sheep farm is "Woodlands" at Melton Mowbray, which Edwin now runs.

Edwin practised as a Barrister on the mainland and then as a Magistrate for 23 years before returning to work as a wool classer and farmer on his property, with his wife Martine and his young son Dominic. He is vitally concerned to create  a positive environment for the development of agriculture in the district and to maintain and preserve its heritage and history so as to make the Southern Midlands a great place to live and bring up children. He serves as a volunteer on the Jericho Fire Brigade and a number of community committees.

Edwin's interests are horse racing, football, cricket, the arts, and Tasmania's history.
