Edward Haddock was born in Barnton England 14 Dec 1839, the son of Mary Haddock. Mary was born 8 Oct 1820, the daughter of John Haddock and Elizabeth Beach. During his early life he lived with his grandparents. Mary married William Jackson and Edward went to live with his mother and stepfather. Edward left school at eleven and went to sea as a cabin boy on a freight boat running from Manchester to Ireland. In his leisure time he read and studied and became well informed on many subjects. By the time he was eighteen he had worked up to the position of captain of the boat and his uncle, John Haddock was first mate.

Edward and his mother and uncle John joined the church in 1853. William Jackson died 4 Jan 1860 and after assuming care of his mother, Edward, his uncle John and mother came to America in 1861, arriving in Salt Lake 12 Sep 1861.
