Edward Winstanley was born in London, England, April 14, 1849.  He went to the public schools of London, but received his later and finishing education at Nutgrove College in Dublin.  When only sixteen years old he emigrated to Canada, locating in Montreal, where he remained until 1874.

     In the spring of that year he came to Jackson County, where he has ever since resided.

     Settling in Independence, Mr. Winstanley was for some time engaged in the mercantile business.

     In 1896 he was appointed superintendent of the Court-house, which position he now holds.  The court-houses here and at Independence and the jail buildings are all under his care, and to his energy is due their splendid maintenance.

   Mr. Winstanley was married in 1879 to Miss Sallie Dunn, of Independence.  They have four children, William, Edward, Edith, and Emma.

     Mr. Winstanley has always been identified with the Democratic party, and is recognized as one of the most active and ablest workers in Jackson County.

     He is an Elk, holding a life membership in that organization
