Edmund was baptised at Yalding, Kent on 25 April 1824 to Meshach Gardiner and his wife Sarah Jones. His father was an agricultural labourer with at least 6 children. Edmund appears to have begun his criminal career at an early age and had been acquitted of felony on two occasions before being sentenced to imprisonment for 2 months at the Maidstone Quarter Sessions on 1 Jul 1841. On 6 Jan 1842 he was again tried for larceny and sentenced to 10 years transportation. He arrived in Tasmania 11 Jul 1842 and was assigned to William Morton, Westbury. On 12 Sep 1862 he may have travelled as an AB on the Alarm from Hobart to Sydney.
