Memorable Manitobans: Edward A. Partridge (1862-1931)

Farm leader.

Born in Simcoe County, Ontario in 1862, he was raised on the family farm until the age of 21 when he joined his brother on a homestead near the town of Sintaluta, Saskatchewan. He later left the farm and taught school at Broadview, Saskatchewan. He served with the Yorkton Rangers during the 1885 North West Rebellion, after which he returned to his farm. After some years he organized the first farmers’ company to sell grain. He became the first President of the Saskatchewan United Growers’ Association. He was later involved with the United Farmers of Manitoba and its newspaper, the Grain Growers Guide. He retired from farming and moved to Victoria, British Columbia where he died on 3 August 1931, apparently as a result of gas asphyxiation.
