Hinder, Edward Robert (1829–1894)

Edward Robert Hinder was born in India. He was educated in Ireland and came to Adelaide in the Hughli in 1846. By 1849 he was living at Ebenezer, New South Wales. He began his teaching career in 1852 at St James’s Church of England School at Pitt Town, subsequently teaching at Anglican schools in Kelso (from 1857), Wilberforce (1860) and Smithfield (1871). Appointed principal of the Protestant Orphan School at Parramatta in 1873, he remained there until he retired in 1885. He married Sophia Ford on 11 February 1851.

Hinder had no formal art training but sketched as a hobby. His grandson, Frank Hinder, became a noted sculptor.
