Little is known of Edward Waine except that, along with other prominent residents of Marple, he was a member of the first Select Vestry which was established in 1820 by Act of Parliament for 'the management of the concerns of the poor of Marple'. This Vestry was formed of ‘gentlemen being substantial householders or occupiers of land within the Township of Marple’
