Born in Bath in 1810, the son of a Church of England vicar, Edward Neale was educated at Oxford, Cardinal Newman among his mentors. After qualifying for the bar in 1837 Neale became a Christian Socialist, an energetic supporter of working menís educational schemes and particularly of the cooperative movement.

A memorial to him can be seen in St Paulís Cathedral.
