His mother took Edgar, his brother William, and sister Rosalie to Richmond, where his mother died on December 8, 1811, and Edgar was taken into the family of John and Frances Allan, a childless couple.
He was taken by the Allan family to England in 1815. Edgar spent his early childhood at prestigious private schools, including the Manor House School of Doctor Bransby at Stoke Newington, he was an excellent student. When they returned to the United States he continued attending private schools, and studied Latin, verse, and oratory. He was an athletic child, a great swimmer and marksman (A man skilled in shooting at a target.). However he was not popular and was teased by kids because he was the son of actors, (a dishonorable profession).
