Administrative / Biographical history

Sir Edward Knox (1819-1901) founded the Colonial Sugar Refining Co. in 1855 and was the company's first chairman of directors. He handed the general management of the company over to his second son Edward William in 1880, but remained chairman until 1901. In June 1844 he married Martha, sister of William Rutledge.

Edward William Knox (1847-1933) joined C.S.R. in April 1864 as a junior clerk. He was appointed general manager of the company in 1880, becoming chairman and managing director in 1920. He resigned as managing director in December 1932, and resigned from the board of C.S.R in February 1933. He married Edith, daughter of J. S. Willis in 1878.
