Edmund Charles Hobson (1814-1848), physician and naturalist, was baptised on 10 August 1814 at Parramatta, the son of Edmund Hobson, and a second cousin of Captain William Hobson. At 2 he was sent to Van Diemen's Land where he was brought up by his maternal grandfather. As a youth he studied under Dr James Scott, the colonial surgeon; later he went to Europe to complete his education. In London he studied comparative anatomy under Professor Robert Grant, and became acquainted with Sir Richard Owen (1804-1892) the distinguished British naturalist. Hobson also completed a medical course, obtaining his diploma from the University of Erlangen, Bavaria. In September 1837 he married Margaret, daughter of John Adamson, a substantial London merchant in Walbrook.

Edward William Hobson (1816-1890?), grazier, was baptised at Parramatta. As a youth he served as a sailor on ships plying between Tasmania, New Zealand, Western Australia and Port Phillip. Early in 1837 he established a small run on the Darebin Creek, near Melbourne. By June 1837 he had moved to the south-eastern shores of Port Phillip Bay and held a run, Kangerong, on the slopes of Arthur's Seat. This was followed by the establishment of Tootgarook, a run between Rye and Point Nepean. In 1843 he also took over a run at Tarwin Meadows, on Anderson's Inlet and held it until January 1845.
