Edmund Hamer Broadbent

Edmund Hamer Broadbent

Lived 1861 - 1945

A Christian missionary and author who was described as being a “tidy-looking English gentleman with a bookish side who discovered ways of slipping into and out of countries that others just assumed were ‘closed doors.’ He was not a big man, and his pleasant, easygoing manner would not have conjured in your mind the picture of the fearless missionary.”

Born in Lancashire, England, Broadbent operated under the auspices of the Plymouth Brethren movement.
