After a distinguished military career he defended classical mountaineering against what he saw as unhelpful trends in the sport for speed. Strutt was the son of Hon. Arthur Strutt and Alice Mary Elizabeth Philips de Lisle. His paternal grandfather was Edward Strutt, 1st Baron Belper.
Strutt was the youngest of 6 children (3 boys and 3 girls).

They went on to have two sons in 1884, Arnold Unwin & Raymond Hugh (presumed twins) while posted in Colombo. In August 1890 Strutt was appointed as 2nd Minister for the Oxford Road Chapel in Rusholme, Lancashire, England. This is a post he would hold with the church until 1893.

Many believe that Edward had always intended that William the Conqueror, his natural cousin, become his heir but was premature in making his intentions known
Many believe that Edward had always intended that William the Conqueror, his natural cousin, become his heir but was premature in making his intentions known. This school of thought takes Edward’s celibacy as intentional although it wasn’t until Edward’s serious quarrel with Godwin that he offered the throne to William. Edmund’s son Edward Aethling was exiled to Hungary at a young age and had the best claim to the English throne following Edward’s death but died under suspicious circumstances on his return to England in 1057.
