Biographical data
Name: Löwe, Edward  
Born: 23 Sep. 1794
Died: 25 Feb. 1880
 
Notes:
Gaige gives date of death as 25-02-1880; Sergeant gives 24-02-1880. Kieseritzky mentions a match or matches between 'M. Leade et le capitaine Kennedy' (in La Régence, 1849, v.1, p.43), which must, I suppose refer to the matches between Kennedy and Edward Löwe, not 'Leade'.
