Edward Cadogan (1833 - 1890) was a British clergyman and rower who won Silver Goblets at Henley Royal Regatta.

Cadogan was born at Caerfyrddin Sain Pedr, Carmarthenshire, Wales, the son of Colonel Edward Cadogan and his wife Virginia de Beaumassoir. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford and was a rower at the university. In 1854 he partnered W F Short to win Silver Goblets at Henley. In 1855 the pair were runners up in Silver Goblets to A. A. Casamajor and Josias Nottidge..[1]

Cadogan took holy orders and in 1872 became rector of Wicken, Northamptonshire [2] and added a new wing at the Rectory at cost of £300 in 1873, not long after his arrival in the parish.[3] Cadogan was concerned with the village school which In 1875 he claimed that he found 'struggling into life and health'. Within three years Cadogan placed it on a sound footing and there were about 80 children on the books. He appealed for increased subscriptions and threatened a school board if these were not forthcoming. He offered to hand the management over to the subscribers or their elected representatives.[3]

Cadogan died at Wicken in 1890.

Cadogan married Alice Smith in 1856. Their daughter Blanche Ann married Walter William Carlile, MP for Buckinghamshire.[4] Their son Lieutenant-Colonel Henry Osbert Samuel Cadogan 1st Battalion, Royal Welsh Fusiliers was killed in action on 30 October 1914.[5]
