Edward Stanley Gibbons was an English stamp dealer and founder of Stanley Gibbons Ltd, publishers of the famous Stanley Gibbons stamp catalogue and other stamp-related books and magazines.
Gibbons returned to England shortly after the death of his fourth wife. On 16 January 1909, he married Sophia Crofts. However, it is possible that he and Sophia separated before his death in 1913 as his will makes no mention of her.
His will executed in July 1912, has his address, ‘Selsey’, 63 Stanthorpe Road, Streatham and his estate was left to 'a dear friend', Mabel Hedgecoe
