Sir Edward J. Reed was a British naval architect and civil engineer. He was also an investor in land development, drainage projects, and railroads in Florida at the end of the 1800's. In 1881, Hamilton Disston had purchased 4,000,000 acres of state lands and created a company to build canals and to drain the swamplands on this land. To help finance the company, Disston sold 2,000,000 acres of his land to Reed in 1882. Reed resold the land he purchased over the next twenty years.
