Edward Sackett Hume was Principal of Hume Memorial School in Bombay. There was also a Hume Memorial Church in Bombay as well. He was a classics scholar. His daughter in law, Lotta Carswell Hume, indicates that he educated his children at the school. His children spoke and wrote various Indian languages.

"Of her fifteen years in India it should be said that a large portion of her time and that of her husband was given to organizing schools. They started about forty, chiefly day schools, in Bombay and the nearer regions. For ten years Mrs. Hume carried on in her own home a boarding school for girls. When a son, Edward, returned to India, in 1877, he reopened it at the persuasion of former pupils and it developed into one of the leading High Schools in the Marathi Mission, the Byculla High School with over six hundred pupils."
