Edward Coode Hore was born on 23 July 1848. He was appointed to the Lake Tanganyika Mission with the London Missionary Society. Arrived at Zanzibar August 1877. Arrived at Kirasa and remained there until May 1878, and set out for the Lake, arriving there August 1878. In 1880, he explored the southern part of the Lake in the ‘Calabash’, leaving Ujiji 17 March and returning 20 May. Left Ujiji November 1880 and arrived in England, February 1881.

Returned to Central Africa, arriving at Ujiji February 1883, conveying the sections of the lifeboat, the ‘Morning Star’, which was launched 21 May 1883. In July, he proceeded in the Morning Star to the south end of Lake Tanganyika, to await the arrival of sections of the steam vessel, the ‘Good News’, and made arrangements for the reconstruction of the vessel. Captain Hore settled at Kavala Island. In 1888, being in ill-health, he left Kavala Island and arrived in England in October 1888.
