Edwin T. Arnold was born in Exeter, Rhode Island, but spent most of his life on the family farm in East Greenwich that came down from the early Huguenots. His mother was a Mawney whose ancestor, Moses Lemoine, was one of the early Frenchtown proprietors. Edwin was a carpenter who did most of his work for the railroad, finishing Pullman cars. He was also a life-long farmer, and his great grandson once met a fellow named Kenyon who said "Ed Arnold grew the best turnips in the area." After the Navy forced him to abandon and sell the farm (that had been in the family for eight generations) during World War II, he went to live with his son, Frank Arnold, at 238 Wilbur Avenue in historic Oaklawn (Cranston), and this is where he resided when he died.

Edwin was twice married. His first marriage to Mary Frances Gardner ended in divorce and he was left with his infant twin sons. He soon thereafter married Rosalind Rose, with whom he had four more children.
