Edward Ruskin in 1983 at Emmerdale.

Edward Ruskin was first seen in the show during Sharon Crossthwaite's dissapearance and revelation that she had been murdered. Jim Latimer confessed to Rev Ruskin that he had killed Sharon. Ruskin and his wife Liz lived at the vicarage in Beckindale. Ruskin and village churchwarden Wally Lumm had a disagreement in 1974 over divorced women joining the Womans Union.

In May 1975 Ruskin and his wife left the village after he was transferred to another parish. There was a nice send off for him at the village hall. Mr Matthews later became Rev Ruskin's replacement. Rev Ruskin was not seen in the village for the next 8 years.

In May 1983 Rev Ruskin returned to Beckindale as a stand in vicar for Rev Hinton when he was away. He helped Seth Armstrong and Meg Armstrong reconcile. That was Ruskin's final visit to the village. He was never seen or heard from again.
