He lived at Abermeurig, in the vale of Ayron, and was a landed proprietor in the parishes of Nantcwnlle and Llanddewi-brefi. He was a friend and neighbour of John Jones, farmer, of Llwyn-rhys, the leading Independent in central Cardiganshire. Edwards was a competent scholar and was ordained assistant minister to David Jones (c. 1630 - 1704?), at Caeronnen, Cellan, and other churches in the circuit, namely Crug-y-maen, Llwyn-rhys, and Cilgwyn. He died 29 September 1716, aged 56, and in his will left books to the ministers, Philip Pugh and Jenkin Jones (1695 - 1725) - (see Jones family of Llwyn-rhys), who were at the time his colleagues in the circuit. His grand-daughter Elinor married Daniel Rowland of Llangeitho.
