son of Samuel Edwards of Mold. He matriculated from All Souls, Oxford, in October 1758, ‘aged 17,’ and graduated in 1762 — Foster gives no indication of the M.A. which is given him in other works of reference. Even before graduating he had been licensed (21 December 1760) curate at Wrexham, and in 1777 he became also vicar of Cilcain, Flintshire. From 1782 till his death he was vicar of Llanarmon-yn-Iâl — retaining, however, his curacy at Wrexham, where he had married a widow who lived there. In 1801 he brought out an enlarged (two-volume) edition of Browne Willis's Survey of … St. Asaph. He died 7 August 1820.
