Born in Penderyn, Brecknock, but moved early in life to Cefn-Coed-y-Cymer. At the time of his death, 20 August 1837, at the age of eighty-five, he had been a member of Hen-Dŷ-Cwrdd Unitarian church, Cefn-Coed-y-Cymer, for 60 years. He had been married for 50 years; four children survived him. At one period the church paid him ' Charity to Edward Harri 1/- '. The following item also appears in the church books - ' July 22, 1827, Edward Harri, weaver, and his wife have been restored and partook of the Lord's Supper.' He composed several poems, but only two appear to have survived: ' Galargan ar ol ei wraig ' and ' Cynghorion idd ei ŵyr.' He was a brother of William Harri, of Garw-dyle, Penderyn.
