Edward Edwards was baptised on the 2nd October 1631 in St Just in Penwith, Cornwall.  His father was John Edwards but his mother's name is currently unknown. So are the names of his siblings.

His surname is sometimes record as 'Edward' without the plural 's'.

Marriage[]

Edward married Phillipa Worden at St Just in Penwith on 21st October 1648. She was the daughter of Anthony and Jane Worden (nee Ladner) of St Just in Penwith.

Edward and Phillipa would settle in St Just in Penwith and had  eight known children there.

Death of Child[]

Edward and Phillipa's eldest child Richard died and was buried at the age of only 18 months on 27th June 1650. They would name their next child born after him.

Hearth Tax[]

The Hearth Tax database for Cornwall contains two records for an Edward Edwards of St Just in Penwith being required to pay hearth tax in the year 1664 (one under the name of Edward Edwards, the other under the name of Edward Edwards senior). If one of these men is our Edward, it meant he had a chimney in the house he was residing. The return entry for the record lists '1 ex' , which indicates that the presence of a chimney had been checked. Edward would have been required to pay two shillings in tax for the chimney.

Death[]

Edward was buried at St. Just in Penwith on 15th November 1672, aged 41 years of age. His youngest child was 7 years old at the time. Phillipa would outlive him by 35 years.
