Edwards, John (b. 1731, d. 18 AUG 1781)
Note: John Edwards was a merchant who emigrated from Bristol, England, about 1750. His origins are unknown beyond that, but he mentioned a widowed sister in his will living in Holywell, Flintshire, North Wales. That might provide a clue to the family origins.

His firm in Charleston, Edwards, Fisher and Company, was very successful and he was among the wealthier merchants of the city, dealing in slaves, indentured servants and numerous other commodities. In 1770 he built the house at 15 Meeting Street that still stands, known as the John Edwards House. A library bookcase first owned by John Edwards is on display in the Heyward-Washington House in Charleston, a property of the Charleston Museum. Appraised in Edwards's estate at 100 pounds, it would today undoubtedly fetch well into six figures if not more. A picture of it is in Southern Furniture, The Williamburg Collection.

He early joined the patriot cause in the Revolution and he advanced large sums of money to the nascent government of South Carolina, including a draft of 1000 pounds to provide powder for the attack on the British ship Betsey at St. Augustine. His signature appears on the paper money issued by South Carolina during the Revolution.

In 1768 he was appointed to the Commission of Fortifications and served in the Commons House of Assembly in October and December, 1772. He was a member of both the First and Second Provincial Congresses in 1775. On August 28th, 1777, John Edwards was appointed one of the Naval Commissioners of South Carolina, involved in getting produce to Europe to pay for military supplies.

He was elected to the Privy Council in 1779. When the city of Charleston surrendered to the British in 1780, Admiral Arbuthnot, the commander of Royal Navy forces in Charleston, was quartered in John Edwards's house, the family being allowed to retain a portion of it. Arbuthnot, without success, tried to convert Edwards to the British cause.

Edwards was among the leaders of Charleston deported to St. Augustine on August 1780 where they stayed until June of 1781 when they were exchanged and allowed to go to Philadelphia.

Edwards died suddenly on August 18, 1781. His friend Josiah Smith recorded in his diary that "This day was buried, in Arch Street Church burying Ground, the remains of my Friend, Neighbor and Companion in Exile, John Edwards, Esqr. who suddenly exchanged this (I hope) for a happier existence, the preceding evening by a Fit of apoplexy. This melancholy event took place, previous to the arrival here of his much afflicted Widow, and numerous Children, and his family thereby lost a most valuable head, Religion a True friend, and the Public a most hearty Supporter of American freedom."
