Edgar Edwards was born1944 in the district of New Rumble in the Parish of St. Andrew. After leaving school at age 13, he went with his mother in the nearby community called Westphalia to farm on the Straw Berry Hill’s property. Edgar soon learned the skills of farming and decided to have his own farm on which he farmed cash crops. The income from this work was minimal, so he decided to seek additional employment. He went to work with the Forestry Department and later the Coffee Industry Board as a laborer. He worked with the Coffee Industry Board for over ten years.
